  1. Good Morning, Everyone…. ⛪️ PERISH THE THOUGHT ⛪️

    🎶 If I had a hammer, I’d hammer in the morning…I’d hammer in the evening…All over this land …🎶 “If I Had a Hammer” – Trini Lopez 1963 https://tinyurl.com/2p8bxwp7

    ⛪️ They loved their old Church building, but we see that there’s a HITCH,
    It’s fallen into SPIRAL ruin…the parish isn’t rich…
    Repairs put off for way too long, and now they need a way…
    To save the dear old building…(and here’s where I ditch SAUTÉ)…
    Starting off with some PRIMER, a paint job needs be done,
    And God knows what comes after…(and that wasn’t just a pun)
    But congregants of this ilk…their old Church they def do cherish…
    And they will raise the money…not to let their PARISH PERISH! ⛪️

    Ok, so before we begin…I’m going to play DEVIL’s advocate (again…no pun intended), and try to FIX something before I get NAILED with a ton of comments.. SAUTÉ. No NEED to tell me. In fact, I’m going to copy and paste what I wrote about it last time…Keep in mind I’m just the messenger… “Ok. So believe me, I don’t mean to sound critical, but Sauté? Do you see that? The diacritical acute accent? Or accent aigu as it’s also known by. The little ‘ above the E? And I didn’t type that either…my iPad menufractured it automatically. But have we seen a word of this sort before? A little too risqué you say? But definitely food for thought, no? Anyway again, I definitely don’t mean to sound unappreciative. You all know that I have the utmost respect for David’s taste in words…but I’m just sayin’…Hmm…Maybe we’ll get into a little disCOURSE about it”..Yes, it was a food themed puzzle…Ok, moving on…

    Today…All old words…all new anagrams! Praise the Lord! I love new anagrams…But maybe the FIX was in, because I HAMMERed through them in no time flat…And our solve? SINce we have “CHURCH” in our question, and the dialogue RICH with “the congregation”,.. “have to close” and “save it” …PARISH and its this close 🤏🏻 to a match PERISH…fell right into PLATE…I mean place.. Can I get an AMEN??

    The Gems? There are missing pieces to three of the stained glass windows, damaged roofing tiles, siding coming loose, and what appear to be cracks in the door…But besides all that? …That’s a cemetery alongside the Church…And PRAY tell..when was the last time you saw something like that? Yep, it’s definitely an old Church…

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Be well, stay safe…and I wish you all a BLESSED day! ⛪️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • I’ve been doing jumbles for years and years and just started reading your very creative and brilliant comments.
      Don’t I spend enough time solving these jumbles – now I have to ponder your daily stuff too?

      • Good to have you as one of our readers, Steven. Thank you… and hope you enjoy whatever time you get to spend with us…Take care..⛪️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Yes, it was a surprise to see sauté but without the accent. Some French words in English manage to retain the accent, others have dropped it. We usually write employee in English instead of employée and Noel instead of Noël but sauté retains the accent. Bizarre!
      I found the word saute (jump) in the jumble but did not think it could be the answer. However there was nothing else!

    • The accent aigu is indeed the right one but you are showing a different one: the “accent grave” denoting a very different pronunciation,

  2. 🥒 🧀Needing to raise money so as not to see their PARISH PERISH, but dealing with the HITCH that most of them cooked from a PRIMER level cookbook, they were thrilled when a new family that had moved into the area, who specialized in a SPIRAL-shaped Greek cheese pie and a zucchini SAUTÉ offered their services…🧀🥒

    👨🏻‍🍳He hoped there wouldn’t be a HITCH, him learning to SAUTÉ,
    It had him in a slight SPIRAL, his meats were looking gray…
    He knew it was a PRIMER course…but since this one specific dish…
    Was being served at Church…he’d dread making his PARISH PERISH! 👨🏻‍🍳

  3. It’s Friday ! I loved todays jumble ! The anagrams were smooth . I did go round and round with SPIRAL , but then got it ! The jumble was a beautiful play on words . After I wrote PARISH down HISEPR was left but wasn’t too sure if that’s how you spelled it PERISH ! When I checked it I said , man that one tied me in a knot ……” not “ anyway I enjoyed the jumble and look forward to the weekend ! I got my sister Suz to jump on board with our comments ! Welcome Suz !!

      • Before you “saute” me, I better “hitch” my mind to getting these puzzles so my little brother will be proud ! He’s getting to be an expert – you go Jim – I only hope I can “spiral” up to be as “Good” as you ! Thanks for introducing me to “Jumble Mania ” !

  4. They didn’t want to see their PARISH PERISH. Another possible answer is PARISH RESHIP, as though you could order a church building through Amazon, and if it doesn’t come maybe they could RESHIP it. And where did this take place? They were PERHAPS IRISH, so maybe it was in Ireland. But you could make a case for it being in France; they did not want their PARISH to PERISH in PARIS. And the whole idea of the parish perishing because the building needed repairs is wrong anyway. A church or congregation is the group of people that attend the church, not the building. But the building sometimes does need repair. The church I go to is contemplating replacing the roof.

  5. Just as clever as clever can be this morning….I went down a wrong rabbit hole, thinking TITHE might be a part of it. I really like it when they use Homophones in the answer (at least I think that’s the correct word). Easy anagrams today, which helped put the puzzle together. Still cold here in upper 20’s, but warming trend coming this way. See you Saturday

  6. I noticed that there were a lot of double letters. Splitting them into two groups helped me find the answer. Love the  song, which I enjoyed singing as a child. I was listening to the original by The Weavers, which has the words “love between all of my brothers,”instead of the later version, “love between my brothers and my sisters.” Wishing all a good day.

  7. Weekly collection doesn’t go very far
    They’ll have to raid their savings jar
    It’s the usual story
    Return the church to its glory
    We’ll see who the stalwarts are!

    A little late today with my OFFERING but more snow had to be shovelled earlier if I’m to be able to leave my house today!

    Reminds me of the days my dad, a civil engineer, was implored by the minister to inspect the church roof for leaks – and there many!!

  8. Good morning. My bad streak continues. I had to look up Sauté but I was able to get the answer on the cartoon without much trouble. Skip the hammer and take a brush, I’m sure the church would look much better. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  9. ⛪️ When it comes time to passing that plate,
    There are some we can label cheapskate…
    But the “faithful’ come through,
    (There’s a church pun for you)!
    And the needs of the Church? It’s au fait! ⛪️

    💸 With repairs it’s much better to act,
    Putting things off just proves the old fact…
    Time won’t make it get better,
    Leaking roof? Def gets wetter…
    And eventually you’ll just get sacked! 💸

    🤷🏻‍♀️ Owning property…is it a blessing?
    Lots of maintenance … if we’re confessing…
    But we take it in stride,
    Hoping things will subside…
    ‘Cause there’s always something needs addressing! 🤷🏻‍♀️

  10. Very clever puzzle this morning. Like Caroline, I separated out all the double letters and was left with only the e and the a so the cartoon answer was easy. Happy Friday to all!

  11. Sauté looked like astute at first, but the other anagrams were a quick solve as was the cartoon,At first I thought the spire would spiral, but realized spiral had been used in the Jumble. In which case I came up w the parish could perish solution.

  12. Took me a long time to solve the anagrams, so I didn’t start the cartoon until I got home from work. And once again, my 12 year old looked at the puzzle and said “PARISH PERISH”. I’m glad I can HITCH my wagon to his brain, otherwise I would be caught in a SPIRAL. Freezing day in Texas today…but probably not compared to the rest of the country! Hope everyone is staying warm! Have a good weekend!
