Good Morning, Everyone….I hope this finds you well…
🪙 GIVE ME LIBERTY……OR GIVE ME DEATH 🪙
🎶 LITTLE SISTER, don’t you…Little sister, you can’t do what your big sister done..🎶 “Little Sister” – (with apologies to) Elvis 1961 https://tinyurl.com/2p9fc69u
🪙 If life has TAUGHT us anything, it’s just don’t “press” your luck,
There was no need to mint a coin for 1/5 of a buck…
Like a SCOUT who’s a HIKER, sometimes INDOOR stays are best,
They tried it out … it made no sense…and so it failed the test
The size, the shape…confusion…some thought it just deranged…
And heads or tails…a major fail…the coin was just SHORT-CHANGED! 🪙
So…Pocket CHANGE… https://tinyurl.com/4natuajj ….Chances are most people never knew that there was a 20¢ coin https://tinyurl.com/2p9aa5xw in our past. But being a trivia buff, I had a HEADS-up with this one, since I SPENT time one night losing a game because of this very thing. So…with the coins depicted, which are considered pocket CHANGE, and the dialogue…”They didn’t even give me a chance”… https://tinyurl.com/tk2nzv8e it was a giveaway for me. The Early Birds though?…Only a QUARTER of them were aware of the 20¢ coin, so it helped. .The others? They practically FLIPPED out trying to make CENTS of it…
And while no one SPENT any time deciphering the anaGRAMS, we COUNTED how long it took most of the EB’s to get the solve. And even with the letters written out, some of them came up SHORT. But the bottom line? The 20¢ coin, despite its smooth edge, was just too similar in size and shape to the Quarter…and with the image on both featuring “Seated Liberty” on a rock, it was just too confusing to the public…unfortunately rendering it a SHORT-lived existence…So it couldn’t help feeling…SHORT-CHANGED!
So…There you have it Folks…Done. Be well, stay safe…And have a good one …to COIN a phrase! 🪙🙋🏻♀️
I STAND WITH UKRAINE 💔🇺🇦
AND IN OTHER WORDS…🔠🙋🏻♀️

SUTCO & ODIRNO: NEW
🙇🏻♂️He knew he’d be SHORT-CHANGED when he saw HIKER after hiker returning to the entrance of the INDOOR pavilion…and realized that as the SCOUT assigned to the outing, he’d be TAUGHT a lesson in the consequences of weather…🙇🏻♂️
🥾 As a SCOUT he was a HIKER, and he had been TAUGHT well,
He enjoyed walking the different trails, and not just INDOOR dwell…
The camaraderie welcomed…with different thoughts exchanged,
And he knew within the Scouts he would never be SHORT-CHANGED! 🥾
🪙 With a coin that while looking quite fine,
Was it needed to replace two dimes?
People got so confused,
For the mint…it brought blues…
And it didn’t last such a long time…🪙
🗽 Lady Liberty sits on a rock,
But the new coin looks like the same stock…
So confusion ensued,
And the citizens stewed…
And the 20¢ coin they did knock…🗽
🗽 With the Quarter already in play,
This new coin seemed to get in the way…
It was too much a clone,
Lady Liberty shown…
And complaints were just causing a fray! 🗽
🤷🏻♂️ People said, “I’ll put my two cents in,
We don’t need this coin…it’s just too thin…
If the shape was different,
From one 25 cents…
Maybe then using it would begin”…🤷🏻♂️
🤷🏻♀️ Twenty cent coins the country did try,
But confusion caused people to cry…
“It’s too much like a Quarter,
Maybe if it was shorter…
I’d use it when I go to buy”! 🤷🏻♀️
Interesting to read of the short-lived 20 cent coin!
Good morning jumble friends,
Being “TAUGHT” “INDOOR” at school, if I wanted to be a “HIKER” , I always needed to “SCOUT” out all the paths I wanted to take, then I wouldn’t feel “SHORT CHANGED”, when I couldn’t experience the beauty of nature ! – until tomorrow, have a sunny day !
Good Morning, Suz. You too. 🪙🙋🏻♀️
This Jumble also has the solution GHOST-RANCHED. The only place where you find 20-cent coins now is on ghost ranches, which like ghost towns have been abandoned (and of course at coin dealer places).
Never Short-Changed when there’s time for the Jumble. I was Taught to use my Indoor voice at school but as a Scout and Hiker, we could yell. Hot on the Great Plains today but a cool weekend ahead. One of my all-time favorite Elvis tunes, Angela! Today is my Friday so let the party begin!
I was tricked into going down a wrong rabbit hole today…and therefore, failed at solving the cartoon puzzle. I just knew that first five letter word was going to be “CENTS”, but that was not to be. Was a little bit in a hurry, but that’s no excuse for Jumbler’s, is it?? Have a great day and see you tomorrow.
Wishing you the same, Terry. 🪙🙋🏻♀️
With just five cents between you and me
It was clear I was not to be
The mint had to choose
So as not to confuse
So I’m the martyr in coin history!
No one had time to get really acquainted
My life was so short and mint-tainted
So briefly I shone
Then I was gone
For that I should really be sainted!
Good morning. I didn’t get short changed today. I was able to get both parts of jumble with very little trouble. It was almost a blind solve. Once I looked at the letters to the cartoon, the answer popped into my head right away. Good choice Angela for the song. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.
Good Morning, Paul. Tk you. Be well and stay safe out there…🪙🙋🏻♀️
All is well today w a quick solve of all, even though I wasn’t familiar w a 20c coin.
Clever puzzle this morning. Able to solve it without difficulty though I did not know there was a 20cent coin so I learned something today.
We all did.
Good morning thirsty Thursday ! I’m making this short today , got a lot on my plate getting ready for Suzie’s birthday tomorrow ! And I will not leave her SHORT CHANGED ! I agree with Terry , it was cents less! Everyone have a great thirsty Thursday !!!!
You too, Jim. 🪙🙋🏻♀️
