(Very clevah!  Three new clue words to add to the database, folks!  I was a little surprised that “batter” is new, but I kinda figured that “verge” and “wring” – great word – were new.  Everything jumbled nicely, and the answer letter layout gave nothing away.  The cartoon sets up the pun very nicely.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Fairly easy puzzle today. I just loved SIMILE. It reminded me of my teaching days when kids would write the corniest of similes in their writing pieces. We had to work on that quite often. Enjoy this spring-like weather for the holidays!

    Never heard of Valley Ave or Bangor however subtracting STREET only left the 5 letters to spell Maine. I didn’t really get the pun until I logged on to this website. It’s probably near the bottom of the list for jumbles I’ve seen over the years.

    Then your list and my list would differ greatly, sir or madam. May I ask, are you British, or some other English speaking, but non-American person? Because, I can understand not knowing Valley Ave. I was not familiar with it myself, having never been to Bangor. But, never hearing of Bangor is surprising to me, unless of course you are a non-American.

    We all have our strengths and weaknesses. And, we all have our preferences. I’m just glad that this site was able to be of some assistance to you.

    Thanks, for checking in, and taking the time to comment!
