  1. Good Morning, Everyone..I hope this finds you well…

    🎶 I’m wild again…beguiled again…A simpering, whimpering child again…BEWITCHED, bothered and bewildered am I…🎶 “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered” – Rod Stewart & Cher 2003 https://tinyurl.com/mry4cpnx
    🧙🏻‍♀️With double, double, toil and trouble, we find a Sorcerer here,
    He’ll mix us up a potion, PINCH of this …and a sow’s ear!
    A quick look at our cartoon shows the lad with him entranced,
    The wand that looks so LAVISH, he’s giving more than a GLANCE!
    But our theme’s with the Sorcerer who has his mind’s gears grinding…
    So hold the GLAND and eye of newt…for this book is SPELLBINDING! 🧙🏻‍♂️

    So…For all of us music lovers out there, too bad we opened with 🎶 “I Put a SPELL On You” 🎶 back on the 12th…it would have really fit the bill here today…but hey, that’s show biz…

    Our words…Once again, all ones that David’s COOKED up before, but today? All fresh anagrams to STIR THE POT! But they were easily SPELLed out. And the solve? With: 1 – Sorcerers put SPELLs on people, 2 – a book has a BINDING, 3 – words in a book are SPELLed, 4 – the dialogue, with both of them saying they “can’t look away” (Spellbound), 5- both the book and the wand mesmerizing both our characters, and 6 – the word “incantations” https://tinyurl.com/m58mccdb in our question? Let’s face it, Folks…no matter how you toss it, this one was handed to us on a silver platter…SPELLBINDING for the win!

    The Gems? A real plethora today…Seriously, there’s a lot. And I’m going to try to put a SPELL, I mean a spin on it all…Starting at back, a small chest, a jar filled with eyeballs, another holding either various intestines or serpents. The sorcerer’s hat…with its crescent moon, shooting star, full moon, tiny star and sun symbols. The requisite mortar and pestle; the mythical Phoenix, (or a raven)?..(which with the look on its face I’m dubbing it a little something for the gamers out there, the “Angry Bird” https://tinyurl.com/yfhcxref ), here whimsically being used as a BOOK rest; that “electrifying” wand that’s DRAWING the Sorcerer’s assistant right in… and what I think are the best two. Number 1- The book. It depicts a lightning bolt and a stopwatch on its BINDing, which I think may be another gaming shout-out. The video game,“Wizard of Legend” https://tinyurl.com/2p8t7j6z has 312 relics, and these are two of them. …And the book’s title? “Magic in a Minute”…Note this taken from Jeff’s Wikipedia page… “He worked with Las Vegas magician Mac King to create and market Mac King’s “Magic in a Minute” line of children’s promotions, toys, magic tricks, videos, books, and events.” …And number 2 – The assistant. There may not be a forehead scar, but doesn’t he put you in mind of Harry Potter… https://tinyurl.com/2p9chvyu who was single-handedly responsible for bringing sorcery right into our own backyards? It’s a thought…Phew!…A plethora, as I said. And it wasn’t easy SPELLing it all out, but I think it was worth it…So, if you’re still with me after all this, WITCH did you find the most amusing?

    And…There you have it, Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and interestingly, I’ve been called a Literal Sorcerer…I do a lot of SPELLchecking…(though I still manage to come up short here and there. Unfortunately I’m no MAGICIAN)…🧙🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🙆🏻‍♀️ Her BLAND attitude quickly faded, as she took a GLANCE around the LAVISH, SPELLBINDING setting…and felt the need to PINCH herself at the wonder of it all…🙆🏻‍♀️

    🥣 The stew tasted a little BLAND, she turned and took a GLANCE,
    To see if there were spices she could use by any chance,
    She found basil and garlic salt, and used a PINCH or two,
    It def won’t turn out LAVISH…but for now will have to do
    She wondered if the group was one to indulge in fault-finding…
    ‘Cause there’s no way that this stew could turn out to be SPELLBINDING!🥣

  3. Enjoyed this one, especially the long cartoon answer. LAVISH was the most difficult anagram for me. The cartoon answer took a while because of the number of letters. Overall a good one!

  4. Everyone should have safe, affordable medicines with transparent prices” – Mark Cuban. https://tinyurl.com/2fw2aayj
    A major, major Shout Out to Mark Cuban. I always liked the guy, but now the respect level has risen to the top of the charts. Tip of the cap for sure. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Another fun cartoon today. Got a blind solve…first tried ENCHANTING…but it didn’t have enough letters. Then came upon SPELLBINDING. For some reason both GLANCE AND LAVISH gave me trouble, and I had to back into those words after figuring out SPELLBINDING. Thanks, Angela, for pointing out the many gems. It is also NATIONAL FRUITCAKE TOSS DAY. I suppose its the day you toss out the fruitcake you got for Christmas but didn’t eat?! Or you compete to see who can hurl it the farthest! Have a good weekend!

    • You’re welcome, Brad. It was like a treasure hunt! And wishing you a good weekend too. 🧙🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Yes Angela, the wizard has a full house of magician supplies!

    Is this Merlin the Magician portrayed?
    He’s really got it made
    He’ll have them in thrall
    In no time at all
    With all his tricks of the trade!

  7. The book was SPELLBINDING, but the cartoon says that both the sorcerer and the apprentice’s lips were moving a lot with their jabbering, so maybe they combined their lips with some LIPSBLENDING, or if they thalk lithe this, maybe LISPBLENDING. What kind of elixirs do they have? Maybe some SPELLBINDGIN. In any case, the book could have been expensive, so maybe the sorcerer will face a SPENDING BILL soon.

  8. Good morning. First off thank you Angela for that duo song. First time hearing it, it was a treat. Had no trouble with the words and almost a blind solve. I had spellbounding, one letter to much. After looking at the letters I realized it was spellbinding. Close but no cigar. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. You’re welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I LOVE what they’ve done with the lyrics…Sad that we lost another officer last night. I just received a notice that the mayor has ordered all flags lowered to half staff…I had already done so with mine out of respect this morning. It’s gotten insane out there. Be well, and stay safe…🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. LAVISH was the only word that wasn’t an instant solve. For the answer, all those letters looked intimidating. However, I found ING. With the letters left, I guessed PILLBENDINGS. It took a second to reattach it to SPELLBINDING. Fun one and easier than it looked.

  10. Like others, I had to back into Lavish. My first thought for the anagram was Saliva.
    Lots of wonderful detail from Jeff and another clever answer from David.
    Wishing all a fun weekend.

  11. 🔥 Double double, and toil and trouble,
    Fires burning and cauldrons that bubble…
    And then toes of a toad,
    Eyes of newt by the load….
    That may or may not lead to trouble! 🔥

    🧙🏻‍♂️With a sorcerer who’s so engrossed,
    And a young lad who’s no way verbose…
    Will a potion be made?
    Not today, I’m afraid…
    For the Wizard it’s reading foremost! 🧙🏻‍♂️

    📘 Book of magic and reading to do,
    The result will be many a brew…
    And we’re privy to watch,
    This Wizard who’s top notch…
    Can’t help wonder what now will ensue! 📘

  12. Really cute puzzle this morning. Loved all the detail in Jeff’s drawing. All the anagrams and cartoon answer fell nicely into place today. Wishing all of you a magical day.

  13. Little late start today ! The scourcer and the other both had a spell on ! The wand and the book ! Then it was binding ! I thought of spell as In magic first and after I took those letters out binding made it SPELLBINDING ! It was a good Saturday jumble ! After today we got snow through Wednesday ! I just think it’s “ Snow – Good “ well let’s all try to have a warm day ! “ Snow – kidding !
