Visual Description:  An over involved chrono-enthusiast and upset spouse.

SMTUY  =  MUSTY,  YXTIS  =  SIXTY,  BNELBI  =  NIBBLE,  CAFORT  =  FACTOR   —   Giving us:  MUTSITIBEATO

Clue/Question:  When he put the finishing touches on his book about clocks, his wife said this.

Answer:  ITS ABOUT TIME

(So many letters . . . so little challenge!  USUALLY a twelve letter answer means you’re in for an interesting proposition.  Usually.  Today, with the wife’s face and comments, and all the clocks in the room, you didn’t even need to read the Clue/Question.  None of today’s clue words were new, but they were all well jumbled.  The answer letter layout was beautiful!  But overall, this Jumble just kinda whacks you with the hammer of obviousity.  Sometimes a twelve letter answer means a grand slam, other times it’s just a weak grounder back to the pitcher.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    YUR:

    What happened to your FB post today? It was there one minute with the Jumble spoiler and gone the next. The cryptoquote spoiler is still there – at least the last time I looked.

    I don’t know why I couldn’t get NIBBLE! I ended up backing into it. I even had the BLE at the end. I think I was seeing the BLE separately and not the BB together. Very bad day yesterday still has me in a fog. Annual exam of a certain part of my body didn’t go as planned, so docs ordered one more test to make sure I’m ok. Don’t ya just hate when that happens???? I was doing the Sunday Jumble in the office, and what two words popped up? AFRAID and HEALTH. I knew I should have left right then and there! Ha!

    @ ralis95,

    It’s still there, bud!

    @ Lesley,

    With your great sense of humor I believe you’ll be able to get through anything, kid!

    Thanks everybody! The Jumble keeps me sane! I’ve come to printing out old Jumbles for doctors’ offices and airplane rides! Ha! I’ll report back in mid May on my “been there, done that” medical stuff!

    @ Lesley — yes, I hate that too….makes you feel so alone in that little room!!

    I resolved the puzzle answer right quickly (had trouble with nibble too!!!), but the answer didn’t pop for me from the puzzle–figured time was in there–but that was about it.
