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


    🎶 NOWHERE TO RUN to, Baby, NOWHERE TO HIDE…Got nowhere to run to, Baby, nowhere to hide…🎶 “Nowhere to Run” – Martha Reeves & The Vandellas 1965  https://tinyurl.com/sxpjsj7v

    🦍 The GAVEL came down on him, Kong now would pay the price,
    He thought he’d get away with it…took that roll of the dice…
    He’s guilty but he’s now escaped…took to the GRITTY streets,
    Tried hiding ‘hind some bushes…but ‘twas not an easy feat…
    No go with the AZALEA, not even an oak tree,
    He searched around old Central Park but nowhere could he flee
    He tried the Loch CREEK…no luck…the cops who were in charge…
    Found him behind a Hot Dog cart…Kong’s just too LARGE AT LARGE! 🦍

    So once again today, we’re walking down Memory Lane. King Kong’s no stranger to the Jumble. We last saw him in June of last year, but he’s also made APEarances in June of 2019, July and September of 2017, March of 2016, April of 2015, August, September, October and November of 2013, and November of 2012, just to name a few…I quit SEARCHING at that point, but I’m betting there’s plenty more. So I guess we can say that it’s a foreKONG conclusion that David must be a really BIG fan…But I still can’t help but wonder…What kind of MONKEY business was going on in that latter part of 2013?…Four months in a row? GORILLA in the MISTery there…Anyway, as in the past, this LARGER than life icon always makes for an interesting CASE…So…FAY WRAY, I mean Hooray for today’s puzzle!…Ok,..now let’s cut to the CHASE…

    AT LARGE… https://tinyurl.com/4ekbrcdm and the two-fold definition fits two-fold with King’s dilemma. Poor Kong…As LARGE as he is…there’s no where to hide…but let’s be FRANK… Behind a Hot Dog cart? No way that cuts the MUSTARD… https://tinyurl.com/4bcsvmxs …And as far as our solve goes? The dialogue…”found the BIG guy”and the very leading nature of the question…”AVOIDING capture was tough”? …Bottom line…He’s on the run…but it looks like the police threw a MONKEY wrench into his escape plan and he’ll soon find himself behind MONKEY bars…’Cause there’s no way Kong avoids capture…he’s just too LARGE AT LARGE!

    The Gems? The Hot Dogs are priced at $3…but inflation’s alive and doing insanely well in NYC…they’re $4 now. And you gotta love the vendor, tongs in hand, getting impatient wondering if Kong intends to order…And then there’s Kong…trying to do that quintessential NY thing we’ve all mastered…hiding behind a newspaper! In this CASE, the Trib….And from what I can see, these things APEpear…The left side page shows David and Jeff’s Boggle Brain Buster game, https://tinyurl.com/2rem499p and a blank Jumble. The right side? There’s an image beneath Kong’s fingers, but it’s hard to see. I’m going with neither HAIR nor there…But the BIG Gem that whet my APEpetite this morning? There’s a picture of Jeff…and it reads, “Knurek wins Rueben”. And for those who don’t know, The Rueben https://tinyurl.com/3m7futa4 is the highest honor bestowed upon a cartoonist…BA-BOON!…I mean BABOOM!

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…And here’s my call to the Society getting around to APEpreciating Jeff’s work as much as I do! 🦍🙋🏻‍♀️


    • Bravo for all the details!
      I wonder if anyone else saw the poor King as the tortured King Lear and unscrambled the answer as “Regal at large?”

  2. 🌺 The placards for the Judge Family Farm flower show were to read…”By and large the best prices in town”, and show him, the Judge, GAVEL in hand, surrounded by AZALEA plants…but they were mistakenly printed as…”LARGE AT LARGE” and now, because of the late date…getting down to the nitty-GRITTY…they were up the CREEK without a paddle…🌺

    👨🏻‍⚖️ The judge just threw his GAVEL down, the CREEK it would be drained,
    The GRITTY things seen floating?…Time had come…nothing to gain…
    Someone suggested flower beds…AZALEA would be nice,
    Whatever they decided it would be well worth the price
    He helped form a committee…and they would be in charge…
    To get it done and quickly…it’s an eyesore…LARGE AT LARGE…👨🏻‍⚖️

  3. 🦍 Kong was thinking he’d get away quick,
    Figured he’d run and the cops out slick…
    But he didn’t realize,
    That an ape of his size?
    There’s nowhere that ‘out’ he wouldn’t stick! 🦍

    🤦🏻‍♂️ Do the crime and you’ll def pay the price,
    Usually it’s a roll of the dice…
    And King Kong just the same,
    Despite his famous name…
    Got collared for his chosen vice! 🤦🏻‍♂️

    👮🏻‍♂️ In the park Kong thought he had it made,
    But his cards this time he poorly played…
    ‘Cause the law sought him out,
    Really there was no doubt…
    That they’d catch him in the police raid! 👮🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♂️ With a size that was as large as Kong’s,
    He’d be seen…and it didn’t take long…
    There was nowhere to hide,
    With a stature that wide…
    His escape plan just turned out all wrong! 🤷🏻‍♂️

    🗽In the city that just never sleeps,
    King Kong thought through the streets he could creep…
    But he wasted his time,
    And he’ll pay for his crime…
    ‘Cause his capture was one easy sweep! 🗽

  4. Good morning taco/Tuesday ! Wow ! Todays jumble had me up a CREEK ! I’m gonna put the GAVEL down on this one cause it left me with a GRITTY taste ! I wasn’t sure of the spelling of AZALEA cause I had to look , but I did get the word ! After my wife and I tried to capture King Kong with REAL , GREAT , and LARGE , but the answer itself was AT LARGE ! Everyone have a great taco Tuesday !!!!!

  5. “in flagrante” means caught in the act
    Seems King Kong is lacking in tact
    Thinks he can hide out of sight
    Forgets his girth and his height
    He’s just too big as a matter of fact!

  6. AMAZON PRIME DAY..And my in box reads like a laundry list! 😱🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Hi and Good Morning – what a glorious day ! To start the day off I did real good figuring out the anagrams but the jumble stumped me. So here’s a story – the “AZALEA” was ” LARGE AT LARGE” When the judge slammed his “GAVEL”, when the gardner knew he was up a “CREEK”, just because he was “GRITTY” from planting that beautiful azalea he had pilfered !
    Until tomorrow – everyone have a sunny day !

  8. Looked like AT LARGE out of the starting gate…but what could that first word be? LARGE AT LARGE didn’t make any sense. Okay, so I do the anagrams and lo and behold…I was right !! Thanks for all cartoon explanations, Angela….and a cool, upbeat song.

    • YW, Terry…and thank you. And you’re not alone, I originally thought the same thing as far as the solve goes. It seemed a little off…but no BIG 😉deal, right? 🦍🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Good morning. Azalea got me. I was unable to come up with that word but the rest was a breeze, even the cartoon answer. When I put down the letters for the cartoon answer I noticed most were doubles so I separated them into two groups with A T added to one side. The answer could easily be seen. Really enjoyed your post Angela and your song choice. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  10. I also wasn’t sure of the spelling of azalea, then thought the first cartoon answer was great rather than large, but needing the T for ‘at’ led me to large rather than great.

  11. Another vote here for thinking of great at first and also thought large at large didn’t make sense but it does in Jumble Land so all in all it was a successful day. Have a good one all!

  12. Like some of the other commenters here “large at large” sounds a little off. Perhaps if we thought of it as describing Mr. Kong, that is “he is large, at large” it might make more sense. Or not. No matter — “azalea” was a good puzzler!
