  1. Good Morning, Everyone…. 🐦 WHEN THE CHIME IS RIGHT 🐦

    🎶 TIME is on my side, yes it is…🎶 “Time Is On My Side” – The Rolling Stones 1964 https://tinyurl.com/3rrs46c4

    🐦He’s trying to win FAVOR, the young man we see here,
    And he feels a tad CREST-fallen when it comes to his career…
    He’s like a little DOMINO, lined up and prone to fall,
    But his stress level will REDUCE soon…in time he’ll learn it all
    The Clockmaker will teach him ‘bout this business of the chimes…
    And soon he’ll see what makes clocks tick…all in the COURSE OF TIME! 🐦

    Today our words and one of our anagrams, are all part of the Jumble lexicon, with SERTC having been seen in October of last year. And there was just the slightest bit of a TICK with an Early Bird when it came to DOMINO. The solve? With the Clockmaker saying he’d “teach” the apprentice, and our question telling us that he’d “learn”… Over the COURSE OF TIME https://tinyurl.com/2p9f4xf9 was easy, breezy…SECOND to none…

    As for our cartoon, we see two of the three cuckoos emerging from the clocks hanging on the wall chiming at the stroke of three, and the makings of another clock lying unbuilt on the table. And our man of the HOUR, the apprentice, despite feeling unsure of himself right now, needn’t worry…’cause the old clockmaker definitely knows what he’s TOCKING about…he’ll have his young charge RUNNING fine in no TIME…

    So…There you have it Folks, Done. Be well, stay safe…and always stay the COURSE…🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤷🏻‍♀️Having failed in his attempts to REDUCE over the COURSE OF TIME, he decided to wear a DOMINO with a CREST on the hood as part of his costume…and hoped he’d win FAVOR with the others…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🙇🏻‍♂️ He had to REDUCE overhead, lest the DOMINO effect
    Begins to ruin his business…and for sure he’d then be wrecked…
    He def could use a FAVOR, he felt he had reached the CREST,
    But it could all go downhill, if he didn’t bring his best
    Determined not to fail though…he’ll invest his last thin dime…
    And hope that things will turn around over the COURSE OF TIME…🙇🏻‍♂️

  3. Good morning ! This one was a fun one ! The first two words I got , but the third and fourth words were not in my FAVOR . So to REDUCE my stress , I had to look up the third word and I sang 🎵ohhhhh DOMINO 🎵 it was there just a little over the CREST , so I felt good once all the words were there . Now the jumble was very good and the young apprentice that was building the clocks couldn’t help to sing your song Angela 🎵 time………is on my side , yes it is 🎵 so he just stayed on the COURSE OF TIME . That came to me in a very timely manner . Ok , so everyone have a great weekend and have some fun !!

  4. Good morning! Easy blind solve today on the cartoon…as TIME was the obvious missing word from the cartoon. DOMINO slowed me down, as it did with Jim, …, but knowing the letters from the cartoon answer helped me “back into” the word DOMINO. As a relative newbie to Jumble, it’s interesting that there doesn’t ever seem to be any new words. Most all the words have been previously used in the past 2-3 years. Angela – I wonder if all the possible 5-letter and 6-letter words have been already used, and David and Jeff have run out of new words to use? Anyway…have a good weekend. Rainy one in Texas!

    • Good Morning, Brad. Considering that the Jumble’s been around since 1954, it’s not all that much of a surprise that there wouldn’t be all that many new words left out there for David to play with. And we have had a new word here and there. But I do know that David prides himself on keeping things as “fresh”, as possible, which if you think about it, is a monumental task. Are there any new words left out there? Hard to say…but I personally find the number of new anagrams in itself mind boggling. Wishing you a good weekend too, Brad. Take care. 🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Not just ordinary, but even with the odd word or two, David keeps them conversational. Maybe not your average, everyday cocktail party conversation, but definitely in the ball park. He eschews any medically related words, and also has to be sure that the words aren’t any that can be scrambled into other possibilities. And again, after 67 years? We’re definitely talking serious word power here! My hats off to him! Have a good day, Raymond, and thank you for commenting. 🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

    • There are many five and six letter words that can’t be used because of anagrams. For example, LISTEN will never appear because it anagrams to TINSEL, ENLIST, INLETS, and SILENT. This reduces the available words considerably. These need to be ordinary words, too. ZSGYYY will never appear because SYZYGY, while it is a word, is not an ordinary word. So there are only a few words to work from. I am surprised that the non-ordinary words XENON and DIVET popped up in Jumbles recently. This tells me that they are reaching for some of these words.

