Clue/Question:  The bottom of the valley was a little further – – –

(I’m liking it as a Jumble, but not so much as a pun.  Of course, I get it, but it’s too true to be a good stinky pun.  I don’t think it would elicit many groans.

We do have another brand new clue word though!  Yep, this appears to be the first time they’ve used “turbo”.  And boy, was it ever tough for me to un-jumble “borut”.  I had to back into it.  The other three I got right away.  All four jumbles came up as new.  Hoyt is really keeping our ol’ friend ralis95 busy, updating his world famous clue word database.  The answer letter layout was a nice eight letter jumble.  But, because of the great visual and the way answer slots were set up, I found it an easy solve.  Even without the initial RO.

A very scenic cartoon.  I’d like to be in that convertible, driving down that valley.  Looks like a good time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I got Turbo right away, along with Wager. But had problems with the last two. I set the puzzle aside and went back later; the last two came to me quickly. And I got the answer fairly quickly as well. Seemed to be a simple puzzle for me today. 🙂

    I’m a little surprised you got turbo so quickly, Damid, as it’s essentially a shortening of turbocharge. I wouldn’t argue that it’s not a word, but it definitely did not stand out for me. Are you some kind of motor-head, or car enthusiast? — YUR

    Yeah, sorta. Turbo has been in my lexicon for a long time. I like cars since I was a kid, and even today, project cars hold an appeal. I have a project car semi-stored away (it’s in the garage, but not properly stored) to work on eventually. But it’s not going to have a turbo. 😀

    I thought so. I’d like to be a car guy, but I don’t know enough, and I don’t have any disposable income anyway! I can fake it, a little though. Hey, remember when a “tranny” only meant a transmission, and not a transvestite/trans-gender/trans-sexual??? Simpler times, my friend. LOL! — YUR
