  1. Good Morning, Everyone…. 🗣 I’M ALL FOR SHE SPEECH! 🗣

    🎶 I am woman, hear me roar, in numbers too big to ignore…And I know too much to go back an’ pretend…I am strong (strong…I am invincible (invincible)…I am woman…🎶 “I Am Woman” – Helen Reddy 1972 https://tinyurl.com/2yeejeu4

    🗣Without an OUNCE of nervousness, she strolled out on stage,
    She had some notecards written, but I doubt more than a page…
    TOMATO growers near and far had come to hear her speak,
    And a slight RIPPLE filled the air as she came forth so chic…
    She’d practiced her speech many times, her mind sharp as a RAZOR,
    And comfortable she’s feeling now, decked out in her new blazer
    She’s polished and she’s confident, there’ll be no hesitation…
    The fruits of all her labor…(no pun) there’s been “PREP-ORATION”! 🗣

    Today’s puzzle, while not offering up any new words, is once again bringing us all new anagrams. But they didn’t cause any hiccups…And the solve? Another easy, breezy one…A SPEAK EASY shall we say…Between the spot-on question and dialogue, you just needed to take NOTE…The key to the Keynote Speaker’s lack of jitters? She SPOKE right to it…That ORATION she was about to give? Practice, practice, practice…She did the PREP work…”PREP-ORATION” indeed!

    As for our cartoon, you have to give it up for the woman doing the introduction. The “Emcee”…Could she be any more excited? I love the look on her face…Gives all new meaning to…E=mc leered…

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Be well, stay safe…and a special Shout Out to Jeff for giving us all female characters today. That definitely DREW me in! 🗣🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🍅 The RAZOR thin models were so concerned about gaining even an OUNCE, that in PREPARATION for their show, a RIPPLE was heard backstage that they would only be dining on a single TOMATO each…🍅

    🪨 The stone in the TOMATO shape, had one point like a RAZOR,
    And his challenge to skim some stones did nothing much to faze her…
    The ones he held, an OUNCE weight each, would probably work well,
    And make a decent RIPPLE out there on the water ‘s swell…
    But she just stood there thinking…Skimming stones…on my vacation?
    She’s disappointed seeing that his plans lack PREPARATION! 🪨

  3. Good morning ! Had a real fun time with today’s jumble . The words were smooth to get . I didn’t have one OUNCE of doubt and I was glad cause it had a RIPPLE effect to the jumble solution. So I’ll put a new RAZOR son my shaver and chomp down on my bacon, lettuce and TOMATO sandwich. Being a keynote speaker takes a very good blend of speaking clearly and knowing what your saying . All this is done with good PREPORATION . So speaking of the jumble , I’ll comment to you tomorrow for the next one . Good day everyone !!

  4. Angela – it looks like one of the anagrams could make two different valid words. But you are always good at arbitrating these: In trying to figure out the fourth word, it seems that RIPPLE could also be LIPPER. It seems that LIPPER is in the Merriam-Webster dictionary online as both a noun and a verb. But interestingly, if you plug in LIPPER as the answer, the 3 letters that go into the answer to the cartoon are still the same: “IPP”. What do you think? Could RIPPLE be LIPPER? 🙂

    • Hi Brad. Good Morning. It looks like you may be right. TBH, I don’t think I’ve ever seen or used the word Lipper, but yes, it is in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, and that’s what David uses as his Bible. And I just did a quick glance back, and I see that Ripple’s been used in Jumble puzzles for a few years…yet I don’t think it’s been brought up before, I’d need to check. So I’m going to bring it to David’s attention. Thanks for the heads up. But I have a question. What do you mean by “plug in Lipper as the answer”…and still get the letters IPP? You’ve lost me there…🤷🏻‍♀️

      • Hi Angela. What I meant was that in either answer, RIPPLE or LIPPER, the second, third and fourth letters are the same. Those 3 letters are I, P, and P. Those are the 3 letters which have circles around them for use in solving the cartoon puzzle. So, whether you selected RIPPLE or if you selected LIPPER, you would still be able to solve the cartoon puzzle…because interestingly, you would still have the same letters to work with. I’ve never seen this before. I wonder if this is a first! – Brad

