Jumble Spoiler – 03/24/21

What's open on Labor Day: SoCal beaches, parks, trails - Los Angeles Times

Visual Description:  Zoo-ology lesson.

FLICF  =  CLIFF,  LENTK  =  KNELT,  BEELMM  =  EMBLEM,  DSUNED  =  SUDDEN   —   Giving us:  CIKETEMSN

Clue/Question:  She forgot that giraffes have seven vertebrae, but she’d try to remember – – –

Cervical Vertebrae - Assignment Point

Answer:  NECKS TIME

(Excellent pun!  I don’t think this was a s t r e t ch by any means.  I thought it was an easy r e a c h.  But, I have to admit that I was not aware of the fact that mammals have the same number of cervical – neck – vertebrae!  I guess I just never thought about it.  I’ll have to store this in my memory banks, in case it comes up on Jeopardy, or something.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words in past Jumbles.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “lentk” having definitely been used before.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  I knew that NECK had to be in the answer, but I’ve been a little fuzzy lately in seeing the pun aspect.  But, I did get the answer in about seven seconds.

I always enjoy Jeff’s cartoons with kids and animals.  Almost as much as anthropomorphic animals, historical period pieces, sports themed puzzles, TV/Movie themed ones, and sea scenes with the classic sinking sailboats.  Congrats to Jeff for being the Champion of the 11th annual JCC Poker Tourney in Indiana!  Today’s song is dedicated to you, bud.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/24/21

TSA Check: Self-Service Checkpoints And Fewer Pat-Downs? Yes, Please.

Better three hours too soon than a minute late.”   —   William Skakespeare

(Maybe the TSA should use this quote to get folks to the airport ahead of their international flights!  After 35 years of being married to a Filipina I am far less prompt than I was raised to be.  But, I still strive to be on time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
