Treat thoughts as guests and wishes as children.”   —   Chinese Saying

(Great saying!  I love how Rebecca is mixing things up a bit.  We’ve long had Chinese Proverbs, but recently we’ve seen Chinese Wisdom, and now we’re seeing Chinese Saying.  I think it helps to keep things interesting.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  IMMENSELY

(A gargantuan pun?  Okay, let’s not go overboard.  It’s a good little pun.  Clearly, the little brother isn’t impressed.  Aah, sibling rivalry.  Ya gotta love it.  Or, not.

No new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be mew.  I was able to see all of the clue words immediately today.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  Just sizable enough to make things interesting.

A great family dinner table scene.  Looks like pizza night!    I remember helping my kids with their vocabulary lessons.  It was fun because I could always come up with clues to help them get the words.  Good times.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MAKE THE CUT

(Forgive me for being blunt.  But, this Jumble came off as just a little flat.  Definitely not the sharpest of puns.  I guess they can’t all be finely honed, keen-edged, razor-sharp puns every single day.  I’m just being frank, folks.

Nary a new clue word to be found with this Jumble.  Nothing for ralis95 to do.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “turemt” being the only one we’ve definitely seen before.  The answer letter layout was a modest seven letter jumble.  It wasn’t obvious though. 

Interesting cartoon.  If this worker receives some kind of demerit, would that be the unkindest cut of all?  The supervisor’s words could have stinging consequences.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
