Answer:  GRAND PRIZE

(I was able to get today’s answer without even reading the clue/question, or even really looking at the picture.  I’m sure I must have processed a glimpse of it, but just knowing that the answer was two 5-letter words, and seeing the answer letters, was enough for me today.  This doesn’t happen often, but sometimes you just get a good feeling.  All the clue words were tried and true.  Three of the jumblings were new for me, with only the one for “rigid” showing as being used before.  All things considered, I think both sets of clue words being switched would have made for a better answer letter layout.  Splendid cartoon though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It was almost too easy, wasn’t it? I, too, solved it without un-jumbling the letters. But then later, when I did do the jumbles – I had to back into NEGATE, when the solution didn’t jump right out like it did for the other three words. BTW – your copy of the Word Sort for the “ralis95 Jumbles Words Database” was sent to your email address this afternoon. Look for it.

    AGENTE was great jumble, wasn’t it? I got your email, boss. Thank you, kindly. I haven’t been this up to date in quite a while. You da man! — YUR

    Do remember, please, that I still don’t get the Sunday Jumbles in my paper, and any new clue words on Sunday are not generally included – unless you let me know, somehow, about them.

    Does that mean that you’re NOT a Subscriber of this illustrious blog??? Of all people??? I’m quite injured! — YUR

    Good Gravy! Where did you ever acquire this propensity for jumping to conclusions? Of course, I am an avid personal fan of your blog – but do I visit every day? — no, especially on the weekends when I don’t have a puzzle in the local paper to solve, or verify. And lately, as you know, I’ve been up to my a– in writing and editing my new 75,000 word paranormal action adventure — so I haven’t had much free time.

    I know how busy you are, boss. My point about being a Subscriber is that an annoying little auto-email goes out to all Subscribers each time I post something. So, even if you don’t do the Sunday puzzles the little email notifications are hitting your inbox . . . or Spam folder. — YUR 😉

    Well, I’ll not be winning $1,000,000 on Wheel of Fortune, but I did work todays puzzler! In my world that counts for something!

    These are rambling type thoughts I have when working the puzzler. Glaze, wow, what a good word. Glad I went for the “ze” ending right away because I might could have been stuck on that one. Rigid…did’t we have that recently..why would I think I’d remember that?? Ohhhhhh, profit, I see it now. Agente isn’t a word??? OK, run it backward. Nope, nothing. Mmmm, guess I’ll just diagram ETNEGA out. Let’s see…TNEGAT…..Bing, bing, bing…Negate! WOW, good one.

    And so, it goes daily like that. I love these puzzlers!

    Thanks guyz! Unc!

    Glad to see you have a process, LindaLee! I just rely on being an idiom savant!

    You know, LindaLee, the perfessor, ralis95, issued me an unfinished draft of his new paranormal action adventure book, “Lyda”, a couple of months ago. It is riveting! I can hardly wait for it to come out in print, so I can see how it ends. Not sure what kind of books you like, but I think it will have broad appeal. I might argue that I am – sorta – mentioned in it.

    — YUR 🙂

    Whoa Unc, Idiom Savant and Editor. You do have a way with words!

    No, I didn’t know ralis95 was penning a book. If the paranormal books aren’t too scary, I’m good. However, I would want to support our ralis95 and would love to get the book. And, I’ll be looking for your cameo.

    I have many, many process for working the puzzlers. I just don’t like throwing in the towel until I’ve tried everything I can to see the word/answer.

    I am gone again…may get behind!

    Y’all have fun. LL

    Linda, Unc – My books are always intense, but believeable, full of action and adventure. “Lyda” is now in the publishing process and should be released in early 2015. Here’s a quick summary: Compelled by churning memories of a forgotten past, Lyda seeks to unravel her ancestral ties to the extraterrestrial Anunnaki of the Sumerian civilization of ancient times. With the help of an investigative writer, a former Detective, an ex-Army Remote Viewer and a Clairvoyant, she pursues her quest from the Ziggurats of the Tigris Valley to urban Los Angeles, in an unfolding drama of intrigue, deception and conspiracy that threatens the ancestral proof she discovers.

    Uhh . . . what ancient city in the Tigris Valley??? — YUR

  12. 12 ralis95 October 6, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    Uhh . . . “Ur,” of course. Good one, YUR.

  13. 13 LindaLee October 7, 2014 at 10:30 pm

    OMWord Ralis! What an intro. Anyone reading your summary will have to read the book. Thank you for posting. LL

  14. 14 LindaLee October 7, 2014 at 10:32 pm

    OMG, as I hit send, UR hit me! 🙂 LL

    Linda: Time to set the record straight — YUR is pulling your leg (and since I know him personally to be a ladies man, it must be a great leg) Ur is an actual ancient city of the Sumerians in Mesopotamia. It is located in what is now called Irag and the Ziggurat there was restored by Saddam as a tourist attraction – until the US Army shot it up during the invasion. It could turn out that our YUR is somehow an extraterrestrial Sumerian, which could explain his continuing poweress with solving the Jumbles!

    Ralis – you are so kind to give me the low down! And you are a hoot! LL
