  1. Good Morning, Everyone… 🐑 BRINGING IN THE SHEEP? 🐑

    🎶 By and by the HARVEST and the labor ended…We shall come rejoicing…BRINGING IN THE SHEEP… Though the LOSS sustained our spirit often grieves…When our WEEPING’S over…We shall come rejoicing BRINGING IN THE SHEEP…🎶 “Bringing in the Sheaves” (Mea culpa…and with sincere apologies to) Knowles Shaw 1874 https://tinyurl.com/yckjdjj3

    🃏So why does Jeff HOUND David, and act the ZEALOT here?
    And why does David feel UNFIT…unequal, not a peer?
    It’s Poker, Folks we’re seeing…where mercy doesn’t reign,
    And anyone not up to snuff…well it can be your bane…
    You see no food is being served, no HOAGIE for our guy,
    It’s curtains for old David…time’s come to say goodbye….
    As close as these two are in life, here friendship’s put on hold…
    And David is the fish we see…def reeled INTO THE FOLD! 🃏

    POKER – FOLD: To discard one’s hand and forfeit participating in the current pot. No further bets are required by the folding player, and there’s no way the player can win…

    INTO THE FOLD: The idiom INTO THE FOLD means to welcome someone into a group of people who share the same faith or system of beliefs…or in this case someone they saw coming from a mile away…
    …And with the above two definitions, I’ve set the TABLE…the Poker table that is…

    So…With all our words having been seen in past Jumble GAMES, today NUHOD is the only anagram that’s been in PLAY before…but I have to HAND it to David for Gaiohe and Laztoe…Very well PLAYED!…And it was only Hoagie that the EBs would CHEWS as a bit of a stumper. (Maybe because most of them call it a hero)… But the solve? Maybe you need to be a Poker player, but it was an automatic read for us all…With Jeff taunting David, and his friend Lissa advising him to FOLD, (see above)…it was easy to see what we were DEALING with here…Poor David…He’s a FISH out of ‘OUGHTA..like a lamb led to slaughter…’cause he ‘OUGHTA just CALL https://tinyurl.com/ne4x8vfa it a night…And yes, of course these seasoned players were “happy to welcome” his inexperience INTO THE FOLD…

    The Gems? The man to Jeff’s right, (who I thought might be one of his usual Poker susSPECS, Dennis, but if so, the TABLEs have turned, since he’s not wearing glasses) is HOLDING a pair of Jacks…but the suit shown is the signature Jumble “J”…and the man to his right, who might be another player we’ve seen before, Donnie, has a drink in his hand…but there’s no coaster in sight…I FELT the pain of that ruining the table….And while Jeff, tossing chips into the pot, is seen sporting one of his Wilco T-shirts, Lissa, seemingly sitting this one out, is seen without eyelashes! That Jeff…what a CARD! As for David? Well this time…there are no WORDS!

    So…There you have it Folks, Done…Be well, stay safe…and in the words of Kenny Rogers, whose song I’ve used here many times before…🎶..You gotta know when to hold ‘em…know when to FOLD ‘em..🎶… https://tinyurl.com/2p8rmhyp 🃏🙋🏻‍♀️

    PS: And I’m sure David knows that I played this all close to the JEST!

  2. 🥖 When she was making him a HOAGIE, he called her UNFIT to do so and started to HOUND her about how the cheese had to be INTO THE FOLD of the ham…so she called him a sandwich ZEALOT..and left him to do it himself…🥖

    🥖He opened up a HOAGIE shop, and word spread through the town,
    That he was a true ZEALOT and the shop was tagged renowned…
    The customers did HOUND him for his special sandwich spread,
    That spiced up all his sandwiches…no matter what the bread
    The other shops now deemed UNFIT, their business had turned cold…
    Success achieved…and they def welcomed him INTO THE FOLD! 🥖

  3. It’s been raining crazy in Cally. Sweet. Cold and wet is not usually our life but it is now! IM happy to see water again. Yay!!!
    OK J today. Always fun.
    See ya all tomorrow, eh?

