(Alrighty then!  We have two brand new clue words today, in “skimpy” – skimp is already in there – and in “mullet”!  I hope you’re reading this, ralis95!  And, I thought two words, in particular, were jumbled superbly.  I loved the jumbling of both “encore” and “mullet”!  I’ll give “smooch” an honorable mention.  I thought today’s answer letter layout was extremely cryptic.  Just the way I like it.  And, the cartoon does a great job of telling the whole story.  A fine Sunday Jumble, indeed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Thanks YUR, for the new words. Good to have you keep me up-to-date since the puzzle doesn’t appear in my Sunday newspaper. Nice new pic of you on your FB page – ever the handsome young man!

    A grand puzzle. I thought encore was totally diabolical in it’s simplicity! Smooch could have been, but I found it when doodling around. And mullet 🙂 Good job all!

    Call me pitiful. I took till Friday to complete this Jumble. My husband actually came up with the solution. I hope all is well with the Jumble gang.

    Lesley, you are not alone! That’s usually how I get so far behind, I refuse to let a puzzle beat me!
