Clue/Question:  What the fitness instructor turned into.

Answer:  A PERSONAL TRAINER

(Pretty easy, for a Sunday.  I like all the clue words, but none of them gave me any trouble.  Good scrambling of the answer letters, but I didn’t struggle at all with the answer.  Maybe I was just in the zone this morning.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Try to stay warm!)   — YUR

    Hi ya! How come the Jumble that I got out of the paper on Sunday is different from the one on-line! This has happened a few times! I’m confused!

    By “on-line” do you mean here? My spoiler(s)? I dunno, kid. My newspaper is The Journal News. It’s in the Gannett family of newspapers. What newspaper do you get? Is yours with 6 clue words? I’ve seen different crypto-word games before, but there’s only one jumble, as far as I know. Are you in some remote area? Maybe your Sunday ones are a week delayed, or something?

    I’m stumped.

    Just yesterday — nine and a half years later (to the day!) — I found the January 23, 2011, Jumble in a pile of newspaper puzzles clipped “to solve later.” I was able to whip through the six starting words in thirty seconds or so — but got absolutely STUCK on the final answer. I was able to pull “PARTNER” out for the second word — but then the remaining letters didn’t make anything for the first word; I was able to pull out “INSOLENT” for the first word – but then the remaining letters didn’t make anything for the second! There are the letters for “NOSE” and “NOSIER,” but those are too short. I’m appalled, and ashamed, to admit that I never saw “TRAINER” -or- “PERSONAL”. I don’t know whether this means I’m getting old, or is just a consequence of having never been part of “fitness culture” so that the term “personal trainer” simply never entered my mind…

    Oh well.

    None of this, of course, will stop a lifelong Jumble fan.

    Without the original cartoon, and it’s dialog, it’s awfully hard for me to remember anything that far back, Chris. But, I’m glad you finally got around to solving it. Are there other ancient Jumbles in that pile of newspapers??? Glad to hear you’re a lifelong Jumble fan! — YUR
