(Wow!  This one really had me going, for a while.  Maybe the guys were trying to shut me up a little.  JKLOL! 

I thought that the jumble “tauish” was positively diabolical!  No, LindaLee is not writing today’s comments.  I had to back into it, and that wasn’t easy, because without that H & S . . . figuring out the final Answer was definitely not easy for me.   I also thought that both “vaiyar” and “tangee” were fairly challenging jumbles.  All of them appear to be new jumbles.

The answer letter layout was a killer jumble.  Nothing obvious about it, to me.  The cartoon’s dialog led me to think one of the answer words might be REST, so I was thinking REST IT OVER . . .   I finally focused in on her signing the sales papers/contract.  Then the bells went off, and I saw the final answer.  Figuring out what to do with the S & H still took me some time to figure out “hiatus”!  Great self-promoting Sunday Jumble!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I haven’t seen “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” yet, but I want to see it.  I did just see “The Post”, and it was good, but . . .   —   YUR

    The clue words were a tad tricky. I had to look at the puzzle to see if I could figure it out to back into a word or two. Well, that didn’t work! So, I finally unjumbled all of the clue words and promptly carried the wrong letters over to my notebook to start working on the jumble answer. I thought at first it was GIVE IT ???? TO HER. Obviously that got me nowhere! Then I discovered that I was working with the wrong letters, Got OVER, then SIGN. Vera good puzzle!!!! Practically gave me a headache!!!

    UR,’ haitus’ nearly gave me a headache trying to figure it out, and ‘negate’ took forever as well. I still couldn’t get haitus even when I HAD the s and h! After mixing up the letters into what I thought were ridiculous orders, I finally had the lightbulb go on! I only got ‘aviary’ in less time than the others because I had actually just had that word on the Just Jumble app! When I first scanned through the jumbles, I knew I had already hit a brick wall, even before I realized our paper had once again left off the answer grid! Whew, what a tough Jumble day! Just when I think I can do these Jumbles sort of decently, I’ve learned ‘the guyz’ will toss in a Jumble that will keep me (very!) humble! Score: Jumble Guyz win again! (A Jumble day like this is why the easy days are cause for celebration!)

    AVIARY is a most challenging jumble. In fact, it’s for the birds …
