Jumble Answers for 09/30/2021








Happy Thursday everyone! All of today’s clue words were familiar old friends. Two of the scrambles were new, but we’ve definitely bumped into ZAREC and MEHET before. At first I thought CRAZE would return as being a new clue word, but the archives told a different story. It turns out it’s been used at least nine times in the past, with 3/2/17 being the most recent and 10/25/63 the oldest. VISUAL took a few extra blinks to come into view so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest anagram. After finishing them off, I noticed the clue words were listed in alphabetical order making it the 11th time it’s happened this year.

Today’s cartoon transports us to the “Pine Tree State” where we encounter a couple discussing plans to develop their property. In the background was a sign that read OTYOKWA CREEK, and a quick Google search showed that the creek is located in the town of Bremen, ME. The happy couple were drawn with exacting detail which leads me to believe they’re most likely friends with David or Jeff. The male half was wearing an orange shirt and black pants while his partner sported green shorts and an aquamarine tank top with a WILCO hummingbird logo on the front. The inflatable tube in her left hand seemed like an odd item to be carrying since they weren’t wearing bathing suits. The fact that the words FISHING, TUBING and CREEK were mentioned in the dialogue meant it was most likely a visual clue and the final answer would have something to do with water.

The layout for the final solve consisted of seven consonants and six vowels for a total of 13-letters. The R at the front had me thinking RIVER, but then I noticed METR in the middle and settled on STREAM. With those letters crossed out, REVENUE was easily pieced together to finish off our last puzzle for September. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day. //Mike

  2. While getting an MBA at Stanford I heard a lot about the importance of the Revenue Stream.
    Now retired the revenue stream is still valuable!
    Got the anagrams no sweat; the solution took a moment longer but I loved it!!

  3. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…🙋🏻‍♀️

    🎶Down by the old mill STREAM…Where I first met you,…With your eyes of blue, dressed in gingham too…🎶 “Down By the Old Mill Stream” – The Mills Brothers circa 1959

    ⛺️They needed to stay liquid, and to have the income flow,
    So our couple had the idea for a camp where they could show…
    Things that always stay TRENDY…think of fishing and a hike,
    The VISUAL set in their minds…imaginations spiked…
    It wasn’t just a wild CRAZE, they had themselves a THEME…
    And so Otyokwa Creek became their own REVENUE STREAM! ⛺️

  4. 💸 Enrolled in the class called REVENUE STREAM, he appreciated how the Professor made use of VISUAL aids, and kept to the THEME of avoiding the TRENDY get rich quick CRAZE that had been so prevalent during the ‘80s…💸

    🎸When Rock n’ Roll first made the scene, most parents hit the roof,
    They thought of it just TRENDY…A success? They’d need the proof…
    They felt the THEME and lyrics of the songs nothing to praise,
    And it would simply disappear…a nonsensical CRAZE
    But others had a VISUAL sense, with confidence to deem…
    That Rock n’ Roll would def give birth to a REVENUE STREAM! 🎸

  5. We had a surprise last night , our son came home from ca. For six days, so I’m a little tired , I didn’t have the VISUAL to get the jumble , so I’ll leave you with a song to continue an Angela THEME ! 🎶 stream stream stream 🎵stream stream stream , good day everyone !

  6. Good morning. With limited time today I was able to get the words quickly but after five minutes on the cartoon and drawing a blank I took the easy way out and looked for the answer. Good thing to because I know I wouldn’t have gotten it. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  7. It sure would be worth every cent
    Their investment money well spent
    A fast-flowing stream
    A camper’s dream
    That was the real inTENT!

    • Good Morning, Helen…🙋🏻‍♀️

      ⛺️Otyokwa the name of the creek,
      And it’s revenue that our Folks seek…
      So they made it a camp,
      Up their finances ramped…
      Actions definitely louder than speak…⛺️

      🏕 In the quest to have revenue stream,
      Our couple they thought of a theme…
      So some cabins they built,
      Put a camp on the silt…
      And now live the American dream! 🏕

      💰 Wanting to be financially set,
      Knowing they’d need that old safety net…
      These two came up with ways,
      To provide for old age…
      And they never had any regret! 💰

      🏕I’m thinking that we’re out in Maine,
      From what Google shows of the terrain…
      And today’s puzzle theme,
      Well to me, it does seem…
      That the bottom line was one of gain…🏕

      💰Our couple is looking quite real,
      Which gives me such a definite feel…
      That this just isn’t art,
      And our couple is part…
      Of an actual property deal…💰

  8. Another easy Jumble day and my final work day or the week. Half a blind solve when I saw Stream. Would have bet money that Angela’s song would be “Islands in the Stream” and I would’ve lost. Back on Sunday for more fun. Until then, be well.

    • Good Morning, OO. Yes, another easy one..But the song? There’s no Island!..😉🤷🏻‍♀️

  9. Too tricky for me this morning!!! Anagrams solved speedily and then put puzzle answer together quickly….but did need the letters. Have a great day.

  10. Anagrams were a quick solve,but the multitude of letters,especially the “E’s” gave reason to pause on the cartoon solution,but the creek led to streme,followed by the complete answer,revenue streme.

  11. When the solve REVENUE STREAM appeared back on March 24th, 2013, the question then was…”When he started charging people to fish in his creek, it created a”…

    What’s the DEAL with all this Money, money, money?…Prices PIKE-ing up everywhere…People FLOUNDERing just to pay bills…COD help us all if this continues…I REELy think it’s aTROUT time we HOOK up with some fishing holes that are totally free…You know just for the HALIBUT…🐠🤷🏻‍♀️

  12. Speaking if fishing or camping,I’ve never done either,maybe I’ve missed out.I always said I preferred golfing to fishing.

  13. Someone just told me that the link to “Down By The Old Mill Stream” wasn’t working. It was missing a letter..I fixed it.. Sorry about that…🤦🏻‍♀️

  14. No problem with the anagrams but the cartoon answer left me adrift. Kept thinking of “venture” for the first word but nothing worked with that for the second word and even though I kept studying the dialogue and cartoon clue just couldn’t figure it out. At any rate, I still wish all of you a good day.
