  1. Good Morning, Everyone 👬🏻 TWIN CHAGRIN? 👬🏻

    🎶 If I could READ YOUR MIND, love…What a tale your thoughts could tell…Just like a paperback novel…The kind the drugstore sells…🎶 “If You Could Read My Mind” – Gordon Lightfoot 1970 https://tinyurl.com/47wuyws9

    👬🏻If this here pair of brothers were ever asked to WAIVE,
    Their “rights” to one another…I’m sure that Dan and Dave…
    Won’t entertain the NOTION, these kids are way too close,
    They think alike, they speak alike…even when they’re verbose…
    (So PIGLET? I don’t think so…where would it even fit?
    We’re talking about brothers here…maybe another skit)…
    The ICING on the cake here though? It’s something that Jeff gives…
    I knew the ball would say “Jumble”…guess I’m “IN-TWO-ITIVE”!👬🏻

    Just as yesterday, when we saw a favorite familiar number puzzle, featuring twins to boot, today we’re TALKING the SAME thing…Another favorite theme – a puzzle about twins – which we’ve come to know and love…And as any seasoned Jumble aficionado knows, Twins have definitely played DOUBLE duty here on our Jumble pages…we’ve seen them so often that by now they’ve become like FAMILY…

    Our words…More old favorites…but today? More new anagrams! And they were all easily THOUGHT of…The solve? Between the dialogue, “always THINK the same thing”, the question “KNEW what each other was THINKING”, Dan and Dave both putting TWO “scissor” fingers https://tinyurl.com/yc6ubdcx forward, and those quotation marks? You needn’t be “IN-TWO-ITIVE” to get this one…This one was a slam dunk!

    So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a good one…Be well, stay safe…and here’s hoping you all 🎶Double Your Pleasure🎶* today…👬🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 👩🏻‍🍳 Feeling INTUITIVE, she had the NOTION to ‘WAIVE’ the directions on how to prepare the ICING for the PIGLET cake…👩🏻‍🍳

    🐐 She took the kids to visit the local petting zoo,
    They saw the ducks and baby lambs…there was a PIGLET too…
    Deciding that she’d ‘WAIVE’ the goats, since her son had a NOTION
    That they might drool, caused her daughter to start a big commotion
    The ICING on the cake though…giving truth to learn and live…
    The goats did drool…which I guess proved her son’s INTUITIVE! 🐐

  3. The words started out good , then I oinked on PIGLET. Then I had a NOTION that the last word was not so easy also , so I gave it a WAIVE goodby ! So to put the ICING on the cake , the jumble had 5 vowels in it and it left me not looking or thinking like a twin ! So I hope the weather doesn’t get too cold in your area . We’ll be in the mid 30’s and 40’s with sunshine ! Have a great weekend !!

  4. Good morning. I was in the same boat almost as Jim. I failed on Waive and Notion. I had intoon and was surprised when I checked that it came up with notion. After awhile and coming up empty I decided to move on. Thank goodness we start all over again tomorrow. Until then take care.

  5. Another good one! I knew that the first two parts had to be “in – two” leaving the last part easy to unjumble. Piglet took the longest to figure out.

  6. 🎄 FYI: An early Christmas gift for Jumble players! 84 NEW PUZZLES have been added to the JUST JUMBLE APP today! Be sure to take advantage of the update and NYOJE! 🎄🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. A successful solve today,both the anagrams and cartoon,which was surprising,given the cartoon solution being in quotes.But being the proud grandfather to 7 yr old twins,Kate and Jane,I couldn’t let them down.

  8. 👬🏻 The bond that twin brothers hold dear,
    To others becomes very clear…
    Their thoughts seem to blend,
    They’re both means to an end…
    Telepathy is what they share! 👬🏻

    • Good limerick Angela! With holidays starting now I’ll have a bit more time in the morning to come up with a limerick a day.
      My sons are fraternal twins and although I can’t say I was ever aware of any telepathy between them, they do have the same nutty sense of humour and a way with words that is uncannily similar.

  9. Good one this morning. Paused briefly at “waive” but other than that things fell nicely into place. Figured that “two” would be part of the cartoon answer so the rest was a given. Hope all of you have a good day.

    • I two enjoyed today’s J, Betty. I had some pauses at waive and notion but also so the two and got the solution with all the twin talk. Maybe the next J will be about triplets, eh?

  10. Easy words today, but got stuck on the cartoon, because the online version by the Chicago Tribune showed the answer as “_ _ – _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _”. They left out the second hyphen after the word TWO in the solution (IN-TWO-ITIVE). That threw me off. So, I will blame my confusion on the Chicago Tribune. 🙂 But I still get a paper copy of the newspaper delivered each day, and when I opened it up and saw the extra hyphen, it was an easy solve! Have a great weekend!

    • A few people mentioned that to me Brad…which prompted me to look, and then I saw it myself. And I agree, with out the hyphen emphasizing the TWO, it would make it a much harder solve. The solve itself appeared once before a few years back, and the hyphens were correctly placed then…Wishing you a great weekend too. 👬🏻🙋🏻‍♀️
