Jumble Spoiler – 03/31/20

Florida Retirement Community to Purchase Development's Golf ...

6 top luxury retirement communities


(Ooh!  A classic stinky pun!  There had been kind of a renewed building boom, before this Coronavirus hit.  Now, there seems to be a halt on all construction, as it’s not considered essential.  One exception seems to be the SoFi Stadium, going up in Los Angeles.  I guess billionaires are excluded from helping to stem this pandemic!  I guess it won’t be too long before L.A. surpasses NYC as the leader in cases and deaths from COVID-19.  That project surely can’t be helping things.

All of today’s clue words already reside on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  However, all four of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  The first two came to me immediately, but the next two were toughies.  I was able to get “verbal” legitimately, but I had to back into “canola”.  Fortunately, there was enough in the incomplete answer letter layout for me to see the final answer.  But, a thirteen letter jumble is pretty impressive.  Especially for a Tuesday.

Nice cartoon of a salesperson showing a couple the plans of the development.  I guess on the tabletop, at the bottom, is the layout of the golf course.  I’m just not sure what that black thing is.  Maybe it’s a creek leading to a pond.  Golf courses like to throw in some water hazards.  Does anybody else have a guess as to what it might be?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    CANOLA was much harder for me than the final answer. I too had to back in to CANOLA, and I struggled to do that even though I could see that the pattern was probably – A – – L A. I’m sure ralis95 is right that we’ve had it before, but I did not remember it, and it only made my tough Jumbles word list today.

    Oh for Pete’s sake! We had CANOLA just last June and it stumped us then too!!
    It didn’t pop in a couple of searches, but I did add it to my tough Jumble word list June and forgot it already!

    No problem. There had to be a CANOLA-connection! Thanks, David. — YUR

    I had to back into CANOLA too!! Good grief! And I don’t remember it from before. I was thinking it might have been new.

    Have no idea what that black thing is..looks like it has some kind of cord that runs to the edge of the table and then around the edge of the table??

    Loved the answer…LOTS AVAILABLE…good one!
