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

    🎶 I thought sooner or later the lights up above will COME DOWN in circles and guide me to love…Sooner or later it all COMES APART…the WALLS ARE ALL SHATTERED, I’m back at the start… FALL on me with open arms…FALL on me from where you are…🎶 “Fall on Me” – Andrea and Matteo Bocelli 2018 https://tinyurl.com/f5ca2tsy

    🇩🇪I’ll start right off by saying that GAZEBO draws a pass,
    I had to STAND upon my head…was lost in a morass…
    It’s not that I’m INEPT with words…but here I just resist,
    I couldn’t get it to fit in…and no need to INSIST…
    We’re here commemorating what was Germany’s sensation…
    When East met West…and “one” became the chosen DESIGNATION!🇩🇪

    The Berlin Wall…I’ll never forget that night in November of 1989, as I sat transfixed, glued to the TV, watching ecstatic Berliners chiseling away at the infamous wall. https://tinyurl.com/m9ctm87m And here, almost 32 years later, I still get chills just thinking about it. And I remember crying…It was definitely a defining moment in our lives…

    Today’s words are all etched in Jumble stone, and we have two repeat anagrams. But one in particularly is especially interesting. I came across today’s anagram PENIT, at least 10 times by the time I got to 2009, and to be honest, I was climbing the wall by then, so I stopped counting. In April of 2019, it appeared as is twice, five days apart, on the 24th and the 29th. So I think it’s safe to say that it’s definitely rock solid as far as our anagrams go. And the word itself has fallen into our laps many more times over the years to boot…Our other repeat, NASDT, was last seen back in February of 2018. And as far as how hard today’s words were to decipher? Suffice to say the Early Birds brought them all down in record time. As for the solution? At first it looked like it might be a split decision…but the Birds chopped away at it, and soon were all flying in the same direction…and to a man, all came up with the right answer. And it’s a very clever one indeed! Ok…time to chip away at our cartoon…

    In 1949, Germany formally split into two independent NATIONS: the Federal Republic of Germany (FDR or West Germany), allied to the Western democracies, and the German Democratic Republic (GDR or East Germany), allied to the Soviet Union. And it remained that way until August 31st, 1990, where we find ourselves today, https://tinyurl.com/spju96x2 witnessing Wolfgang Schäuble, West German Federal Minister of the Interior, and East German State Secretary Günther Krause, signing the Unification Treaty, shaking hands, and finally reuniting. And accordingly, on October 3rd, 1990 https://tinyurl.com/67nmbtdd, almost one year after the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was made official. And that was DESIGNATED Unification Day… Germany no longer needed the “East” and “West” DESIGNATIONS…

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and here’s to Unity…🇩🇪🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Good morning again. I just read your post Angela and want to thank you for all the information but especially for that beautiful and wonderful song choice. You gave us a gem. Take care.

      • Thank you, Paul. A gem for sure…it’s such a beautiful song that doesn’t fail to bring tears to my eyes…As for the information, I too found it interesting…especially that NBC article. You take care too, Paul. Stay safe…🇩🇪🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤷🏻‍♂️ While trying to find the best DESIGNATION for the new GAZEBO, the INEPT designer failed to take more of a STAND…and didn’t INSIST that the proper channels be followed..🤷🏻‍♂️

    🙇🏻‍♂️ He built a STAND to sell his wares…GAZEBO of a sort,
    But somehow it just wasn’t what he meant it to purport…
    The neighborhood board bristled, in fact they did INSIST,
    That INEPT was the whole idea…a def swing and a miss…
    They needed more to come to terms…before he’d set up station…
    ‘Cause now it’s not looking too good…for this here DESIGNATION…🙇🏻‍♂️

  3. On This Day in History: AUGUST 6th

    -(1787) At the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, debate began on the first draft of the U.S. Constitution.

    -(1945) The first Atomic Bomb was dropped over Hiroshima at 8:15 a.m., by the American B-29 bomber Enola Gay.

    -(1952) Satchel Paige, age 46, became the oldest pitcher to complete a major league baseball game.

    -(1986) Timothy Dalton became the fourth actor to be named “James Bond.”

    -(2012) NASA’s Curiosity rover landed on Mars. It was launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, FL, on November 26, 2011.

  4. There probably wasn’t enough of my brain power to figure out the NATIONS in today’s Jumble Puzzle….Suffice it to say, I quickly unscrambled the anagrams, unscrambled DESIGNATIONS….and am moving onward into Friday.

  5. Good morning. I was really Inept this morning. I was unable to get that word and gave up on the cartoon answer as well. I guess it evens out as so many this week was real easy. Let’s hope I have better results tomorrow. Until then stay safe and take care.

    • Good Morning, Paul. I’m sure you’ll rebound tomorrow…Saturday’s are always fun…Here’s to a good one, Paul…Hoping you stay well and safe too…🇩🇪🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. I was INEPT in figuring out the solution to the puzzle and some of the anagrams. I INSIST that a GAZEBO could STAND against the division of Berlin.
    Kinda fun today!

    • Fun and an interesting subject…Have a good one, Mig. Stay safe out there. 🇩🇪🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Gazebo had me stumped until I backed in. With no ideas for the answer, I looked for a possible ending and found tion. That led me to nation and the rest. Got a kick out of all your wall jokes, Angela, and Mike’s “wurst” in the voting box. Wishing all a fun weekend.

