(Tough) Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 09/30/18

Visual Description:  DIY travel planners.


Clue/Question:  He wanted to go to the mountains.  She wanted to go to the beach.  So they – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (8-letters)  (4-letters)  (3-letters)  (3-letters)


(I spun my wheels for quite a while on this answer!  I feel the boys may have used a little misdirection on this one.  Maybe I’m just a little old to pick up on this kind of answer.  I knew the first word had to end in ED, but I thought words two and three were EACH OWN.  That left me with HHSLGRIAD, and I couldn’t do squat with that.  I went to a sports bar to watch my team, came back and offered it to my daughter and her boyfriend.  The junk I wrote in negatively affected them, and they put it down to try later.  I picked it up again and thought the first word might be related to COMPROMISED, so I Googled synonyms and got excited when I saw CONCEDED, but there was only one C.  From that search it finally hit me!  SEARCHED!  After eliminating those letters HIGH AND LOW made a ton of sense.  For a while I thought maybe some of the circles were in the wrong spots.  Nope.  Just a tough Jumble.

No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I had to skip and come back to both “ensign” and “gerbil”.  I’m very glad I didn’t have to back into either one of those words, all things considered.  Needless to say, I think the answer letter layout is a master jumble!

Fun cartoon.  Once you have the answer it’s obvious what the couple are doing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I somehow came up with this one pretty quickly–so to speak! But, after originally looking at ALL of those clue letters and being very intimidated since nothing made sense, I walked away. When I sat back down with a sense of purpose, I tackled the puzzler, and the answer came pretty quickly. I’m not quite sure what I saw that tipped me off, but I can say with confidence, had I not seen whatever it was, I’d probably still be working on it!

    Sometimes when doing the Just Jumble or Just Two Words game that are out there, I do have to wonder where they are going with the pictures, what are they trying to convey. Sometimes our puzzlers are just like that …it is hard to figure out where they are going with the puzzle!! AND, isn’t that what it isall about–that and unjumbling (sometimes crazily diabolical) cluewords???

    So love my jumbles! LL
