Visual Description:  Salon silliness.

GGION  =  GOING,  DYOLD  =  ODDLY,  FEDDIE  =  DEFIED,  CCESIN  =  SCENIC   —   Giving us:  INGOLDEDEIC

Clue/Question:  To get information before cutting hair, the salon owner did – – –

Image result for autumn

Answer:  DO DILIGENCE

(This qualifies as a real stinky pun!  A real groaner!  But, that’s why I like it.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  I thought that both “feddie” – which we’ve had before – and “ccesin” were fairly challenging jumbles.  I semi-backed into them.  The answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The quotation marks were the big clue for me!  That, and my 24 years in trust accounting.  Nifty cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy Autumnal Equinox everybody!  Some twelve year old wrote something about it being “a little depressing”, because the days are getting shorter!  Duh!  They’ve been getting shorter since June the 22nd, you dweeb!  Try getting out of bed before noon, you mentally lazy moron!  LOL!  Autumn rules!     YUR

    Such a punny answer! ‘CCESIN’ scrambled my brain for a bit as well. Maybe the 12-year-old heard his parents complaining and got that sentiment from them. Seems odd someone so young would be a bit depressed about that- how sad! I love your ‘get out of bed before noon!’ response- it reminded me of the new-ish Yoplait Go-gurt commercial where two 4th graders are dressed up like crotchety old men, lamenting how easy 3rd graders have it with the easy-open yogurt tubes, and how hard it was for them to open them ‘back in their day’. At the end, they tell the 3rd graders to ‘Get A Job!’ Makes me laugh every time. (Not insinuating you’re an oldster, ha!) =) I do think parents should teach their children to appreciate all the positives and blessings in their lives instead of griping over truly insignificant things…especially when there’s so many children in the world who would love for their biggest problem to be the sunset arriving sooner in the day!

    It’s been a challenging week in Jumbleland for me. SCENIC is another one of those tough clue words like BICEPS that Jumble players benefit from just memorizing; that one was not my problem. But I needed even more time for this final answer than the STORE one that stumped me the other day.

    For this final answer, I saw three possible two-letter words and quickly, correctly settled on “DO” as the obvious pun word in the quotation marks for this cartoon but still needed a long time with a lot of crunching to unscramble that nasty second word with its down-the-wrong-rabbit-hole DE-, -ED, and -ING possibilities. Have mercy. Yes, another good pun though.

    My paper only had the drawing of the hairdresser and the client sitting in a chair. There were NO jumbled words to figure out an answer?
    Did someone screw -up here?

    I would say: most definitely, Joe! You should call your newspaper and complain. Newspapers do a really crummy job of proofing things these days. Not to sound like our President, but: SAD!

    The people who do the newspaper layout don’t actually work any puzzles, they don’t know you can’t cut off the last two clues from crossword puzzle, secret words from Jumble, or leading lines between Cryptoquote. It happens a lot. Definitely call (or email) and complain!

    I was just being facetious, when I called that writer a 12 year old, jenn. I really have no idea how old they were. (I’m betting they were young-ish though.) Maybe I should’ve gone with *know nothing*! I do like that Go-gurt commercial though. Very cute! And, yes. Too many of today’s youth including young adults) lack a sense of gratitude. The parents are to blame!

    *Due Diligence* was hammered into us during my Trust Accounting banking days, David. I had been unfamiliar with the term before then. I think it is becoming a little more common place, but I can see why some would struggle to come up with it.

    The newspapers are only getting what they pay for, hal. You see it in just about every aspect of the paper. It’s very distressing. This morning I read an article about a hike the writer took along the east bank of the Hudson River. A few times he mentioned “the mansion”, but no mention of WHAT mansion! I kept going back and re-reading, to see if it was something I missed, but no. It wasn’t until I read a little inset, with address and other pertinent info, at the end of the article, that I figured out WHAT mansion he was referring to. That’s just sloppy writing, AND sloppy editing. (Plus, the article was just ponderous!)

    Oh, y’all are so right about newspapers. I’ve seen several articles on either a new store/restaurant or an event, read all the way through the article and no mention of when the store/restaurant opens, or when and where the event is being held. What happened to Who What When Where???

    What a way to start/end the week guyz! And it’s FALL! (Thanks Unc, I had no idea.)

    I wasn’t sure I was going to get the answer. SCENIC was NOT a gimmie. I’m with the choir on this. For the solve I was looking for an ING words. I see the ING letters in the clue letters and jump to that conclusion.

    I played around with the letters and after 37 minutes put DO on my pad with no other letters around and DO DILIGENCE just came! Probably came to me because of my 30 years in banking Unc, and all of the mergers and all of the due diligence that was done!

    I’m so happy to be starting the week with all the jumbles solved!

    Have a good week. LL

    OK Y’all, I was thinking the 22nd was Sunday! I obviously have no idea of the date or time. I am slightly left of center! LindaLee
