Visual Description: A happy couple, preparing to join in wedlock.
FLECT = CLEFT, CEMIN = MINCE, INJOUR = JUNIOR, ORMOAN = MAROON — Giving us: ETINUORAN
Clue/Question: What it costs to get hitched.
Answer: THE “UNION“ RATE
(VERY nice word play, here today! I bet this one gave a lot of you guys fits! I had some trouble with “junior”. A little less with “maroon”. I remember my dad having a maroon car. Don’t ask me the make/model. Anyway. Superior scrambling of the answer letters. It took some thought to get today’s answer. Any time there are more vowels than consonants I get a little thrown. I was looking at the word *rite* for a while. Then I went to “rate”, and then “union” fell into place . . . and made sense! Great way to close out the week, and welcome the Labor Day weekend! Enjoy it, and be safe, people. Be good, do good!) — YUR
