Clue/Question:  The retired doctor bought a hotel and became a – – –

(Oh, yeah!  That one is ripe!  But of course, I like it!  The stinkier pun, the better.  I probably should see a rheumatologist.  My trigger finger has been coming back, on my right hand.  The cortisone shot only lasts so long.  It’s still not as bad as before the shot, but it’s getting there.  And, in the morning my left hand has some similar stiffness.  My back, which had responded nicely to the PT, has been giving me some new trouble.  Not as bad as back in March and April, but it is calling to me.  Hey!  Old man!  Who do you think you’re fooling?  Aah!

Nothing new, on the clue word frontier today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have definitely seen “irrrmo” sometime in the past.  The jumbles were good, but none of them tripped me up.  The answer letter layout was a splendid, 13-letter jumble.  I did not pick up on “joints” and “joint” at first, in the doc’s dialog.  But, I was thinking some kind of ologist.  As I was was mentally checking off those letters, I remembered the quotation marks, and started putting it all together.

Exceptional cartoon of a hotel room!  I got the feel that that was exactly what I was looking at, right from the get go.  I could not find a comparable photo, of a hotel room and bathroom, on Google.  The one in the middle was the best I could find.  Plenty of just the room, or just the bathroom.  And, some hotel rooms that had these goofy glass partitioned bathrooms.  Who wants to see into the bathroom from your hotel room???  Where is the sense of privacy with that kind of setup?  Yeesh.  All in all a superlative Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I got this fairly quickly, as challenging invented-word Jumbles go, because the cartoon said ROOM- to me as well. Then I got the rest of it backwards: -IST is a common suffix for a doctor, -OLOG- often goes before -IST, leaving -AT or -TA, and -AT’s the one that works. Without the cartoon strongly suggesting ROOM-, I would have been staring at this blankly awhile. Thank you Jeff!

    Never in a million years would I have solved the puzzle. I know what you mean about all the aches and pains. I have on a masters’ track team since I was 60, but as I approach 70, my back, right knee and cardio-vascular conditioning may bring on retirement……walking the dog and a little slow jogging and bike riding are much more appealing.

    For a change, I got all the clue words, but couldn’t solve the puzzle. The answer letters gave nothing away to me.

    Real bummer on this one. In my paper, there was a guest cartoonist jumble showing a kangaroo “hopped up” on coffee. It wasn’t until this morning (6/22), when I read the correct answer about “room-atologist”, that I realized I had solved the wrong puzzle for yesterday.

    As for your “trigger finger” — cortisone is a temporary fix and should be limited to a very few times. (I know from experience.) But, the long-term answer for me was to start using Glucosamine/Chondroitin tabs and the trigger finger situation disappeared after about a week.

    Funny you should mention this, boss! Three days ago I started taking Glucosamine/Chondroitin! Too soon to tell, but I’m hopeful. — YUR
