  1. Good Morning, Everyone…✏️ 2B…OR NOT 2B? ✏️
    🎶 You’re so REMARKABLE…I never quite told you this…How much you meant to me…🎶 “Remarkable” – Terry Dexter 2000 https://tinyurl.com/ycx3kevy
    So…Another Pencil Puzzle? Can that be WRITE? We just had a Pencil Puzzle on Monday…Too bad I’m not the type to keep a GRAPH…ITE probably find it amusing…

    Meanwhile…Back in Philadelphia…Today it’s Hymen Lipman https://tinyurl.com/9vcf8h3m and his patent, #19,783 https://tinyurl.com/5n849tad for a pencil with an attached eraser. MARK the date, it was March 30th, 1858. And while the solves to our puzzles are always an immediate automatic read for me, and ERASE to the finish line, today I wasn’t sure if I was going in the WRITE direction, so I needed to think for a moment and re-read the dialogue, lest I make a MISTAKE…And then it hit me…and I got David’s POINT…The eraser…One could now RE-MARK things…It was a REMARKABLE invention! I guess I wasn’t all that SHARP there for a brief moment…

    Jeff’s Gems? We see the patent in Mr Lipman’s associate’s hand, while he himself looks over his illustrated blueprint…Which shows a pencil, with the corresponding words: Wood, Eraser, and Graphite…While a second pencil POINTS out the Metal Band used to hold the eraser in place…But what DREW me in were the WOOD shavings on the table, lying next to a knife that was used to sharpen the pencil. It brought back a sweet memory of doing my homework at my Grandmother’s house one day, and seeing Her do the same…and asking Her where was Her pencil sharpener…and later asking my Mom to buy Her one…And I hope little memories such as this are never ERASED from my mind…

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…And keep in mind that we all make MISTAKES in life…the key is to not allow them to become DRAWBACKS…and to definitely not allow others to RUB it in…✏️🙋🏻‍♀️

    Thoughts and Prayers to all our readers in the paths of these storms sweeping our country…🙏🏻


  2. …AND IN OTHER WORDS …🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. I deserve my favorite sweet lemonade tea for a very successful thirsty-Thursday ! I went after the anagrams very BRAVE ! I didn’t even have to think about contacting a BROKER ! It was like my favorite food prepared with a LADLE ! So let’s EMBARK to the jumble ! Any mention of a pencil has to have something to do with writing , or in other words Marking ! Well I saw that right away , and if you erase a pencil mark , you have to REMARK , which in H. Lipmans time , was REMARKABLE ! Everyone have a great thirsty-Thursday !!!!!

  4. As I pondered the puzzle cartoon, there was no phrase to help figure it out, but I did think it might end with ABLE. Although correct, that didn’t really help with the puzzle solution. So…off to work I went with the anagrams and speedily unscrambled them…to find the answer. Getting cold in central Texas, but as Angela remarked, that’s nothing compared to the rest of the nation…so bundle up and enjoy Thirsty Thursday !!

  5. It’s back to Pencilvania again. Is it called a pencil because it was invented in Pennsylvania? If so that is really REMARKABLE. It’s a REAL EMBARK, so that the cartoon answer contains one of the four little answers. How often does that occur in a Jumble? Did he have a dog, a REAL BARKER? In any case, H. Lipman must have been an ABLE MARKER with his pencil, and the comment about no one can erase his invention was an ABLE REMARK.

  6. Good morning. The words weren’t much of a problem but the cartoon answer with ten letters took a little longer to get. The outcome was even remarkable for me. Loved your post Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  7. A world-changing invention I suppose
    Encouraging all to write prose
    Wood, lead and rubber
    A mistake? Well just scrub ‘er
    And your words you can just recompose!

    I love pencils although I tend to use up the eraser long before the actual pencil. Always changing my mind I suppose……

  8. After sorting out the correct spelling of “ladle” the cartoon was an obvious solve, no eraser needed this morning.But winter clothing is needed on this cold and windy day.
