  1. Good Morning, Everyone…🏃🏻 RUNNING FOR YOUR LIFE 🏃🏻
    🎶 The ROAD is long…with many a WINDING TURN…That leads us to who knows where…who knows where…But I’m strong, strong enough to carry him….He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother…🎶…”He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” – The Hollies 1969 https://tinyurl.com/53ccp6jj

    🏃🏻All runners know it’s SAFETY first when venturing a run,
    There are elements to deal with…could be rain, or wind, or sun…
    One needs to HOIST their spirits, and definitely set a pace,
    The slow and steady holds some truth when you’re running a race…
    To shoot off like a ROCKET might not be the smartest bet,
    (And DIVOT doesn’t fit the realm, there’s no dirt in this set)…
    But water’s so important…so you don’t see your strength fade…
    And end up like our guy…in dire need of some “THIRST” AID! 🏃🏻

    This would have been ideal had it RUN yesterday, don’t you think…with it being the return of the NYC Marathon?…Not that it isn’t good for today also…of COURSE it is…But you know what I mean…Anyway….as long as we have a puzzle…I’ll just take it all in STRIDE…

    So…Another day, another Jumble…and another repeat performance with our words. All old favorites, and just as with Friday’s puzzle, we’ve a split decision with our anagrams. Two old and two new…in the RUNNING. VTIDO appeared back in 2011, and SITOH in 2018. And as always, all four anagrams are excellent…But none of them gave the Early Birds a RUN for their money…The solve? Once again, between the LEADING nature of the cartoon and the spot-on dialogue, this was just another walk in the park…Well, more like a RUN to the FINISH LINE…

    Simple and to the point, our cartoon shows the camaraderie and kindness that exists amongst runners. And how the runner at left, having an extra water bottle, was quick to give it to the runner at right who was experiencing dehydration…He offered…”THIRST” AID.

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well and stay safe out there…🏃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Not hard but more difficult than most Monday Js
      The 3rd and 4th anagram took me a little more time then I would expect.
      Overalll a funyon!
      Hard to fathom that Tuesday is up next…………………….

  2. 🚀 From the SAFETY of the FIRST AID shed, he watched them HOIST the ROCKET, which caused a DIVOT or two of sod to become dislodged…🚀

    🏌🏻‍♂️All golfers know a DIVOT, where the sod can get a HOIST,
    It’s common and will happen ‘specially if the ground is moist…
    Some shoot up like a ROCKET, while some others slowly fade…
    For SAFETY’s sake be careful…’cause you’d hate to need FIRST AID! 🏌🏻‍♂️

  3. I really enjoyed today’s jumble ! The words were easy and the runner needed some water cause he was very THIRSTy . That word ran toward me as soon as I saw the letters , then the only three letters left were AID . Not one anagram gave me a DIVOT . What a great one to HOIST into the week ! So everybody have a wonderful Monday! I’m gonna ROCKET myself out and get into my SAFETY mode ! Have a great start to the week ! And great song choice , I couldn’t think of any ! Have a good day !

  4. Good morning. Agree with Mig. You had to think a little longer on the last two words. Not a blind solve but a successful one. Appropriate song choice Angela for this cartoon. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Tks…And here’s to you staying well and safe too…🏃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Today’s Jumble has no solution. This is because the first set of letters can’t be anagrammed to an ordinary word. The instructions say “Unscramble these Jumbles one letter to each square to form four ORDINARY words”. There is only one word that can be made out of VTIDO and that is DIVOT, which is NOT an ordinary word. It’s a specialized golf term. And I say that if LOGLAN is not allowed as a word, then DIVOT should not be allowed either. The best that can be done with this Jumble is I DO TV, which results in the same solution, namely THIRST AID. But I DO TV is three words, not one, so one gets six words, not four. No, there is no solution.

    • My first thought when seeing VTIDO was DIVVY, as in divvy up the proceeds. So I happened on DIVOT but thought it was misspelled DIVVY. I had to look up the dictionary definition to get that it is a golf term. The word also resembles PIVOT and RIVET.