      • Yes, we’ve already established that many words can’t be used because of the anagrams,…and the “common” word usage is printed right there on each Jumble puzzle…But DIVET? 🤷🏻‍♀️

  5. Yes, the apprentice would learn to build quality clocks over the COURSE OF TiME, but only after the OUSTER OF MICE. Otherwise, the mice would run up all of these clocks and mess with their fine tuning. Their answer was to have the clocks chime, scaring away the mice if they approach. “Hickory dickory dock. The mouse ran up the clock. The clock struck one, the mouse ran down, hickory dickory dock.”

    • ⏰ Hickory, dickory dock,
      Fake solutions I do best to block…
      Just ‘cause letters form words,
      Makes it no less absurd…
      Dave’s solutions I’m not one to mock! ⏰

      Have a good one, Jim. Enjoy! 🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Good morning all….easy blind solve this morning; therefore, finishing up the week on a strong note after dismal Guest Host week and first few days of Thanksgiving week. Angela, didn’t understand your reference to “Which Anagram was the HONE-LY one you couldn’t solve”?? Where did HONE come from?? Also, not familiar with song.
    All the anagrams seemed a little bit cryptic and quite frankly, didn’t just zip through them, but had to cogitate awhile on them, with REDUCE having to be backed in. And it looks like a rainy day in our part of Texas, too !!!

    • Good Morning, Terry. I’m sorry I can’t help you on the HONE-LY reference, it’s Mike who posted it. But I’m glad to hear that you’re happy with this week’s puzzles…they were fun. …..And you’re going to enjoy tomorrow’s too…it’s a good one to end the week with. No rain here, but cold and overcast…perfect day to relax and enjoy college football…Have a good one, Terry…🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Terry, seeing the beautiful clocks hanging on the wall made me think that the master clockmaker had carefully developed (or HONED) his craft over the course of time.

  7. While some mistakes are sure to be made
    While learning the tricks of the trade
    He’ll soon be ticking along
    And it shouldn’t take long
    Time to master won’t be delayed!

  8. Today is SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY….the perfect day to support our local businesses. So many of them were adversely impacted by the pandemic, and the ones that were fortunate enough to survive it all definitely need that shot in the arm. No pun intended! So grab that Christmas list, and let’s get out there and show our appreciation. Every little bit helps! 🛍 🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Good morning. Don’t know what happened to my earlier post, it’s floating somewhere in the clouds. Took a minute longer to get the six letter words. I had a blind solve on the cartoon answer. It makes up for yesterday not being able to get the rest after having gotten eight. Enjoyed your song choice Angela. Couldn’t have picked a better one. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul…Not again! A SECOND time? This just happened to you Thursday…Hmm…😉🤷🏻‍♀️… I had the solve automatically too, it’s a very clever one…Glad you like the song choice, it’s always been a favorite…Wishing you a great day Paul, and hope you’re staying well and safe too…🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Reduce and domino gave me reason to pause,but then having solved those,the cartoon solution was a quick one,given ‘time’ as an obvious choice.Our son and daughter have a flower/gift shop in Dixon,and we wish them the best on “small business shopping day.”
    Also best wishes to The OSU Buckeyes in The Game vs the Wolverines today.

    • Hi Professor. Yes, it was a quick solve. And good luck to your kids today…Have agood one, Prof. Enjoy! 🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. Solved the anagrams and cartoon answer in a timely manner this morning. I plan to put on my “Black Belt in Shopping” and hit the local stores today. Wishing all of you a good day.

  12. Done in no time! Once I noticed Time in the answer, the rest was easily found of course!
    Bless you all on this American Thanksgiving weekend!

    • Thank you, Christian. That’s very kind of you. And bless you too…Have a wonderful day! 🐦🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Not to worry, Eleanor…there’s always tomorrow! Be well and have a great day…🐦🙋🏻‍♀️
