  1. Good Morning, Everyone…. ❤️ HEARTS AFIRE! ❤️
    🎶 Always TURNING MY HEAD sideways like I’m chasing clues…I wanna WALK AWAY but I know I am fixed on you…You got me thinking backwards, running circles and I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO…Oh, well, I don’t know what to do…I can’t stand you’ve got the UPPER HAND…🎶 “The Upper Hand” – Rebelution 2016 https://tinyurl.com/yckh623e

    ❤️ “Oh what a tangled web we WEAVE, when first we practice to deceive”…Sir Walter Scott has said…
    A poker player’s mantra though…is what goes through my head…
    SUPERB liars can pull it off…when it’s about the bluff,
    You might not have the best hand…but it could prove good enough…
    The DRAGON that I’m thinking here?…Is one “draggin” its feet,
    If you’re not alert in poker…you can surely end up beat…
    A slick player goes for the kill…delivering that PUNCH,
    That works to usually conquer…but sometimes one has a hunch…
    A Royal Flush cannot be beat…with it one’s sitting grand…
    So if it’s what one’s holding…then yes…it’s the UPPER HAND! ❤️

    …It’s definitely been a while since we DEALT with a Poker Puzzle…But you gotta HAND it to Jeff…he always PLAYS it sPOT on!

    A Royal Flush, in a nutshell, wipes the floor. There’s nothing higher, and it’s very rare…For the Poker players out there, you know….For the non-indulgent…you don’t. And it really doesn’t PAY for me to explain it all…because well…you don’t PLAY…and I BET you really don’t care…So I’ll just pin a few links here, and you can feel free to disCARD them or not… https://tinyurl.com/29rdhuf9

    So…A game of Hold ‘Em… https://tinyurl.com/37fafzeh And seated at the table from bottom left…Jeff’s good friend, Lissa Sears, https://tinyurl.com/j7rrm2h9 a returning favorite, wearing her signature Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirt, our illustrious graphic artist, Jeff, in the latest Wilco Tee, https://tinyurl.com/256pu8pn, an avid cartoon buff from India…Sheikh Amir Ahmed, https://tinyurl.com/ytkbxyy4 , our wordsmith, David…and another member of Jeff’s inner circle, the often featured, comic-magician, Mac King https://tinyurl.com/3eyhe4zh . And as you can see, it’s the Big Guy at center stage with the POKER face that’s sitting pretty….Obviously HOLDing the Jack and Ace of Hearts…with the King, Ten and Queen showing, Sheikh Amir has gotten himself that Royal Flush…and nothing’s going to UP that…So, yes, he definitely felt he had the UPPER HANDhttps://tinyurl.com/526uc3rm

    Jeff’s Gems? While he’s given David a mere “pair of clovers”…Clubs, he’s not LET ON as to what they are…He’s given Sears a pair of 10’s and Mac KING a pair of Kings…And if you look real closely at his Club card showing, and at the King on the floor, you’ll see that they both feature Mac’s face! That Jeff…he’s such a CARD!…And as for what he’s holding? He hasn’t TIPPED HIS HAND…

    So…There you have it, Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…And in the words of Paul Newman… If you’re playing a poker game and you look around the table and can’t tell who the sucker is…it’s you. And I’m off to make some STAKE and eggs…❤️🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🥊He thought for sure that he had a SUPERB UPPER HAND in the DRAGON Club’s Amateur Bout…and doubted his opponent would land a PUNCH…so he continued to effortlessly bob and WEAVE…🥊

    👠 The Shoe Store had a new slip-on, a WEAVE of a fine leather,
    They felt it had a double PUNCH, being light as a feather…
    The color of it SUPERB, a DRAGON red and gold,
    And they were sure it’d be a hit…with many dozens sold
    They made a special display, built a brand new wooden stand…
    Convinced they had a winner…dubbed the shoe their UPPER HAND!👠

  3. It’s Saturday weekend ! And what a way to end the week ! Lately , I’ve been having more difficulty in one or two anagrams than the jumble solution ! And today , added to that ! The two anagrams that made me raise an eyebrow were DRAGON and SUPERB ! WEAVE was there with thread , and that led me to PUNCH it out ! The jumble was a royal flush and I did feel like the UPPER HAND ! Great way to end the week Saturday !!!!!

  4. Today was a mini-blind solve. .on a first look, saw HAND, then saw a few P’s and a U in the anagrams and came up with UPPER. Anagrams were easy and that finished up the puzzle. Marsha wants to know if you do the Wordle…or any other puzzles? Have a great Saturday.

    • Hi Terry. I’m figuring you’re asking the question of me, not Jeff or David. If I’m wrong, my apologies…But yes, I play Wordle every day. I also do the three crossword puzzles in my paper, the NY Daily News, plus David & Jeff’s Boggle Brain Busters daily. And I then play David’s other games, Just Jumble, Giant Jumble Crosswords, Word Search World Traveler, Word Search World Hollywood, and Up & Down Words on a daily basis. I also have Just 2 Words and Just 2 Words Plus, two more of David’s Apps, loaded to my iPad, but I’ve finished all the puzzles in both games, so there’s no daily playing of those any more until David creates some new puzzles. He does post a puzzle similar to them, a See & Solve puzzle, each Tuesday and Sunday on Facebook, and I do both of those. Plus I play Scrabble Classic Words, against the iPad each day. And I do Sudoku and Kakuro 🔢on a daily basis also….🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

      • You’re a real puzzle afficianado (sp). I just do two…LA Times and USA Today. One other puzzle in our paper that I like is “7 Little Words”. Thanks.

  5. The first anagram, WAVEE, perhaps is a word by itself. It means the person you are waving your hand at. I am surprised they allow the second word NPH*C,in a family newspaper. And the last one could be SUPER B, which means the Super Bowl, where someone forgot the OWL. Hoot, hoot. The printing in my newspaper did not come out well. What did the guy in the upper right say? Did he say “Are a pair of clovers good”, meaning perhaps two clubs, or did he say, “Are a pair of elevens good?” which would imply an augmented deck. It seems to me a pair of elevens would beat a royal flush any day, because normally there aren’t any elevens in a deck. That’s especially true if one of them is an eleven of clubs.

  6. Good morning. I wasn’t too superb this morning. That word eluded me but the rest of the words and the cartoon answer was a breeze. Until tomorrow stay safe and have a great day.

  7. No problem after pausing on the spelling of superb, the cartoon was a quick obvious solve, with hand as an obvious choice for the 4 letter word quickly followed by the entire solution!
