Visual Description:  Eye strain on the airplane.

MMOBA  =  MAMBO,  NLGUC  =  CLUNG,  ROBUWR  =  BURROW,  SGITTH  =  TIGHTS   —   Giving us:  OLNUOITS

Clue/Question:  Her eyes had become dry and itchy, but luckily the person next to her had this.

Answer:  THE SOLUTION

(“A little bit of Monica in my life, a little bit of Erica by my side, a little bit of Rita is all I need, a little bit of Tina is what I see . . .”  Thank you, Lou Bega!  Great clue words, all nicely jumbled.  I had the most trouble coming up with “mambo”.  They don’t do this one on Dancing With The Stars!  Maybe because it’s more of a hybrid dance.  Kind of a cross between the rumba and the cha-cha.  I had no problem with “clung” or “burrow”.  And, I think even the most hard-nosed purist is going to give a pass to “tights”.  As an article of clothing that’s what they’re called!  Great answer letter layout, and a great cartoon.  Overall, a very good puzzle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  No comments from Saturday’s Jumble Spoiler/comments???  C’mon, guys.  Don’t make me beg.      YUR

    Me too,sen-d! But, just so we’re clear, I don’t write ’em. I just solves ’em, and post the answers for other Jumble enthusiasts to see. Your sending the answer, via comment, is all well and good as long as I’ve already posted the spoiler. I’ve had other visitors who submitted the answer prior to my posting the spoiler, and I’ve had to *disapprove* their comment. I take it as good natured enthusiasm, but I try to discourage it, because this is my shtick. There *are* some rare occasions where I’ll actually ask for help, but they are few and far between. But, I’m very happy to see a new guy jumping right into the comment pool!

    What the heck is going on with adding an “s” to simply to make “tight” plural!

    I kid. I kid.

    Great puzzle today. For some reason, I kept inserting different letters into the clues. I kept seeing “mamba” on the first clue, and initially put “borrow” instead of “burrow,” which didn’t help either.

    ahhh, bows (~_~)humble, I apologize, I will most certainly be aware of this next time, thank you! I am rnjoying your posts.

    Ha, Keith, you make me laugh! As for the dreaded TIGHTS (I gave them up years ago!), I think you can’t have just one TIGHT. That would be just one leg of pantyhose? I too thought about this word, and I came to the conclusion that it has to have an S at the end even though it is one object. We must have been going through the same thought process on the other words, also. BURROW? BORROW? This stuff makes me cheat sometimes. Also, I’ve been backing into way too many words lately…lazy!
