  1. Happy Monday everyone! Our first puzzle of the week didn’t offer any new clue words, but three of the anagrams happened to be. RXYOP was our repeat, and I found it used one other time back on 04/08/20. DCATHE was the only one I didn’t initially see so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest anagram. My issue was that I latched onto the -ED suffix and wouldn’t let go. It actually ended up being a good thing because the leftover letters gave me CHAT, which allowed me to stumble upon TACH and eventually solve it.

    Today’s cartoon was a feel good piece that showed a husband and wife duo making their final credit card payment. Since he mentioned the savings would feel like an extra paycheck each month, I found that the average US worker earns $984 per week, so a grand a month in savings is definitely worth a high-five! At first I thought they were in their kitchen as he was holding a cup in his hand, but then I noticed her comfy seat and a wedding photo on the wall and figured they were in their home office. Interesting thing about the photo was that we only saw half of it. The groom was cut out due to the angle of the room and the way the cartoon was drawn. I noticed her hair was feathered so I’d say they married in the late 70’s or early 80’s when that hairstyle was toooh-tally tubular! Some of the other fun details were a pineapple logo on the computer, a trifold bill on the table and a checkbook or cell phone next to the laptop.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of seven letters. The answer was obvious after reading the sentence, so this was a blind solve for me. I did note that the layout was nice and cryptic if you ran into problems. The way David spelled POD with the O was a great distraction from the F’s and OFF. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day.

  2. I found this one solvable to the max.
    No problems today…..
    I enjoyed the Dodgers second win in 2 days. The Olympics are interesting and NBC is doing well broadcasting it and selling sponsorships! Hate the split screen with smaller view of the action on the left and larger advertising on the right. The ads control the volume.
    Money makes the world go round.

    • Good morning, Mig. Surfing has been my surprise favorite, and I’ve also enjoyed archery and some diving. I did see a medal presentation as well and couldn’t get over how massive they looked. Google says the gold medal weighs ~1.23 pounds, silver 1.21 and bronze .99 pounds. The gold medals only have six grams of gold plating on them, and the rest is pure silver. The silver medal is made of pure silver while the bronze medal is made of red brass, which is 95% copper and 5% zinc.

        • My pleasure, Mig. I like stats and figures if you hadn’t already guessed.

          With the Red Sox doing so well, I haven’t watched much of the Olympics. I did catch some of your Dodgers on Saturday night, but fell asleep before the end. My loss!

  3. Super easy Monday which is nice. I will simply Detach from the conversation now and won’t Fiddle around or Fling glittering adjectives about but will give my Proxy to those that do. Paid Off or paid in full are awfully nice words to hear. Heating up again on the Great Plains and so it goes.

  4. Good morning. Nice start for the week. Easy on both ends. No blind solve though. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  5. The paid off pair were delighted
    And chorused in a voice so excited
    “All credit is due
    To me and to you
    No longer with debt are we blighted!”

    • 🙌🏻 The elation to be free of debt,
      Obligations now all being met…
      No more financial strain,
      Free of the monthly bane…
      Definitely a welcome asset! 🙌🏻

      • …I just realized that I didn’t post a greeting. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well! 🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Thanks Angela. I was wondering if you’d slept in! All well here on the western end of beautiful Lake Ontario. Another very hot day,

          • Same here, Helen. Hot, humid…oppressive. And we still haven’t hit upon the dog days of August…🔥🙋🏻‍♀️

    • It should have been a breeze with the D out in front. All I could see at first was HATCHED and CHEATED. Great scramble and word choice!

  6. Detach had me stumped as well,but after the pretty much blind solve of the cartoon’s puzzle,I could ‘detach’ my mind from my original,idea that it was ‘hatched’,and complete the Monday Jumble successfully.Specil thanks to Angela on her words of advice concerning my Sunday comments.

  8. An easy and quick solve this Monday morning while having breakfast on my deck under a beautiful sunny day.
    Having work fairly hard at my age around my property this summer and still have a lot to do has PAID OFF as I feel fit as a FIDDLE and, because of the Jumbles, so are my brains despite what my darling wife says at times!😂😂😂
    Glad I didn’t have to shovel the snow and hail that fell north of here yesterday although we did suffer a brief heavy hail storm around supper time.
    Stay safe

  9. Hi all – I used the double letter trick to get FIDDLE, then had to back into DETACH from all the other letters. I was stuck on TH and couldn’t see CH.
    Answer was obvious.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The network admin had to FIDDLE with the settings to DETACH the bogus PROXY server and FLING it into the ether.”

  10. Another T-storm In Va. This afternoon. Have had a lot of them lqtely plus it has been hot and humid.

    • I know what you mean, Mark. We’ve had rain here in NH almost every day since the end of June. My lawn has never looked so green and lush this late in July! I hope the rain hasn’t ruined your plans for today…….

  11. An interesting note on the Olympic Skateboarding: The Very Hot Sun softened the rubber joints on the boards’ wheel axles, making them harder to control.
    Thank you Helen and Angela – I love your daily
    Limericks. Ann
