  1. Good Morning, Everyone….. 🙏🏻 CLEANLINESS…IS NEXT TO GODLINESS… 🙏🏻

    🎶 Why don’t you answer my PRAYER…You know every day I say a little prayer…I said, I say, I say a little prayer…🎶 “I Say a Little Prayer” – Dionne Warwick 1968 https://tinyurl.com/yk2ta5rh

    🙏🏻 The Minister took his STYLUS, about a month gone past,
    And on his iPad he agreed to pressure wash…Die cast…
    He RARELY had it done before, but he felt time was due,
    The Church now had a GAUZE-like pall…from windows down to pew
    He’s hoping that there’ll be no hitch, now that it’s on the docket…
    (And he believing like a Scot, good luck PLAID’s in his pocket)
    The crew, all being congregants…will be back here Sunday…
    But now the Minister just says…”Ok, men..LET US “SPRAY”! 🙏🏻

    Today it looks like we may have a new Jumble theme. We’ve done golf to a T, we’ve been around the block quite a few times with cars, and we’ve had enough horses to…well to choke a horse. But Pressure Washing? Soap…I mean Nope…not so far. So it’s nice to have something clean and fresh for us to pray with today…

    …And with words that are tried and true, the Early Birds had no trouble getting the job done this morning…They cleaned up in no time,

    Ok, a Church, in need of a pressure washing. Standing out front, we find our three-man crew assuring our Minister that they’re Heaven sent, and he’s nothing to worry about. But our Minister, perhaps feeling the pressure of living up to the congregation’s expectations, and worried that he might get hosed, seems a little wishy-washy about the whole thing, and answers that he’ll say a little prayer that it all goes well. And our solve? Ladies and Gentlemen…LET US “SPRAY”! Alleluia! Another one bites the dust!

    As for Jeff’s Gems…Except for the two tiny droplets of water seen dripping from the wands, the only other thing that washed up this morning falls under the sin of omission. With just the soul worker wearing protective glasses, one can’t help but wonder where are the glasses of the other two? Just playing devil’s advocate…

    So, There you have it, Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…Amen…🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Whispering to herself, LET US PRAY, she quickly removed the sign advertising the PLAID, GAUZE sweaters, when she saw it read…”The latest STYLUS”…and remembered why she RARELY used that Ad Agency…🤦🏻‍♀️

    ✒️ He RARELY used the STYLUS, when the graphic work he drew,
    He had a GAUZE-like feather touch, so felt his hand would do…
    But with this new PLAID-filled cartoon, today might be the day
    He takes a shot, hoping it works…while thinking…LET US PRAY! ✒️

  3. Good morning. I bailed on Stylus and the cartoon answer as I’m short on time and can’t concentrate. Thanks Angela for correcting me on the sentence yesterday. I really thought I had it correct. The only thing that might have happened was when I put callus in the phone it corrected it to callous which I never noticed. Good song choice today. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Believe me, the spelling of those two words has been a thorn in many a side…for a long time. So, it’s definitely understandable. And as I said, your sentence was spot on. 👏🏻👏🏻. As for today’s solve? Water you gonna do? There’s always tomorrow! Glad you enjoyed the music…and here’s to you staying well and safe too. Enjoy your day, Paul…At least it finally stopped raining! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Very clever puzzle solution today! Do they come up with “Let Us Spray” then back into the anagrams?
    RARELY and STYLUS slowed me down for a few moments.
    Maybe a Harry Stylus song from Angela?
    Hot, hot hot here and humid! YIKES! We are poised for fire season. Sad.
    Tomorrow is a new day! Let’s rule!!

    • It is very clever, Mig…David’s wit never ceases to amaze me…And Harry “STYLUS” gave me a chuckle! This weather? Let’s just pray that it improves. Have a good one, Mig. Stay safe. 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi Everybody – The anagrams came quickly…too quickly. I had Palid (pallid) down by mistake. Trying Us as the second answer word led me to the cute solution and my mistake.
    I’ve been enjoying the charming limericks of Helen and Angela as well as Betty’s great Pelican find that started it all. I read the man who wrote the Pelican limerick had a distinguished career in journalism but was perhaps most remembered for this limerick.

