GUPER  =  PURGE,  PICAN  =  PANIC,  TIVERH  =  THRIVE,  SARDIH  =  RADISH   —   Giving us:  PRPCEIH

Clue/Question:  After winning the big hand, he was this.

Answer:  CHIPPER

(I can see some people having a little trouble with this one.  Especially with the youngsters out there.  It’s not all that common an adjective these days.  The answer letter layout didn’t give it away!  I guess you gotta go by the sour mugs on all the losers vs. the smile on the winner’s face.  None of the clue words are new today, but they were all jumbled nicely.  I see some b-ball on the tv screen in the background.  That reminds me that the Univ. of Ohio Bobcats are still in the tournament, after beating Jeff’s Michigan Wolverines – pretty big upset – and the South Florida Bulls.  Due to a major injury to North Carolina’s starting point guard, the Bobcats stand a decent chance to go even further in this thing.  They could be this year’s Cinderella story!  I’m not really into the brackets of March Madness these days.  Does anybody know if it could come down to – theoretically, at least – to the Bobcats of Ohio vs. the Buckeyes of Ohio State???  That would be interesting.  I love rooting against Ohio State!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

GLEFUN  =  ENGULF,  NNOEAY  =  ANYONE,  DUSEND  =  SUDDEN,  VELIYT  =  LEVITY,  OTARUH  =  AUTHOR,  RITHME  =  HERMIT   —   Giving us:  NGNEDDEIHOHET

Clue/Question:  The concert on the mountain . . .

Answer:  ENDED ON A HIGH NOTE

(Where to begin?  All the clue words were expertly jumbled, and each had a certain level of difficulty, perhaps with the exception of “levity”.  It’s a great word, but I could smell that the V would be in the middle, and there’s always a high probability that the Y will come at the end of most jumbled words with Y in them.  I thought we’d seen “engulf” before, but was surprised that we’ve seen it with this very jumbling.  I really liked the jumbling of “sudden”, and as it turns out it is new to the ralis95 clue word database.  “Author” has given me trouble in the past, and this jumbling of it tripped me up for a minute, or so.  Even “hermit” was a little challenging.  The answer letter layout was a work of art.  None of the answer words jump out at you.  If you couldn’t figure out the answer from the cartoon, and the little bit of character verbiage, you would really have to work hard at the answer letters to get the answer.  And, of course the “ON A” was a big help, as well.  Jeff’s cartoon gives you a good sense of the soaring heights, too.  I’d call this a Classic Sunday Jumble!  Be well, do good . . . and look up, my friends.)   —   YUR
