(Such a deal?!?!  My wife does this ALL the time.  I’ve never seen her finish an omelette in one sitting.  It always comes home, to make for another meal.  Even though it was a relatively short answer it was fairly challenging.  A nice pun.  There were no new clue words today.  However, three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen “sopepo” before.  I thought that both “tepur” and “acsvan” were very good jumbles.  And, I was a little out of it this morning.  When I went to write “young” I started writing “nug”  before catching myself!  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble, that gave nothing away.  The cartoon’s dialog helped set things up well.  The word SAVORY is so heavily used these days!  Or, maybe I’m just exposed to too many cooking shows?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This one made me ponder, UR, particularly because my initial (strong) impression was OVER EASY – too many letters – or maybe the second word would be OVA. I was definitely thinking eggy. I guess I stumbled because I seldom “save” any restaurant food to take home …

    SAVE-ORY?? I didn’t see that one coming! Even after I had all the letters I thought about for several hours before it finally dawned on me. ERUPT, I’m sure we have seen it before but it took me a really long time to get it. I went from a 1 minute solve to a several hour solve the next!

    Great Jumble, even though the final answer was only seven letters. I had to think for a second for ERUPT. CANVAS used to be hard for me but it is on one of my tough word lists and I can now see it. For the final answer, I also initially thought that one of the words would be EASY but then saw the word SALE in the clue, so I quickly changed it to SAVE and the second part became obvious then. Great dialog too, with “keep some for lunch” lending itself to a brilliant pun on the word SAVE.

    This turned out to be more difficult for many of you than I thought. There were plenty of queries on: “tepur”, “acsvan” and even “nugyo”, as well as the final answer. — YUR