    • Caroline, I’m with you on the word plaid; every time the guys use it I want to think pallid, but with only one “l” plaid has to be the word. Weather here in South Georgia is basically good with summer humidity and afternoon pop up showers..glad Miss Elsa moved on up the coast…down near our coast some reported nearly 8 inches of rain..Happy Jumbling!!

      • Good to hear I have company, Alan. Usually I have an inkling when I misspell a word but not with Palid. The weather sadly is causing trouble for many.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. Tk you. I’m enjoying it too. Limericks are fun…they always seem to make people smile. And good research on Merritt. All too often, his famous limerick is mistakenly attributed to Ogden Nash, the Prince of Puns, IMO. But as good as Mr Nash was, he didn’t wing the Pelican pun! 😉 Enjoy your day Caroline. Hope it’s a good one! 🦅🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Angela…thanks for the Burt Bacharach song today. Apt, to say the least. Another blind solve this morning…how much longer can that last ?? Struggled on RARELY, but zipped through STYLUS. Whomever is hot and dry out there…I hope you get some rain relief. See you Sunday morning.

    • Good Morning, Terry. Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed it. Always one of my favorites. And I’m sure you’ll agree that Bacharach’s songbook is a treasure trove in itself. And yes, the song definitely fits the bill this morning. As for this weather? How sad that we here on the East coast are bailing out, while our neighbors to the West are desperate for the least bit of rain. The imbalance of Nature. Have a good one, Terry. Stay well. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Writing this limerick while watching Wimbledon final, (thankfully no tennis puns today!) so it has taken me a bit longer….. and I’m focusing on the washers.

    The washers were keen to impress
    On the temp. of the water no less.
    “Whether colder or hotter
    This is real holy water
    So, Reverend, please will you bless?”

    • Good Morning, Helen. 👏🏻👏🏻 Holy water, indeed! Ok…I’ll LOB this one out…😉🙋🏻‍♀️

      Soap and water…all set to begin,
      And the Minister jokes with a grin…
      The man’s witty for sure
      Part of his grand allure…
      He’s not there just to deal with man’s sins!

  8. All the anagrams’ spellings were tricky to me.
    The placement of vowels was slow to me, though they helped to give away STYLUS. The solve was a classic and still funny. I did fail on the one about the daughter receiving her Dad’s fishing gear. Still unsolved.

  9. On the road again.The Colorado thin air has affected my brain(just kidding)so stylus got me as did the cartoon solution.Plus the absence of a real newspaper also was a deterrent to a solve.

    • Way to go, Eleanor. 👏🏻👏🏻! Have a wonderful day! 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Stylus was the word that took me the longest to solve this morning but once I figured that one out, everything else fell into place nicely. Wishing all of you a good day.

  11. Hi all – PLAID took a second look after thinking “palid” (but realizing that that’s “pallid”). Then I had to stare for awhile before recognizing STYLUS from previous uses. The answer was pretty obvious, and I thought they came unusually close to using a word in the answer and cartoon with “prayer” and “(s)pray”.

    Great summary with “wishy-washy” and “devil’s advocate”, Angela. And you had to know Bacharach was destined for greatness as soon as you heard his first hit record, “The Blob”!  😉

    Helen’s limericks and Angela’s replies to them are a nice addition here, and we really had a bounty of good comments from both long-time and newer contributors today, it seems to me. Good show!

    Good wishes to everyone, and I hope your storms are over.

    “GAUZE pads RARELY came in PLAID until the product designer used his tablet’s software and STYLUS to jazz them up with colors to appeal to the parents of young children.”

    • Hi Steve. Thank you twice…and your lips to God’s ears on the storms…How I wish I could share them with y’all…Nice touch with Stylus! Hope your day’s going well, Steve. Enjoy! …🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️
