(I guess you can’t spell prune without a pun!  There’s a lot to like about today’s Jumble.  There were no new clue words.  Stand down, ralis95!  But, all of the jumblings seemed new.  I really liked the jumbling of “polish”.  Placing the P and the H next to each other kind of leads you to believe that the word has a PH in it.  Very tricky, Hoyt.  And, the jumble for “lounge” makes you think that it could be a two, or even three, syllable word.  More good work.  The answer letter layout was also good, because it looks like it could be a word unto itself.  The cartoon conveys a hot summer’s day, with the bright sun in the sky, and the man in the straw hat.  The woman is holding a pair of pruning shears.  Although, they do look more like hedge clippers.  For you kids out there, who always wondered where prunes came from . . . now you know!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
