Jumble Spoiler – 08/13/11

A Gerbil.

Visual Destruction:  Bride and groom with their financial fancies.


Clue/Question:  When the economist and the banker got married, they hoped theirs would prosper.

Answer:  MERGER

(Two easy clue words, and two more challenging ones!  It took me a little longer to get “gerbil” than it did “inform”, but both were fun.  I wonder if our friend, Lesley, had any trouble getting “inform”???  Great scrambling all around, and a classic Jumble scenario.  Enjoy the weekend, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

    Haaa! Not much trouble with INFORM! It took me about 6 tries, and words that start with vowels aren’t much of a problem for me anymore, but I am struggling with consonants that come in the middle of words unexpectedly or consonants that make different sounds than usual. GERBIL I had to back into after I got MERGER. The “G” in GERBIL was an issue for me because it did not have the “hard” G sound like it does in the word GO. Full moon again tonight, I hope, because I missed it last night! Enjoy the weekend.

    It was glorious last night, kid! What I hoped to see was the Perseid meteor shower, but they kept saying the bright moonlight was going to obscure it, so I didn’t even attempt to watch. Dumb. Tonight it might be a little overcast, because they’re calling for rain for tomorrow. Good luck.