  6. Good timing on the puzzle with the NY and L.A. marathons both run yesterday. Liking the song choice Angela as it references the Boys Town motto and the Hollies were much underrated.
    The Boys Town campus used to be just west of OTown but now is practically in the heart of the city. The golfer hit a Rocket shot that left a huge Divot and he decided to Hoist a brew when the ball found the Safety of the green. Gorgeous Fall days for golf or running this weekend out on the Great Plains.

    • Tks, OO…and I like the golf slant. Enjoy your good weather…Take care…🏃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. When running ’til fit to burst
    You must take care of your thirst
    If you’re planning to coast
    Then lunge for the post
    And you’re aiming to finish in first.!

      • Thank you Angela! Looking forward to your limericks today.
        The land border between Canada and USA opens today after its covid break. I won’t be making the trip just yet but there will be many Canadians heading to Florida ASAP.

        • YW…I thought I had posted mine already…It’s a juggling day for sure. 🤷🏻‍♀️

          🏃🏻While running is great for its sport,
          One must not let oneself come up short…
          Take steps to stay safe,
          As you regulate pace…
          Or like our guy you’ll need some support…🏃🏻

          🏃🏻Dehydration…it’s def not a joke,
          As we see happening with our bloke…
          Luckily…some thirst aid,
          And for that accolades…
          Signs of kindness our cartoon evokes 🏃🏻

          🏃🏻You can run and do good for your heart,
          But precaution…a move that is smart…
          Bring some water along,
          So endurance stays strong…
          There’s a long way to go from that start! 🏃🏻

  8. Oh me, oh my…my first Jumble error of the week. I somehow copied down letters from HOIST wrong, which didn’t give me two T’s. Therefore, though THIRS was a part of solution, couldn’t spell THIRST. Yep, had to go back and redo words.

    Saw the song video, which I vaguely remember. Wonder if Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra ever came out bare-chested in concert….Just wonderin’

    And for those with dictionarys in hand, the word DIVOT is also a piece of sod used in roofing….Scottish, I would think.

    Thanks, Angela, for your Monday musings !!!

    • ROTFL! Frank and Dean bare-chested in concert? Not that I recall…I’d have to look it up!!! 😂 You never cease to give me a laugh, Terry! The letter switch? Definitely a common occurrence…And thanks for the shout out…Enjoy your day, Terry. Be well and stay safe out there…🏃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Today is NATIONAL PARENTS AS TEACHERS DAY…Which took on new meaning and was truly put to the TEST this past year. A special shout out to all those parents, Grandparents, and care-givers who did their best in an effort to make the quarantine as bearable as possible for their children…🙋🏻‍♀️ https://tinyurl.com/sfh6ucs

  10. The familiar anagrams and simple answer made for a fast solve. I liked your song choice’s “brother” angle, Angela. Recently, I learned that the sensation of thirst diminishes with age, so it’s good to remember to drink enough.

    • Tks, Caroline. And another thing diminishing with age??? 🤦🏻‍♀️😂Have a good one, Caroline…Enjoy! 🏃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. Happy Monday everyone! Looking at the cartoon again this morning, I noticed the bib numbers on the runners. The gentleman on the left was wearing 19 and the one on the right was wearing 5?. If the number hidden by the water bottle was a 4, it just might be an easter egg left for us by Jumble Jeff as 1954 was the year the Jumble was created by Martin Naydel.

  12. A little tougher than a usual Monday Jumble for me,as rocket gave me reason to pause,thn safety looked like ‘feast-y’ to me.After sorting that out,and seeing aid as the 3 letter word in the cartoon solution,thirst aid was a quick solve.Divot was a quick solve for this avid golfer as well.Enjoy this sunny warm Monday!

  13. Like Chuck & Dennis I first saw safety as “feasty”. Other than that blip, it was an easy solve this morning. Happy Monday to all.
