Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…
🔘 PLAY IT, BUT COOL IT…DON’T LET IT ROUL-ETTE! 🔘
🎶 What goes up must come down…SPINNIN’ WHEEL got to go ’round..Talkin’ ’bout your troubles it’s a cryin’ sin…Ride a painted pony let the spinnin’ WHEEL spin…🎶 “Spinnin’ Wheel” – Blood, Sweat & Tears – 1968 https://tinyurl.com/yckutrmt
🔘The game of Roulette’s random…choose a number…watch ball dance,
Most LIKELY you won’t win it all, but fun to take the chance…
While some have really come out flush, to some the game’s a drug,
It’s def not for the faint of heart…you win, you lose…you SHRUG…
I’d watch drinking those “yardsticks” though…they could WEAKEN one it seems,
‘Cause drinking mixed with gambling sometimes goes to the extremes
You gamble, you can ELUDE common sense drinking too free…
But as far as winning goes here? It’s a game of just…“WHEEL” SEE! 🔘
Casinos love to reel you in, plying you with drinks..But if you’re opting for one like our girl here,… https://tinyurl.com/53sztnpk let’s hope it’s fruit punch…
Ok. Once again this morning, we’ve just one old anagram that’s come AROUND,- KAWNEE from 2018. And while none of the four gave us a run for our MONEY, they were a masterful lot. The solve? With the pill (Professional roulette balls (or pills) are made of white or ivory delrin material and are accurate to within .0001 inch) shown spinning around the roulette WHEEL, and the dialogue alluding to the ”possibility”,…it was hardly a GAME OF CHANCE here…You can BET your bottom dollar that we took this one to the BANK!
Our cartoon? Vegas …and Roulette…. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roulette And I’m sure by now all of you die-hard Jumble players recognize Jeff, (sporting a MAC KING Comedy Magic Show T-shirt), and the lovely lady Kathy. And the woman going the DISTANCE with the YARD? I think that if she’s not just a RANDOM person who struck up a conversation, then she may be their daughter, Syd. Perhaps they’ve made a trip to see Mac’s show? https://tinyurl.com/2p9au5zd Our question does mention the word “They”…But either way, it looks like Kathy’s encouraging her to go for it. Which threw me off for a moment because I never took Kathy for a gambler. Jeff? Now that’s a different story…but who knows how the BALL bounces…no pun intended. Anyway, as far as Jeff goes, he has a very odd look on his face. He’s either concentrating heavily, with his tongue sticking out, trying to wrap his head AROUND Kathy going in heavy on the black, or he’s groaning somewhat watching his daughter about to do the same…. And seeing RED! Maybe not so easily willing to watch the CHIPS fall where they may! And that would definitely explain the look! But the bottom LINE..(oh wait, that’s craps…Sorry, I was distracted by the guy shooting at the table at back)…the bottom line is…Can they win? “WHEEL” SEE!
So…There you have it Folks…Done! Have a good one. Be WHEEL, stay safe… and I’ll leave you with a little gambling TIP…While Gambling is fun, it’s really kind of like like eating pistachios. If you get a good pistachio, you want another good one. If you get a bad one, you want a good one even more…And that Folks, is gambling…in a nutshell. 🔘🙋🏻♀️
AND IN OTHER WORDS…🔠🙋🏻♀️

🧶 Wanting the orange SHRUG so badly, she wondered how LIKELY it was that her Mom would buy it for her…so she tried to WEAKEN her Mom’s resolve…but Mom proceeded to ELUDE the request by simply saying, “WE’LL SEE”…🧶
🤷🏻♂️With a SHRUG he just walked past the lamp… his indifference made her blue,
‘Cause once more it spelt “ELUDE” to her, and her resentment grew…
How LIKELY would it be that if not bought she’d find another,
And this time she’d hate to WEAKEN, if at all she had her druthers…
So deciding that she’d had enough, she thought…”I’ve my own money”…
And realized she was tired of his old played out “WE’LL SEE”! 🤷🏻♂️
Good morning ! Hump-day Wednesday ! Had fun with the jumble today ! The anagrams were there and the jumble did not ELUDE me ! We go to the casino a little more than we should , but always have a good time , with a SHRUG ! And we always have a lemonade or sprite, so we don’t WEAKEN our debt ! When I saw the cartoon I was LIKELY gonna think of 🎵 here we go round in circles , here we fly high like a bird up in the sky 🎵 but it wasn’t as good as ‘ spinning wheel ‘ ! So WHEEL SEE you all next time I bet ! Have a great Wednesday hump-day !!!
