(I Can’t Explain why none of the clue words are new, but all of the jumblings appear to be new.  Well . . . actually, that’s not a New Song.  The answer letter layout was Pure and Easy for someone of My Generation.  Some of you like to ask Who Are You to criticize Hoyt and Knurek, and you might even be looking for a Substitute to Uncle Rave, for these spoilers.  Have you Had Enough?  Am I Much Too Much?  Well, Cry If You Want, this blog is still a BargainDo You Think It’s Alright if I continue to Fiddle About with this blog?  You Better You Bet.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MATERIALIZED

(A funky little send up to Star Trek!  Buffy better get his silly little tail outta there!  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were new.  Check the Tags.  The answer letter layout is marvelous!  And a great – if not somewhat disturbing – cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

English: Brahman bull and rancher

English: Brahman bull and rancher (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  BULL MARKET

(He better not steer him wrong!  I’m sure the rancher can tell the difference between a bull and a steer.  But, if he did make that mistake his herd would only increase by one.  We had no new clue words today, but all of the jumblings appear to be new.  I thought the jumbling of “taken” was pretty good, and I also liked the one for “calmly”.  I saw both “trump” and “cobalt” immediately.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble, and the answer made for a good, stinky pun.  Maybe not as stinky as that market, but, then again, to a country boy the smell of manure in the morning . . . smells like victory.  Mighty fine cartoon/drawing there, pahdnuh.  Where’s that supposed to be . . . Montana, Wyoming, Texas???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HAIRBRAINED IDEA

(I almost forgot the quotation marks, and was surprised to see that WordPress did not like the spelling!  I found out the correct spelling is harebrained, and it means having no more sense than a hare.  I never really gave the word much thought before, it’s just such a part of idiomatic speech.  We had one new clue word today, in “coarse”.  Hoyt has been on fire lately.  He’s really keeping ralis95 on his toes.  A bunch of the jumblings are new.  The answer letter layout is marvelously cryptic.  No giveaways.  Fantastic cartoon, too.  I don’t know if it’s actually supposed to be Hoyt, or not, but I generally assume it is when Jeff draws a baldy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Too much Getty owned photo content to contend with!  I refuse to deal with “owned” content that contains such a ridiculous legal disclaimer.  Soon, I will not be able to use/post any pictures, and after that I will strongly consider giving up blogging.  It is really not worth it friends.     YUR

Answer:  SWING BY LATER

(I like it!  A 12 letter answer, decent pun, and there was a bit of a challenge to this one.  I bet a good number of you struggled to get this one.  All of the jumbling was new, to me.  And, we have another new clue word today, in “flange”.  Someone roust ralis95!  I almost thought the word was fangle, as in newfangled, but I thought better.  The answer letter layout was sublime today!  I don’t think it gave away a thing.  Another fine cartoon, but I don’t recognize the logo on the bag.  Is that a hippo?  Other than putt-putt, and driving ranges where you can use their clubs, I haven’t golfed in about 40 years, so I’m clueless.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DISPELL IT

(Now, this is more your classic, stinky pun!  Ya gotta love it!  None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  For whatever reason, I had a tough time getting “openly”.  Maybe, because the jumble came across as a two syllable word?  Nice job, Mr. Hoyt.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  I can see a number of you having some difficulty in solving this.  Although, it was very apparent that the second word had to be IT.  A great Hansel and Gretel-esque cartoon from Mr. Knurek.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  POURED OUT

(Not exactly your standard stinky pun.  Of course, there are outs in baseball, and a hard rain is a pouring rain, and fans do pour out of a stadium/arena, so there is a pretty good connection.  I’m just not crazy about it.

Hoyt is giving ralis95 a break today, as there are no new clue words, to add to his clue word database.  Three of the jumbles were new, with the one for “encore” definitely having been used before.  The answer letter layout was spiffy.  The Knurek cartoon paints the picture fittingly.

I hope Derek Jeter catches a break tonight, with the weather.  I’m a die hard Mets fan, but I always liked the way The Kid handled himself.  The heart of a lion, with a better than average skill set, with possibly the most consistently optimistic attitude in all of baseball that I have ever seen.  He’s been the paragon of grace and humility, and possibly the best ambassador the sport of baseball has ever – and will ever – had/have.  His retirement marks the end of an era.  I wish him well in his post-playing life.  Yeah, Jetes!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
