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

    🎶 Oh, Puff the Magic Dragon lived by the sea…And frolicked in the autumn MIST in a land called Honah Lee…🎶 “Puff The Magic Dragon” – Peter, Paul & Mary 1963 https://tinyurl.com/2p8aawkf

    🐉 The LOCALE, the Scottish Highlands, the ORIGIN of the tale,
    About the so-called monster that for so long has prevailed…
    The theories they did TUSSLE, from one town to the next,
    So much SPOKEN over the years, yet people still perplexed…
    Are these two here EXEMPT from it…are they there on a lark?
    (And SMOOCH will take a pass because I’m left out in the dark)…
    The bottom line, the play on words from our illustrious funster?
    Some might think it’s just cheesy that we pun the LOCH NESS “MUENSTER” 🐉

    The LOCH NESS MONSTER… https://tinyurl.com/2p9ab364 our theme this morning….It’s NESSIEsary to know that..

    So, today’s puzzle brings us four new anagrams, with LACLEO from 2015 and MEETXP from 2020 our only repeats. Great anagrams, but I got through them all SCOT-free…The solve? Scottish Highlands, the Loch Ness MONSTER made of cheese, featured in the window? The dialogue…”You don’t see that every day”?…Nothing ELUSIVE here, Folks…It’s a LOCH! The Cheese Shop sold…LOCH NESS “MUENSTER”! BRIElliant!

    Our cartoon? Today, our vacationing couple, touring the Scottish Highlands, find this quaint little Cheese Shop, called…LEGEN – wait for it – DAIRY Cheeses! Not just Legendary…but LegenDAIRY! The wit, the whimsy…the classic line from “How I Met Your Mother”. https://tinyurl.com/4e5xtf6x More brilliance! But the BIG surprise of this TAIL today? No, not the crackers surrounding the cheese CREATUREation on the plate…Look real closely way out on the water of the LOCH NESS. FOLKs, LORE has it that you might see Nessie…And today, there she is! Living life SWIMmingly, probably just waiting to dine on some FISH and SHIPS!

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and we’ve managed to put another week’s worth of Jumbles under LOCH and key! 🐉🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤷🏻‍♀️ EXEMPT from attending the meetings, and not looking to get into a TUSSLE with the Community Board, she still needed to know the ORIGIN of the LOCH NESS MONSTER tale being SPOKEN about in their LOCALE, so she wondered if trying to SMOOCH up to one of the bigwigs would help…🤷🏻‍♀️

    💋With the Kissing Booth’s LOCALE finally decided upon,
    And those to be EXEMPT now all packed up and gone…
    The ORIGIN of such a way to try and raise some dough,
    Get a SMOOCH and pay a dollar…but is it apropos?
    While SPOKEN of beforehand, some questions still remained,
    Could there be a slight TUSSLE?…And would some people abstain?
    Would money spent on kisses go well with their main sponsor?
    Or should they have stuck with the booth named for the LOCH NESS MONSTER? 💋

  3. Had a hard time with the jumble ! The words for a Sunday were all a Funday ! After I saw the quotation marks for ‘play on words’ I’m thinking ok not snake or serpent , but maybe monster , then cause I like cheese , Muenster was there and the other two were Loch Ness . I have to leave everyone with this “ play on words “ 🎵 Sweet dreams are made of cheese . Who am I to Diss A Brie ? I cheddar the world and Feta cheese ! Everybody’s looking for Stilton ! 🎵 …. ……. So everyone, let’s not be cheesy and have a Funday Sunday !!!!

      • Forgot to say , I liked your song choice ! I’m still singing it ! How’d you like my play on words ? Have a good one !

        • Tks, Jim. The play on words? TBT? I’ve used it here a few times in past puzzles…so…🤷🏻‍♀️ Hope you have a GOUDA one too! 🧀🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. A fun Sunday Blind Solve….everything kind of spelled out for the taking. Twas about cheese and there was Nessie shaped into a cheese ball right on the plate. Struggled with anagrams a little bit but all was fine and dandy. Purists might disagree on whether Muenster comes from that part of the world, but still makes for a clever Sunday Jumble.

