Clue/Question:  When they completed the jigsaw puzzle, they were – – –

(A pun for puzzle people.  Jigsaw puzzles are great family fun.  Although, not all family members are into doing puzzles.  My mom and sister and I loved doing them, but not my brother.  Now, my daughter and I love to do them, but not my wife, or son, so much.

All familiar old clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  The only one to trip me up any was “vealh”.  And just for half a minute.  The answer letter layout was an entertaining eleven letter jumble.  I thought it did an admirable job disguising the final answer.

Great cartoon of a happy family.  They all look so proud of themselves for completing the puzzle.  I can’t quite make out what the jigsaw puzzle’s picture is.  It looks like some kind of band performing on a stage.  But which band I couldn’t tell you.  I even went on a few online sites, but still couldn’t make it out.  Anyone have a clue?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    If you think long enough, I’m sure it WILCO-me to you, Yur!

    I was just checking in to see if you had made it back….. or not. I’m pleased to see it was the former. Good for you!

    Hi UR. The band is Wilco. https://tinyurl.com/py22kpf6
    Hope all is well…🙋🏻‍♀️

    LOL! Thanks, Mike! — YUR

    Thanks, Ange! I figured as much, considering Jeff is a Wilco fan-atic, but just couldn’t make anything out. Not in the newspaper, or the newspaper’s online version, which is larger. And, even when I went to to Jumble.com all I saw was a greenish blur. But, I could make out – from my newspaper – figures, likely playing instruments, at mic stands. Welcome back! — YUR

    You’re welcome. I always check the Chicago Tribs website, or I’d never see the minute details. And yes, Wilco is a well-known favorite of Jeff’s. In fact, you may enjoy this. It’s the puzzle of … November 12th, 2019. https://tinyurl.com/46wtydrr , and if you look real closely, you’ll notice that it looks quite familiar. It’s the final piece to the puzzle! 😉 Have a good one, UR. Be well and stay safe out there…🧩🙋🏻‍♀️

    Does the online often leave out the given word, Ange??? It looks like that one was MUSIC TO his EARS, but they’re not showing the his! That definitely looks like the outline of the puzzle! I guess Jeff is doing his drawings more for the online, than the newspapers! Thanks again. — YUR

    You know, I’m not sure now 🤷🏻‍♀️…I know they used to, but I think the format’s changed a little. I’d have to take a look. But yes, the given word HIS is missing in the solution here. I don’t pay attention to any of the wording with it though, I just go for the gold! 😉 And yes, this is definitely the pic in y’day’s puzzle. But as far as what Jeff does, I doubt he has any say in what the newspapers print. Who of us gets a 1 inch puzzle, and who lucks out with a 3 1/2 – 4. They butcher his art work! My paper prints a considerably average sized panel, but the on-line digital copy that’s included with my subscription is much larger, and very good. Plus, I can enlarge it further if I choose…but
    it still pales in comparison to what the Trib offers. In fact, what I sent you is minute compared to what you’d see if you went directly into the site. The puzzle itself on line is huge…maybe about 7×7 or there about. Which is why I always go there to get a bird’s eye view. It’s the only way to glean all the little gems that Jeff sneaks in there. It’s amazing what you can uncover! And that’s how I recognized the jigsaw puzzle…I remembered it from his original drawing. So…that’s the story! 🧩🙋🏻‍♀️

    Ok. I quickly looked back a bit, and the first one I came to was the puzzle of 01/31/21. We were given the word WAS that day, and it wasn’t included in the solution boxes. So I guess they’re still omitting it.🙋🏻‍♀️

    He doesn’t have any say in what the newspapers do, but he does have control of his artwork. He’s got to know that the puzzle couldn’t be given justice by any newspaper. I’ve seen papers that run the small versions. My paper runs the standard size – larger – one. He’s got to know what will and won’t show up in the papers, which is why I said he’s drawing more for the online crowd now. Today’s cartoon was another good example. I had to struggle to read the sign on the side of the church door. I’m sure that the smaller version, in some papers, would have been impossible to read. But, I’m also relatively sure that it was easily read online. But, I get it. Newspapers are a dying art. The vast majority of people working the Jumble these days are doing it online. I’m just one of the surviving dinosaurs. — YUR

    Sounds like another one of the online wrinkles they need to try to iron out! — YUR

  11. 11 Angela April 10, 2021 at 4:59 am

    …But I don’t think this is anything new, UR. As far as I know, Jeff’s always hidden the little gems in his artwork. It’s just that before these online versions, the little details weren’t able to be seen, even with a magnifying glass. And you’re right, the sign in the Choir puzzle is hardly visible in most newspaper versions. But that holds true for every days puzzle. Sad, but true. And if I remember correctly, one of your readers, a while back, mentioned the missing given word, which could be a bit of a problem if you’re solving without a print copy. But this is why I use both. So, put me in with the dinosaurs too, I guess. I have no intention of ever giving up my paper! 🙋🏻‍♀️

    New is kind of relative, Ange. I’ve been doing these at least as long as you – probably longer – and there were not always “hidden gems”. I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree . . . because I’m right, and you’re not. LOL! — YUR

  13. 13 Angela April 10, 2021 at 10:54 am

    …And it’s best I leave that last comment alone! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

    Dang skippy, Missy! LOL! — YUR

    Angela !

    Did Unc just pull the “seniority” card ? WOW ! ! That’s Power ! !
    I guess we can leave that where it is. 🙂

    Truth be told, she’s probably a little older than me, lwc. I just don’t need anyone trying to tell me otherwise while I’m on a rant! She’s a good egg though. We get along. — YUR
