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

    🎶 DAY out – DAY in…I needn’t tell you how my days begin…🎶 “Day In, Day Out” – Mr Frank Sinatra circa 1950s https://tinyurl.com/bddc5ktz
    📆 Our George was def no COWARD, he led our men through war,
    As AGENT of our country he brought honor to our shore…
    So honoring his birthday was a PAYOUT well-deserved,
    And as an ELDER statesman it was meant to be observed…
    First President he was for us, so he def paved the way..
    The 1880s brought us Washington’s “PRECEDENT”DAY! 📆

    Sometimes I’m amazed at what I come across Googling things for the Jumble. The latest bits of knowledge? Two things…1 – When the act was passed changing the observance of Washington’s Birthday from February 22nd to the third Monday of February, it ironically guaranteed that the holiday would never again be celebrated on his actual birthday…since the third Monday of February will never fall any later than February 21st! And 2- Neither Congress nor Nixon ever stipulated that the name of the holiday observed as Washington‘s birthday be changed to “President’s Day” 💫 The More You Know💫…

    …But what I can DECLARE as knowing is that we’ve never seen any of today’s anagrams before…And it was just YAUPTO that caused me of the Early Birds to blink. The solve? It’s all there in the dialogue and the words “Honoring” and “BIRTH” (not mentioning DAY) in the question…The man at left, who may be Senator Stephen Wallace Dorsey, is heard using the words “beginning” and “recognizing” = Setting PRECEDENT… https://tinyurl.com/y839h77j And the plot “unthickens” more by him mentioning not only Lincoln (which is not only witty, but a HUGE hint), but by him telling President Rutherford B Hayes that he’s one of the “others in the future”…And Hayes replying “It’s a START”…seals the deal! The honoring created a “PRECEDENT” DAY! A clever play on the term “President’s Day,” https://tinyurl.com/ycksy9hj which America celebrates today…And we’ve another celebration of David’s wit!

    And as far as our cartoon goes…The inkwell and quill 🪶being used by President Hayes lend a nice touch to the period PEACE…There’s a banner under the profile of George, but all I can seem to make out is the possibility of the first word being Declaration. The rest, as well as the body of the document, is illegible, except for noting the name George Washington. …And that’s all she wrote…

    So…There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…And even though the story of George throwing a silver dollar across the Potomac doesn’t hold water…it especially wouldn’t ring true today…A dollar just doesn’t go as far as it used to…📆🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤷🏻‍♂️ It was a PRECEDENT DAY, when he as the ELDER AGENT took the PAYOUT and was called a COWARD…🤷🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♂️“I’m no COWARD”, said the AGENT, “nix the PAYOUT, it’s a crime,
    I would think since I’m the ELDER you’d be giving me more time…
    It’s come down to brass tacks…but if this is how you choose to play…
    Then truly what we’ll have here is a new PRECEDENT DAY”…🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. 🇺🇸 While a Holiday for years was spent,
    Honoring George, our first President…
    Came the time it was changed,
    Holiday rearranged…
    Three day weekends…more people content! 🇺🇸

    📜 President Hayes chose our George’s birthday,
    To be celebrated as holiday…
    He enacted a law,
    Honoring him for sure…
    And for years that’s just how it would stay…📜

    📆 1879…commemorate,
    Birth of Washington…now legal date…
    And we honored our George,
    (Learned about Valley Forge)…
    First of Presidents to celebrate! 📆

  4. Good morning ! Start of the week Monday ! The anagrams were there for us ! I was a COWARD on that one , but Suzie got it , so I didn’t have to PAYOUT ! I wish we could’ve talked to an AGENT for the jumble , Even though I’m the ELDER , I couldn’t get it , but suzie thought and asked , is DAY the three letter word ? I said yes ! She looked at the rest of the letters then said “ Presidents Day” then we saw PRECEDENT , a little play on words ! Good job ! Everyone have a great Monday, start of the week !!!

  5. A pretty easy Monday and start to the week. Almost got stuck on PAYOUT, until I remembered that anytime there is in O, U, and T, to look for a word with “OUT” in it. Having a long word in the cartoon answer can be intimidating…but like Jim, I figured DAY must be in the answer, and then PRECEDENT popped out. Nice pun. Have a HAPPY PRECEDENT’S DAY!

  6. There is no Precedent (to)Day for how fast the puzzle came to me. As an Elder player, I can’t be a Coward about admitting my mistakes but I might need an Agent to get me a Payout if the Jumble ever goes pro. I don’t recall that Sinatra song, Angela. So I am going with the standard, “Night and Day,” the Sinatra version of course. “Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom-tom.” Enjoy the day off if you have it. Not me, but you enjoy!

  7. Like other early morning Jumblers, thought DAY must be second word…but what could that first word be?? Surely not PRESIDENT day, needing an S. Didn’t stay around long enough to find out and speedily unscrambled anagrams (pausing a moment or two over AGENT) to find the clever puzzle answer. Thanks for wonderful song…..your song note said 1945 but the album said 1959…It really does sound like one of those mid-50’s soundtracks. Will hum today and play on the piano, too. Thanks for all the history trivia, Angela. Great stuff. Have a great Monday

    • Good Morning, Terry. You’ve got me thinking…He recorded it a few times, and yes, you’re right, it was on the ‘59 album “Come Dance With Me”… so now I’m not sure where I got that ‘45 from! 🤷🏻‍♀️ I was listening to his ‘54 rendition with Nelson Riddle…transposed numbers perhaps? Close…but no cigar! I give up! 😂 The history? This one I enjoyed…always a good day when we can learn something new, right? Glad you enjoyed it…And wishing you a great Monday too! Enjoy! 📆🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Yes, didn’t want to go out on a limb to say this, but seems very Nelson Riddle (ish) arrangement, so therefore no 1945….Although when he left Tommy Dorsey (in late 1942) he took Axel Stordahl (sp) with him and along with Billy May, was a significant threesome of arrangers of the 1950’s. Thanks. TC

        • But I didn’t go with the Riddle rendition…This one is Billy May. Look at us, dropping some prestigious names here! 😉 Terry, I wish I knew where my head was at when I put in that ‘45, but I’m at a loss…So I’m just gonna chalk it up to a typo…and go with circa 1950s! Let’s face it, no matter what year Frankie was singing…it was all good. Well, maybe there was that little blip when he must have gotten hit on the head and fell for Mia Farrow…but hey…nobody’s perfect, right? 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Good morning. Easy four words for a normal Monday but once I saw the first word in quotations on the cartoon answer I immediately went to look for the answer after a minute. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe

  9. There are so many special days
    It’s enough to create such a daze
    Every day of the year
    There’s someone to cheer
    With glory, honour and praise

  10. PAYing OUT to an ELDER AGENT is COWARDly? PRECEDENT DAY? If we have a Jumble on PRECEDENT DAY, then there might be Jumbles on Immoral Day, Indy Pennants Day, Lover Day, Hollow Bean, and Isthmus Day. Actually, to me, President’s’ Day is an annoyance. It prevents me from doing what I want to do. If ever a holiday were to be abolished, Presidents Day would be a good one to abolish. So would Columbus Day, but that could be converted into Indigenous People’s Day.