Good Morning, Jim. Wishing you a great Wednesday too…🔘🙋🏻♀️
Another Palindrome Date today…2️⃣-2️⃣3️⃣-2️⃣2️⃣, as will be all dates for the rest of the month! 🙋🏻♀️
Love this! ❤️ Did not realize until I read your post! Now I’m gonna have to re-text and tell everyone that I told yesterday! I took it one step further yesterday, saying 10:22 p.m. military time will actually be 2-22-22 22:22! Thanks for posting!
🎲 Be it poker, roulette, or dice thrown,
Comes to gambling it’s pretty well known…
A lot depends on fate
And not taking the bait…
When it looks like an easy street’s shown! 🎲
🔘 Playing roulette may seem like a breeze,
But it somewhat comes off as a tease…
Pick a number and hope,
Win or lose…slippery slope…
As the croupier calls, “Place bets please”! 🔘
🤷🏻♂️ While roulette can prove to be much fun,
Wheel and dealing…please excuse the pun…
It’s a game based on chance,
You must know in advance…
That your odds? Basically ten to one! 🤷🏻♂️
Your limericks capture the essence of the jumble Angela! Well done!
Tk you, Helen! 🔘🙋🏻♀️
🍌 Today is NATIONAL BANANA BREAD DAY…And for some reason during the lockdown, a BUNCH of people were all baking Banana Bread…Personally, I couldn’t help but wonder what the apPEEL was with all that baking? I guess it just SLIPPED by me…🤷🏻♀️ I mean I do enjoy Banana Bread…but I’m not obsessed…it’s more of a SPLIT decision…🍌🙋🏻♀️
Was a good puzzle day so far….Wordle accomplished in 4 tries, NYT Mini-Crossword done in less than a minute…and had guessed WHEEL as the first Jumble cartoon word. I think I’m on a roll….so should go back to bed and cover up !!!
Thanks for all of your early morning info, Angela. See you all tomorrow
YW, Terry. Have a good one. 🔘🙋🏻♀️
Good morning. A follow up of yesterday. Easy breezy from the words to the cartoon answer. A nice way to start the day and listen to a nice song. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.
Good Morning, Paul. You too…🔘🙋🏻♀️
Quick and easy Jumble today. It’s Likely that tomorrow’s anagrams will Elude me but I can Shrug it off because my love of the game won’t Weaken. Wheel See what that day brings. Bitter cold on the Great Plains but good weather returning next week. Always nice to start the day with some BS&T humming in my brain. Be well.
You too, OO 🔘🙋🏻♀️
Just a linguistic pet peeve here – most of you will say “weel see” for the jumble answer. I say “hweel see.” Any thoughts on that?
We’ll not “weel” …🤷🏻♀️
🤔 “Owl” not make any comment to that!
An easy day w anagrams and cartoon,Happy Wednesday.
Tk you, Professor…same to you! 🔘🙋🏻♀️
Speaking of roulette, in 1967, I was a math/stat grad student, and a friend and I drove W to the Gr Canyon and Las Vegas. I had a scheme to beat the wheel, by playing 2/3 of the wheel, eg. 1-12 and 13-24.Thereby having a near 2/3 chance of winning, 24/38. Playing the wheel at a downtown casino, 0 or 00 came up 3 times in a row , thereby beating my strategy. I was suspicious of the zeros coming up consecutively like that.
Round and round the little ball goes and where she stops, nobody knows. I’ve been to Las Vegas only once so I’m not much of a gambler, but today’s Jumble was an easy solve. Good Wednesday to you all!
You too, Betty! 🔘🙋🏻♀️
Perry Como’s 1957 “Round and Round” might possibly come into play here also.
