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

    🎶 The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind…The answer is blowin’ in the wind…🎶 “Blowin’ in the Wind” – Bob Dylan 1963 https://tinyurl.com/2p945p2z

    💨 To us today it’s ABSURD to live without forced air,
    But back in those old golden days, the heat they had to bear…
    Today our puzzle deals with that, and I’ll OFFER you my take,
    The giveaway with this one? …It’s that water you see break…
    You have to look real closely, it’s quite HIDDEN to the eye,
    But way before electric fans, this is how people got by…
    So I’ll GRANT you all my sweat and tears…spent while I honed my craft…
    And the water that we see here? That’s the key in this ROUGH DRAFT! 💨

    Ceiling fans…Who knew they would give me such a RUN for my money… https://tinyurl.com/2hyfhp9c Ok, here’s what had me going in CIRCLES and called for the due diligence…If you look up who invented the ceiling fan, you come up with a lot of Phillip Diehl, and 1882. If you look up who invented the “rotary” ceiling fan…you still get Mr Diehl, even though he’s credited with inventing the “electric” ceiling fan, and that’s not what we’re dealing with here. But knowing that David wouldn’t just throw caution to the WIND, and not do his research, I figured this “mid 1860s” couldn’t just be a typo…so I dug a little deeper. But then I put the DUE and DUE together and noticed the water droplets in the cartoon. GRANTed, I already had the solve, that was a BREEZE, but it was the date that had me SPINNING my wheels…so to speak, because I couldn’t positively identify the men in the cartoon….But I think I finally TURNED a corner when I came across the Hunters. https://tinyurl.com/2jcvrw4k And I’m going with them. The years are still a little fuzzy, and the exact answer might still be BLOWING in the WIND, but after going AROUND in CIRCLES , it all got me so HOT under the collar…that I just called it a day. Will I go out in a BLADE of glory? Who knows…

    Phew! EXHAUSTing! Ok…words…Once again, one old anagram, FOREF, from this past June. And as I mentioned above, the solve was an AUTOMATIC one…DRAFT was way obvious, in keeping with the puzzle’s FAN theme and the man’s hand held fan causing one, plus the blueprint on the table = a DRAFT and the dialogue “messing around” =…ROUGH DRAFT. A nice SPIN on this one today…

    Jeff’s Gems? The fan’s notation of “Cool air is pressed downward” that appears on the DRAFT is a nice touch… as is the blade lying on the table. And the bead of sweat dripping from the inquiring guy’s brow is cool…Well, not exactly, but you catch my DRAFT, I mean drift…And the blazing sun can be seen peering through the window…But it’s definitely the water and the droplets SPINNING with the turbine that gets the HIGH praise here today…

    So, There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and after all this I’m not so sure I’m a CEILING FAN any more…Hopefully things will LOOK UP again in the future…💨🙋🏻‍♀️

    * I couldn’t help it..this just kept SPINNING AROUND in my head….https://tinyurl.com/4c3ef87t

  2. 🤷🏻‍♂️ He found the OFFER of a GRANT based solely on his first ROUGH DRAFT to be a little ABSURD so early in the game, so he couldn’t help but wonder if there wasn’t a HIDDEN agenda..🤷🏻‍♂️

    💡 He had a lot to OFFER, but he didn’t say a word,
    He wasn’t sure if anyone would think his plan ABSURD…
    He kept his blueprints HIDDEN, he’d GRANT no one a look,
    He’d wait to see what others had to include in the book…
    And from the looks of what he saw he thought some of them daft…
    He had a better idea…just from his very first ROUGH DRAFT! 💡

  3. Good Monday morning ! The came to me nice and easy ! The jumble required a little thinking ! I got the words Four , Hard , and then my brain needed a skulling fan to sort it out ! Well it was ROUGH DRAFT and that cooled it down ! Sunshine all day today in the mid to high 20’s , everyone have a good start to the week ! Congratulations on Cincinnati and Los Angeles “ Super Bowl “ bound !!!

  4. Pretty easy Monday morning fare, with a blind solve, though. Easy anagrams led to swift puzzle answer….and that’s all folks !!! Not a huge fan of folk music, but excellent song choice. Will have to go back and re-look at cartoon to spot those little nuances you pointed out. On to Wordle now.

  5. Good morning. Typical Monday jumble. Breezed through the first three words without even thinking but took a minute to get the fourth. Still the elusive blind solve but even that was easy once the letters were put down. Loved your extra goodies Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  6. I will Offer this puzzle came to me as easy as Grant took Richmond with no Hidden problems or Absurd entanglements. It went smooth for a Rough Draft. Angela’s mention of going around in circles brought to mind “Will it Go Round in Circles” by Billy Preston. A high temp projected for OO of 57 today. Weather dude thinks midweek snow storm will miss, too! Loving life here on the Great Plains.

  7. If you want to know where it all began
    It appears there was man with a plan
    That nice cool feeling
    Coming down from the ceiling
    Will make you a fan of the fan!

  8. I’m definitely a fan of an easy Jumble puzzle which was the case today. It was interesting to learn about the history of fans, information which I did not know. Hope all of you have a good day.
