(Very cute Jumble pun.  And, it’s a very fitting Jumble for those of us in the Northeast, as it is raining all day today, and likely all day tomorrow.  Walking the Wally this morning, my feet got soaked!  Bad choice of footwear, on my part.  I was tired of wearing boots, and I didn’t want my better sneakers to get wet.  Fortunately, the rain, and warmer temps, will get rid of the snow we’ve been dealing with.  Just in time for a new round of snow this Wednesday!

We have a brand new clue word again today.  Today’s word “slimy” will join yesterday’s word “clunky” as new additions to the ralis95 world famous clue word database!  For some reason, its jumble “misyl” gave me trouble.  I also struggled some to get “nudge”, even though we’ve had “dugen” as a jumble before.  We’ve also seen “cidpet” sometime before.  The answer letter layout was a super twelve letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.

Fun cartoon of a jovial old ghost.  The guy under the umbrella, getting his feet wet, could have been me!  If only there had been a dog leash in his free hand.  I recently saw a special on Karen Carpenter, on a local PBS channel, which put me in mind of one of her songs!  Such a sweet voice!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Nice illustration.
    At times I think that I not liking rainy days is a lazy cliche.
    But I can’t help it, and to have my feet wet is one of my definitions os discomfort.
    It also shows the extent of my being a spoiled brat lol

    My wife complains when it’s rainy, or even when it’s just overcast. I just try to remember these old saws: “Into each life a little rain must fall.” And . . . “To appreciate the sun, you gotta know what rain is.” — YUR

    I too thought SLIMY was new, and it took me about 30 seconds to run down. Another addition to my hard-Jumble-word list as well. Two additions in two days after a quiet run. The last one for me was TAWDRY, a while ago.

    After further review, TAWDRY and ATONAL were and two other words that gave me trouble and appeared recently, so it’s been an active couple of weeks for my tough-word list.

    By the way, I quickly came up with the same final answer you did, but neither online version of Jumble credits this answer as correct with the victory tune, though the Flash puzzle does cross off all the letters entered. If you hit the SOLVE button on the Flash version, the answer they say they’re looking for is DAMPEN his HISSPI. Interesting. The other non-Flash online version of the puzzle is unsolvable no matter what you type. Probably not too many successful solvers of the daily puzzle online today. You’d think that would set off alarm bells at UClick. Trust me: it doesn’t. Didn’t really matter, since I knew it was right. This is no different than solving in the newspaper, since you don’t find out for sure until checking that you were right or wrong.

    next day update: UClick fixed the online puzzle for this date! That’s not typical. Usually they leave a broken puzzle broken.

    Maybe, somehow they’re hearing you! — YUR