  8. Usually Jumbles have a double meaning. This one has a double answer. The answer is given to have 12 letters in one word, but if you are willing to consider solutions with more than one word, there is also the solution ASSIGNED INTO, which gives rise to this rewritten description with two answers in one: Germany was reunified in 1990 and no longer needed to be ASSIGNED INTO “east” and “west” DESIGNATIONS. I also like your colorings (Germany’s colors?), suggesting the shadow solution SIDE GNAT IONS, as though you could combine gnats on the side with something like sodium ions to form sodium gnatide. Geez, we need to do something about those pesky gnats on summer evenings.

  9. Anagrams were a quick solve even on a Friday.With the multitude of letters in the 1 word cartoon solution,one had to pause,but w the multiple nations signaled out,”designations” also popped into mind.Another note on the reunification,is “Recalling Pres Reagen telling the Soviet Czar to “Tear down that wall.”

  10. When German immigrants arrived in the United States, they introduced America to lager beers, a traditional German style…And today, a little irony for us all…It’s INTERNATIONAL BEER DAY! Ein Prost! GenieBen! 🍻🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. I’ve painted a somewhat rosier picture in this limerick than is actually likely the case today. I don’t know that life is always a fest in Germany today but the annual Oktoberfest is certainly an event!

    It’s Auf Wiedersehen to the east and the west
    Guten Tag to the combo that’s best.
    Be it Bonn or Berlin
    In the city you’re in
    You’ll be assured of ein sehr gut Fest!

    • Hi Helen…Let’s here it for Oktoberfest! 🍻 I didn’t go that way, but I just did one trying to keep with your train of thought…🙋🏻‍♀️

      🍻So the Germans they’ve given us beer,
      To America…they’ve brought it here…
      And we took to it fine,
      Quite a change from our wine!
      And we added a Prost to our cheers! 🍻

      …And this is the one I wrote trying to follow today’s theme…

      🇩🇪 Sad for Germans when East split from West,
      And for years they all lived with unrest…
      But then time finally came,
      They were one and the same…
      And the differences all put to rest…🇩🇪

    • Not to worry, Eleanor…There’s always tomorrow…And I’m pretty sure you’ll have an easy go of it…Have a good day! 🇩🇪🙋🏻‍♀️

  12. No problem with the anagrams and once I saw “nations” the cartoon answer followed quickly. My senior year in high school, one of my classmates went to then West Germany as a foreign exchange student. She put on 40 pounds in 3 months eating apple strudel and drinking that German beer. 🍺🍺. Happy Friday all!

    • Apple strudel 🥐 and German beer🍻…How could you go wrong? 😂 Happy Friday to you too, Betty. Enjoy! 🇩🇪🙋🏻‍♀️

  13. Had been Pretty easy of late, but today was a bit of a workout for me! Finally got Gazebo on the 5th try, and the exact same amount to get Designations. Had to walk away and shake those letters to the solution around in my head a bit, before they unscrambled! 🥚🍳!! Have a Great weekend!!! 😄

    • LOL! Like the egg reference, Kim! 😂 Kudos for sticking it out! Have a good one…Enjoy! 🇩🇪🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks Angela! Yes! I Always feel like a bit of an Egghead if it doesn’t come to me right away! 🤣🤣 Take care!

        • Girl, please! Lately I’ve become so scatterbrained that I’m lucky I know where I live. I’ve resorted to sewing little labels inside all my clothes…you know, just in case I get lost…😂😂! 🤷🏻‍♀️

          • LOL! You are Too funny!, 🤩🤩! Here’s a sad truth! ….I’ve Lost my own socks 🧦, doing my own laundry, in my own house! 🤪 They do eventually show up! But how does that even happen?!?! 🤦🏻‍♀️

            • You’re definitely not alone with the lost socks. It’s always been a mystery. There’s a gazillion theories out there online as to where they supposedly end up. Personally, I’ve given up caring…If I come up short, I just wear mismatched ones…and the kids all think I’m “trendy”! 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

              • Okay! Got it! I’ll take your lead on that! No more worries about the Phantom socks!👻…😉😉

              • As a university student my son was noted for losing socks. But it never bothered him. If he could find only one sock, he wore just one sock with the other foot sockless in his shoe. Atthough sometimes a bit cold in winter, he just managed.

  14. Very Cute you girls! Don’t know what Helen’s son name is, but it makes me think of Shoeless Joe from the ball team on “Field of Dreams”! I can only imagine her son’s one bare foot in the dead of winter in Canada! 🥶

    • Kim…Shoeless Joe Jackson was a real person, and a legit major league ball player. He got his nickname from the one time he went up to bat shoeless because he had blisters on his feet. ⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks for telling me, Anj! Did not know the reality of it all! Knew he was a “legitimate” player. But did not know the entire story behind it! So thanks very much for that!

  15. That was a tough one I even spelled designations wrong. Oh well can’t have everything except the Dodgers never going to catch the Giants.

    • Hi Matthew…Not to worry. There’s always tomorrow…and I’m pretty sure you’ll find it a lot easier…It’s a good one. Thanks for commenting…and I’ll pass on the baseball analogy…don’t want to ruffle any feathers! 😂 Enjoy your night, Matthew. Take care! ⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️
