Clue/Question:  Even without a brain, the Scarecrow could do anything he – – –

Answer:  PUT HIS MIND TO

(It’s so funny seeing the Scarecrow without his hat on!  It’s sorta like seeing Beetle Bailey without a hat, or helmet.  Today’s Jumble solve was a nice 12 letter answer.  All of the clue words were old favorites again.  Three of the jumbles look to be new, with “maidt” having definitely been used before.  I was able to see all the jumbles instantly this morning.  And, even though it’s a great jumble itself, the answer letter layout did not stump me.  The leading nature of the Clue/Question was a big help.  Really cute cartoon, of the very domestic Cowardly Lion and Scarecrow.  I don’t try to do anything in the morning before my first few sips of coffee.  I like the view of the Emerald City outside the window, with the hot-air balloon flying away.  In a funny bit of coincidence, today’s Cryptoquote refers to both cowardice and . . . COURAGE!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Great Jumble today! I saw it in color for the first time online. Very different experience from newspaper!
    Can you share what is the best way to read and/or send comments to Dave and Jeff?

    Any special meaning to “Unclerave’s” and your background pic?

    Who??? OH! Those two jokers? I think you’ve got to go to http://www.jumble.com, click on the More tab,then Contact Jeff & David, and go from there.

    But, me? Uh, well . . . I’ve been alive forever. And I wrote the very first song. I put the words and the melodies together. I am music and I write the songs. I am Quasimodo. And, this is my sanctuary.

    Thanks, UR, for creating, updating, and curating this blog for so many years!
    Note to Chase: I’m sure you can send to Jeff & David’s email folder using the website, but I think one or both of them read Uncle Rave every day. In fact, they frequently post here.

    Once upon a time they *may* have read these spoilers every day, hal. But, I think nowadays they take turns, occasionally looking in on things. They’ve got bigger fish to fry, and . . . lives, with families, and good stuff like that!

    Are you kidding me? I’m here two or three times a day. I’ve got to keep tabs on everyone. It’s not like I have anything better to do.
