(Very nice.  A great family scene!  Maybe it’s somebody’s birthday!  Today is my nephew’s birthday.  Happy birthday, Geoffry!  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I had a little trouble with “sennue”!  The answer letter layout was a beautifully cryptic jumble.  No giveaways.  Of course I’m giving you chocolate cake!  Is there any other???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WELLGROOMED

(There’s still time to run, Steven!  Just kidding!  Hey.  He’s got at least a fifty/fifty shot at making it work.  And that beats the near certainty of dying earlier . . . and alone.  We had no new clue words this day, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic jumble!  Kudos to Mr. Hoyt!  The detail in my online printout doesn’t give me a lot to say about the cartoon.  Except that the suit seems to have an interesting pattern.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A beautiful woman delights the eye; a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one, the soul. - Minna Antrim

A beautiful woman delights the eye; a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one, the soul.”   —   Minna Antrim

(Is there such a thing as a “pure” anyone???  I kind of doubt it, but maybe I’m just jaded.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/19/16

Visual Description:  Dish-washing . . . on acid.

YALBW  =  BYLAW,  FARET  =  AFTER,  LOBDYL  =  BOLDLY,  SEEMSA  =  SESAME   —   Giving us:  BLAFERBODSSE

Clue/Question:  The sponge came to life and could now talk.  Too bad he was so – – –

Answer:  SELF-ABSORBED

(Great pun!  I loved it.  There was a new word today.  “Boldly” is not in the ralis95 clue word database.  Our friend will need to update the world famous database.  Three of the jumbles are new, but we’ve seen “faret” before.  The answer letter layout was really great.  And, the cartoon is very clever.  Spongebob Squarepants is a great character.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  COMPACT CAR

(I’ll say!  Nearly a concertina!  No new clue words today, however three of the jumbles did come up as new.  We’ve had “nectac” in the past.  The answer letter layout was a nifty jumble too.  Fun cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/17/16

I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees.  I am going to close my eyes and listen.”   —   Anne Lamott

(“Hectic trees”?  I mean I get it – birds chirping and squirrels scurrying, etc – but I always associate negative connotations to the word “hectic”.  I might have used the word lively, or something.  But, she’s the “pro”, and I just write a blog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/17/16

Visual Description:  Craftsman vs. Crapsman?

AUGGE  =  GAUGE,  LAASI  =  ALIAS,  TRONHW  =  THROWN,  CLASIO  =  SOCIAL   —   Giving us:  AUGALSTHNSOI

Clue/Question:  The carpenter has had his hammer for so long because it was – – –

Answer:  TOUGH AS NAILS

(Tougher, actually.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I didn’t find any of them to be tough though.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, and gave nothing away.  I guess the answer just hit home.  The cartoon hit the nail on the head!  I’ve had one of those cheapo hammers break on me before.  Very frustrating.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
