Answer:  LIGHTEN THE MOOD

(I did NOT get the answer today!  I’m definitely a little lazy with these things.  If I don’t get it right off the bat, I don’t always have the patience to get the final answer.  It’s rare, but fortunately I have a daughter who likes the Jumble, and her boyfriend, who is going to be a doctor.  He got the answer!  I did think that the middle word was going to be THE!  But, I was thinking that the answer was going to have something to do with the guy losing his hair!  That’s why I was getting nowhere.  Did anyone else have trouble solving this one???

No new clue words today.  But, five of the jumbles came up as new.  They’ve used “senlos” before.  I thought “sconeh” was a pretty good jumble.  Obviously, I thought the answer letter layout was excellent!  It gave me nothing, to help me see the pun.  The cartoon was good, but the extra woman kind of threw me.  Was she the wife’s sister?  Mother?  A friend?  Was she even necessary???  I don’t know.  I did like the angry looking cat though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR, it took some time to figure out ‘chosen’ and also the Jumble solution. I thought the middle word was going to be ‘his’. Had to put the puzzle down, come back to it awhile later, scooby around other possiblities for ‘his’…finally, eureka, there was the solution! It’s terrific you have such a smart team (daughter and her boyfriend) at your fingertips, I could use them often!

    For the answer, I got the ‘THE’! 🙂 Unfortunately, that was the only answer word I got. Didn’t get THEORY or LESSON, so I needed to get the answer to back in. The letters O, D, G,M, N, and I wasn’t going to cut it. 😦

    Hi! I finally gave this puzzle a final try today. No go! I also got “the” for the middle word, but the rest….forget it! Thanks to your daughter and BF! MANNER was hard for me for some reason. I never noticed the cat! Hahaha! I also pondered who that other lady was! Moral support? Ha!

    It looks like this was difficult for a lot of us regulars, Lesley! — YUR

    Hey all! I actually got the answer. But, I boldly went with THE and stuck with it as the middle word. I was lucky there.. After I took those letters out of all of the clue letters I saw MOOD. So I took the remaining letters to see if I could find the first word and to see if mood worked. I still had no idea what the first word was at that point! I finally unjumbled LIGHTENED! Had to work for this one for sure.

    I’m sure hoping that my mind is being totally exercised. Some of these puzzlers have been doozies for me. LL
