Answer:  PLEASED AS PUNCH

(Beautiful pun!  No new clue words today, but four of the jumbles did come up as new.  we’ve seen both “sufeed” and “lonelp” before.  The jumble for “spiral” was so difficult for me, that even doing this Jumble for the second time I had to back into it.  It probably took me a little longer yesterday, but I still had no recollection of the word when I went to do it today.  I did it at my mom’s yesterday, but didn’t get a chance to post, due to having to drive 4 1/2 hours to get home.  I left it there, so I had to do it all over again, this morning, at my house.  I thought it would come to me instantly, like the first five words, but it was deja vu all over again!  The answer letter layout was good, but the answer was obvious, to me.  The cartoon is great.  It looks like the guy’s mouth guard is spit out on his chest!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    ‘Spiral’ gave me fits! Not only that, but as easy as ‘cookie’ should have been, it gave me pause…and to top it off,for some brain-sneeze reason, I wrote down ‘rubber’ instead of ‘bummer’. Oy vey. … Loved the Yogi Berra quote…he had such a wealth of laugh-inducing quips, didn’t he. Aw, bless you for being so devoted to the Jumble-verse, even while with your mom and long travels. Hugs to you both!

    Pollen and spiral were no walk in the park!!! The only reason I got the Puzzler answer was that I saw PUNCH which made it much easier to get the rest of the answer. In the beginning I was looking for one of Mohammad Ali’s lines.

    Unc, I hope the trip to your mom’s was a good one.

    I find it amazing how I can look at the Jumbler a day or two later and have to work it all over again! It rather bothers me! But then I give our Jumbler Guyz full credit for being so good!

    Take care all….LL
