pocket billiards (pool) table. This image is misnamed – what is shown is not a snooker table! Tirada com o meu nokia 5140 😉 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Collecting for a proper snooker surface.

DOORE  =  RODEO,  XROPY  =  PROXY,  OUTPOR  =  UPROOT,  WOWILL  =  WILLOW   —   Giving us:  DEPOTILO

Clue/Question:  When it came time to raise money for a new billiards table, they did this.

Answer:  POOLED IT

(No new clue words, today.  I liked the jumblings of “rodeo” and especially “uproot”.  I think anytime you put out a jumbled word, that looks very close to an actual word, it makes it a little more difficult to un-jumble.  Both “willow” and “proxy” seemed fairly obvious.  Very nice answer letter layout, but there wasn’t much of a challenge for today’s answer.  I don’t imagine many of you having a hard time getting this one.  Just easing us into a Monday!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Today might have been a better day for the Mount Rushmore jumble, as it’s the anniversary of the day Abraham Lincoln’s head was dedicated there.   —   YUR

    Stallon,

    I looked, and and I don’t think I have the ability to Unsubscribe you. Only you do. You had to click on the “Subscribe” button, and I’m guessing that now that you are a subscriber, there should be a button (the same button?) for you to unsubscribe.

    Can some other subscriber confirm, for me, that there is an “Unsubscribe” button? — YUR

    I must be a subscriber, as I get daily mails about both puzzles, and don’t see an unsubscribe facility. I guess Stallon will have to permanently change his email address. Wonder if the Kingston Trio could come up with a song about this.

    All I DO know is that if you’re NOT a subscriber there is a feature on the upper right hand portion of the page, right under the heading/painting, that reads: “Email Subscription” followed by a little blather, then below that: “Sign me up”.

    Reason/logic tells me that if you ARE a subscriber, there should be a feature in the same general vicinity that should allow you to *Unsubscribe*.

    A number of subscribers HAVE left on their own (my subscriber count fluctuates), so there has to be something out there, friends!

    I was unintentionally the Anonymous post.

    I went to an actual email, as distinguished from the actual blog, and at the bottom was “Unsubscribe or change your email settings at ” and an appropriate link that leads to a quite reasonable “Blogs I Follow” page. So Stallon has to work from one of the now-unwanted Emails rather than from your actual web site.

    I hope Stallon read that! Thanks, Art!
