Clue/Question: When Medusa was bitten on the neck, she had a – – -
Answer: BAD HAIR DAY
(For Medusa, every day was a bad hair day! We have a new clue word today, in “cheesy”. ralis95 can add it to his clue word database! It looks like all the jumbles are new today, as well. I really liked the jumbling of “avoid”. The answer letter layout was alright, but would have been better had “blend” and “avoid” been switched. The cartoon is a lot of fun. Note the broken mirror, as gazing upon herself would be fatal. But, also the hand cultivator as a “hair” brush, and the can of snake “hair”spray. Great stuff, guys! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: He wanted to stop overeating, but he couldn’t quit – – -
Answer: COLD TURKEY
(An excellent – and apropos – pun! Thanksgiving leftovers can be better than the meal itself. We always make a ton of stuffing, just so we can have plenty for the leftovers. I hope everybody is having/going to have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Try to remember others who may be far away, on this very grateful day.
No new clue words today. All the jumbles seemed new to me though. The answer letter layout was expertly crafted, and the cartoon was drawn with much care. Be well and do good, my friends. Happy Thanksgiving!) — YUR

Answer: SHOPPING CENTER
(Black Friday is almost upon us! Some people live for it. I live to avoid it. To each his own. Guess what? We had a new word on Sunday, in “tirade”. ralis95 can add it to his clue word database. A bunch of the jumbles were new to me. A super cryptic answer letter layout! Nothing given away. Loads to like in the detailed cartoon. Christmas tree, escalator, great shops, an information sign, and plenty of shoppers. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Answer: BANG-UP JOB
(Terrific pun! No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles looked new to me. We haven’t seen “joist” or “grout” in a while. The answer letter was very nicely cryptic. Nothing given away there. And, a superior cartoon. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: He wanted to leave, but he didn’t have enough – – -
(No new clue words today, but all the jumbles seemed new to me. I don’t think that any of them were difficult. The answer letter layout was not the toughest either. The cartoon was fun. I actually did the puzzles first thing this morning, but took them to work with me, in the hopes of maybe getting them up a little early. But, I got busy. Worked late. Then realized I left my newspaper at work! I could have re-done them off of my newspaper’s email link, that I get every day, but my first thought was to go to Arkansas Online! Worked for me! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: Farley rolled on the barn floor because of his – – -
(Dogs LOVE to roll in stink! They can’t help themselves. Farley is one of my all-time favorite comics dog! He’s just a big lovable galoot. For Better or For Worse is my mother’s favorite strip. I think she identifies with Elly. It’s a very wholesome, down to earth strip. No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles seemed new. I struggled to get “cousin”. The answer letter layout was great. Today’s guest Jumbler made for a very good pun. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
