  1. Good Morning, Everyone .. 🤰🏻 A LABOR OF LOVE…

    🎶 I got flowers in the spring, I got you to wear my ring…And when I’m sad, you’re a clown and if I get scared, you’re always around…🎶 “ I Got You, Babe” – Sonny and Cher 1965

    🤰🏻A Mother’s work is never done, as the old adage goes,
    She puts her time in way before a little darling shows…
    Those nine long months she BUSILY preps, it’s no walk in the park,
    And men will never know the drill…it’s hardly one big lark…
    But actual delivery? HELLO??…Despite the thrill,
    We women grin and “bear it”, but it sure takes lots of will…
    We all deserve the ALIAS of Super Woman true,
    Since Moms having their babies? Well it’s us that need come through
    So while it seems we PRANCE through life, bearing that Mother’s Saber…
    Just keep in mind for Moms? It all begins with PHYSICAL LABOR!🤰🏻

    So…I take a look at our cartoon this morning, and it’s like déjà vu…all over again, as our National treasure Yogi Berra would say. So very familiar…A Delivery Room, a woman gripping the mattress, her husband offering words of encouragement that’re making her see BRED…I mean red, the glass of ice chips, and the member of the medical staff saying, “Push”…So I went straight to the vault…and yes, Folks…it was worth the WORK! Because I’m happy to say that I can DELIVER! But we’ll get to that later…

    Ok, our words…All which have already GROWN to be members of the Jumble FAMILY… And we’re looking at TWINS today…Two new anagrams with our six letter words, and two old, with our fives. And while the Early Birds didn’t LABOR over any of them, there was a slight tic at BUSILY. And I hate to even mention this, but I did hear one of them use the word syllabus. Syllabus! …but I’m pretty sure he was just KIDding…Anyway, the solve? No PRESSURE…it just came NATURALLY…So, without further aDUE, it’s TIME TO PUSH onward to our cartoon…

    As I mentioned above while laying the groundWORK for today’s puzzle, today we find ourselves in a delivery room, as we see a woman about to give birth. And as our dialogue tells us, she’s exhausted from the PHYSICAL demands of being in LABOR. ‘Cause as I stated in my rhyme, and as all Mothers know…Having a baby involves a lot of…PHYSICAL LABOR!…And here we have another jewel in that Jumble CROWN!

    So, There you have it, Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone. Be well, stay safe, and I’ll leave you with a little Childbirth humor… A woman, in the throes of labor, suddenly starts shouting out…”Shouldn’t! Wouldn’t! Couldn’t! Didn’t! Can’t!”…Her husband, totally befuddled, looks over at the Doctor, who says…”Oh, don’t worry,…those are just CONTRACTIONS.” …And with that, I’ll wish you aDUE…Oh wait..That déjà vu feeling that was gnawing away at me earlier this morning? Take a look at my post just below this…It’s a separate DELIVERY…🤱🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

    The puzzle of 11/27/19. The question: “Having a baby can be a lot of work, because it’s…” The solve: LABOR INTENSIVE. And our cartoon that day? https://tinyurl.com/42z655mu The soon-to-be happy couple, Jeff and Kathy Knurek. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. So a friend just asked me if I think it’s a coincidence that we have a LABOR puzzle today, so close to Labor Day on Monday…WORKS for me!…🤷🏻‍♀️

  4. 👎🏻 Giving him the ALIAS “No Show Jones”, since he was so averse to PHYSICAL LABOR, he one time too many was caught doing that PRANCE of his while he went around saying HELLO to all the women BUSILY passing by…and he was finally let go…👎🏻

    🐎 They BUSILY groomed the horses…got them ready for their PRANCE,
    The one they had dubbed “ALIAS” so loved the daily dance…
    The horses so in sync they were, they nodded as a group,
    As if saying HELLO to Folks, as they went ‘round the loop…
    It prompted a teenager to say to his closest neighbor…
    “I’d love a job like this one here…it’s hardly PHYSICALLY LABOR”! 🐎

  5. Got the anagrams fine but couldn’t solve the puzzle. Still a pretty good J today! I also ordered the latest Jumble book on Mike’s suggestion. Good times…..
    Watching Dodgers/Giants for first game of a 3 game series, currently 1-0 Giants in top of the 7th.

