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


    🎶 Yes, it don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got THAT SWING…🎶 “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)” – The Always Elegant, Mr Duke Ellington and his Orchestra (originally recorded) 1932 https://tinyurl.com/2p8zehh2

    ⛳️ David stopped at the small KIOSK before he would tee off,
    It had become a RITUAL, and sometimes Jeff would scoff…
    In a rush always to get there, to get the game AFOOT,
    He’d tease him ‘bout his foibles…(not COARSE with his input)…
    But ever since that golden day when like a well shot puck,
    That rock was saving glory…David lives by STROKE OF LUCK! ⛳️

    Golf. And we’ve definitely been here beFORE…but today we’re ADDRESSing it a bit differently…Today we don’t have the word Course in our solve…but more importantly…David comes out a winner! …PUTT speaking of addressing…for a moment I thought to title this “HELLO, BALL”, and go with a Bobby Vee song https://tinyurl.com/4nz22dat from 1961, PUTT I had to stay the COURSE and STICK with the first tune and title that started PLAYING…It’s just the way I SWING…

    So…Today’s anagrams…we’ve seen two beFORE: TARILU from 2017, and REACOS from 2019. And again they were easily SLICED through like PUTTER …And again, our solve? We didn’t need a little BIRDIE to help us out here…Definitely no HOLES in this story…David quoted as admitting that it was a “horrible swing”…and yet… he ACEd it? That bounce, that rock? The STROKES of Jeff’s pen BREAKing the bank? A STROKE OF LUCK! https://tinyurl.com/2jyxfkm5 This one wasn’t ROUGH at all! …And as for David’s attire… FANCY-fully reminiscent of Ralph Kramden… https://tinyurl.com/5n88rcca And of COURSE, since we’re playing near the water…the Signature Sinking Sailboat suits the picture to a TEE!

    So…There you have it Folks…Done! Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and here’s to us all having a friendCHIP like David and Jeff’s! ⛳️🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 👍🏻 They considered it a STROKE OF LUCK that what they thought would be a COARSE, drawn out RITUAL to lease the KIOSK proved to unfounded…and they couldn’t wait to get their plans AFOOT…👍🏻

    🤷🏻‍♀️ She stood beside the KIOSK, thinking something’s def AFOOT,
    The guy’s manner was just too COARSE..and that was mildly put…
    This RITUAL of his suspect…all this to make a buck?
    How was he still in business? Must just be a STROKE OF LUCK…🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. 🏌🏻‍♂️To succeed at golf you must perfect,
    Your swing…or you’ll end up a wreck…
    And you must learn to pace ‘er,
    Or get an eraser…
    And just pray that nobody will check! 🏌🏻‍♂️

  4. Not easy. This whole week had been a little bit difficult. I succeeded today. See you all tomorrow!

  5. I struggled with this one, mainly because i don’t golf, however, the first and only time I hit the links, my swing was perfect for a beginner, thinking the ball would end up on the green – the ball sailed beautifully toward the hole but instead of hitting the green it landed right in the middle of a flock of birds ! Oh well, i got my first and only “Birdie” !
    Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone !
    Until tomorrow’s puzzle !

  6. Good morning thirsty-Thursday ! Today’s anagrams must have had “ confusion dust “ around them that affected my train of thought cause I had the worst time ever to getting them . I had trouble with all four ! But , when I got to the letters of the jumble and saw the two golfers and the one that hit his ball on the rock that bounced over on the green and went in the hole , that was and I saw LUCK cause he was ! And when you hit a golf ball it’s called a STROKE and I was so happy ! I felt like I had a STROKE OF LUCK ! I’m gonna let this go and look forward to tomorrows and let my brain rest ! Everyone have a great thirsty-Thursday !!!!

  7. Top O’ the Morning to all and a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The Jumble is a Ritual, like the neighborhood coffee Kiosk, that is always Afoot and never Coarse. No need for a Stroke of Luck today as it was smooth as a golf pro’s swing.
    Now, as my grandmother Finnegan would say: “May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

  8. Good morning. I didn’t have the luck of the Irish on today’s words. The last two I gave up on but the cartoon answer was a slam dunk. Oh wait, that’s basketball. Anyway, until tomorrow stay well and stay safe. Loved the song choice.

    • Good Morning, Paul. You can always make me smile. Tks…Glad you enjoyed it. Be well and stay safe, too. ⛳️🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Good morning! Agree with some of the other comments; today and yesterday have been harder than normal. But that makes it fun. Took we a long time to get “PRIOR KNOWLEDGE” yesterday, and then I had to back into “RITUAL” today, after getting the cartoon. My morning RITUAL is JUMBLE and WORDLE over a bowl of cereal. Jumble has been a great diversion with the crazy world events over the past two years…which seem to be continuing. Angela – thanks for all you do! Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    • Good Morning, Brad. YW, and thank you. Wishing you a happy day too! ☘️🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. The best part of the morning was finding a new term for troubling times with a xword, jumble or wordle…..CONFUSION DUST !! Now that’s a real keeper. Thanks, Jim. As a golfer, twas an easy blind solve, but I don’t think that had much to do with it. Also, lucky for the blind solve because I had to back in RITUAL. And the icing on the cake goes to Angela’s wonderful song. Am not a St. Patty’s participant so won’t be donning the green shirt today. Thanks for posting all the wonderful blogs.

  11. Pro golfers would love such luck
    ‘Twould ensure a bigger buck
    Would keep their score low
    On the card that they show
    Pot o’gold? At long last they’ve struck!

  12. The rock was a confusing thing. I looked for a solution using ROCK, but the best I could come up with was FLUKES TO ROCK. Sure this golf stroke was a fluke, but it didn’t sound right. So I tried ROCKET, meaning a little rock, although that looked like a big rock to me. (That would mean Rocket City is in Arkansas.) I came up with ROCKET OF SULK. I don’t think the golfers were sulking. Eventually I got the solution, but I see that STROKE OF LUCK contains ROCK among its letters, and with a rock in the cartoon, that made it harder than usual.

    • Even before I started, I guessed OF LUCK. Easy 2 first anagrams however, no luck with the last 2 … needed help.
      Stroke was an easy solve.
      My friends in Florida are golfing but no one here in Ottawa… still deep in the white stuff.
      Happy St-Pat day to you!
      Sláinte 🍺!

  13. Anagrams and cartoon were a virtually blind solve. I used to play golf every day that ended in a ‘Y’, but never had a hole in one. Closest I came was a hole in ‘3’ when I hit my first shot OB , took my penalty stroke and hit my next shot in the hole, for my ‘hole in three’.

  14. Better luck with the cartoon solution this morning. It’s been a fun week. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all! Erin go Bragh! ☘️ 🇮🇪
