(Boy.  The guys really had me going there, for a bit.  I wasn’t making the connection for a few minutes.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “cithh” before.  And, I’m sure I’ve said it before, but “accent” is another one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was a great cryptic jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Just from the way the clue/question was phrased, I thought that the second word was going to be THEM.  When it left me with HESRPCE I thought that maybe I was wrong about THEM!  But, finally the quotation marks and the pun aspect kicked in, and I saw PERCHES.  Very good, guys.  I liked Jeff’s kind of blase birds.  It looks like one is even texting, or maybe even playing Angry Birds!  Hey, how about that?  A very satisfying Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Brilliant!!!! Just brilliant! Loved this jumbler!! AND the tweeting!! Totally missed that. OMG, how great is that??!!!

    My husb said this one was diabolical as I was having a bit of a problem getting the answer and he pulled it up to take a look at it. I had THEM figured out. Then none of the words I thought it could be were there. Then I started moving the letters about and found PERCHES! And, love the cartoon and your pics Unc. The blue birds are gorgeous.

    There have been several outstanding jumblers lately, but I’ve been under the weather (p-neumonia) and have not been on-line for ages, so have not posted. 😦 Yes, they are ALL outstanding, and some just stand out!

    I thought that SYRUPY might be a new word…was wrong!

    Thank you!!

    Take care all. LL