        • Hi Brad…I had a bit of pandemic brain when I replied to you earlier, and realized it after. If you read my reply to Terry, you’ll see what I mean. Just a little harried this morning, and I’m not doing that well keeping all the balls in the air…But yes, I know what you meant. As far as the letters go though, yes, it may be a first, since David’s not known to use a word that can unscramble to anything but the one. Sorry for the confusion…🤷🏻‍♀️

          • I’d hazzard a guess to resolve the two-word dilemma — the instructions call for selecting “ordinary words” — this would allow for the occasional “extra-ordinary” word such as “LIPPER.”

            • Hi Raymond. Well said, and I agree that Lipper is hardly an “ordinary” word. But I’m still a little surprised, since I doubt David would want a word in play that could cause any sort of a RIPPLE! 😉 Thank you for commenting, and I hope we’ll hear from you again. Enjoy you day, Sir! 🗣🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. 🗣 She’s quite ready to speak to the crowd,
    And rightfully feeling quite proud…
    She’s practiced her speech,
    So it’s not a far reach…
    That there’s no way our girl will be cowed! 🗣

    🗣Public speaking is not such a breeze,
    One may not always feel so at ease…
    But today what we see,
    Is a woman quite free…
    Of any chance that she may freeze! 🗣

    🗣With a confidence second to none,
    Our girl’s practiced her speech, and won’t shun…
    The spotlight on she,
    And we all can agree…
    “PREP-ORATION” pays off…(‘cuse the pun)! 🗣

  6. Good morning. Had the words and Prep for the first word on the cartoon answer but failed to get the rest. With this one in quotations I decided on breakfast instead. Loved your song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • LOL! Good Morning, Paul. Thank you…And you can’t go wrong with the breakfast! Have a good one, Paul…Be well and stay safe out there…🗣🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Tough little puzzle today, although with anagrams unscrambled and letters in front of me…twas easy pickings. Angela, am sure Brad meant LIPPER and RIPPLE each reveal the same three letter IPP combo needed to solve the puzzle….but you knew that !!

    Good song and fairly cryptic puzzle. Talk to you on Turkey day

    • Hi Terry. Good Morning..Yes, 🤦🏻‍♀️ I realized it after I replied to him…It just kind of went over my head for a minute…the term “plug in” is what threw me. I don’t write any letters, so I don’t use the circles, and I just blanked. Mea culpa…😉…And thanks..glad you enjoyed the song. Have a good day, Terry. On to tomorrow!…🗣🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
    Tomato stumped me at first,then ripple looked like pill-ER to me,so w the wrong letters from the incorrect fill in for ripple,I was even stumped by the cartoon,a complete Jumble wipeout.

    • Happy Thanksgiving Eve to you too, Professor. And no worries…I’m sure you’ll recover tomorrow! Have a good one…and stay safe out there! 🗣🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Easy breezy puzzle today. Interesting conversation on the “ripple” “lipper” debate. Can’t say I’ve ever used the word lipper so I’ve learned something new today. Happy Wednesday all!

    • Same here, Betty. Lipper definitely doesn’t ring a bell…Hope your day’s going well …I’m just about finishing with the lasagna…We really need to stick to being Americans…and stop with all this -&&&(,! %@ food…I’m tired! 😂 Happy Wednesday, Betty…Be well and stay safe…🗣🙋🏻‍♀️

      • But think of how good it will taste tomorrow. You’re a champ and I’m sure your family will appreciate your efforts.

        • It’s tasting pretty good right now! 😂😂 I’ve no willpower at all..🤦🏻‍♀️Thanks Betty. You’re a champ in my book too…Have a great night…🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Well the cartoon doesn’t say anything about what the speech was about , so maybe she was going to speak about the galaxy and refer to the Big ‘LIPPER’ , I had to do it , lol !
