  1. Good Morning, Everyone… 🍇 SOUR GRAPES? QUE SYRAH, SYRAH…🍇

    🎶 If you’re down and confused…And you don’t remember who you’re talking to… Don’t be angry, don’t be sad…Don’t sit crying talking good times you’ve had… And if you can’t be with the WINE you love, Honey…Love the WINE you’re with…You gotta love the WINE you’re with…🎶 “Love The One You’re With” (with apologies to) Stephen Sills…w/ Crosby, Nash and Young 1970 https://tinyurl.com/nf9v4mab

    🍷 No matter where you look today, you’re seeing prices rise,
    The way that things are going…it should come as no surprise…
    We can’t ALLOW ourselves to get distraught by what it is…
    Like this couple we see here…who criticize this vineyard’s biz…
    They really need to EXHALE, watch some RUGBY on TV,
    And take it all in stride while they’re enjoying their Chablis
    Instead of getting STINKY-faced, and hot as if to spar…
    Just dig a little deeper…don’t make this place a “WHINE” BAR! 🍷

    I was a little surprised to see a Winery puzzle this morning, since we were just at one exactly a month ago yesterday. https://tinyurl.com/4re8ft3y and before that, in May… https://tinyurl.com/ax4fxuzt Not that there’s anything wrong with that…They were GRAPE puzzles then, and they’re GRAPE puzzles now…and I’m definitely not WINE-ing about it…just a little surprised, that’s all. But I do enjoy these SEDIMENTal journeys to the Wineries, and anyway, I’m sure David has his RIESLINGS…

    So…our words. Nothing new, they’ve all been AGED to perfection. And they posed no problem for the Early Birds. They CRUSHED it. But I think if I hear one more…”GRAPE minds think alike”? I may just blow my CORK…I mean granted, these guys never turn in a POUR performance…but this morning?..Trust me, they were BRUTal…

    Ok, our cartoon…Today’s couple obviously doesn’t believe in keeping things BOTTLED up. Visiting the Bistro at the Jumble Vineyards, we see them SEEDED on VINTAGE wrought iron chairs, surrounded by bottles on the TOP SHELF, (that sport the Signature “J” encircled in a square logo), and overhear them STOMPing on the POUR waitress. He’s complaining about the raised prices and she’s reading between the WINES and griping about the menu’s design. Everything seems to render them HARD PRESSED to say anything nice. Mouths aGRAPE, we see no one smiling…and let’s be honest Folks, if you’re out for a night at a vineyard, you may as well relax and stop to smell the ROSÉS, right? But not these two. They just CHIANTI seem to WINE down and BREATHE in the ambiance. And our POUR waitress, drawing a BLANC, and trying to make a CELLAR effort at serving them, finds herself BORD..EAUX the humanity! And she’s forced to tell them…”Hey, SIP happens…I just work here”. Bottom line? This bistro has turned into a “WHINE” BAR…Slam DRUNK! …I mean slam dunk!

    Jeff’s Gems? The prices listed, top to bottom read: $13-11-14-12-10-12-13. They seem ok to me, but obviously too RICH for our guy’s TASTE. And there’s both a Red and a White wine glass upon the table. But what caught my eye is the waitress, with her thumb SILTed upwards toward herself…As if to ask…”WINE me”?

    So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…And if you’re a wine enthusiast like me, prone to grow more enthusiastic the more wine you drink, keep this in mind…Seven days without wine makes one weak…And you wouldn’t want to fall victim to a POUR decision…🍷🙋🏻‍♀️


    ° The puzzle of 05/08/17…The question: “After watching their team blow a huge lead, the beer pub turned into a” … “WHINE” BAR! 🍻

    ° (And)The puzzle of 11/02/12…The question: “The team’s loss turned the pub into a”.…“WHINE” BAR! 🍷(It was wine that day)!

  3. 🏉 Refusing to ALLOW their loss to the “STINKY rival RUGBY team” (as the local paper put it), get the best of them, they did a slow EXHALE and settled into their favorite booth at the WINE BAR…🏉

    🏉 He never understood RUGBY, it seemed a little odd,
    He never did ALLOW himself to learn…so he’d discard…
    The leaflets that came to the house, announcing local games,
    (And STINKY I won’t use here..I’m not looking to defame)
    He just needs time to EXHALE…there’s enough sports now by far…
    That he’s already into…watching at his fave WINE BAR…🏉

  4. Good morning. What a difference a day makes. Hey, I think I hear a song in there somewhere. Breezed through the words and cruised to the finish line on the cartoon answer. Enjoyed you pick again today Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  5. I had some problems yesterday both with getting J online and with solving the puzzle. Angela told me to relax, Saturday would be better–and it was! No fuss, no muss, no bother………. I have nothing to whine about!
    See y’all for the next J

    • Nothing to whine about indeed, Mig! 😉 Have a good one! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. It was the menu that caused them to glower
    At the cost of the meal they’d devour.
    While the grapes on the vine
    Were doing just fine
    It’s the price of the wine that’s gone sour!

    • Good Morning, Helen! 👏🏻👏🏻

      🍷 If you’re looking for wine like Merlot,
      Please be willing to go with the flow…
      Prices, yes may be steep,
      But inflation did creep…
      It’s the same now wherever you go! 🍷

    • YVW, Paul. It’s definitely a good one…You take care too.🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. A jumble fit for our inflationary times,with our prices rising here and there.As far as today’s anagrams ,no problem,though rugby looked like grubby at first,w only 1 B.As far as the cartoon solution,I thought the first word was winer rather than whine,but after seeing bar as the 3 letter word,whine popped into mind on a lazy hazy foggy Saturday.

    • Lazy, hazy here too, Professor. And more rain’s on the way…Have a good one. Stay safe, Prof. 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I was actually thinking of a visit to a local winery today, on the Niagara wine route, even though there are still restrictions in place but it’s raining now and will likely continue all day.

        • The weather is so irrational. It’s so oppressively hot and humid here, and I just now received both a Heat Advisory and a Flood Alert. Good times! 🤦🏻‍♀️ A winery is so nice to visit, but I can understand your hesitation with the rain. Not conducive to strolling through the vineyards…But it’s something to look forward to, right? (That’s what I keep telling myself anyway)…Hoping you enjoy your day Helen, despite the rain. Be well and stay safe. 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Good Morning, Betty. Definitely an easy one. Enjoy your day! Salute Cin Cin! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Hi all – Got the words with a pause at “stinky.” “Wine” was a good bet to be in the answer and I thought “WINEY”, but when I saw BAR for the second word, it showed that the first was WHINE.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Too many great wine puns to note, Angela, but I particularly liked “SEDIMENTal journeys” and “RIESLINGS.”

    “It’s wise not to ALLOW the STINKY RUGBY players to get close enough to EXHALE on you until they’ve cleaned up.”

    • Thanks, Steve. And the song was so stuck in my head, I ended up digging the 78 out of the vault to listen to…scratchy noises and all. “Like a child in wild anticipation”…a great line…But those pour rugby 🏉 players, huh? We stomped all over them! 😂Have a good one, Steve. Enjoy! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️ https://tinyurl.com/vvrnjzvk
