  1. Happy Monday everyone! All of today’s clue words were bride and true favorites. Both of the 5-letter anagrams were repeats while SLUAWR and PLAGOL returned as being new. CEEEM is the only one that I didn’t initially see. The letters did look familiar, but all I kept finding was MEECE! Since it’s the one that nearly caused me to veil, aisle go ahead and make it my pick for today’s hardest anagram.

    Today’s cartoon introduces us to a young man getting ready for his wedding. The location of the ceremony isn’t known, but since they’re inside, I’d hazard a dress that it’s taking place in a church. Since the sentence described him as the husband-to-be, I immediately knew GROOM would be part of the answer. The best man mentioning how dapper his buddy looks was another rice clue. Some of the smaller details were the hangers on the dresser, a rosebud boutonniere on the groom’s lapel and the tail of his tuxedo jacket. My favorite was was the reflection of the bridegroom in the mirror. Everything was perfect — right down to the teeth on the comb! Jumble Jeff knows how to vow the crowd!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11-letters. With GROOM eliminated, the rest of the solve was a piece of cake! We have had this particular solution before. Back on August 20, 2016 the sentence read: The bride was beautiful and her husband-to-be was – – –. My notes indicate the answer was obvious on that day as well. Fun Jumble to start the week. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day.

  2. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…

    🎶 Goin’ to the chapel and we’re gonna get MARRIED…Today’s the day we’ll say “I do”…And we’ll never be lonely anymore…🎶 Going to the Chapel” – The Dixie Cups 1964

    🤵🏻‍♂️ He’s looking very dapper, and a WALRUS was my thought,
    But then I caught my error…penguin was the word I sought…
    Our groom, of course is ready, all decked out in formal wear,
    He could sub as an EMCEE, looking so good standing there…
    So elegant, he in his tails, he sports a boutonniere,
    And smiles at his image whilst he stops to comb his hair…
    I’m sure he did a GALLOP, and was dressed in record time,
    And now awaits his DOLLY…soon those wedding bells will chime…
    She’ll definitely be a vision… a peacock with all it’s plume…
    But for now he’s man-in-waiting…and of course he’s def WELL-GROOMED!🤵🏻‍♂️

  3. 🐎 Looking out at the WELL GROOMED group of riders, he knew they were just itching to GALLOP out there, but as the EMCEE, he worried about the horse named DOLLY, who had all the finesse of a WALRUS…🐎

    🤷🏻‍♂️ His duties as an EMCEE had his nerves in quite a knot,
    The Order of the WALRUS lodge had voted him the spot
    The hour’s at a GALLOP, and the time is drawing near,
    He hopes his DOLLY’s seated, she will help allay his fear
    He’s praying he don’t blow it…if he does surely he’s doomed…
    He took a deep breath, saying “Well at least I look WELL GROOMED”! 🤷🏻‍♂️

  4. I am the Walrus, coo-coo, ca-choo. Walrus tripped me up today like an Emcee trying to Gallop through a list of country singers and forgetting Dolly (Parton). Chamber of Commerce weather today on the Great Plains. Get your summer while it’s hot.

    • Happy Monday, OO! I read that Dolly and her husband, Carl Dean, celebrated their golden anniversary back in 2016 by renewing their vows. They were married on May 30, 1966. Have a great start to your week!

  5. Good morning. Thank goodness for our normal Monday jumble. Today was no disappointment. To me the words were all repeats and were immediately recognizable. As to the cartoon, I was unable to come up with a blind solve but once the letters were down the answer came quick. You had me tapping the spot where the song should be Angela. I was getting all set to let you know and then surprise, you redeemed yourself. You nailed it. Mine was memorable. With a Bishop on my side officiating and a monsignor on my wife’s side assisting followed by our churches priest. We were blessed. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Sorry about that…😉. And thanks…I knew you’d like it. But who did you know to rate all that man-power at your wedding? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of such presence. Was it a high Mass? Very interesting…And here’s to you staying well and safe yourself, Paul. 🤵🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. If it’s looks that maketh the man
    Squeaky clean and all spic and span,
    With nuptials approaching
    He needs little coaching,
    The new spouse will be number one fan!

