  1. Good Morning, Everyone…. 🍪 COOKIE …JARRED! 🍪

    🎶 If I don’t see her each day I miss her…Gee, what a thrill each time I kiss her…Believe me I’ve got a case…On NANCY with the laughin’ face…🎶 “Nancy” – Mr Frank Sinatra 1955 https://tinyurl.com/nh9jra22

    🏒 Our Nancy Ritz is only eight, I thought she was ELEVEN,
    She’s authored now by Olivia James, who numbers in at seven..
    (The Brothers Gilchrist shared before, and four preceded them),
    But Nancy never lost her charm, the comic’s still a gem…
    She’s BOUND to find some mischief, just like we see today,
    She should have brought a PILLOW…’cause that jar…it’s gonna splay…
    Where someone a guitar might STRUM, our Nancy plucks a nerve,
    She keeps Aunt Fritzi on her toes, she’s quick to throw a curve
    I guess Nancy is typical, living in a child’s bubble…
    It’s just that like what we see here? Nancy can def SPELL TROUBLE! 🏒

    Our last but hardly least Guest Jumbler is Olivia James, https://tinyurl.com/m5peyneh the first woman to be the writer and illustrator of Nancy. https://tinyurl.com/y44cwbty Having taken over the reins only three years ago, she’s made Nancy more relevant to today’s world, and it’s a welcome change…

    So, Nancy…Slyly entering the kitchen with a taped hockey stick, which she plans to use to get at that cookie jar atop the refrigerator…How?…You got me…Does she plan to push it to the edge, drop the stick and catch the jar before it hits the ground? Will she climb up on the cabinet and get to it from there? Uh…Has she even thought this out? Seriously, I’m curious…But the bottom line…This Jumble doesn’t SPELL TROUBLE, but Nancy definitely does! …And it’s antics like this that have succeeded in making Nancy the fan favorite she’s been for so many years!

    So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day. Be well, stay safe, and our special thanks to Olivia James for joining us during our 9th Annual Guest Jumbler Week…And here’s to Number 10! 🏒🙋🏻‍♀️


    …Ironically, a puzzle from last years Guest Jumble Week…Almost to a T… The puzzle of November 17th…The question: “When Broome-Hilda’s magic backfired, it”…The solve? SPELLED TROUBLE! https://tinyurl.com/2af5twzc

  3. 🙇🏻In order to STRUM up business, they contracted to have all the PILLOW deliveries completed by ELEVEN, and were now BOUND to it, but they fell behind schedule, and feared it would definitely SPELL TROUBLE…🙇🏻

    🎸 He liked to lie alone and simply STRUM on his guitar,
    He thought that he might next try his hand at the old sitar…
    He wasn’t BOUND to master them, but the sounds were like heaven,
    He’d tinkered with all instruments since he had turned ELEVEN
    He plumped the PILLOW ‘neath his head, he turned it over double…
    And practiced the new song he wrote, entitled “Don’t SPELL TROUBLE”….🎸🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Easy peasy. I usually find the guest Jumbles more easy. Looking forward to David and Jeff’s return. Their Jumbles are more difficult and fun!

  5. Good morning Saturday Jumblers ! I’m starting to get kind of understanding a little with our guest jumblers , but I won’t miss em ! Anyway the anagrams were smooth and I got ‘em all before ELEVEN ! I was BOUND and determined to solve them before I put my head on the PILLOW sand went to sleep. That gave me a different way to STRUM them to make my own music that Nancy might sing and not SPELL TROUBLE ! 🎵 like a bridge over Troubled water , I will lay me down 🎵 Everyone have a great weekend !!

  6. She’s the type who’s in control
    Topple the cookie jar – that’s her goal
    She’ll raise the stick
    And with a quick flick
    Well, who’s going to know what she stole!

    • Hi Helen…🍪🤷🏻‍♀️

      🏒 Cookie jar and a pro hockey stick,
      Common sense tells us they just don’t mix…
      But our girl’s standing there,
      Looking devil may care…
      Yep, it’s Nancy up to her old tricks! 🏒

      🧍🏻‍♀️Little Nancy with bow in her hair,
      Has been round now for many a year…
      In her own comic realm,
      Now a woman’s at helm!
      And new Nancy still remains a dear! 🧍🏻‍♀️

      🏒 Nancy Ritz, yes a scamp she sure is,
      O’er the years many laughs Nancy gives…
      We see her by the door,
      And she’s looking to score…
      Let’s hope Aunt Fritz is up to forgive…🏒

  7. Seeing the guest jumblers this week made me appreciate the work of David and Jeff even more, in how they come up with creative cartoons with interesting puns day in and day out. I thought I would never solve today’s cartoon, but got lucky and happened to notice the letters could solve “TROUBLE”…and then “SPELL” was easy. Angela – thanks for keeping this going every day. Have a good weekend. Perfect fall weather in Texas.

    • Brad…Thank you very much for the acknowledgement…And tomorrow, back to business as usual…with a puzzle whose dialogue serves us well…Wishing you a good weekend too…🍪🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Good morning. The words were a breeze but the cartoon answer took some time because I had Score for the first word stuck in my head. Even though it was giving me trouble I finally saw trouble in the twelve letters with Spell remaining for the finish. First time hearing “Old Blue Eyes” Nancy song and I enjoyed his music. Thanks to Mike and Angela for all they do. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  9. Well….not a terrible way to finish up jumbling on a Saturday….Like others, anagrams solved speedily and after a moment or two, saw TROUBLE…and SPELL was left over. Immediately thought Music Man’s TROUBLE (right here in River City) was gonna be song of day, but pleasantly surprised Angela reached out to Nancy for her song selection, which was absolutely FAB. A great song by one of my favorite composers, Jimmy Van Heusen. This song has a notable history, which I won’t bore you with…but originally penned by Phil Silvers for his wife, Bessie…and typically sung at 40’s birthday parties until Frank Sinatra’s new daughter born…and they sung Nancy to the tune. He thought it was composed originally for her….and nobody dared correct him. Thanks, Angela.

    • Hi Terry…Rest assured your stories are never boring…I love that you appreciate music as much as I do…But with all due respect, while Phil Silvers did write the lyrics for the song, he didn’t write them for his wife, but rather for Jimmy’s lyricist Johnny Burke’s. And yes, Sinatra did “take it wrong”…but when he recorded it…he definitely got it right! And thank you, Terry…Have a good one! 🎶🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Tk you…That’s very kind of you to say, I try…And then there’s those days when I walk around searching for my keys…that are right there in my pocket…😂 Life! Have a good night, Terry…Pleasant dreams…🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Eleven w it’s multiple E’s gave me reason to pause,but having solved the anagrams,spell was an obvious first word cartoon solution,quickly followed by the complete “spell trouble” solution.

  11. Cute puzzle this morning. Nancy is not printed in our paper but I do remember her from years past and yes, she usually caused trouble. I have really enjoyed guest Jumblers week. Wishing all of you a good weekend.

  12. Like others, I found Trouble first and then unscrambled Spell. I also enjoyed GJW and add my thanks to them for taking on the challenge. I had fun learning about the different comics, their characters and history. Wishing all a great day.
