Visual Description:  Jeff reliving his glory days?


Clue/Question:  For the graduating college cheerleader this game was her . . .


(Well . . . “hurrah” is a cheer.  It’s just not the kind of cheer you hear from a college cheerleader.  You don’t even hear the “rah” very often anymore.  The old stereotype of:  RAH! RAH! SIS-BOOM-BAH! doesn’t really fly these days.  That was probably born in the 1920s.  Slightly before your uncle’s time.  Hurrah is more the For he’s a jolly good fellow kind of cheer.  Hurrah is also a little more British.  Americans are more fond of Hurray.  Which makes it kind of strange that the WordPress spell-check feature is questioning hurrah.  WordPress is out of England, so you’d think it would allow it without question.  However, their spell-check even flags the word WordPress!  So, go figure!

Good clue words.  I like “fathom”.  I don’t use that word enough.  I can’t fathom why?!?!  Surprisingly “audio” is not on the ralis95 clue word database.  The answer letter layout was only fair, today.  The “last” is spread out pretty well, but I could see the “hurrah” pretty clearly.  Now, gee.  What is that school that Jeff went to?  Was it Maryland?  Minnesota?  Mississippi?  Missouri?  Montana?  Did I leave anybody out?)   —   YUR

PS.   A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mr. Gene Wilder!  He is one of my favorite actors, who has been in some of the funniest/most entertaining movies of all time!  Enjoy your day, Gene.  (I can’t believe you’re actually older than my mom!)   —   YUR

    AUDIO was an excellent Jumble word! 4 vowels and one consonant really made it challenging. I am locked in my office by my husband because it is/was such a mess. I haven’t Jumbled in awhile because I couldn’t find the keyboard. Ha! Missed you guys!

    It’s always great when you drop in, kid!

    Hmmm! Does AUDIO hold this unique distinction? Are there any other five letter words, that are not medical/scientific terms, in the English language, with four vowels and a single consonant? Right now, I can’t think of any.

    Can any of the readers answer this?

    I’m not sure why my comment looks weird. It was supposed to say: aerie, aurae, eerie, queue That’s all I can think of at the moment : )

    Leave it to Angie! You rock, lady! I couldn’t think of any, and 3 of your 4 are pretty common. Only aurae is a little out there for me. I guess I’m not as smart as I thought!

    Thanks, Angie!
