Jumble Spoiler – 07/05/18

Visual Description:  “Climbing up on Solsbury Hill“.


Clue/Question:  Running up a hillside can be great exercise if you are – – –


(I guess this begs the question:  Is there such a thing as a high pun???  Snooty types would definitely argue NO.  But, we don’t allow snooty types on this blog, now do we???  Hell’s Bells No!  “Elements of Style”?  “Elements of Style”??  We don’t got no “Elements of Style”!  We don’t need no stinkin’ “Elements of Style”!!!  BLAM, BLAH, BLAM, BLAM, BLAM!!!

Phew!  Are the bandidos gone?  Maybe, we can get back to the Jumble now.  Would you believe . . . we actually have another two new clue words today?  Yes, indeedy!  Both “salsa” and “mining” have somehow eluded the Jumble mavens, until today.  These words will need to be added to the – world famous – ralis95 clue word database.  I think Hoyt has been enlisting his dad’s help, in coming up with new clue words.  I hope Hoyt puts him on the payroll, because he is earning his keep!  All of the jumbles came up as new today.  None were terribly tough, for me.  The answer letter layout was the toughest of today’s jumbles.  My initial feeling was that the first word was going to be IN or ON.  Possibly NO.  But, maybe because of the cartoon’s dialog, I was able to lean into the answer.

Nice, outdoor, cross-country cartoon.  It got the job done.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  The girl above the answer is Katelyn Tuohy!  She just finished her sophomore year in high school, and she already owns just about every record in cross-country, and indoor and outdoor track!  She’s been running varsity since the seventh grade!  Look up articles on her, and be amazed!     YUR

    If you are correct – Hoyt’s Dad is great at adding new words! Two more today; six for the week, and it’s only Thursday!! BTW, the database is now up to 3,214 words.

    Wow! Just when you thought that the list couldn’t get any bigger! — YUR

    Thanks! I was actually just wondering how many words we were up to in the world-famous ralis95 clue word database, and voila! Funny how many of the new words added to the list seem like ones we surely must have had before, but nope!
