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

    🎶 MONEY, MONEY, MONEY…must be FUNNY…In a rich man’s world…Money, money, money, always sunny….In a rich man’s world…🎶 “Money, Money, Money” – Abba 1976 https://tinyurl.com/y9x38t9r

    💵 The year was 1969 and the big bill was expunged,
    No longer would we grab for it, (not many though could LUNGE)…
    We’re talking ‘bout big money here, a thousand dollar bill,
    And how DIVINE to have one now…it’s worth coffers would fill…
    It comes up in some TRIVIA games…when was the last one made,
    You def look mighty FANCY, if you know it…accolades
    But it went by the wayside, that was it, no dilly-dally…
    The bill worth that old grand?…Well it just took its GRAND FINALE! 💵

    Ok, here’s the deal…Our puzzle today isn’t on the MONEY. It RAREly happens, but today it has. The last $1000 bills weren’t printed in 1969, they had ceased to be printed around 1945-46, but they continued to be in circulation. They were recalled/discontinued in 1969, which of course just doesn’t ADD up here…But it’s an understandable mistake I suppose, or maybe it’s just a misPRINT…Either way, I don’t want to sell you a false BILL of goods, so I’m just letting you know. There’s a lot of articles PRINTED about it, and here’s a good one. https://tinyurl.com/2p839tmd As for my rhyme? I played it SAFE, and stayed pretty neutral…but rest assured, it didn’t lead me astray…I pride myself on feeling that with me you always get what you PAY for…And that Folks, you can take to the BANK…

    So…Our anagrams today? Brand new, freshly PRINTED…and quickly deciphered. And our solve? I think we can COUNT this as one of our easiest ones to DATE….

    Ok. The Treasury Department’s Bureau of Engraving & Printing…And since we’re working with 1969…CHECK out those haircuts…We see two big-wigs, (no pun intended), looking at the FINAL batch of $1000 bills. The man at left, sporting a tie emblazoned with dollar signs, holds one aloft…taken from the pile of freshly PRINTED ones on the table…while the man at right, (who looks very familiar, don’t you think)?…evoking the name of Grover Cleveland, (whose face appears on the bill), is seen raising his “Anthora” https://tinyurl.com/94jeruej paper coffee cup in a toast. And here’s another little tidbit that has me shaking my head…just where are we? It’s a NYC coffee cup! …And there are three men of lesser DENOMINATION looking on…one stating how $4000 would buy him a new car. (A little steep though for ‘69)…And off to the left we see a man scanning newly printed bills that have come hot off the presses behind him. So our solve? Since a thousand dollars is referred to as a GRAND, and the word LAST in our dialogue plus STOPPED in our question gives us FINALE…It’s a WRAP…PRINT it! ….It was a GRAND FINALE!

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one…Be well, stay safe…and I think I’m gonna FOLD…All this confusion has just about BROKEn my spirit…so I’m CASHing it in…💵🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🍺 During the GRAND FINALE of the TRIVIA contest, which centered around the FANCY, DIVINE Miss M, there was quite the commotion when someone chose to LUNGE forward to grab a beer…🍺

    👗 She tripped and it caused her to LUNGE towards all the FANCY clothes,
    Trying so hard to be DIVINE…it wasn’t what she chose…
    To some it might be TRIVIA, no trivial I mean,
    To her though…pure embarrassment…since everyone had seen
    Her outfit that she loved so much, made up of silky challis…
    Was ruined to boot…boy talk about a fashion GRAND FINALE! 👗

  3. Good thirsty-Thursday morning ! I couldn’t figure this one out 1000 times ! I thought it was looking for a presidents name and I should’ve known the word GRAND is $1000 ! But this one cost me a GRAND jumble in the FINALE ! The words were DIVINE except the second one that I had to LUNGE to get it ! The rest were FANCY fun ! To try and guess all the presidents names on US bills currency would be a great TRIVIA ! So I’ll get my lemonade on thirsty-Thursday and toast to Grover Cleveland on the $1000 bill ! Everyone have a good thirsty-Thursday !!!

      • I get it, the right answer is what is listed. My brain went to Grande, as in my StarBucks drink. Love the puzzle and thanks.

        • No thanks necessary, Michael…. You certainly weren’t alone in your thinking! Have a good night…💵🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Good morning. Back to normal. I’m in a little bit of a hurry so after getting the words without much trouble and drawing a blank on the cartoon answer I went right to the solution. It was an easy one to get to. Oh well, we have tomorrow. Until then stay well and take care.

  5. Norhing too difficult but it took 3 tries on the puzzle. Like Michael, I was noodling around with Final Grande when the correct solution smacked me in the face. There was nothing Fancy or Divine but if you Lunge for Trivia (as I do) U.S. currency now is printed in only 7 denominations. $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. That brinks to mind Pink Floyd’s “Money.” Great song, great album. Going to be 55 on the high plains today. Some fun for me coming up so I will be gone until Tuesday.

  6. Hi Everybody – Today I had one of my rare blind solves. I was interested to learn that there was once a thousand dollar bill. Last night I was  reading the instructions for mailing a check to pay taxes that I thought I’d pass along. The IRS can’t accept a single check for amounts of $100 million or more.

  7. I, too, glommed on to.FINAL being first word. And like others, was smacked on the face after seeing GRANDE…just goes to show us there’s always a couple of ways to look at something. Your song pretty spot on, Angela….and thanks for the history lesson. Especially noteworthy was your spotting 1969 car prices….yep, the standard of the day was pretty much 3 G’s tops, financed over 3 years with a $100 monthly car payment ..I remember it well !!

  8. tcapps589 said GRANDE, like maybe FINAL GRANDE. But another anagram for GRANDE is DANGER. I.e., FINAL DANGER. High-denomination bills are dangerous. You lose or misplace one and you are out $1,000. That’s why they discontinued them. There is also FINAL GARDEN, as though these bills grow in your garden. Of course we know that money doesn’t grow on trees.

  9. 💸 All this talking of bills of such size,
    And the where and the when and the whys…
    It all comes down to this,
    What once may have been bliss…
    Just proved itself not all that wise…💸

    💵 Printing money…looks easy it seems,
    After all, it’s just ream after ream…
    But of course there’s much more,
    Read the story…explore…
    (And I’m thinking of a few good memes)! 💵

    👍🏻 For a while there it was quite grand,
    And the bills travelled across our land…
    But then the printing ceased,
    No more big bills released…
    But you’re lucky if you’ve one in hand! 👍🏻

  10. I too thought the first word might be final but grande didn’t work. Once I switched the “e” it all made sense. Happy Thursday to all!

  11. For a bit of trivia, if you want to see a $1,000 bill used as part of the plot, lunge forward and watch the Divine Lauren Bacall and fancy Marilyn Monroe, in the movie “How to Marry a Millionaire.” Spoiler alert, you won’t see the bills until the end of the movie

  12. The song that I thought about on this one was “For the Love of Money” by The O’Jays…it was hot in 1973, when I was a senior in high school, I just realized that I’m getting old..but beats the alternative as they say!!

    • I always go with the first thing that pops into my head, Alan..and since I just saw “Mamma Mia” the other night…Voila! Plus I’ve already used the O’Jays song in the past…🙋🏻‍♀️

  13. My answer was FINAL DANGER, which makes use of all the letters! My thought is that anyone carrying around such a large denomination of paper currency might be at risk! 🙂
