Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 08/28/11

Visual Description:  Golfing hubby returning to find his overwrought weeding wifey.


Clue/Question:  Gardening all day resulted in her . . .


(Very detailed cartoon today!  Things always look different when I print them out, as opposed to how they look in the newspaper.  Some very nicely scrambled clue words.  I probably had the most trouble with “flawed”, and then a little less with both “leeway” and “stormy”.  Great timing on using that word, guys!  The answer letter layout gave nothing away.  I actually considered GETTING before realizing I needed another T, but then I immediately realized the word was GROWING.  Good job, guys.  Up in my neck of Rockland County, NY I experienced minimal damage . . . so far, from Hurricane Irene.  The rain has stopped, but the wind has picked up again, so there’s always the risk of more trees coming down as a result of the ground being so saturated and the root systems being compromised.  We did not lose power and our cable never failed, so we were very fortunate.  In the distance I can hear one of those industrial strength tree branch/wood chippers, so it sounds like the town, and utility, workers are on the job!  I would not say this was much ado about nothing, but I also wouldn’t discount that there was an ulterior purpose for all this news coverage and government involvement.  Too big and heavy an issue to get into at this point, so we’ll leave it alone for now.  Be safe and be well, friends.  Stay off the roads, if you can.)   —   YUR

    Thanks for the spoiler: I was rushed on Sunday and couldn’t get the final solution. It’s been bugging me since!

    I finally got to this puzzle, and did not have much trouble with clue words except for FLAWED, also! The FL sound is just just not a sound I like, so I did not consider it for the start of the word. The detail in the puzzle was wonderful, and I could especially relate to the tired woman and the golf clubs! The garden gnome was a funny addition! I kept thinking GETTING also, and finally I gave up and checked this site for the solution! Thanks, YUR!
