Jumble Spoiler – 05/28/11

Canada Goose

Image via Wikipedia

Visual Description:  A Canada Goose, beating the blitz to Boca . . . by a good four – five months.

EGWDE  =  WEDGE,  DUIFL  =  FLUID,  RFETRE  =  FERRET,  ABNTYO  =  BOTANY   —   Giving us:  EDLIRRBAY

Clue/Question:  The first goose to arrive in Florida for the winter was one.

Answer:  AN EARLY BIRD

(Well, they always say traveling off-peak and out-of-season IS much cheaper!  So, maybe he(?) is not such a silly goose, after all.  The first 3 clue words were fairly simple.  Especially, after I figured out I needed 2 “T”s for fetter, and arrived at “ferret”.  “Botany” was a little more challenging.  Good scrambling all around.  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR

    I had a bit of trouble with “botany.” Actually came up with “Antboy” first which coincidentally works for the circled letters in the Clue/Question.

    I had the solution immediately, and then my hubby and I went crazy with FERRET for at least a half hour. When I finally, got it, I thought I remembered it from a puzzle in the last 6 months! Another beautiful day that I shall seize like Ella Maillart!

    Yeah. Not in the same order, but you DO get the needed letters, Keith. Sounds like you were reading some old comic books before attempting this Jumble!

    Wow, Les! Even your husband had trouble with FERRET? That is surprising. He was probably concentrating too hard!
