Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 09/17/17

Visual description:  If yer “uncle” was a real estate mogul.


Clue/Question:  He purchased the land to build the skyscraper because he wanted to – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (3-letters)  (3-letters),  (4-letters)  (4-letters)

Image result for Donald Trump Jr.


(Ah, yes.  Pretty much the goal of every type of investor!  Did you fine folks catch the name on the Coming soon sign?  RAVE TOWERSIf yer uncle had Donald Trump’s money, he could burn his!  He could definitely pay off all his debts, that’s for sure.  Of course if I were that rich I would have to be a major philanthropist.  Yeah, I’d be funding scholarships, feeding the poor, building schools and infrastructure in under-developed nations, and protecting animals . . . and the environment!  You’d see PBS shows sponsored by The Uncle Rave Foundation!  Just like Rockefeller, Ford, Robert Wood Johnson, Alfred P. Sloan, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundations! 

All of today’s clue words are old favorites, however all of their jumbles came up as new.  I thought that “helian”, “gluesd”, and “oynerd” were excellent jumbles.  The answer letter layout did a nifty job of concealing the answer.  I didn’t see where they were going with this for a couple of minutes, but then I saw the word BUY.  After that, it all fell into place.  Besides the fantastic sign, I also liked the drawing of the developer.  Reminded me more of Donald Trump Jr., than his dear old dad.  Tons of fun, and it certainly brought a smile to yer dear ol’ uncle’s face!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I think this is the 2nd time I’ve seen your name immortalized in a Jumble drawing…thinking the other one was a car lot name? What a tremendous compliment and honor for you, and what fun! Well deserved for all your hard work! This Jumble was a tricky solve- I love those!

    I thought I saw GLUESD before, but couldn’t remember what word it was.

    Yeah. It’s kind of a shame that I posted it on the same day as a bunch of other ones, jenn. It might’ve gotten more notice if it were a stand alone. But, I appreciate it. And, I’m glad you noticed too. This is the second one to mention “Rave”, but there was a third one that didn’t mention my name but it was a caricature of me. It came a year or two after the first “Rave” one. Big thanks to Jeff and David, for the tribute. And, thank you for the kind words, jenn!

    I threw in the towel on this one! I caught RAVE too Unc! But this is the first time I’ve spied you in a cartoon. WOW!!!!

    I studied this cartoon hard. The clue words just remained a jumbled mess. I so dislike not being able to solve a jumble; however, when I saw the answer, I don’t think I’d have gotten it! And it wasn’t hard! Well, that hard 🙂

    Take care all!! LL

    Wow, a caricature of you as well?? Super, super neat! Was it a caricature of your photo you use on this blog, or one of a more well-seasoned you? If it was me, I would have all 3 framed, and probably would use them as Christmas card photos or include them in the annual Christmas letter! =D (Nah, I couldn’t be that assertive, but I would be glowing with happiness!)
    ( =D x 2)

    The caricature was the me who met them at a word game weekend at a place called Mohunk Mountain House, in New Paltz, NY, a few years ago! Jeff sent me the two earlier ones, and that’s enough. I had them framed, of course. I also met Will Shortz, who’s the editor for the New York Times crossword puzzle, that weekend. Another nice guy.
