(Great Saturday morning pun!  All of today’s clue words were warm and fuzzy old favorites.  I remember when warm and fuzzy was a popular buzz-phrase in the business world.  I’m not getting a warm and fuzzy from this.  Of course I wanted to slap the person, but, through great restraint, I refrained.  Surprisingly, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was swell.  The cartoon does a great job of setting the mood.  Such a happy looking couple, in an idyllic, rustic setting.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yesterday’s Jumble generated a ton of queries, so I guess it was tougher than many of us thought.   —   YUR

    This crossword puzzle maven immediately put in ANEAR for the second word, and consequently couldn’t deduce the otherwise-easy answer.

    You are not supposed to use anagrams. Anear is an anagram of arena and this through me off. Shame on you.

    Anear is considered archaic. The spellcheck in WordPress does not even recognize it. It might work in crosswords and scrabble, but it doesn’t qualify as an ordinary word.

    I had never heard of ANEAR, so I didn’t have any problem on today’s Jumble. For the final answer, the phrase ‘takes the chill out’ in the cartoon immediately suggested WARM as the first word. I figured the second word should be AND. Unscrambling the remaining letters gave TOASTY for the third word. It took me a few seconds to see this word, though.

    I got the answer right away when looking over the whole puzzle. Fusion took the longest to get.

    WARM AND TOASTY was pretty obvious, but I must admit, in our household we always said WARM AS TOAST!
