  1. Good Morning, Everyone…🪑SEAT…AND YOU SHALL FIND!🪑

    🎶 Don’t have to buy diamonds and pearls…Champagne, sables and such…I never cared much for diamonds and pearls…LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT…🎶 “Little Things Mean A Lot” – The Platters 1964 https://tinyurl.com/d29ncvck

    🪑She buys them up in spurts, she FLATLY tells her friend,
    And every OBJECT she adds to a list that knows no end…
    Applying LOTION to her hands, she cradles them with care,
    (And SEPTUM ‘long with INNING? ..No, they’re no way fitting here)…
    The bubble wrap does BILLOW, as she opens her new find,
    And checks it over carefully…fingers gently entwined…
    Ensuring there’s no breakage, no edges that are brittle…
    With this addition to the group she gets…LITTLE “BUY” LITTLE! 🪑

    CHAIR Ye, CHAIR Ye! …I didn’t need to COLLECT my thoughts with this one…And I’m hoping none of you felt the need to SIT this one out…

    So…I think I should mention that while all of today’s words have graced our pages before, I’ll CUSHION the blow for you if you needed to PAD, I mean pay a little more attention to SEPTUM. Three of the Early Birds DEVIATED on it, and now that I think of it, another FLATLY refused to get Faulty out of his mind…

    Ok…Today we find ourselves in the company of two friends…one with a LITTLE bit of an obsession with miniature chairs. And while some may say she’s off her ROCKER, which isn’t all that CHAIRitable, others WOOD probably say she just seems to have a rather quirky, CHAIRismatic hobby…Different…but hey…who are we to judge her CHAIRacter…I’m sure she’s a TREEmendously nice girl…Anyway…as our diaLOG is telling us, there’s so many more out there for her to BUY, and “PURCHASING in spurts” let’s us know that in her SEATuation…she’s accumulating these LITTLE chairs…LITTLE “BUY” LITTLE… https://tinyurl.com/2p8kj7nu …And we’ve THRONE another one to the wind…(And here I wanted so badly to BUILD up to a WIND-SORE Chair pun…but I ended up just CHAISEing my tail)…

    …And as far as Jeff’s Gems go? …The miniature chairs in themselves are all BOUND to be winners, but if you look real closely, you’ll see that the box for the new chair in her hand (missing one word), reads,”Frank Lloyd Midway Chair Cassina”. https://tinyurl.com/4kx959dh …Check out the price for a “real” one…How’s that for a kick in the SEAT of your pants?

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…And this puzzle put me in mind of a problem I had a while ago…I wanted to buy myself an expensive chair. It was amazing, but the price was pretty high, so I figured I’d SIT ON IT for a while and just come back and get it later. It was a RECLINER…and I did buy it…only to decide to return it…but since I didn’t get the warranty, I couldn’t TAKE IT BACK…And I told the salesman there was no way I was going to take that SITTING DOWN! 🪑🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. 👍🏻As if it hadn’t been enough with the child getting hit and probably suffering a deviated SEPTUM, when the frustrated Little League Coach walked off the field in the third INNING, angry over the LOTION incident, and FLATLY leaving the team, he became the OBJECT of derision…and LITTLE BY LITTLE a somber pall began to BILLOW over the afternoon👎🏻

    🤷🏻‍♂️The class…Human Anatomy…the SEPTUM up today,
    She sat applying LOTION, FLATLY rude was the display…
    Besides that she was listening with earbuds to a game,
    ‘Twas down to the last INNING…truth be told, she had no shame…
    The BILLOW of the lotion’s scent now wafted through the air,
    Prompting a student to OBJECT…”This can’t continue here…
    We’re trying to learn something and our time is not to whittle…
    She’s rude and she’s disruptive to us all…LITTLE BY LITTLE”…🤷🏻‍♂️

  4. 🪑Collecting these chairs she’s obsessed,
    And trying hard to get the rest…
    She buys them in spurts,
    Guess the cost doesn’t hurt…
    ‘Cause she isn’t looking the least stressed! 🪑

    ⏸ I count eleven chairs now on display,
    And number twelve ready to make its way…
    She says there’s more to get,
    That she hasn’t found yet…
    But she searches for them every day⏸