    • Hi Helen…

      🤵🏻‍♂️Looking handsome as handsome can be,
      Is our groom, who is dressed to a T…
      With a smile so wide,
      He’s the picture of pride…
      As he waits for his sweet bride-to-be! 🤵🏻‍♂️

        • LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻! Yes…He awaits his bride and joy! Have a good one, Helen! 🤵🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

        • …And I like spic and span. Another tried and true idiom that’s seeming to fall by the wayside. Spic and Span…the guy really cleans up well, doesn’t he? 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

          • Actually I think it should be spick, not spic. I thought it had a French origin but not so, it’s Dutch/German/Saxon – a real hybrid. Spick and span usually refers to things, not people but we’re allowed a bit of poetic licence in the limerick business. As English becomes even more of a global language, idioms tend to fall away, to be replaced by a more business-like and much less image-filled lexicon.

            • Hi Helen…I think both are pretty much acceptable …but of course, I was “punning” with it, referring more to the household cleaner…and the groom “cleaning up” nicely. That’s a phrase commonly heard…”you clean up nicely”, “he cleans up nicely”, etc. As for idioms, which I love, I think as long as David’s around…we should be ok! 🤞🏻He’s definitely a fan!

  7. Dolly looked like oddly at first.After straightening that out,solving the anagrams and,seeing well as the first cartoon word,well groomed quickly followed for an easy Monday Jumble!

  8. Another vote for oddly, probably because it’s used fairly frequently. However, once I straightened that one out everything was smooth sailing. I think it is remarkable that President & Mrs. Carter have been married for 75 years. One must marry young and live long to achieve that goal. Happy Monday to all.

  9. Hi all – Easy one today, with the double letter trick showing GALLOP (and yes, I also saw ODDLY first.) Saw WELL as the first answer word and thought CLOTHED or DRESSED, but the term “husband-to-be” gave away GROOM.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Angela, my first thought for a song was the obvious “I’m getting married in the morning.”

    Mike, I only scored 50% on the quiz, but I did get the Mariah Carey right and laughed at Kathy Knurek being one of the choices!
    $25,000 for a wedding, yikes!

    “For his trick, the WALRUS would GALLOP across the tent and lumber onto the DOLLY, whereupon the EMCEE would pull him offstage.”

    • That’s not bad, Steve. The questions involving percentages were the hardest IMO. Hope you enjoyed it!

    • Steve…$25, 000?…Try a wedding here in the NY/NJ area…you’re easily looking at $40-50K. Yikes, indeed! 😱…Kind of gives all new meaning to…”Till debt do us part”! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Still having trouble finding J on line the evening before so I just worked it from my paper. Anagrams were Monday-easy and the cartoon solution fell right into place. I enjoyed Mike’s quiz but only got 50%. We’re going to the central coast for a couple of days so our rolling bag was out and being packed on the floor. This triggered our tiny little dog to plop down in the bag so we don’t leave her…..what a mind she has!
    I’ll have internet on the trip but don’t know if I will have access to the online J. Hope to see y’all tomorrow!!!

    • That’s because Capri knows she’s the boss! Enjoy your time at the coast and safe travels, Mig. Hopefully someone will post a link for you. 🙂

      • Oh my Goodness! What a smart puppy! Saying…”You’re not leaving me behind, Papa Migster!” Love those doggies! I will always travel with my little guy, when we can! 🐶 Have a great trip!

        • THANKS Kimberly, we had a great trip and are home again. Our dog enjoyed but found it too cold on the central coast!

  11. I too noticed Kathy Knurek and wonder if that’s Jumble Jeff’s wife?

  12. Gallop gave me a few seconds more of a hitch today! Dolly I got straight away, because the last time they had Oddly on here, I mistakenly used Dolly! So…nailed it! And another second went by, for how I block letters to figure out the answer…. First hit ….for his wedding he was a “Glow Modeler”! Oh for crying out loud! How stupid is that? 🤣 Now, it was just a fraction of time, mind you, until I picked up on, Well-groomed! But it still makes me laugh, because my first initial insight was so stupid! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Makes me think of my post of several months ago, “Flip the Semester”! I posted that, and was so surprised that I had a few people say they thought of that, as well! Hey Mikey, I flunked your test with a big fail of 30%! 🤦🏻‍♀️I really thought I would do better, but I sooo … embarrassed myself with that one! That was a fun quiz though! Thanks for that! Looking forward to more of those someday! Take care, My Jumble Friends!

    • Well he was glowing! I like how Jeff showed him being calm as a cucumber too. Great detail.

      The quiz was a challenge, but my wife scored 80% so I figured I’d roll with it. Maybe it was too hard if you only scored 30%. Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

  13. Well I tried to up the ante and think of today’s terms! In some cases, I obviously miscalculated, though! Your wife getting 80% is astounding! I’m just Out of the Loop on these things! Take care!
