GOIOL  =  IGLOO,  MEHET  =  THEME,  GLITHP  =  PLIGHT,  TTRISH  =  THIRST   —   Giving us:  GOHEPHHIS

Clue/Question:  When it came to his new hot-air balloon designs, he had . . .

Answer:  HIGH HOPES

(“Everyone knows an ant . . . can’t . . . move a rubber tree plant!  But, he’s got hi-i-gh hopes!”  Cute Sinatra song, from the movie “A Hole in the Head“.  Takes place in Miami, and it has a top-notch cast.  I haven’t seen it in years, but it was very memorable.

Nice jumbling of the clue words, today.  I got both “igloo” and “theme” immediately, but I had to think a bit to get “thirst”.  Surprisingly, I saw “plight” right away too, but it’s actually a new clue word to the Jumble.  ralis95 will have to update his clue word database, once again!  I really liked the answer letter layout, too.  The answer did not come to me right away.  I didn’t struggle a lot, but I did have to give it some thought.

I was away for the weekend, so I just finished the Sunday puzzles.  I was able to get the Saturday ones up by Sunday night, just beating this morning’s answers by a few hours.  I’m a little behind the eight ball, so I won’t be posting the Sunday spoilers until tomorrow.  I thank you guys for your patience.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