    • Yes, a very clever one, Terry. Easy, but definitely clever. Have a good one…🧀🙋🏻‍♀️

      • The puzzle isn’t about Münster cheese. And the puzzle doesn’t refer to any origin of the cheese itself…The word MUENSTER is used solely for the purpose of making the pun to Loch Ness. And besides, MUENSTER Cheese is American! https://tinyurl.com/2p8wmv4p No pun intended! It’s a great play on words! 🧀🙋🏻‍♀️

        • That article proves my point: The USA Muenster imitates German immigrants’ cheese introduced in the USA.

          • But it’s not relevant to the puzzle! Germany, America, whatever…it doesn’t come into play…So why is it getting your GOAT…CHEESE, can’t you just enjoy the puzzle? 🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Fun and creative Sunday Jumble. Perfect song, Angela. I always thought it was about drugs, but seems like I was wrong all along according to Peter Yarrow. I wondered why there was a snake on the cheese until I googled Scottish Highlands and discovered they are known as the home of the Loch Ness Monster…which made the cartoon solution a snap. “Legendairy Cheeses”…very cute. Happy National Pie Day! Have a great Sunday!

    • Tks, Brad. I always think of “Puff” when I hear Loch Ness Monster. It’s such a bittersweet song. And the LegenDAIRY Cheeses? I loved the wit and whimsy of it! Definitely an easy solve, as long as you knew about Loch Ness…Very clever all around…Happy Nat’l Pie Day to you too, Brad…Enjoy! 🐉🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Hi All – Because I had no idea what was in the display case, I also turned to Google. Without this research, I don’t think I’d have gotten the answer. The words were a challenge too, and I ended up backing into Locale and Exempt. Another outstanding Jumble, and great catch, Angela, on finding the monster.

  7. What a great jumble answer, so creative!! Really enjoyed figuring it out, kept thinking of a snake at first 🤔

    • I agree, Susan…definitely a great puzzle today! Creativity all around! 🐉🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Well, in honour of the Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-96) whose birthday we celebrate on January 25, here’s a limerick in Scots vernacular. However Burns was a Lowlander so I don’t think he ever got as far as Loch Ness.

    Och aye, ye’ve a’ heard o’ Loch Ness
    Where the tourists a’ love tae press
    But though they keek with their e’en (look with their eyes)
    No’ many ha’e seen
    Even a glimpse o’ the monster – much less!

    But makin’ her likeness in cheese?
    Aye, that’s one way tae please
    A’ the tourists whae’s keen
    Tae say that they’ve been
    And spent a’ their hard-earned bawbees!

    (a bawbee is an old Scots word for a small coin, about sixpence in old money. (You need a lot of bawbees to buy a decent cheese these days!)

    • You got that right, Helen. We need a ton of bawbees these days. Ticket prices? It’s CULTURE shock! 🧀🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks Betty. I have a ceramic Nessie and a tartan Nessie, just two of the many very cheesy souvenir items for sale in Scotland.
        I spent much of my childhood in Burns’ country in the Scottish lowlands and have always been fascinated by his poetry.
        Now if only Nessie would make an appearance to lure tourists back to Scotland (where covid has destroyed so much), that would be a real feta (sorry, that should be feat.)

    • Good Morning, Professor. The “Scottish Highlands” = Loch Ness, and the “Cheese” sculpture of Nessie in the window = Muenster were the clues to the solve. The monster itself wasn’t particularly key… it’s just an added little gem of Jeff’s whimsy, as he does with his sinking sailboat. It really was a BRIEze! 🧀🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Good morning. Got the words with a minimum of trouble but fell short on the cartoon answer. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  10. Fun puzzle this morning. I too was wondering about the snake but when I saw “Legendary Cheese” the cartoon answer was a “Brie”ze . Happy Sunday to all.

    • LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻 Indeed! What I just told the Professor! And a Happy Sunday to you too, Betty! 🧀🙋🏻‍♀️
