(When that show, “Survivor”, first debuted, I thought it was going to be about the people banding together, to the benefit of all involved.  But, when I saw that it was all about people *building* “alliances”, and sniping and plotting to stab others in the back . . . I bailed after that first episode.  And, I’ve never returned.  Humankind is supposed to be better than that.  For the greedy television executives to appeal to the basest instincts of lowbrow television viewers, to me, is an insult to our intelligence.  For it to have lasted nearly 18 years is a sad commentary on American society.

But, all of today’s clue words are true blue, un-new, clue words!  And, 3 of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “ploee” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was fairly intimidating.  There was definitely nothing obvious about it.  The clue/question, along with the great cartoon, led me to BAND.  And, from there I was able to join together.  From the looks of it, Jeff was going for a specific band.  Maybe something like Dave Matthews, or John Mayer, or maybe even Jack Johnson.  One of those mellow soft Rock bands.  Not really my style, but I do like the occasional mellow song.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Just checking in to say hi and give your fans some insight into today’s Jumble cartoon. That’s one of Jeff’s favorite bands featured…Poi Dog Pondering: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poi_Dog_Pondering I’m also a big fan of theirs. Jeff knows Frank Orrall personally as far as I know.

    I’m totally loving the music Unc! The boys making me happy, taking me back to being young. Wonder what young people think when they see this old lady boppin’ In the car. 😂 And oh, it took me forever to figure out “behind”, sheesh. Got the others right away and the solve was quick once I got that jumble! Take care Unc, keep dancin’!

    Oh and off topic, I find both Tara and Johnny to be terrible commentators on the Olympics. They are rude. My opinion only.

    Very cool, Mr. Hoyt! Thanks for clarifying things. Nice to hear from you. — YUR

    Glad you’re enjoying the music videos, Barb. But, where are your comments about Tara and Johnny coming from???

    Unc, as I said “off topic” and I was watching Olympics while doing Jumble. You know, multi-tasking. Just habbering. And I loved today’s jumble, got all the clues fairly quickly & after leaving to take care of my 2 fur babies came back to it, came up with fringes but could not go anywhere. Saw the -ing, got sweeping, then reforms was easy. A good stinky Sunday Jumble. C u tomorrow. 😊
