(Not really a pun, I guess.  More of a semi-homophonic play on words.  But, I liked it.  The clue words were all tried and true, with nice jumblings all around.  I liked the jumbling of “poetry” and “myself” the best.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away today!  Today’s cartoon has the guy looking a little crazed, while the wife looks normal.  Kind of the opposite of the usual.  I love detours!  As long as I’m not in too big a hurry to get where I’m going.  They’re one of the best ways to see new sights.  Be well, do good . . . and enjoy the ride, friends.)   —   YUR

    First — grand puzzler. But I got all turned around. Trying to figure out that diabolical poetry, I put down trophy….why, who knows, that is what I saw and obviously makes no sense. I felt I was correct with “them” as the last word and even thought deter was probably the first word, but there I sat with trophy. I finally saw there was no H in the word–then had to diagram the word out…and saw poetry a few letters down the line. Then I the answer got me for a bit…then deter hit me—again! OK, so yesterday — no problem! Today, my white mass got a full work out due to user confusion!

    I found TEPYOR = POETRY very interesting and somewhat challenging. I saw a lot of small words in it. A buyer for TOYS ‘R’ US could be a TOY REP. Cork of whisky bottle could be RYE TOP. Lotsa possibilities!

    My mind thinks like LindaLee’s mind! 🙂 I did not, however, have problems with POETRY this time, for I think it has been in JUMBLES before. MYSELF really stumped me because of that Y position. Well, thank goodness for GPS, but I still keep maps of NY, NJ, and PA in my car!

    If you were an upstanding citizen or had any understanding about Jumbles you would know that they were standing out in the rain to see an “outstanding” movie!

    I am on last part of puzzle (DISMAY through me for the longest time for some reason,perhaps I am too optimistic? ;0) and I have DONATING stuck in the brain. I fear this one will lead me to no sleep…
