Clue/Question: Casper’s date for the Halloween party was his – – –
Answer: “GHOUL“ FRIEND
(They used this gag in my granddaughter’s classroom this morning! We’re out visiting my stepson and his family this weekend. Sorry about missing yesterday’s spoilers. Maybe I’ll get to them later next week. I’m doing today’s from Arkansas Online, and I’m not printing them out. Should make the Cryptoquote interesting! Looks like no new clue words today. Great answer letter layout, and a fun Halloween cartoon. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: He didn’t want to change the flat because he didn’t have the – – –
Answer: PROPER ATTIRE
(Not a bad pun! You need the proper attire to change a tire. All, but the jumble for “expert”, were new to me. I’m not sure about the clue words. I’ll check on those later. The answer letter layout was splendiforous! I don’t think it gave anything away. The cartoon is pretty spiffy. Be well and do good, friends. The spoilers might be a little spotty the next few days. Nobody hold their breath!) — YUR

Clue/Question: The outfielders started their own band and played – – -
Answer: CATCHY SONGS
(I thought this answer was pretty tough to get. For a couple of minutes, I thought I was going to have to put it up for you guys to bail me out. It finally dawned on me that the second word had to be “songs”. With the leftovers, I came up with “catchy”. Decent pun. All the jumbling was new to me. And, we seem to have another new clue word for the ralis95 clue word database, in “gotten”. Plain old “gotten”! The answer letter layout sure didn’t give anything away. It was a super jumble. The cartoon was rockin’ the house! Game 6 is going on as I post this! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Answer: “CHILLY“ COOKOFF
(Nice pun. We have all new jumbles today, and one new clue word in “frill”. Keeping ralis95 busy on the road to 4000. Super job on the answer letter layout. A nicely cryptic jumble. And, a marvelous cartoon. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: After the student disrupted the class, the teacher – – -
Answer: TAUGHT HIM A LESSON
(Wow! A 16 – letter answer! That’s pretty big. Maybe not the best of puns, but it was alright. A bunch of new jumbles today, and even a new clue word for the ralis95 clue word database, in “meekly”. The answer letter layout was a thing of beauty. Especially, considering the misdirection of the cartoon and it’s dialogue. The answer had nothing to do with bones or skeletons. I liked Jeff’s personal touch, of the one student wearing an Andrew Luck jersey. He is one mega-talented QB. I wish the Bills had him. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: The astronomer was very good at his work. He did a – – -
Answer: “STELLAR“ JOB
(Excellent pun! Nothing cheap or stinky about it. There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new. This is one of the best answer letter layouts David L. Hoyt has ever come up with, in my opinion. It’s a fantastic jumble that doesn’t give a thing away. Love the cartoon too. Besides the great telescope, and the three scientists, Jeff snuck in an odd, but rather innocuous, smiling bimbo in the background. Great job, guys! Finally caught up with the spoilers, guys. But, I’ll probably miss some spoilers next weekend too. Fair warning. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: Getting hit in the head with the can of soda hurt a lot, in spite of it being a – – -
Answer: SOFT DRINK
(Ahh! The perils of the picnic. No new clue words, but all of the jumbles appear to be new. For some reason I had to back into “chorus”. I guess it was just a good jumble. The answer letter layout is nicely cryptic . . . another fine jumble. Super cartoon. It’s funny how different parts of the country have different collective names for soft drinks. I grew up calling it “pop”, but for the last 30 + years I’ve called it “soda”. Some places in the South say “Coke” for just about all soft drinks. What are you used to calling your “sody pop”, pilgrims??? Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
