  1. Good Morning, Everyone… 🔠 THE WRITE STUFF! 🔠
    
    🎶 Reading, WRITING arithmetic ! are the branches of the LEARNING tree….Oh, ABC…It’s easy as one, two, three…Ah, simple as Do Re Mi…ABC, one, two, three…Baby, you and me, Girl…🎶 “ABC” – The Jackson 5 1970 https://tinyurl.com/u2ff2k92

    🔠 I never could quite understand how PETTY Folks can be,
    By not showing excitement when a kid learns ABC’s…
    It’s just so hard to FIGURE out why they don’t make a fuss,
    To me praising a child always results in a plus…
    (A)-BACK ** when I was growing up, my parents lavished praise,
    When I would learn a new thing…guess it’s just the way you’re raised…
    So I’m happy to see here that with this girl there’s no SQUASH,
    A simple thing like letter “A”…? There won’t be a kibosh
    She’s mastered her first letter…and she now is on her way…
    And she’s so deserving of that praise…Here’s to many more STRAIGHT A’S! 🔠

    There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s face light up when they realize that they’ve mastered something. The simple ABC things in life are always the best…

    Our words today add up to a lot of CHILDs play…Old words, and 3 out of 4 old anagrams…We have CABKA from way back on 09/03/04, TYEPT, seen numerous times, the last being this September, and SSUHAQ from 2018. The sole holdout? GFRUIE…And it FIGUREs that it’d be the only word that 2 of the Early Birds didn’t get right off the bat…But they easily FIGUREd it out…And the solve? They all brought their “A” game with that…and they all scored STRAIGHT A’S! Pun intended!

    Our cartoon brings us into what appears to be a family kitchen, and we see our doting parents praising their daughter for writing 7 capital A’s. And the child’s endearing sense of accomplishment is matched by her Mom and Dad calling her a “Star”, and telling her she’s “at the head of the class”…The Gems? Mom with her three ear piercings is wearing a Jumble polo shirt, and the box of markers on the table under the extra sheets of paper is a Jumble product too…And the girl’s opened backpack on the chair is adorned with the daisies that Jeff often adds into his drawings when he features a little girl…And that line of STRAIGHT A’S? The final one? Leave it to Jeff to draw it ..A little A-skew!

    So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a good one…Be well, stay safe…and that’s all she WROTE…🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

    ** Yes, I know it’s incorrect. But I’m tired, Folks…so I’m playing off our theme…and pulling the poetic license card…🤷🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤷🏻‍♂️ He was taken ABACK when his guests were PETTY enough to criticize his SQUASH recipe, for which he’d gotten STRAIGHT A’S in culinary class…go FIGURE! 🤷🏻‍♂️

    🐜 She had to SQUASH the little bug, but how she dreaded vermin,
    It may sound PETTY but a bug? She could write you a sermon…
    ABACK she’d always be thrown, and to FIGURE why was moot,
    And all she’s thinking right now is she wished she’d worn her boots!
    She’s getting dizzy at the sight…a vermin-induced haze…
    Were there a class for “Bug Phobia”? She’d def get all STRAIGHT A’S! 🐜

  3. Good morning ! I FIGURE the anagrams pretty good , but was thrown ABACK on the jumble. I got “start “ , “sight” words and that SQUASHed it ! Well I’m not being PETTY , so have a great start of the week and always keep your As STRAIGHT !! Great song Angela ! Goodnight !

  4. Am going to the Jumble Polls today to vote Angela the gift of a lifetime poetic license card….to be pulled at her discretion as she sees fit. Twas an extremely easy puzzle that I didn’t see right off the bat…Therefore, did the usual, unscrambled easy anagrams and put it all together without much work. As a small consolation…am humming a favorite song of mine…Teach Me Tonight. See you Tuesday

    • Good Morning, Terry…and thank you. You’re very sweet…And yes, it is a very easy puzzle today…And with so many great renditions of your song out there, I’m choosing Miss Dinah Washington’s for you… https://tinyurl.com/559xfe4n I hope you enjoy it…Have a good one, Terry…and thanks again. 🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

        • YVW, Terry. And I think no matter whose arrangement…one can never go wrong with Sammy Cahn lyrics…👍🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. School days, school days. Dear old golden rule days. Easy as Monday morning with nothing taking me Aback and no Petty problems were able to Figure in and Squash my enthusiasm. Getting cold out here on the Great Plains with that four-letter word, snow, creeping out of the Rockies. Putting the golf clubs away and winterizing. Only 19 weeks until Spring!

    • Easy as Monday morning indeed, OO…Too easy…but cute and clever just the same. And that 4-letter word? Sshhh…not yet, please. Give us time to enjoy the beauty 🍁🍂 that is November…Enjoy your day, OO…Take care…🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. For the child just learning to write
    The first attempt is a powerful sight
    Just feeling her way
    She’ll go on far from A
    All to her parents’ delight!

