Answer:  IN MISERY

(I love movie themed Jumbles!  And, this was a very memorable movie.  Kathy Bates’ character was completely Cocoa Puffs in it!  The kind of scary that you just don’t expect.  I didn’t realize that it was directed by Rob Reiner.  He really has an impressive body of work as a director.  He has come a long way since his days as “Meathead”, on All In The Family.  If you’ve never seen Misery, or don’t remember it, or just want to see it again, you should rent it.  Just be prepared for one of the biggest cringe scenes you’ve ever seen!

No new clue words today.  But all the jumbling was both challenging and new, to me.  Great job on the answer letter layout too.  Great likenesses in the cartoon, especially Rob.  The cartoon does a great job in setting up the pun.  Are you tired of me saying “great” yet?  Too bad!  Have a great weekend, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

Kentucky Derby

PS.  It’s the first Saturday in May!  Enjoy the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.  The alliterative California Chrome is the favorite.  I believe he happens to be a chestnut, but I’m no expert.  There’s an Uncle in today’s race!  His name is Uncle Sigh.  He’s a long shot speed horse that might take an early lead, assuming he gets a good break from the gate.  But, he’s not expected to finish in the money.  Still, you never know.  Enjoy!     YUR