  4. Happy Friday ! It’s the weekend ! The first 4 words were easy , but the last one , ZEALOT , was very uncompromising ! Do I ‘sound’ like a HOUND ? And I’m proud to have HOAGIE from Muskoagie (lol) ! The inexperienced poker player should’ve admitted he was UNFIT to go against the poker sharks ! The jumble was there for me , I just had to rearrange the letters once I got FOLD , I tried the word INTO , but that left me ‘out’ of the INTO , then THE were the only 3 letters left , so 🎵 you got to know when to hold ‘em . Know when to fold ‘em . Know when to walk away , know when to run 🎵 have a great weekend everyone !!

  5. Had to scramble around and scratch my head a little to see “HOAGIE” and “ZEALOT”, a couple of words that I haven’t used lately…but after I conquered those, solution came fairly easily when I was pretty sure “the” could be middle word in the solution. Anyhow, a good weekend wish for all from South Georgia!!

  6. 💸 When you’re looking some poker to play,
    And the game’s an established mainstay…
    Make sure you’re up to snuff,
    Or things could turn quite rough…
    And the night you’ll do nothing but pay! 💸

    🃏 Looks like David was the sitting duck,
    When hand after hand he did chuck…
    The experts reeled him in,
    He’s no reason to grin…
    ‘Cause in poker you need more than mere luck! 🃏

    🤷🏻‍♂️ Jeff and David? Yes, the best of friends,
    But with poker…the friendship suspends…
    Here Jeff “draws’ from a deck,
    And to David…”The heck…
    Winning’s the only means to the end”! 🤷🏻‍♂️

  7. Good morning. I got the words fairly easy but wasn’t completely sure I had the two bigger words correct until I double checked. Now with renewed confidence, I slam dunked the cartoon answer. Take care.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Here’s to the confidence! Have a good one…and stay safe out there…🃏🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. This Jumble is seriously cooked! I came up with FIND THE LOOT, which is what I feel poker players do, is to get hands and find plays that will help them win big. I investigated with an anagram tool and then found FIND THE TOOL. Maybe the other players were helping him use a computer program on his iPhone called Best Poker Play Tool (BPPT). Now I look up the answer wondering which one of these was the intended solution and find it is neither of these, but instead is INTO THE FOLD! That is THREE plausible answers. There are several other not as good solutions as well, including TOLD THE INFO. These solutions all seem to include THE; the best I could find without that article is FELT TOO HIND. But nevertheless feel there are too many solutions to this Jumble.

      • To me, FIND THE LOOT and FIND THE TOOL all indicate that this poker club wants to help the newcomer win. INTO THE FOLD implies they want to make him lose. Folding a hand means losing. It seems that’s not a good way of welcoming a guest.

  9. Kind of a half blind solve for me today! First 2 words came easily, then the cartoon answer, then backed into Hoagie and Zealot. Which is a good thing, because I probably would have spent a lot more time deciphering those! Have a Happy Weekend! 😊

  10. Hi Everyone – I also backed into Hoagie. I’m not sure I would have ever gotten that word without the answer.

  11. Hoagie, is that a word used everywhere in the USA? Sounds like a New York type of word.

    So you’re a poker player I’m told?
    Welcome, our group is pure gold
    In a lightning-fast swoop
    Your money we’ll scoop
    So hold on to that padded billfold!

    • In NY we refer to a large sandwich as a hero. Hoagie is used mostly in PA and parts of NJ. 🃏🙋🏻‍♀️

  12. Yep! From PA! I can attest ✋to the fact that this is definitely Hoagie country! 😁 Sometimes I’ll hear someone slip and say “Sub”! 🤨….😆😆😆!!!

  13. Oh my goodness I’m in Shadow Land today as I too came up with Find the Loot. I’m not a card player but should have known “fold”. No Hoagies or Heros here. We refer to large sandwiches as Subs. There’s a shop in our neighborhood called, Mr. Submarine. I loved the title of the book by Alice Childress: “A Hero Ain’t Nothing But a Sandwich”. Wishing all of you a good day.

  14. Goodness Gracious….there is a word out there some Jumblers seem to gloss over…and that’s CONTEXT. Seems like INTO THE FOLD is very representative of what the top three poker players are conveying to others….they are going to have to FOLD. And the poker group is happy to add to their group by ADDING TO THEIR FOLD,

    • And THAT, Sir…is how we play the Jumble!! I often think I write my post up for nothing…seems like no one reads it…🤷🏻‍♀️ Thanks Terry…I spent so much time shaking my head today…that I brought on a vertigo attack! Enjoy your day, Terry…you just made mine! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️