    🤷🏻‍♀️Her friend’s thinking it seems a bit strange,
    As she looks at the chairs all arranged,
    But as friendship will go,
    Biting tongues…we all know…
    Is much better than a bad exchange…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🪑Chairs mid-century is what we’re told,
    With designs that are looking quite bold,
    And our girl is so smitten,
    That she purrs like a kitten…
    With each one in her hands she does hold!🪑

    👏🏻👏🏻Who’s to judge what appeals to our girl,
    Seems these chairs are to her just like pearls…
    She delights in their size,
    It’s not hard to surmise…
    That these chairs give our girl quite a whirl! 👏🏻👏🏻

  5. Hello Sunday Funday ! Boy I thought I was gonna have to pass on this one , cause the anagrams were pretty tough ! But Angela , I stumbled dearly over the anagrams only getting INNING and OBJECT , but I said let’s look at the jumble and I saw 4 T’s and 4 L’s and she was collecting miniatures and that meant small and she had to pay for them so it came to me LITTLE-BUY-LITTLE ! I felt so good ! It fit perfect ! So everyone have a great Sunday Funday !!!!!!

  6. I noticed that when you gave the Jumble puzzle clue, you used the spelling of collectible using letter “i” which is my preference..the writers used spelling with an “a”. I believe either is correct, but the dictionary said spelling using “i” is used twice as much. Just another little thing in language usage that people can have a preference in I guess.

    • Hi Alan. When you say “you” referring to the Jumble clue, I’m sure you realize that the “you” is David, author of the puzzle, and not anyone here on this site. The “writers” you’re referring to throws me off though. I don’t know who you mean by it, nor do I see a spelling anywhere here with an “a”. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the word spelt with an “a”…🤷🏻‍♀️

      • I am looking at the clue as it appears in the Savannah Morning News and it shows “collectables” with the word spelled with an “a”. I always thought all newspapers get the same copy…anyhow, again I prefer to use “collectibles”. Thanks, Alan H

        • Oh, ok, that explains it. I was scratching my head, re-reading everything on here trying to find that elusive letter “a”! 😂 And I was under the same impression…that the Jumble was printed the same in all papers. Surprising to hear that it’s not. Obviously it’s a typo… Thanks for clearing up the confusion, Alan, and I’m with you. “I” is definitely the way to go…Have a good one…🪑🙋🏻‍♀️

          • Thanks, Angela. I just notice details like that..50 years ago I was a state spelling champion in Georgia..and 50 years later, I’m still fairly good, maybe not great. My late Dad and I never, ever let a Jumble beat us!!

            • No, thank you, Alan, for clearing it up. I tried to find the puzzle in your paper, but no luck. But seeing the pic of Clark Gable more than made up for it!…And I know exactly where you’re coming from. A misspelling sticks out like a sore thumb…And you gave me a chuckle. My late Father 💔 had me doing the Jumble as soon as He taught me to read…and I never looked back…And we never, ever admitted defeat either! 😉

  7. It was somewhat of a Sunday struggle for solving today’s Jumble. Being just a bit too cryptic for a quick blind solve, I started unscrambling anagrams, but spent a fair amount of time on SEPTUM and BILLOW. After that little bit of work, and with letters in front of me, it was pretty easy to find the solve. Angela’s gems were fun to read…and a very tuneful, and apt…song, as well

  8. Good morning. Spent a lot of time on the words, especially septum and billow. The first word I had to look up but billow I finally got. The puzzle also took some time but I to noticed a lot of T’s and E’s which led to the final answer. Loved your song choice Angela. Now it’s time to get back to all your posts. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Tk you…Enjoy your day. Be well and stay safe out there…🪑🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. I wonder if anyone else stumbled (Jumbled?) upon ‘tempus’ before settling on ‘septum?’

    They both appear as entries in the online edition of the Miriam-Webster Dictionary — and although ‘septum’ isn’t exactly an ordinary word, ‘tempus’ is less ordinary (but it seems more familiar due to its similarity to ‘tempest’).

    • JRay, you’re right…Tempus is listed in Merriam-Webster. Thank you for pointing it out. I’ll pass this on to David. Have a good one! 🪑🙋🏻‍♀️
