  1. Good Morning, Everyone. 🕰 POINTING HER IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION 🕰

    🎶 My GRANDFATHER’S CLOCK was too large for the shelf…So it stood ninety years on the floor…And it kept in it’s place, not a frown upon it’s face…And it’s HANDS never hung by its side…But it stopped short…never to go again…When the old man died…🎶 “ My Grandfather’s Clock” – Johnny Cash 1959 https://tinyurl.com/5e4c7s6h

    🕰 A beautiful Grandfather clock takes center stage today,
    Some real old ones had scroll work…very ornate on display…
    Perhaps you’d see PAPAYA, somewhere deeply in the etch,
    (And yes, to get the word in…I agree…it’s quite a stretch)!
    The little girl is learning that when both hands “point” up straight,
    The time will chime for 12 o’clock, on this clock so ornate…
    How BITTER-sweet the image here, perhaps it’s DIMLY lit
    And since she’s with her Grandpa, how much sweeter does it sit?
    (But here again with OZONE…there’s no way it fits this rhyme)…
    The bottom line…we “see” the chimes…at the APPOINTED TIME! 🕰

  2. 🥝 THE PAPAYA stand opened most days at the APPOINTED TIME, but this past week, with the proprietor’s DIMLY-hidden breathing issues, he was BITTER, and opened later than usual, constantly complaining about the OZONE…🥝

    🤷🏻‍♀️ In Science class they studied ‘bout the OZONE Layer’s effects,
    The teacher used PAPAYA…but the class couldn’t detect…
    The DIMLY thought-out reference…and a BITTER tone was spoken,
    She heard things like “You could have used a different kind of token”…
    I guess attempts not thought out well…the reason and the rhyme?
    Just didn’t work, but hopefully will…the next APPOINTED TIME…🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Anagrams were not too difficult.
    My day was spent in Beverly Hills hosting out of town guests. We ate, drank and were merry!
    The puzzle solution was hard for me but I finally got it. David seems to be taken with long words this last week!

  4. Blind solve, but took a minute. Time was obvious, then noticing the double p’s gave the rest.
    Johnny Cash!

  5. To me APPOINTED TIME doesn’t seem like a good answer, as there is nothing about point in the cartoon. So to me APPOINTED ITEM is just as good a solution, and also just as bad. This type of Jumble invites shadow solutions, such as APPOINTED ITEM. And there are others. Perhaps the father (or child) was an IMPATIENT DOPE. Or maybe this clock is in the Vatican, and the auspicious time of 12 o’clock INTIMATED POPE.

    • Jim…Au contraire. There’s definitely a reference to “point” Two in fact… The Grandfather is “pointing” out that “both hands on the clock are “pointing” straight up”, designating 12 o’clock…it’s the whole idea of the cartoon. Time…apPOINTed Time! It’s a brilliant solution! 🕰🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. I might be off in the Ozone, but I Dimly remember eating a Papaya and it seemed Bitter. I finished the Jumble today long before the Appointed Time and now to work.

  7. Good morning. Another easy one today. The only word that wasn’t an automatic read was Papaya which took at the most fifteen seconds to get. The cartoon answer again should have been an instant read but I gave in to looking at the letters. I thought the last word was hour until I saw the letters. The hint was the father pointing to the clock. Enjoyed your song choice Angela. Yet another one I never heard before. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Tk you. Always glad to hear you enjoy the music. And 👏🏻👏🏻…You got the whole POINT ⬆️⬆️ of the puzzle/cartoon! Wishing you stay well and safe too, Paul. Have a good one…🕰🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. When it’s time to tell the time
    Here’s a handy little rhyme
    Be it midnight or noon.
    It’s never too soon
    To know which is meant by the number twelve chime!

    • Hi Helen…I think this first one follows suit closest to your lead…But I wrote the second one looking to keep closest to the puzzles theme…

      🕰 When the chimes of the clock used to peel,
      People knew just what time was revealed…
      But today kids just know,
      What the digits will show…
      We’ve lost much of that old time genteel…🕰

      🤷🏻‍♀️Just like Hickory-Dickory Dock,
      Today we deal with this old clock…
      And a young girl is taught,
      About 12…double naught…
      But the “hand” thing might come as a shock! 🤷🏻‍♀️

      • On a digital clock it it is true
        They just read the numbers straight through
        So it’s just 1, 2 and 3
        As easy as can be
        But the real meaning? – they haven’t a clue!

        That’s it for limericks today!

        • Hi again, Helen…I think this one follows yours well…
          Until tomorrow! …Enjoy your day! 🕰🙋🏻‍♀️

          🤷🏻‍♀️Back when “reading” a clock was the norm,
          We’d do so by the way the hands formed…
          But today kids just know,
          What the digits will show…
          It’s entirely a new platform! 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Good afternoon. Thanks Helen and Angela for the smiles you put on my face every day. Enjoy the rhymes. Also that show Betty was talking about with the grandfather clock I’ve seen it twice this year so far. He is such a good actor. You can’t help but love the guy. Take care.

      • Tks, Paul. Limericks are always fun…The Twilight Zone…Where are you seeing the episodes?🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Hi, it’s on cable TV. Optimum channel 33 On either The twilight zone or Alfred Hitchcock that’s 12:30 am to 2:00am. I think it was about a month or two ago and before that maybe less than a year ago. Take care

  9. A nice Wednesday mid week puzzle,neither too hard,nor too easy.Dimly looked like mildly to me at first,but lacking the second L.After sorting that out,the rest of the anagrams were a snap,even papaya.As far as the cartoon solution,time was an obvious solution for the 4 letter word,but the multitude of letters,caused a pause before appointed popped into my head.Have a good midweek ‘hump’ day.

  10. Like others, knew the last word was time….but had to speedily pursue the anagrams to find the appointed word. Twas just a little cryptic for me today. Good song choice, but never heard it sung (I don’t think). Happy Hump Day

  11. Cute puzzle this morning. No problem with the anagrams and I agree that the Grandfather pointing to the clock’s hands was a logical clue to the cartoon answer. I have a Grandfather clock which I dearly love. There was a great Twilight Zone episode with Ed Wynn called “Ninety Years Without Slumbering”. How was a retired watchmaker who fears that when his grandfather’s clock stops ticking his own life will end. Here’s hoping you all have a good time today.

    • Hi Betty. It’s so funny you say that, because the episode’s title comes from the song…I tried finding it, but there’s nothing out there to view, without buying the episode. Not even a clip. But how I envy you your clock. One of my Uncles had one, and when he passed away, almost every one of us nieces and nephews wanted it. So we did the only fair thing…the old names in a hat…but sadly, I lost out! 🤷🏻‍♀️…And yes, taking the cartoon by FACE value? HANDS down a dead giveaway! Here’s hoping you have a good “time” today too, Betty! Enjoy! 🕰🙋🏻‍♀️


    • Other than having Mildly first for an anagram, all went well.
      I vaguely remember that episode from long ago, Betty, but can’t recall how it ended. I’ll try finding it.
      Not long ago I mentioned that Rod Serling’s movie Patterns is on youtube.

  12. OZONE took the longest of the jumbles, but wasn’t that hard. For the answer, I first saw tone, but then saw TIME, which quickly led to APPOINTED. It wasn’t one of the cleverist answers, but fit the cartoon.

    Hot here lately in Southern California.
