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

    🎶 I’m on the OUTSIDE LOOKING IN…An’ I wanna be, an’ I wanna be back on the inside with you…🎶 “I’m On The Outside Looking In” – Little Anthony & The Imperials 1964 https://tinyurl.com/mr35zf48

    💸 Maybe they’re off to Florida, where the GECKO reigns supreme,
    Or somewhere more exotic…SPICY foods…caviar dreams…
    Maybe the ones in First Class all drive a HYBRID car,
    They can be more expensive ‘cause some say they raise the bar…
    But money is the theme today, it’s comfort on the line,
    And if you’re not sitting up front…things aren’t quite sublime…
    You luck out with a CASHEW…while a meal up front entices…
    The parity? Ridiculous!…Just like the SKY-HIGH PRICES! 💸

    It’s funny…Sometimes I struggle looking for the perfect emoji to fit the puzzle’s theme…but today? Money taking FLIGHT? The shoe definitely fit! Ah…the friendly SKIES! Most of the time…

    Today we find ourselves aboard a PLAIN…well it is as far as our couple in Coach is concerned…(who I’ll call Nick L, and his wife Penny)…But the people behind Door #1…I mean Curtain #1? Definitely an example of “Let’s Make a Deal”! Champagne being served, and those nice big swivel seats…Let’s face it, Folks, you get what you OVER-PAY for…But that flight attendant at the curtain, with his finger to his lips telling the people in coach to…what?…lower their voices I guess? Oh for FLYING out LOUD! Is he kidding? He definitely needs an ALTITUDE adjustment…and someone should tell him to come down off his HIGH horse, IMO…Boy, talk about HIGHfalutin! I’m sure that wouldn’t FLY with most people!

    Anyway…bottom line. Today’s solve? Our dialogue…”What people pay”, …”Afford”…and the leading nature of our question? …”Chose…after seeing”…Hard to miss what DIRECTION David’s taking here, Folks…Nick L and Penny…their conversation?…WINGed it!… It’s the SKY-HIGH PRICES, https://tinyurl.com/4djz4kwd for sure…

    Jeff’s Gems? Up front, at left, we see a woman being offered champagne and some hors d’oeuvres, and a man reclining, while at right, a lobster dinner’s being served. And in coach, a gentleman sits with his phone in hand… But where Jeff’s creativity really TOOK OFF? If you look closely at Penny’s seatback screen, you can see l-r, John Goodman, Jeff Bridges, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro in the bowling alley of “The Big Lebowski”, while on the screen of the person behind Nick, Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta are sitting in “Pulp Fiction”’s diner. Now those are some First Class graphics!

    So…ThAIR you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…And I think I’ll TAKE OFF for now…💸🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🌶 Talk of The GECKO Snack Company coming out with a SPICY HYBRID CASHEW had people shaking their heads…especially with the SKY-HIGH PRICES they were asking…🌶

    🤷🏻‍♀️She watched the GECKO slither by, sitting in her HYBRID car,
    While snacking on her favorite nut, the CASHEW…best by far…
    She usually liked things SPICY, but the cashews hit the spot,
    As she sat there and waited in the crowded parking lot…
    Her thoughts drifted to getting home and mixing up some spices…
    Although her stash was limited now due to the SKY-HIGH PRICES!🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Wow ! I had to climb over the hump on Wednesday hump.-day , to get the answers! The anagrams gave me no trouble except for my favorite peanut CASHEW ! I just couldn’t see it ! Now the jumble was very hard working , but after I got the letters and saw they were in a plane up HIGH and how expensive first class was with PRICES and they were in the SKY it came out SKY HIGH PRICES ! It did take some moving letters around , but I got it ! Another fine jumble to keep the week going of fun and entertaining Jumbles ! Everyone have a great Wednesday hump-day !!!

  4. No stump-hump day….A blind solve followed by a few moments of exasperation unscrambling a couple of the anagrams….GECKO was problematic, and I was ready to back in CASHEW, when that light popped on !!

    On the outside looking in really paints the perfect picture of riding in coach….maybe that scene was immortalized on a Seinfeld episode (I still enjoy watching). When asked by the Flight Attendant if they would like more champagne….he smugly tells her…”We’ll have more of everything” !! Ah, the delights of it all. Now must go back and view the intricacies of those cartoons that Angela spoke of.

  5. 💸 So a couple is looking to fly,
    But the airfare had caused them to sigh…
    Not expecting so much,
    They felt so out of touch…
    With the prices that had gone sky high! 💸

    🤷🏻‍♀️Back in Coach they felt so out of place,
    Cramped in seats that had so little space…
    But finances were tight,
    And First Class? Out of sight…
    Who knew they could be so far off base! 🤷🏻‍♀️

    🥂 Up in First Class they saw people dine,
    On rich meals served along with aged wine…
    While some soda they drank,
    They saw they didn’t rank…
    Up there with the those with the large bank line! 🥂

    🤷🏻‍♂️Lobster served on fine china the norm,
    In First Class no reason to conform…
    To restrictions like those,
    Who can’t pay through the nose…
    And are treated at best quite lukewarm! 🙎🏻‍♂️

    🗣So our couple were left with no choice,
    And their flight? Not much cause to rejoice…
    But one thing is for sure,
    That attendant…the bore?
    Need not tell them to lower their voice! 🗣

  6. With airfares that continue to soar
    Some travellers are saying “No more”
    We’re in the same plane together
    The lowest fare I can weather
    I’ll just make do with plAin food and décor!

  7. Good morning. I’m on the bus to A/C and todays jumble for two of us tackling it felt it was a doozy. Of course with the bus bouncing around didn’t make it any easier. But I prevailed, I was able to solve both parts after some time. Loved you song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Tk you…Have a great day…Be well, stay safe…and good luck! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Quick Jumble. SKY-HIGH PRICES was the obvious answer. But what causes them? Some of the shadow solutions may give a clue. If prices are high, we need to protest; we need to CRY, “HIGH SPIKES!”. The high prices are probably caused by a bunch of GYP-RICH SHEIKS. Pretty soon they will charge for you to take pictures out the plane’s window and they will raise those prices, too. SKY PICS HIGHER.

  9. First Class Jumble as always this morning which is probably more than you can say for airline travel these days if news reports are true: lack of crew members, flight delays and yes, indeed sky high prices. Happy Wednesday all!

  10. The gecko insurance co saved my solution of that anagram,and a virtual blind solve of the cartoon followed,even though my real newspapers were over 2 hrs late.
