How Long Is Too Long to Push During Labor? | Parents

Visual Description:  The birthing room.

LISAA  =  ALIAS,  LEOHL  =  HELLO,  CERNAP  =  PRANCE,  BYIULS  =  BUSIL  —   Giving us:  ALAHLOPRCBSIY

Clue/Question:  For mom, having a baby involves a lot of – – –

Answer:  PHYSICAL LABOR

(Let’s be real here, folks.  It may take two to Tango, but delivering a baby is all on the mom!  Dad just stands around, trying to get mom to say:  Hee, hee, hee, hoo over and over again.  It does help some, but it pretty much relegates the dad to simply a cheerleader.  Mom does ALL the work.

All familiar old clue words.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve seen both “lisaa” and “leohl” in earlier Jumbles.  No real head scratchers here.  The answer letter layout was a terrific thirteen letter jumble.  I thought that it was wonderfully cryptic.  I figured right away that the five letter word was LABOR, and PHYSICAL immediately followed.

Great cartoon of the LDR – Labor, Delivery, and Recovery – room.  The husband has to be careful of his wife’s grip throughout all of this.  During this intense period of time, his petite bride can exhibit the strength of The Hulk!  And, try not to be glib, Dad!  Mom is not in a joking mood.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

W. M. Thackeray | Novelist | Blue Plaques | English Heritage

Good humor is one of the best articles one can wear in society.”   —   William Makepeace Thackery

(We really need to get back to being people of good humor!  Life is so short, folks.  Too many of us have become polarized and hostile.  We need to remember that we work best as a nation that values the saying:  “I may disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”  That attitude is what fosters a spirit of cooperation and teamwork.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 09/05/21

Watch the cameo-heavy first trailer for 'Jay and Silent Bob Reboot'

Visual Description:  Jay and Silent Bob buy a boat!

GIGELW  =  WIGGLE,  GAROEF  =  FORAGE,  RSYEDS  =  DRESSY,  RETOPX  =  EXPORT,  LNAAUN  =  ANNUAL,  VNTIEI  =  INVITE   —   Giving us:  WLAGDSSEPNNAII

Clue/Question:  When they made an offer on the schooner, the – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  “(4-letters)”  (3-letters)  (7-letters)

Rosario Dawson - La biographie de Rosario Dawson avec Voici.fr

Answer:  SAIL WAS PENDING

(Well, I certainly hope the sail is included!  A schooner without a sail is like a car without an engine.  You are not going to get very far.  Not without a lot of manual effort at least.  I never pictured Jay and Silent Bob as sailors though.  They always seem more like a couple of land lubbers to me.  I’m a big fan of their movies though.  Especially “Clerks” and “Clerks II”.  Boy, do I love me some Rosario Dawson!  What a gorgeous Latina!

Well, it seems we have seen all of today’s clue words before.  But, five of the six jumbles are coming up as new.  Only “vntiei” has definitely been used before.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately this morning.  But the answer letter layout was formidable fourteen letter jumble.  Sufficiently cryptic.  But because of the great cartoon, and the quotation marks surrounding the first word slot, I quickly saw SAIL, then WAS.  And then, of course, PENDING just fit the flow.

Love the cartoon!  Besides our heroes and the salesperson, we have a gull on a tower, at the end of a jetty.  And we have the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  Always a welcome sight.  I just hope that Jay and Silent Bob don’t meet the same fate!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
