Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 09/23/18

Visual Description:  Suburban entrepreneurs.

RUVEIT  =  VIRTUE,  DIETEX  =  EXITED,  LPOLGA  =  GALLOP,  SDOYHD  =  SHODDY,  KMABER  =  EMBARK,  NARENM  =  MANNER   —   Giving us:  VITEDALSDDEARNN

Clue/Question:  When it came to selling lemonade, the girls were prepared to – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (5-letters)  (3-letters)  (7-letters)

Answer:  STAND AND DELIVER

(A semi-stinky pun.  Better than my initial notion of blank THE DISTANCE, which wouldn’t fit anyway.  Nothing sour about this Jumble!

Surprisingly, for me, “exited” is coming up as a new clue word!  Our good friend. ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database!  All of today’s jumbles came up as new.  And, “virtue” stumped me!  I had to back into it!  Not a good sign.  Perhaps it means I’m a person of low, or no, virtue???  I hesitated a little on “embark” and “exited”, but I got ’em.  The answer letter layout was a dandy of a jumble.  Nicely cryptic, indeed.

Really cute cartoon.  Takes me back to my childhood.  Very nice neighborhood.  People walking their dogs, father and son, and kids selling lemonade.  It’s the American ideal!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Unc liked David Hoyt’s answer “Better than [his] initial notion of blank THE DISTANCE, which wouldn’t fit anyway.” Heh.

    My initial notion was SERVE AND blank, but after reading the cartoon captions, I knew I needed the R, V, and both E’s in “serve” for DELIVER instead.

    Selling lemonade used to almost be a rite of passage in suburbia that drove home the lesson of location, location, location. If you lived on a low-traffic street, customers were far and few between, but on the other hand, it’s also hard to sell if you live on a 45+ mph street. If the customers don’t come to you, go to the customers, right? I tried dragging a lemonade wagon around our quiet neighborhood and calling out like the old city fish peddlers. BZZZT. But thanks, mom, for letting me try.

    Now many parents are afraid to expose their kids to Stranger Danger and crazy city bureaucrats who want to impose restaurant health codes on kids selling lemonade.

    We’re lucky we grew up when we did, David! — YUR

    I totally agree Unc! Today’s kids have no idea what fun used to be.

    I immediately jumped on DISTANCE for the last word, but didn’t have the T for THE, which I thought was the middle word. Finally came up with DELIVER and AND and had to unJumble the remaining letters to find STAND. A Sunday thinker for sure! LL
