Visual Description:  A couple hoping they’ve struck real estate treasure.


Clue/Question:  They bought the subdivision parcel because they thought it had this.


(Not all that tough, but not bad.  I breezed through all of the clue words.  None of them appeared to be anything new, but some good scrambling was going on.  The answer letter layout was top notch!  But, I felt like there was a little verbal overkill, with the realtor using the word “appreciate” and the wifey saying “under-priced”.  That kind of screamed “value”, to me.  Also, the picture of the vacant/available lot, along with the clue/question’s use of “subdivision parcel” pretty much gives you the other key word in the answer.  The drawing is funny, because the house pretty near completion, kind of looks like a barn/part of a farm.  With the irony being that this is very likely one-time farm land that they’re building on.  And, don’t get me started on this issue!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This one gave me a little bit of a hard time. It definitely doesn’t help when I don’t properly read the scrambled letters. I had “battle” for the third entry. Only after too-much time spent trying to work the resulting letters into the puzzle answer did I realize that this scramble had two Ls, not two Ts.

    Similar thing happened to me just this morning, with the 8/19/11 Jumble. I caught it quickly though.

    I thought BALLET was BEATLE like the group! I had to cheat to see BALLET. By this point in time I can work this puzzle pretty easily, but yesterday, I even struggled with FLUTE. I have not been sleeping well lately! Nightmares! Therefore, foggy brain…

    Nightmares aren’t good, kid! What’s going on in your life to bring these on?
