(She doesn’t look uptight.  And, very often, the women in the Jumble cartoons do look pretty uptight!  Our girl – we’ll call her June – just looks disappointed.  More upset than uptight.  Weight has a sneaky way of creeping up on you.  This whole metabolism thing is completely unfair!

There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles looked new, to me.  I think “throat” might have been the toughest, but I didn’t struggle with any of them.  The answer letter layout was nifty.  That’s about it, for now.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  RUNNING WATER

(Wonderful!  None of the clue words were new, but the jumbling was top-notch.  Surprisingly, the two that made me scratch my head were jumbles that we’ve already had in the past.  The jumbles for “input” and “ninety” have been used before.  Both the “weigh” and “uproar” jumbles are new, from what I can see.  Another stellar answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious.  If you weren’t feeling, you weren’t getting it!  Classic Jumble cartoon, too.  It conveys the both the heat and the gratitude.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(But, of course!  Technically, not really a pun . . . but, it was fun.  There were no new clue words, but all of the jumbling was new, to me.  They were all good, but I only hesitated on “advice”.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away.  I can’t remember seeing one that started with GBS before.  The cartoon was Hanna-Barbera worthy!  A couple more huggers in the background, and an unhappy looking bear in a Cubs hat and jersey, with a drink in his hand.  But, where’s Boo Boo?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jim Furyk

(I really thought that Jim Furyk was finally going to get that monkey off his back, at the RBC.  But, I guess it was not to be.  I also did not realize that Tim Clark was only three shots behind coming into the final round.  All I kept hearing was that Furyk was coming in at -15.  You’ve got to hand it to Clark though.  He stayed in the hunt, and then came on strong on the back nine, while Furyk seemed to run out of gas.  I went to school with a kid named Tim Clark.  I guess it’s not that uncommon a name.  Congrats to Clark, and condolences to Furyk.  But, $615,600.00 is one heck of a consolation prize!

There were no new clue words today!  Maybe Hoyt realizes that ralis95 is very busy, with more important pursuits.  Three of the jumbles were new, to me.  Only the one for “crown” was already in my WordPress database.  The answer letter layout was nifty.  Nothing obvious about it, at all.  The cartoon is fantastic.  I love the expression on Fido’s face.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Today is Lori Loughlin‘s 50th birthday!  I always thought that besides starring on Full House she was also Zoe Morgan, on Person of Interest.  But, that distinction belongs to Ms. Paige Turco.  I think they have a similar look, and they’re less than a year apart in age.  Both fine looking ladies.  Not as fine as Bridget Moynahan though.  She’s the reigning beauty queen of the small screen, for me!  What was Tom Brady thinking by cheating on her?  Putz!   —   YUR

(One of my favorite – and oft used – idioms!  No new clue words today, though many of the jumblings were new.  I struggled some getting “metric”  It’s like the ’70s all over again!  I liked both “outing” and “dental”.  The answer letter layout was another splendid jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Great cartoon.  Nice range of ranges there, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Okay.  This one I was able to figure out.  Friday’s was weird for me.  I was so certain that my answer was right, but I was wrong.  I think I’ve tried to warn you folks about the perils of certainty, in previous comments.  Other than death and taxes, nothing is certain.  I still think that, depending how you look at it, my answer could be right.  But, the ruling has come down from the Creator!  And, who can argue with the Creator?

No new clue words today!  I am once more able to check these things, as I am back in my abode.  All of the jumblings appear to be new though.  None of them troubled me any.  The answer letter layout was very good, especially considering the length of the answer.  The cartoon is reminiscent of The Who!  Truly one of the top ten rock bands of all time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

SPATN  =  PANTS,  TVOID  =  DIVOT,  GARFOE  =  FORAGE,  SUMEIS  =  MISUSE   —   Giving us:  TSOTOAUE

Clue/Question:  They weren’t sure what it would be like sailing in the Mediterranean, so they went – – -

Answer:  OUT TO SEA

(Pretty obvious today.  The biggest problem for me, and probably a number of you, was that the second circle was in the wrong place in “forage”.  It should have been in the fourth position, but in the Democrat and Chronicle, and the Arkansas Online, it’s in the sixth position!  I’m not sure how it is in my home paper, or in others, but it likely had an adverse effect on a good number of you.  I don’t believe any of the clue words were new today.  They all look familiar.  Ironically, the only jumble that wasn’t new was the one for “forage”.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  And, the cartoon was a quaint little European seaport.  The cartoon in today’s paper was a little reduced, so it’s hard to comment on any detail, but I’m pretty sure Jeff skipped the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  I guess it wouldn’t exactly be appropriate, considering the couple is heading out in a sailboat themselves!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The salesman knew everything about bicycle wheels and made a great – – -

Answer:  SPOKES-PERSON

(Beautiful!  A marvelous pun.  I forgot to bring my ralis95 clue word database with me, so I’m not sure if any of today’s words are new, or not.  They look to be old reliables, to me, but that’s just a best guess.  Maybe, because, I got them all without any trouble.  I do know that only the jumble for “press” has definitely been used before.  All the other jumbles were new, to me.  Another top-notch job on the answer letter layout.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon does a fine job of getting the point across.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(And, she looks none too pleased about this arrangement.  But, can you blame her?  Unless you’re a teen with a surfboard, or a big Herman Munster fan, who really wants to be seen driving a hearse?  Very few people really want to be associated with death.  It’s just too depressing.

All of today’s clue words were old favorites.  But, all of the jumblings looked new, to me.  I was able to get them all immediately today.  Great job on the answer letter layout though.  I think with the more letters an answer has the more creative you can get with the answer letter layout.  And, Hoyt did a great job with the clue word selection to arrive at this layout.  Fine cartoon.  Although the hearse looks a little on the short side.  Almost like a hearse SUV.  Hey, maybe they specialize in midgets!  Er . . . little people . . . vertically challenged folk?  What do you want from me?  I just post spoilers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(But of course!  She’s kind of the main mane.  She’s the bigwig of The Wig Wam!  Lots of fun with this one.  There were no new clue words, but all of the jumblings seemed new to me.  I had some trouble seeing “hermit”, but I saw “idiot” and “shove” right away.  The answer letter layout was a nice tease.  No doubt, some of you had to work to untangle the answer.  That is some beehive on the owner!  And, it looks like the male employee is wearing a toupee.  Hey, nice rug, buddy!  Yep.  Mighty fine Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Some day, I’d like to visit this motel.  It’s so kitschy, but it looks like fun.     YUR
