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

    🎶 Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today…🎶 “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” – Miss Tammy Wynette 1968 https://tinyurl.com/4wnm2ewy

    ☕️Chances are he thinks he’s CLEVER, or maybe has no clue,
    She looks angry as a DRAGON…who is just about to spew…
    The day outside so SNOWY, but the chill’s def come indoors,
    (And HUMID’s sitting this one out…there’s no way that it scores)
    It’s early, Henrietta’s miffed…and Earl for sure the source…
    A cup of coffee grinds can surely be GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE! ☕️

    So…Today we kick off the 10th Annual Guest Jumbler Week by welcoming Rick McKee https://tinyurl.com/mr3ymj4x and his “PLUGGERS”… https://tinyurl.com/yc4wzunr And we meet EARL HOUNDSTOOTH, a dog, and his wife, HENRIETTA BEAK, a hen… https://tinyurl.com/mtysv55k

    …Interestingly, what sets “Pluggers” apart from your average, every day run-of-the-MILL comic strip, is the fact that it’s readers’ submissions that RULE the ROAST…so to speak…as we can see by Sandy Epstein’s offering today…So I guess we can say that Rick isn’t subject to the usual GRIND of coming up with a premise each day like other cartoonists. And I’m sure that FILTERS down to the rest of his day going quite well…Hats off, Rick…DRIP, DRIP Hooray!

    Ok…Our cartoon…Obviously this isn’t the first time Earl’s BEAN caught BREWING up trouble. Somehow I don’t think Henrietta would be this BITTER, and looking like she wants to CREAM him, if this were just a FLY-by-night occurrence. Most likely, when it comes to not emptying the filter, it’s a case of déjà BREW with him…he’s BEAN there, done that…and as far as Henrietta’s concerned?…He’s ruffled her feathers one time too many…These GRINDS in her coffee are MOCHA her crazy…and her CUP runneth over…So if Earl knows what’s good for him…he BITTER learn to BLEND a little…and stop trying to MILK his WHEY through life…Or he might just find himself in the DOGhouse…and this may definitely be…GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE!

    So…There you have it, Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and keep in mind…Divorce is like a strong double cup of espresso… It’s bitter…and it’s expensive. ☕️🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🙇🏻‍♀️As far as her hair was concerned, she’d rather deal with a SNOWY day instead of a HUMID one…but her husband’s remark, foolishly thinking he was CLEVER comparing her head to that of a DRAGON, came this close to being GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE…🙇🏻‍♀️

    🤷🏻‍♂️He hated HUMID weather, his lungs would take a hit,
    He thought himself a DRAGON, fire-breathing wouldn’t quit…
    ‘Twas raining…now it’s SNOWY, Mother Nature’s CLEVER ruse,
    A victim of the weather…he puts up with the abuse…
    If Mother Nature married…living her life with such force…
    He figured that her husband surely had GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE! 🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. 🐶 🐓Henrietta and Earl we do meet,
    As the early morning they now greet…
    Earl, he’s had a start,
    Felt he did his part…
    But things just aren’t looking too sweet…🐓🐶

    ☕️For coffee not to have a sting,
    A clean coffee maker’s the thing…
    But with filters unwashed,
    That good taste? It’s def squashed…
    And hardly good coffee you’ll bring…☕️

    🐓Henrietta’s upset…anger shows,
    And let’s face it, understandably so…
    Earl has done it again,
    And she’s wondering when…
    This man will prove to her that he knows…🐶

    🐶🐓”Pluggers” brings us a much varied cast,
    It’s a comic strip that caught on fast…
    And now Rick’s at the helm,
    Of this comic strip’s realm…
    And its fan base has surely amassed…🐓🐶

    ☕️Bottom line when it’s coffee you need,
    For those early morn cobwebs to feed…
    Make sure you start off fresh,
    So no problems enmesh…
    Earl’s example? …It’s not one to heed! ☕️

  4. It’s Monday , start of a new week of jumbles ! Today was a typical fun Monday ! The anagrams were good except I was attacked by a DRAGON ! I should have gotten it , but the letters were all scrambled in my brain ! I felt a little embarrassed that I didn’t get it ! But sometimes we all let the weather of SNOWY and HUMID affect our CLEVER minds ! Ok the jumble gave me GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE , but at first I had words of Grounded , Discover , Over , and it made me study harder ! Then I did GROUNDS and the gimme word FOR , left DIVORCE ! Then I got it ! So everyone have a new fun jumble start of the week Monday !!!!

  5. This one reminds me of an excerpt from a news story in a Chicago newspaper in 1968; I was in Evanston at the time of the riots outside the Democratic convention. The story said that a protester was arrested. The protester asked on what grounds are you arresting me. The police officer said, “coffee grounds”.

    • jim…Which left the protester with an ax to GRIND I’m sure…Everyone has a right to ESPRESSO themselves…so it was probably a BITTER pill to SWALLOW…But faced with a complete BREW ha ha…with everyone so HOT under the COLLAR…it was up to the police to FILTER out the inciters who BLENDed into the crowd looking to STIR things up…So I guess in that INSTANT with a LATTE deal with, the officer just stood his GROUND and figured…”I better MOCHA example of this guy…” ☕️🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Didn’t understand what a plugger was so that confused me. Accomplished anagrams okay but nothing popped out to help me solve. I’m 0/1 for guest week. Enjoy the start of the week.

    • Terry…Rule of thumb for Guest Jumbler Week…If you’re not familiar with the featured comic strip, Google it before you try to do any solving. It’ll PLUG you right in…😉🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Terry…They’re really pretty much straightforward…a Jumble as usual…but as you mentioned, if something throws you off, like “Pluggers” did, it’s best to clear the air…and just concentrate on the dialogue and cartoon as always. You’ll be fine! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. 🥒 Ride and BRINE Everyone…Today is NATIONAL PICKLE DAY…and while not JARring, to some people it is a pretty big DILL…So whether you enjoy pickles or not, let’s RELISH the moment just the same…and enjoy! 🥒🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Good morning. I got all the words pretty quick and Googled plugger but that didn’t help me so I went straight to the answer. I always enjoyed Tammy’s singing especially that song, not it’s outcome. But sometimes that’s the only solution. She was my mother-in-law’s favorite singer. Loved your puns and pick of todays song Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Thank you! Wishing you the same…and have a good one…☕️🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. You know it’s a matter of course
    Plugged coffee pot’s grounds for divorce
    Without a clean filter
    Whole thing’s out of kilter
    And then you’ll be full of remorse!

  10. I too am not familiar with “Pluggers” but was able to figure out the cartoon answer from the dialogue. One down four to go!! Have a good Monday all!

    • Same here, Betty. The clues were all there..Wishing you a good Monday too. ☕️🙋🏻‍♀️
