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

    🎶 It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got THAT SWING..Doo wah, doo wah, doo wah, doo wah,doo wah, doo wah, doo wah, doo wah…🎶 “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)” – Duke Ellington and Miss Ella Fitzgerald 1965 https://tinyurl.com/3s6bx3nv

    🏌🏻‍♂️The FOCAL point here is that ball, its errant ways displayed,
    And there’s no SLUDGE out on the course that could get in the way…
    And David, while no YOUTH is he, has golfed for many years,
    But for some reason here today? His shots they’re just not clear
    If shots like this were FORBID though…mostly likely it would force…
    A great number of golfers banned…for we all HIT OFF COURSE! 🏌🏻‍♂️

    Ok…So let’s be honest, Folks…once again today this one just PLAYS out as simple as can be. We see Jeff, (sporting a Jumble polo), and David out on the links, where David just can’t seem to get control of that ball…There are no WORDS…(and as far as David goes?…Well…you get it)…And as far as our solve goes? …I’m sure you get that too…”Out of bounds”? HIT OFF COURSE! https://tinyurl.com/2p8j78v5

    And that poor homeowner, standing in his yard watching a CHUNK of his tiles being SCRAMBLEd by that errant ball as it takes a few bounces and heads for the gutter? …Well let’s just hope for David’s sake that he doesn’t HIT the roof too!

    So…There you have it, Folks…Done! Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and here’s to us all having the DRIVE to do better today…🏌🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🚙 They tried to keep the FOCAL feature of the YOUTH auto maintenance program centered on how to avoid SLUDGE buildup in a car…and what to FORBID, so as not to HIT OFF COURSE…🚙

    🏌🏻‍♂️The argument was if YOUTH would do better at the game,
    Or was experience of older players key to fame…
    The FOCAL point was putting…no question they’d FORBID,
    And hopes were that nothing would SLUDGE up things for any kid
    The wisdom of the veterans proved it pays to trust the source…
    To hopefully ensure the newcomers won’t HIT OFF COURSE…🏌🏻‍♂️

  3. It’s taco-Tuesday and I’m gonna have some tacos to relieve my mind from the jumble ! I did get it , but it took a lot of figuring out words and golf talk to finally get the phrase that fit the cartoon and golf ! HIT OFF COURSE ! The anagrams were a “hole in one “ ! Still fun and can’t wait for Wednesday jumble ! Everyone have a great taco-Tuesday !!!

  4. 🏌🏻‍♂️Avid golfers are our Jumble guys,
    But today we have David with sighs…
    He’s just not swinging well,
    And it’s easy to tell…
    That he’s struggling to come up with whys! 🏌🏻‍♂️

    🤦🏻‍♂️We see David’s poor swing and a miss,
    And Jeff gives him a good-natured dis…
    For as hard as he’s trying,
    He can’t keep from crying…
    That today he’s just having no bliss! 🤦🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♂️The homeowner looks up at the ball,
    That has chosen on his roof to fall…
    With his hands on his hips,
    He’s just trying to grip…
    That he might need a roofer to call! 🤷🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♀️It’s not like Dave to be off his game,
    (And I’m sorry I shortened his name)…
    It was just for the rhyme,
    To keep with rhythms time…
    So it’s there that I’m laying the blame…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🤞🏻Hopefully David recovered his swing,
    Had a decent game despite this thing…
    That led him out of bounds,
    Causing just to confound…
    And led Jeff to the needling bring! 🤞🏻

    • Don’t think I can come up with another golf groaner this morning! Yours will suffice Angela -well penned! You’ve written so much about golf, do you ever feel like taking up the game yourself?

      • Tk you, Helen. But fortunately today, one need not go to great lengths to sound knowledgeable about most anything. That’s why God created Google! 😉 And yes, I have played, I do play…but it’s really not my cup of TEE…🏌🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Me, tennis is my racquet!
          My son has just bought a junior set of golf clubs for his six year old daughter and she’s out on the practice greens.

  5. Fairly easy anagrams so didn’t stumble over those. Puzzle cartoon gave me grief so capitulated early and went to Angela’s post for the answer. Somehow missed COURSE in all of those letters, even though I saw OFF which should have clued me in. Have a 3:10 tee time today so braving the hot Texas heat to play today. Haven’t hit any roofs lately !!! Excellent song choice to listen to, at the breakfast table….Here’s one for the Duke !!!

    • A while back a reader posted that it seemed like every puzzle related to golf has the word COURSE in it. IMO, why not? So I figured if the solve wasn’t an automatic read…then one had to at least see COURSE for the 6 letter word…And you, kind Sir, spend so much time out there! 😉 The humanity! 😂 And yes…there’s always one for the Duke. Tks, I’m glad you enjoyed it…Have a good one, Terry…and be careful out there with this \^¥|, %[ heat! 🏌🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Good morning. Enjoyed it today. Had a blank stare on three words and then the light bulb came on and I was able to get everyone. The cartoon answer I finally got when I couldn’t make Course because I had an I and had to change The for Hit. Great song. Don’t think anybody could sing that better than her. A great duo with Duke Ellington. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. And I agree, Miss Ella definitely made this one her own. Be well, and stay safe out there…🏌🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. This is a strange solution. The double meaning of OFF COURSE with “of course” does not jibe with me. Of course what? Of course (!), this means lots of shadow solutions, some of which make nearly as much sense as the intended solution. Many of these contain OFF. They include OFF OUR ITCHES, OFF THE CURIOS, HIT ROE CUTOFF (was he on the Supreme Court?), and HIS ORE CUTOFF. The one I like the most is OFF HOT CRUISE. Maybe his recently been on that cruise made him hit the ball erratically. And I find the ;question about whether the guy had balls rather strange, too.

    • The way that guy was playing, he better have balls…extra ones, for all the one he loses…OF COURSE!

  8. Like Chuck, I first thought the cartoon answer was off the course but upon closer look realized it had to be hit. Wishing you all a hole-in-one kind of day.

  9. This was the rarest moment where I had to visit this website because, unbeknownst to me, my hometown paper published the comic picture part of today’s Jumble but I guess they forgot to publish the clues and puzzle with today’s Jumble. But I won’t hold it against them I suppose. The puzzle was easy to solve anyhow. Thank you.

    • I’m glad we could be here to help, Robert. Here’s a link that you can copy and bookmark that can be used to access the puzzle should the need ever arise again.
      Enjoy your day…🙋🏻‍♀️
