Visual Description:  Sad sack in-patient, looking for just a little rest!

ROTTHA  =  THROAT,  TENNIY  =  NINETY,  YEGRES  =  GEYSER,  MIFRLY  =  FIRMLY,  REVFIY  =  VERIFY,  RATNOY  =  NOTARY   —   Giving us:  TTNTESEMLERINTA

(Very nice Sunday Jumble!  Great jumbling of the clue words.  I thought that “ninety”, “geyser” and “notary” were nicely challenging.  And, I always have a little trouble getting “ninety”.  I didn’t need to back into any of the words, but they weren’t a cinch!  It’s looking like both “firmly” and “notary” are going to be new additions to the ralis95 clue word database.  I thought the answer letter layout gave nothing away.  Don’t know if alpha order would have helped, because that’s not my thing.  Nor is all the consonants then all the vowels, or vice versa.  Just write ’em as I see ’em!  Great cartoon!  Take care, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  Did you guys know that there are cold water geysers out there?  I didn’t, until fairly recently.  Learned it on a travel blog.   —   YUR

The easiest way to convince my kids that they don’t need something is to get it for them.”   —   Joan Collins

(Easy if you’ve got deep pockets maybe!  What was easy was this puzzle.  I had the easiest way to – and then either by or my – then that they don’t needto – and either them or then without even putting pen to paper.  When they’re loaded with fairly obvious th words it’s easy to just kind of see them.  This is our first Joan Collins quote, since I’ve been doing these spoilers.  As a matter of fact, it’s our first Joan anyone!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  You know me, folks.  Lots of Joan Collins photos to pick from.  But given my druthers, I always choose cheesecake!   —   YUR