    • Good Morning, Helen. Wishing you a wonderful day…🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

      ✏️ With a pencil and paper in hand,
      Here’s a child we see understand…
      That to practice is key,
      And the pride of these three?
      Sets the stage on which learning is planned! ✏️

      • Thank you Angela. The sun shone yesterday afternoon and mild temps continued into early evening, so it was ideal for the trick or treaters. Sunny again today. We had a lot of rain last week n S. Ont.

        • YVW, Helen. And God knows we’ve had our share of rain here too…But yesterday was pleasant, and as we speak I see the sun doing it’s best to make an appearance. Fingers crossed! 🤞🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. With online learning during covid, learning to print is far from a done deal these days. Many children just hit the key on the keyboard and the idea of actually printing it is another concept altogether.

    • Remote learning definitely had it’s limitations, Helen…But nothing beats sitting with a child and going through those drills of the “up and down and across”…I still enjoy doing it! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

      • For those children who do actually print letters, they write them in their own way – down and up instead of up and down. The results are often messy and frequently illegible and as for cursive writing……

        • Ah…But this is where the patience comes in. I’m now working with a 3 and a 4 year old, and our letters are coming out beautifully! Granted, one is luckier than the other, since her name involves six all straight-lined letters…but the other is up for the challenge! And I’m taking as much pleasure as he is in the end results! Learning has to be fun based…(and patience-fueled)! 😉 The cursive? Definitely another story!! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. This was too easy, a giveaway. Not many words are of the form x’y, mostly contractions such as I’m and I’d. The other possibility is plurals, and usually it is not proper to include an apostrophe in a plural, because that’s reserved for possessive words such as Ben’s. Even non-letter words should not use the apostrophe for a plural. Today’s temperature will be in the 60s, not the 60’s, for instance. Runs batted in is RBIs, not RBI’s. The one exception is single letters, as the lack of the apostrophe can cause confusion. It’s A’s, not As, because As is a different word, AS in “AS things go”. Also P’s and Q’s to be consistent, but BBs for bases on balls. The hardest word was FIGURE; for that one I had to list all the possibilities; there were only 36 of them not 720, because I had solved the cartoon clue and the other three words already.

    • I think today will be an automatic solve for most people, Jim…It sort of leaps right off the page…Definitely STRAIGHTforward! And I’ve had the apostrophe conversation with more than one person last night and this morning…Apostrophes are always interesting…Personally I think I’ll never master them…Enjoy your day, Jim…Take care! 🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Jim, you picked up on something that has gotten to be a sore spot with me. I see a lot of misuse of the apostrophe with an s when someone is trying to pluralize a word. A lot of folks appear to have missed the day in class when correct usage of the apostrophe was taught. I’m thankful everyday for the years that I came through school…a lot of today’s kids claim they can’t read cursive writing. Anyhow, have a great day!!

  9. WELCOME NOVEMBER! ..And with it comes one of my favorites quotes… “Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn.” —Emily Bronte 🍁🍂🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. I didn’t notice the apostrophe at first,and thought the last 2 one letter words in the cartoon solution,were A,but then noticing the apostrophe,realized the last 2 letters were A’s,so the straight A’s solution quickly followed.We’re colder this morning,temps in the 30’s,but no precip or SNOW!

    • Professor…We’ve agreed NOT to speak that dreaded “S” word! 😉…And yes, that apostrophe was definitely needed! Stay warm, and have a great day…🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. An easy Monday ! T’was refreshing to read a lesson on ‘s. I have a peeve of my own… Loving the world of competition, I dread the adjective GOOD for the adverb WELL. I understand the girl is quite young however her parents and teachers should have corrected her and thus, I would have preferred that the words would have been: I DID WELL. An excellent opportunity to teach GOOD English. Just a thought! Don’t be hard on me… It’s bad enough we’re entering the dreaded month of November!

    • Point well take, Christian. It’s all too common an grammatical error. But considering she’s just a child, and this is a puzzle promoting positive reinforcement…I think we can let her slide this time…Writing today, speaking correctly tomorrow. One lesson at a time…At least Jeff didn’t place them in Brooklyn…where we’d most likely hear…”I done good, right”? 😂😂 (And yes, that’s a joke)!!! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Always GOOD to hear from you, Sir…and I hope your day goes WELL! 🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

  12. Off to an easy start this Monday. Cute puzzle. Lifetime poetic license card for Angela. Now that’s a clever idea. Wishing all of you a good day.

  13. No fuss, no muss, no bother, no mustard!
    Kind of an interesting J which lead to an erudite apostrophe discussion. What is next? Semi-colons???
    Tomorrow.
    Be here

    • I’m surprised you didn’t say WHAT’S next! 😉 Have a good night, Mig. 🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

  14. I’m amazed how the time used to dismantle the words.I’m a jumble fan and I look forward reading the replies. I’m 84 Senior and thank the jumble folks for keeping my brain alert.

    • Glad that you enjoy what we do here. Thanks for commenting…and have a good night! 🔠🙋🏻‍♀️
