A flat tire on a Mercury Villager van.

Visual Description:  A silly stranded damsel scenario.


Clue/Question:  When she didn’t have the right equipment to change her flat tire, she found a . . .


(I can already hear the moans, groans and gripes about this answer!  Should there be a hyphen between LUMBER and JACK?  Should there be quotation marks somewhere?  And, I’m sure some of you – engineer types – are going to complain:  Even IF he and his makeshift lever could lift the car, how could he possibly keep it in place long enough to change the tire?  I suppose she could do the changing, while he – somehow – keeps the car elevated.  But, from the drawing, it doesn’t look like she would even know what to do with a lug wrench.  Hmmm!  With no “bonus clues”, with very good answer letter scrambling, and for the reasons above, I think that this one might have given a lot of you a good bit of trouble!  I’ll know tomorrow, when I see the final visit tally for today.  All the clue words were well scrambled, too.  Maybe some new words, ralis95?  But, none of them took me more than a couple of seconds to get.  And, I’ve got a nagging headache this morning!  Be well, my friends.  And, try to do good . . . like our friend, Mr. Lumberjack!)   —   YUR

PS.  I meant the scenario is silly, not the damsel.  Please, ladies.  Hold those cards and letters!   —   YUR

PPS.  I could really go for a Fat Tire (Amber Ale) right about now!      YUR
