Answer:  CALLED IT A DAY

(No new words.  Three new jumbles.  We’ve had “tpehd” some time before.  Great answer letter layout.  Creepy, but probably accurate cartoon.  Be well and do good, Friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FORE FOR FOUR

(Excellent golf pun!  We appear to have a new clue word in “fluff”.  Our great friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database for this simple word.  All of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Expertly crafted answer letter layout.  Nifty cartoon.  Reminiscent of Caddyshack.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for firewood

Answer:  MONEY TO BURN

(Great play on the old idiom.  No new clue words.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “murym” having been used before.  Super cryptic answer letter layout!  Definitely not obvious, at all.  Nicely detailed cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for coffee shop line

Answer:  GROUND TO A HALT

(Ooh!  Really stinky pun.  No new clue words, but three new jumbles.  We’ve seen “phedt” before.  Once again, in just under a week, we’re seeing the clue word “depth”.  Another awesome answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious about it.  Fun cartoon of a hipster coffee shop.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/17/17

Image result for When pigs fly

Answer:  PIGMENT

(Marvelously stinky pun!  And, a great Jumble!  There might not have been any new clue words, but all of the jumbles did come up as new.  I don’t think that any of them were too tough.  I did see the word PANDORA for a few seconds.  It was just a name, but now it’s a product.  Right?  So, maybe it could sneak in as a “word”, if it were only six letters long.  The answer letter layout was swell.  Nothing obvious there.  The cartoon is great.  The hog farmer in his hip waders, and the snoozing piggy made for a very charming cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/17/17

Image result for grandchildren

The idea that no one is perfect is a view most commonly held by people with no grandchildren.”   —   Doug Larson

(I must be the exception to the rule, because while I dearly love my grandchildren, I no longer possess the patience necessary to fool myself into thinking that they are perfect.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
