(Not the easiest Jumble in a while!  We had one new clue word today, in “daybed”.  A new compound word for the ralis95 clue word database.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was very impressive.  It took me about ten seconds to realize the first word was MADE.  By writing out the remaining ALTABDOSO I was able to figure out the pun, BOATLOADS.  Great cartoon!  Classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I immediately thought that too, Mike, but then I remembered that “anear” is considered archaic. Even as I typed it here WordPress is underlying it in red. Arena is the only recognized word for the jumble neaar. — YUR

    Tough, tough Jumble! COSMOS took me a few seconds, and DAYBED has been the hardest word in a LONGGGGG time. It took me more than two minutes to figure out. I couldn’t back into it either since the final answer wasn’t obvious to me. Speaking of which, I thought right away that MADE was the first word, but for some reason I kept trying to end the second word with “ED”, without realizing that the first word was in past tense. That got me nowhere, of course. Then, I tried SOLD for the first word, but was caught in the “ED” ending again. All this while, I was thinking “BOAT” should come somewhere in the answer, but trying to end the second word with “ED” was complicating matters. Finally, I decided to try BOATLOADS for the second word, and lo and behold, the first word became clear – MADE! Duh!
