Jumble Spoiler – 04/29/21

Margaret Hamilton — Miss Almira Gulch and The Wicked Witch Of The West, The  Wizard Of Oz (1939) : OldSchoolCool

Visual Description:  It’s a Twista!  A twista!”

Answer:  DOGGONE IT

(Fairly predictable pun this time.  Still cute though.  To me, Elvira Gulch was scarier than the Wicked Witch of the West!  That old biddy really had a stick up her butt!  She didn’t need fireballs or flying monkeys to put fear into people.  Just that puss of hers.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we have definitely seen “cgoek” before.  None of them tripped me up today.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  Couldn’t hide the final answer from me though.

For me the cartoon was the saving grace!  I’d buy that as Kansas!  A really great Elvira Gulch, with her bicycle and both baskets!  And, of course the burgeoning twister on the horizon.  Toto should be home in no time!  Tough luck, Miss Gulch.  Very fun Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
