  1. Happy Monday everyone! The sun will rise 28,835 times over the course of the average human lifespan of 79 years. If you want to be one of the first to catch it some morning, you’ll have to travel to Cadillac Mountain in Bar Harbor, ME. The 1,532-foot peak on Mount Desert Island is said to be the first sight of sunrise in the continental United States. The drive up to the summit takes about half an hour and sunrise this morning is exactly at 5:00am.

    There weren’t any new clue words in our first puzzle of the week. Three of the scrambles were, with CANKS being our only repeat. LEESQU was the toughest for me to solve as I originally had it pegged as SQUEEL. It didn’t look right though, and SEQUEL just happened to dawn on me a few seconds later.

    Fine cartoon of Jumble artist Jeff Knurek and his wife Kathy catching a sunrise. The rocky coastline gave me a Maine vibe, but noticing the palm trees on Jeff’s shorts makes me think they’re probably somewhere tropical. Both of them were wearing shirts with band logos on them. Jeff’s said Poi, while Kathy was wearing a Wilco one with an image of a hummingbird on it. On the table was an “I ♥️ Jumble” coffee mug and a pot of coffee. In the background was a sinking sailboat and just in front of it was a dolphin jumping out of the water. My favorite detail had to be the length of Jeff’s hair. He let it grow long during the pandemic as evidenced in previous panels, but in today’s it was noticeably shorter and neatly trimmed.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters. The dialogue and rays of sunSHINE would have been great clues had I not seen RISE in the layout. With those letters crossed out the rest took no effort to spot. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day.

  3. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…🌞🙋🏻‍♀️

    🎶 Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces…Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here…Here comes the SUN..do, do, do…Here comes the SUN….And I say it’s all right…🎶 “Here Comes The Sun” – The Beatles 1969 https://tinyurl.com/7ptv7e5f

    🌞 An early morning Sunrise, it isn’t HUMID yet,
    So sitting on a terrace, our couple has no regret…
    Just drinking some hot coffee, with no need for a SNACK,
    They’ve just awoken to the day, the Sandman fading back…
    The air is cool, refreshing, waves are INWARD toward the shore,
    A SEQUEL to their yesterday…they know they’re in store for
    Another day of tropic bliss…seafood on which to dine
    But right now with the Sunrise…it’s just bask in RISE AND SHINE! 🌞

  4. 🤷🏻‍♂️ In a SEQUEL to yesterday, they tried keeping their resentment INWARD, but terribly regretted doing the whole RISE AND SHINE thing so early again this morning… just to sit outside waiting in the oppressively HUMID weather, without coffee or anything to SNACK on…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🤦🏻‍♀️ With HUMID weather looming, she thought to bring a SNACK,
    Her INWARD feeling being that she’d cover her own back…
    She didn’t want a SEQUEL to what happened just last week,
    When heat exhaustion got to her as soon as noon time peaked…
    She tossed and turned so anxiously…Too late maybe she dined?
    But if she doesn’t get some sleep…there’ll be no RISE AND SHINE…🤦🏻‍♀️

  5. Good morning. A pleasant Monday jumble. Just like Mike my first thought was Squeel. Then realizing it’s spelled different my second thought came right away. As for the cartoon answer I needed the letters to solve it which came rather quickly. At boot camp in the Navy that expression was used every morning to wake the barracks up along with greet the new day grab your socks followed by unprintable last part. Nice song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  6. In its very predictable way,
    From the first to the last little ray.
    No matter the season
    It gives rhythm and reason
    Yes, the sun really does make our day!

    • Good Morning, Helen…I love the whimsy of your last line!

      The Sun and the Moon and their ways,
      I don’t think of in terms of malaise…
      Do they get any sleep?
      Not a thought that I keep…
      I just think of them as Nights and Days! 🌞🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thank you Angela. Yes, limericks depend on the whimsical and summing up the essence of the topic.

  7. Easy Monday morning with a blind solve…. though couldn’t put my fingers on SNACK for the longest moment and backed in INWARD. Enjoy the week.

  8. A quick solve this Monday morning after an hesitation with SEQUEL.
    A problem with the sun is we wish it and then we hide from it. This morning the sun is up so is a beautiful cool breeze while I jumble on my deck and have my usual slow pace breakfast.
    Enjoy the week!

  9. I don’t know what I enjoy more! Solving these fun puzzles or getting on here and seeing Angela’s amazing poetic ability and Mike’s commentaries! They always hit home with me! After a few years together, in the late 80’s, my boyfriend and I decided to take a vacation to Acadia, ME. So, I am very familiar with Cadillac Mt., Bar Harbor, and have visited numerous times since. The other stop we made on that very first trip, was Lubec, ME. The eastern most point in the U.S. where my favorite lighthouse is, the red and white striped beauty, West Quoddy! I had seen her in calendar pics, as a child growing up, and vowed that I would see her in person someday! I almost felt like crying, when I finally got to stand there and reach out and touch her! And yes, as a side note… I married that boyfriend of mine, by the way, albeit 10 years later, and after all of these years, yep, we are still together and he’s still my boyfriend! 🤭😆

    • …And isn’t it grand when the boyfriend and the husband can be one and the same? 😂 I love Maine too. I lived there once for about six months, and seriously thought about buying a second home there…but two things…1- No one was willing to re-locate with me…and 2 – no one there seemed to understand my accent! 😂 Thanks for the Shout Out, Kimberly…Have a good one! 🌞🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Morning Kim. What an amazing story you shared! I’m glad you brought up West Quoddy Head because it’s the location of the first sunrise for a few months of the year. Sometimes it’s Mars Hill near the Canadian border. In winter, the sun rises farther to the south, and slowly moves north along the horizon during the warmer months which changes the location. Have a great Monday!