    • Hey Mig. Definitely a good puzzle. And you’ll enjoy the book…I’ve been getting them for years, and they’re all so good. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Yes, it is a Labor day puzzle….yet to be a stickler, it’s not labor day. Reasoning goes it should have printed on Monday, I guess. Regardless, still a clever little puzzle, and I had to labor over what the first puzzle word was going to be, to precede LABOR. Anagrams solved speedily and then had to think a minute or two after I took LABOR out, to arrange PHYSICAL. I’ll give myself a partial Blind Solve today…hoping you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. It’s not even thinking about cooling off in central Texas yet.

    • Hey Terry. Of course it’s not a “Labor Day” puzzle. If you note, on Labor Day the Guys always give us a puzzle in keeping with the Holiday. I was just saying that there might have been a little Jumble whimsy going on with it being “so close to Monday”. Or maybe not! 😉 But you’re correct in saying that it’s a clever one. And I’m wondering if the women today may fare better gleaning PHYSICAL out of the mix. Just a thought…As for the weather? It seems like anything’s possible lately. We here in NYC got creamed by Ida…who knew things could be this bad up here, at this point in Hurricane Season. Mother Nature’s definitely playing by a new set of rules! Wishing you a wonderful weekend too, Terry…Be well and stay safe…🤰🏻

    • Kudos, Don! Always a great feeling when you beat the tough ones, right? Have a good one! 🤰🏻

  7. Good morning. Got words but caved on cartoon answer. Another hit Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  8. It’s a very exhausting day (or two…)
    Well, that’s what all mothers say
    But after all that exertion
    They make THIS assertion
    “It really was all just child’s play!”

    PS I was one of the lucky ones – got two for the price of one – so it was a one-time effort

    • Hi Helen. “Child’s play”…LOL! I like that! And you have twins? That’s wonderful! Have a good one, Helen. Be well and stay safe! 🙋🏻‍♀️

      🤰🏻 While birthing a baby is rough,
      And women are known to be tough…
      A man has no clue,
      As to what we go through…
      And there’s no way to prove it enough…🤰🏻

  9. Prance gave me reason to pause,then the abundance of letters got me on solving the cartoon puzzle.But I was in good company w the number of respondents stumped by the cartoon solution.

    • It looks that way, Professor. It’s turning out to be a stumper…Here’s to tomorrow! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Had to labor over the cartoon answer this morning but finally got it. My daughter’s birthday is September 8th. I remember thinking it would be a hoot if I went into labor on Labor Day but no she was born the following Friday. My husband always used to say that if the men of the world had to have babies, there would not be a population problem. Wishing all of you a good 😊 weekend.

    • Betty, you made me laugh! I remember my Grandmother saying the exact same thing…ever since I was a child. Sweet memory..Wishing you a good one too…🤰🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. I see that for the second time (at least), ALIAS has appeared in a Jumble. They cannot use ALIAS in a Jumble! The word is cooked; it has two anagrams, namely ALIAS and ASAIL. If ASAIL were used, the answer would be PHYSICAL BROIL. They had a hot time.

    • Hi Jim. Asail is not a word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, which as a Jumble player, I’m sure you know is the only dictionary David uses in selecting his words. Asail is also not acceptable in a game of Scrabble, and even as I try to type it, my auto-correct feature is flagging it as being incorrect. As for ALIAS though, it has been in Jumble play going back many years. Have a good night, Jim. OEJYN! 🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Assail is spelled w 2 S’s I thought alias today was a-sail w 1S, but after looking up the correct spelling of assail,I stumbled upon alias as the right solution.

        • There is a separate word ASAIL, which means set forth on a sail, as a sailboat. I saw three ships asailing. I did not mean ASSAIL, which means to attack. And note a third anagram below. ALIAS should never appear in a Jumble. And neither should KEEPER or VISTA. And of course neither should ASAIL, ALAIS, PEEKER, or VITAS.

      • In browsing the Internet for ASAIL, I was surprised to find a THIRD anagram – ALAIS, the plural of Alai, as in several jai alais, or mountains in the Alai mountain range in Kyrgystan.
