Jumble Spoiler – 11/21/18

Visual Description:  Latté clutch?

KAHTN  =  THANK,  RYROW  =  WORRY,  TACLET  =  CATTLE,  ESFEUD  =  DEFUSE   —   Giving us:  THNWORATTEDSE

Clue/Question:  Twitter has a character limit so that people’s posts are – – –

Answer:  SHORT AND TWEET

(A clever, new millennial pun!  And, it makes me smile because it reminds me of Tweety Bird.  I used to have an aunt whose nickname came about because of her big blue, wide-eyed enthusiasm, and she ran around like a little Tweety Bird.  Sadly, she’s gone.  But memories of her live on in the hearts of my family.

None of today’s clue words are new.  However, three of the jumbles did come up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “taclet” some time in the past.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful 13-letter jumble.  By itself it gave nothing away.  It was the combination of the quotation marks, in the final solution section, and the word Twitter, in the clue/question, that made getting the answer very easy for me.  Hopefully, for you guys too!

The cartoon does a fine job showing how far too many people are these days.  Kinda sad.  I just came back from taking Carol to the eye doctor, and picking up some Italian take-out from Uncle Giuseppe’s, and I just realized that I had left my cell phone charging on the kitchen counter.  Two and a half hours and I didn’t even miss the darn thing!  Imagine that!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Proof that you grew up without it, UR!
    Italian sounds pretty good. I usually crave some tomato sauce after 3 straight days of turkey and cornbread dressing.
    Best Thanksgiving to you and yours, UR!

    Dear unc,

    I don’t know if it’s just the computers I access, but the shade of yellow you use is difficult to see.

    The yellow is pretty, but maybe a darker shade.

    Yellow is always a little dicey, lwc. But, some things are worth the work! LOL! — YUR
