  1. Happy Tuesday everyone! Fairly challenging anagrams this morning. DBEIA is the only one that I solved right off the bat. The rest of them took a few extra seconds to sort through, with RICBEK taking the longest. All of the clue words have been used at one point or another in the past. DBEIA popped up in a couple of other puzzles making it the only repeat anagram for today.

    The setting for today’s cartoon appears to be a hotel room where we see a couple unpacking a suitcase. The gentleman is surprised to see a lot of wrinkles in his shirt even though he carefully folded it. Lucky for him we see that the hotel offers an in-room ironing board and iron to take care of the issue. The most interesting part of the cartoon for me was trying to figure out what the other items in the suitcase were. His pants were the easiest to identify because of the belt loops. I believe the items in the zippered portion were t-shirts and balled up pairs of socks.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of eight-letters. It was no blind solve for me as I had to write out the letters to get the job done. CREASE came into view after a few seconds leaving the DE- prefix for the finish. A nice little challenge for our second puzzle of the week. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day.

  2. On This Day in History: AUGUST 10th

    -(1821) Missouri became the 24th state to join the Union. The land had been acquired by the U.S. as part of the Louisiana Purchase 18 years prior.

    -(1846) The Smithsonian Institution was chartered by the U.S. Congress.

    -(1921) Franklin D. Roosevelt, age 39, suffers from the first signs of Polio while staying on holiday at his summer home on the Canadian island of Campobello.

    -(1948) On ABC, “Candid Camera” made its television debut. The show initially began on radio as “The Candid Microphone” on June 28, 1947.

    -(1979) Michael Jackson released his fifth studio album, Off the Wall. The album earned Jackson his first Grammy Award.

    • I think it’s also worth mentioning that today, in 1993, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was sworn in as the second female Justice on the Supreme Court. She served our country well. 🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I mentioned her being confirmed by the Senate on 8/3 and thought it too recent to mention again. Nice find though. Gotta save some for next year! 🙂

        • No, not too recent. As for next year? I’m sure there’ll be plenty to speak of…especially in light of today’s news. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Decrease is cooler than decease, I say!
    All good today, fun, but I did have to spend a moment thinking to find DECREASE….

  4. Good Morning, Everyone. 👕 AND THE STORY ENFOLDS…👕

    🎶 IRON OUT the rough spots, girl…IRON OUT out the rough spots…What you gon’ do?…About this WRINKLE in my heart?…🎶 “Iron Out The Rough Spots” – Don Covay 1966 https://tinyurl.com/mw2uhbdx

    👕 His suitcase lies upon the bed, as we see him unpack,
    (My first thought is why on the bed? Why not a luggage rack)?
    He tried to ABIDE by those hacks, clothes ENTRY by a list,
    And didn’t BICKER ‘bout the rules, the shirt fold was the gist…
    He figured long as it’s all in…he’s made it…he’s in luck,
    Until he went to LOOSEN things…and wrinkles ran amok
    But luckily an iron’s there…so he’ll rescue that piece…
    He’ll get to work on getting folds and creases to DECREASE! 👕

  5. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Until the board agreed to LOOSEN and DECREASE it’s restrictions, it didn’t pay to BICKER, since in order to gain ENTRY they had no choice but to ABIDE by the rulings…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🔐 The club had easy ENTRY, so no one thought to BICKER,
    Until one day someone went in and walked off with the wicker…
    Now there’s a call to change the rules, and people must ABIDE,
    Things can no longer LOOSEN up…it’s now all cut and dried
    New locks ordered with key cards…the surveillance will increase…
    And their policy of “open-door” will now for sure DECREASE! 🔐

  6. Will go and silently sulk in a corner…..I spent about three minutes trying to unscramble ENTRY….and gave up. Had to use Jumble Solver to figure out that anagram. And couldn’t back it in because with the letters at hand, didn’t get the puzzle answer. Onward to a better week ahead.

    • We’ve all been there, Terry. A good hint for scrambles with a “Y” is to put it at the end of your solve since most of the time that’s where it ends up. Take care.

  7. I love any puzzle that makes me think of “The Big Lebrowski” and when I saw Abide, as in the Dude will abide, that happened. Of course, that made think of the theme, “Tumbling Tumbleweeds.” Have a great day!

    • Hey OO: how are you doing? I saw some awful stuff about flooding in or near Omaha, just hope you are OK

      • Yes a ton of rain in just 2 hours. Street flooding was nuts but no deaths or anything. Some people were caught in water up to their chests in two parking garage elevators (you may have seen a video) but they were quickly rescued.
        Thanks for checking on us, Mig!

  8. Good morning. None of the words were a first glance but fairly easy just the same. I solved them from bottom up with Entry being the last. I had to use the letters to get the cartoon answer. All in all, a god day. You amaze me Angela with all the songs you come up with. Another one I’ve never heard before. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  9. Entry also gave me reason to pause,but getting that solved,the other anagrams were a quick solve.I saw crease or creased as the cartoon answer,before decrease appeared as the final solve.

  10. It will be later today when I can come up with a limerick so please start us off today if you wish Angela.

  11. Like Chuck, I paused at entry and first thought of crease or creased before I figured out decrease but all in all in was a successful morning. Happy Tuesday all.

    • The fact that the final solve was only eight-letters really tricked me! I thought it was going to be much easier to solve than it was. Fun indeed. Have a good one, Betty! 🙂

  12. I didn’t feel like doing the jumble this morning specially with this strange RICBEK but then ENTRY quickly appeared so I said… what the heck!
    BICKER gave me a fit and once solved, my impatience DECREASEd.
    There are mornings you don’t want to “iron out” problems!
    Enjoy your day and keep singing!

  13. Here goes today’s limerick:

    You must strike while the iron is hot
    Give those folds all the mettle you’ve got
    With steam and a hiss
    No wrinkle is missed
    Every last little crinkle is caught!

    • Good Morning, Helen. Sorry…I was on the phone, trying to iron out a problem with a vendor, and I’m just now seeing both of your emails. I think this follows closest to yours, and the other I did to match the puzzle…🙋🏻‍♀️

      🤷🏻‍♀️ Seems no matter how hard people try,
      In a suitcase our clothes by and by…
      Get themselves in a twist
      But an iron’s warm mist…
      Is a travelers greatest ally! 🤷🏻‍♀️

      👕He was hoping his shirt would look fine,
      And he’d take it and go wine and dine…
      But the creases did show
      Where he folded…and so…
      To be ironing now he’s resigned! 👕

    • Thanks for the Head’s Up, Angela. I put calendars in everyone’s Christmas Stocking so I just got them for a bargain – not everyone does Jumble but got them all for a better price than usual. Goody! 👍

      • Hi Betty. You’re very welcome. That was my thought exactly. Grabbing them at just $12 apiece is unheard of. I ordered a few more myself. Be well, Betty, and enjoy your night…📆🙋🏻‍♀️
