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

    🎶 Now could I go the long way…Taking the EASY way down?…If I was wrong would you show me…Where all that I lost can be found?…🎶 “Straight Away” – Matt Kearney 2009 https://tinyurl.com/2v2nbku3

    🌊 TRULY music to a teacher’s ears when students are so quick,
    To answer any question whether or not their bailiwick…
    It’s like standing in an ATRIUM with sun that’s shining through,
    And feeling all the soft warm rays as they WHIRL over you…
    Like hearing a SONATA, and going with its flow,
    It makes a teacher very proud to see his students know…
    That what he’s spent time teaching in the end does definitely pay…
    This question ‘bout Magellan? He was answered “STRAIT” AWAY! 🌊

    I don’t think the phrase “Straight Away” https://tinyurl.com/2p8aehhj is used all that much by Americans. I have friends, who live in Ireland and England, and they use it all the time…it’s part of their everyday vernacular. They use it when referring to doing something right away, “Yes, please, I need you to do this for me, straight away”, and also as a directional reference..”There’s the car, ahead, straight away”. But I’m going to be STRAIGHT with you Folks…I myself have never spoken the words..So if the solve has you feeling a little at a loss…I’m SHORE you’re not alone…

    So, today we’re staying RIGHT on COURSE, and dealing with just one old anagram…RIHLW, from 2015. And none of our words TIDE me down… it was smooth SAILING all aCROSS. As for the solve? As I mentioned, I’m very familiar with the phrase, so I didn’t need any KELP with it…It was an automatic ANSWER for me…

    It seems we’re still doing the educational thing today. Rare that we have similarly themed puzzles two days in a row. Maybe David had his foundation https://tinyurl.com/54fcxay9 on his mind when he was drawing up these puzzles…But anyway, we see a classroom and a little boy who’s shooting STRAIGHT from the lip… He’s answering the question about Magellan before the teacher can even get the words out STRAIGHT…or before the other little boy can even raise his hand…He just blurted out…“STRAIT” AWAY…And the rest is History again today…

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one…Be well and stay safe out there…🌊🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🎶 They TRULY enjoyed the SONATA, and with the music still a WHIRL within the ATRIUM, they left STRAIGHT AWAY as soon as the concert ended…🎶

    🎶 They gathered in the ATRIUM, the buzz was all a WHIRL,
    They TRULY liked the little group, especially the young girl
    She’d written a SONATA, and today offered to play…
    It for all of the members…and she started STRAIGHT AWAY..🎶

  3. We’ll it’s Saturday ! I can barely take the cold here ! It’s in single digits and cold ! The jumble was picture perfect on STRAIT and after I saw all the letters it was very STRAIT AWAY ! Good one ! I mean the first thing that came to me before I ever saw the letters was the Strait of Magellan , so it was a good solve ! The anagrams were right there ! Everyone have a warm weekend ! Turn the heat on and enjoy !!

  4. Seems like we had another recent Jumble with a Magellan theme….and that included the word STRAIT, too. This one was very similar and no need to do a lot of thinking, so a very easy solve. I’ve solved SONATA before, especially on Sundays (I think) but today I needed to back it in for some strange reason. Warming up in central Texas so a pleasant weekend in store. Poor Angela…do you have your snow shovel at the ready?? Read about weekend Blizzard coming. And lastly, yes, I’ve used STRAIT/STRAIGHT AWAY in conversation.

  5. Blind solve today, with the obvious word “STRAIT”. My favorite cartoons are those that deal with real places or people or history, so today was great. Like Terry, I had to back into Sonata, but also Atrium. I took the “easy approach” to figure out those two words. Cold this morning in Texas…35 degrees…but nothing like what’s happening in the Northeast. Stay warm and safe!

  6. Good morning. Remembered Atrium from before but did take a little time to get Sonata. The cartoon answer was no blind solve but easy since I had the idea what it was. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  7. The tale that the cartoon is tellin’
    Is all about Ferdinand (de) Magellan
    He sailed far, he sailed wide
    Rose and ebbed with the tide
    Sailed the world on seas that were swellin’

    Facing wave after mountainous wave
    With a crew so bold and so brave
    To the south they were pulled
    But no one was fooled
    Their end…… could be a watery grave!

    In the end there was no debate
    That was THE short cut route to create
    The discovery was terrific
    Led from Atlantic to Pacific
    But navigation was far from being straight!

  8. Sailed right through the anagrams and cartoon answer this morning. It’s been another fun week. As I mentioned to Helen, above, my grandparents did say “subito” when they wanted something done right away – perhaps it’s a regional thing, Angela?? Thinking of all you folks with the cold weather and snow. Hope you are all safe and warm. Take Care.

    • Hi Betty. If by regional you mean dialect…then maybe. My family only spoke Neapolitan dialect.. I think I’ve heard the word subito, but as I mentioned to Helen, I’m not sure, especially of the context.…Neither my Parents or Grandparents spoke Italian to any of us cousins. And TBH, I can’t think well today..it’s been snowing here since 7:30 last night, and it’s showing no sign of letting up. And the winds are brutal…And I foolishly waited too long to take the vertigo meds, 🤦🏻‍♀️…so I’m whirling…no pun intended…I haven’t been able to walk a straight line all day…again, no pun intended. I’m definitely down for the count…Tk you for thinking of us, and I hope you’re taking care too. 🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I hope you’re okay again tomorrow Angela. It’s bitterly cold here too (near Lake Ontario) and even colder by the lake where I usually walk so I’ve had to abandon that idea for the day. However the sky is a brilliant blue.

      • Yes, I did mean regional dialect. My Mother’s family was from Genoa & my Father’s from Piemonte. I do know that the Northern and Southern dialects are very different. We cousins do not speak Italian either which is very typical. I’m so. sorry to hear you’re ailing, Angela. Vertigo is very unsettling. I do hope you feel better soon. I’ve seen the news reports and the East Coast looks positively awful weather wise. Stay in and stay warm. Sounds like you need a good rest. 🤗

        • We come from Ischia on my Mother’s side, and Basilicata on my Fathers. But I’m pretty sure that if you trip over a goat somewhere in Italy, and it lands you in another town, chances are they’re speaking a different dialect…at least that’s how it was years ago. The dialects are endless…The vertigo..I should have been pro-active and started taking the pills yesterday…It’s not that we didn’t have enough warning…I just didn’t think it was going to be this bad here. But the combination of the temperature flirting with zero, and the insane winds, in addition to the relentless snow…it’s a recipe for disaster! And as far as staying warm..I’ve been in bed all day..besides, we can’t get any of the doors opened…the drifts are ridiculous…Thank God we “got a guy”…😉 I’m just staying put until he gets here…no other choice! Thank you, Betty…Be well and stay safe…🙋🏻‍♀️
