Answer:  A GREAT DEAL TO HER

(A sweet, stinky pun!  So nice of Gramps to help the young lady out.  Now, she can get to her job independently, not having to rely on one, two, or more forms of public transportation.  Of course, now she has to deal with gas and maintenance, traffic, and tolls, and crazy – and crazed – drivers.  And, maybe she read, or napped, when she used public transportation.  Can’t do that when you’re driving.  Well, not yet at least.  There’s always a trade off.

A fine set of clue words today.  None of them were new, and that’s okay.  Five of the jumbles did come up as new, with “sloygs” being the only one we’ve definitely seen before.  The answer letter layout was a nifty fifteen letter jumble.  I thought it did a fine job of disguising the final answer.  For me, the clue/question set up the pun very nicely.

Fine suburban cartoon.  The Jumble-Mobile that Gramps is handing down looks a lot more presentable than “Beige Betty”.  Hopefully, low mileage and mechanically sound.  Fun Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This was the most difficult one for me this year. I could not see PAROLE and CAJOLE. The final solution was no problem which allowed me to back into these two and I just realized how similar they are, both ending in OLE.

    I got PAROLE, but it took a while for CAJOLE. It was well jumbled!? I thought maybe one of those two words was a new word. Sure don’t remember seeing CAJOLE.

    Gramps is a sweetie! And I love that she’s appreciative. I had an old 62 or 63 Ford Falcon for my first car. So loved that car. Today I see some kids starting out in newer, expensive cars they don’t seem to appreciate.. I kinda feel sorry for them. Not quite sure why. LL
