Pre-Answer: Four Words (5-letters)-(2-letters)-(5-letters)-(3-letters)
(This guy has got a little McGyver in him! Nice pun. There were no new clue words today. However, all of the jumbles, other than “ciptam”, are new today. My initial reaction to “haactt” was that it was thatch, even though there were two As and only one H. That mistake stuck in my head, and prevented me from seeing “attach” for a little while. I didn’t have to back into it, or anything, but I had to skip it and come back to it, after getting the others. The answer letter layout was pretty good, but because of all the As and Cs and Ts, and the clue/question, I didn’t have any problem getting the answer. The cartoon is a great outdoor scene. Did you notice the name of the little motorized rowboat? It’s why I’m using today’s picture. It’s from 1954, and The Jumble started in 1954. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. The third jumble is REPEN. That should help you get the answer! — YUR