            • Thoroughly enjoyed reading the Old Jumble Post and Messages! And nice to see that many of the Jumble Gang is still on here! Thanks Again, Angela! Cheers!

        • If I recall correctly, you actually posted your writeup for this Jumble at exactly 4:45 AM Eastern time also!
          I also love that the name of the Easternmost point in the United States begins with “West…”

          • LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻 Coincidentally, I just posted that oldie for Kim…😂 And you remembered that? Bravo! You, (of all people), 😉 know that my memory is shot. It wasn’t doing all that great as it was…but now…with the pandemic residual? I’m a total lost cause! In fact, just now, I couldn’t even remember where I left my checkbook…you know to write that check I was talking about?… Actually, I asked Lou if he’d write one for me…He told me to go down to the dock…and wait to see if his ship comes in…Ok, so maybe not in those exact words…😂😂 Bless his heart! 🙋🏻‍♀️

              • No, he knows I tend to get jealous when he brings up OLD girlfriends!!! 😂😂😂

              • …And I wish the like button was still here…but rest assured, we’re both high-fiving you! 🙌🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

          • Oh My Gosh Steve! That never occurred to me! 😆 There is an East Quoddy over in Canada. Been to that lighthouse just once. It’s so pretty over there, but a little hairy getting to. You have to climb down a small cliff on a metal rung ladder at low tide. And God forbid you stay too long, because the tide will come in and you’ll be stuck there for 12 hrs!

      • Wow! You know I think I saw that on a morning news show one time! They were standing at West Quoddy to usher in the day! Thanks Mikey!

        • You’re welcome Kim. Maine is such a beautiful place. I stayed at my brother’s house up there this past weekend. My son and I kayaked across the lake and met a woman and her boyfriend who once lived in our town about 30 years ago. Small world! I told her she wouldn’t recognize her old digs as so much has changed.

          • OH MAN! You’re making me jealous! 😂 I wish I could have been there! So glad you were able to do that with your son! We have had encounters with folks like that, as well, and are always amazed at how small our beautiful world is! It’s almost uncanny! I once had a friend tell me… you can put 100 strangers together in a room, and somebody will be able to make a connection to someone! I guess it’s like that six degrees of Kevin Bacon 🥓 thing that went around a few years back! Haha! 😁

            • I agree with you, Kim. It seems as though I’m always bumping into someone I know no matter where I go.

              It’s definitely a different kind of lifestyle the further north you go. I quickly learned that speed limits are only suggestions and it’s also perfectly acceptable to drive an atv down the road to get to the convenience store! Fun times!

              • I hear ya! The same happens in our area! We get a lot of tractors on the secondary roads, and in some areas have to be very careful of Amish horse and buggies!

            • Hard to believe – I have just received a gift of salt water taffy, in the mail today from family members on vacation in Bal Harbor, Maine. I’m looking forward to eating the taffy.

  10. So…I belong to this buy/sell/trade Baseball Card thing…This morning, I get a notification that a 1952 Mantle card is afloat. And I figure, what the heck, I’m game…And whadd’ya know…it’s only going for $127,600! A mere bag of shells! 🤦🏻‍♀️…But it gets better…there’s a chance of a 20% discount…which then makes it only $94,080! Well, now that makes a world of difference! Quick…where’s my checkbook??? 😂😂 And this should keep us all amused for a while, don’t you think? 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

  11. LOL! Speaking of accents, they have that Bah Habah, and Lobstah Dinnah, accent going on up there! 😂😂 How nice you were able to live there for a time! I hope you still get to visit often! Take care, Angela! ☺️

    • Exactly! 😂😂 And yet? 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ You take care too, Kimberly. Stay well! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  12. Each morning brings a new Jumble and our chance to Rise And Shine again. So look Inward, munch a Snack, prepare for the Sequel to yesterday’s Humid day on the Great Plains. Song of the day: “Good Morning Star Shine.”

  13. Hi all – Usually a “QU” makes a word easy, but I first saw “squeal” and then took a surprisingly long time to get “sequel”. (Reading the posts later, I see I’m not alone!) The answer was pretty obvious.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “For a SEQUEL to their breakfast, the HUMID day forced them to just grab a few items at the SNACK shack and head INWARD for lunch.”

    • Nice Sentence Steve. The clue words had a good flow to them which made it easy to read.
      It’s only Monday and I’m already looking forward to the games this weekend. I’m running out of brooms! 😅

  14. Just got back from a 2000+ mile trip,accessed the Jumble online,nd missed on sequel ,nd the cartoon answer only getting the first word,rise!
