Question/Answer:  WHAT GIVES?

(I don’t know if Jeff painted that, or not.  But, even he and Kathy look like they want nothing to do with it.  You know, some of these big-time puzzle creators just get SO full of themselves, that they do crazy stuff . . . like posing in the buff.  I don’t know what the artist got, but he shoulda got life!  Next time, guys, just auction off one of your Jumble panels.  Okay?  Paintings of middle aged, naked, bald guys belong to a very small niche market . . . available only to those strange people who surf the dark web.

So, no new clue words today, but none of them have been used in quite a while.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “asewes” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout made for an exquisite jumble.  I bet some of you struggled mightily!  Splendid cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.  Don’t take any wooden nickels . . . or buy any naked paintings of David L. Hoyt!)   —   YUR

    I surprised David didn’t say anything when I sent that cartoon in. It tells you how busy he is.

    I was certain the fourth word was PEACHY, but I couldn’t exclude the possibility that it was CHEAPY, alternate spelling of CHEAPIE. You know, inexpensive knockoff of some desirable gadget. Oh yes, I wondered about the subject of the painting, but didn’t feel like straining my eyes to see it up close …

    Hey there Unc, can’t believe how long it took me to get seesaw & peachy but the solve was quick & easy. But I don’t understand the comments about naked bald men. What am I missing? Regardless, still love the jumble and you & what you bring to it (to us). Hugs from BT.

    The painting, that no one is bidding on, is that of a naked bald man. I was teasing that it is supposed to be David L. Hoyt, but Jeff Knurek indicated that he was having a little fun with his partner. But, apparently MR. Hoyt was too busy to even noticed that he was being punked!

    Well duh, the cartoon was so tiny, I did miss it. Come to think of it there is a resemblance to David… Tee hee.

    I also missed the naked, bald man!!! I’m going to have to start pulling up the cartoon online so I can see it better! Hate to miss out on the fine nuances of Jeff’s work. Doesn’t seem fair to the jumble.

    Peachy did take a minute. Found it funny since I was enjoying a total YUMM peach on my Kashi. We are in peach heaven at the moment! The crop may have been hurt by our late freezes, but the outcome of what grew after is awesome!! I don’t want summer to end because the peaches will end. I am in peach mecca! LL

    That seems to be the issue with Jersey peaches, as well, LL! We’re having a bumper crop around here.
