Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 03/06/22

A Family Vacation at Majestic Dude Ranch Colorado

Visual Description:  Tender foots(?) at a dude ranch.

VOTEMI  =  MOTIVE,  SUFINO  =  FUSION,  LTUCPS  =  SCULPT,  NOCICI  =  ICONIC,  CACURE  =  ACCRUE,  DOLUME  =  MODULE   —   Giving us:  MTEFIOUTONIAREMD

Clue/Question:  After two hours on horseback, they were done.  Two hours was just the – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  “(4-letters)”  (6-letters)  (2-letters)  (4-letters)

For Sale: Roy Rogers' Trusty Horse, Trigger : NPR

Answer:  RIDE AMOUNT OF TIME

(With a carefully placed hyphen, this could easily have been a double pun.  Instead of just being a pun on right, with “ride”, they could have used a-mount, to make it a double horse pun.  With puns being – purportedly – one of the lowest forms of humor, why not go all in?  Two riders, two horses, why not two puns?  Seeing as how Hoyt is the relative rookie here at the Jumble – LOL – I guess we’ll just have to give him a pass.  But you better shape up, cuz.  Rumor has it that Jeff has approached Stephan Pastis about replacing you.  Don’t you just love rumors???  Especially the ones started by Yer Uncle Rave???  LOL!

There were no new clue words today, although SPOOK is still available.  I’m wondering now if Hoyt is trying to avoid any word that might be considered politically incorrect.  I just checked, and CHINK is also not on the ralis95 clue word database.  But strangely enough SLANT is!  Maybe, that particular word pre-dates Hoyt’s tenure with the Jumble?  I don’t know.  I did notice that SPADE also hasn’t been used.  But just because a handful of common/everyday words have been used as racial slurs, at one time or another, is it wise to ignore/exclude them?  Shouldn’t the legitimate usage outweigh the slang?  I’d like to think that intellect should prevail over emotion, but apparently I’m in the minority in these matters.  But I digress.  Half of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  However, we have definitely seen “votemi”, “cacure” and “dolume” at some point in past Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a stupendous sixteen letter jumble.  Absolutely nothing obvious about it on its own.  The final answer slots’ layout, and particularly the one with quotation marks, made for a surprisingly quick solve.

Loved the cartoon of the “Jumble” dude ranch!  A couple of great horsies, watering down, after the two hour ride.  It looks like the wife is holding her backside!  With my bony butt I have a hard time sitting in a wooden chair!  Don’t know how long I could stand being on horseback.  Great Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, folks.  “Happy trails to you!”)   —   YUR

    Not to sound all MAGA, or anything, but those were definitely simpler times . . . for most of us. — YUR

    OMG—Roy Rogers was my all-time hero. Loved him! Went through the museum in Branson several times. The first time the husb had to practically drag me out, crying — I kept running back in to look at something else, again. Roy’s son and band did a little show and then they would show one of the TV shows. I have several pics of me and the band and of Roy’s son and grandson and me. Simpler time indeed. Wonderful time. And it just brought my daddy right back to me. I watched all of the westerns with him.

    Glad I could play a small part in bringing back a warm memory, LL. — YUR

    Now I get it LindaLee.

    Roy Rogers is not about Roy; it’s about your daddy.
    Were you a daddy’s girl ?

    It’s okay to admit it; there’s no shame in it ! 🙂

    I think it’s kind of a package deal, lwc. You can like a certain person, AND they bring back good memories of a loved one. I’m a big fan of Nat King Cole, and I know both my Mom and my Aunt (Mom’s sister) were fans of his. “Straighten Up And Fly Right”, lwc!

    lwc—I think Unc nailed it. I loved all of the westerns===well most. To me, being young, they were thrilling, they ended good, the bad guy got it in the end. And then there was Marverick — loved that show too, but always thought it was funny. And loved, loved, loved it when Bart came into town. Guess it all brings be back to a great time in growing up history for me. LL

    lwc — can’t say I was really a daddy’s girl. But I was definitely my grandaddy’s girl!!!!

    LL

    I haven’t paid close attention, lately. I hope your recovery has been going well.

    lwc — yes, I’m doing well. My range of motion is really good. I’m careful, but am so happy I had the surgery. I am still doing my exercises/PT — maybe every other day now. Don’t want to lose what I’ve gained. Thank you for remembering.LL

    Glad to hear you are improving/progressing in your recovery, LL. My neighbor had successful shoulder surgery and is doing well. I’m still putting mine off . . . for now. — YUR

  12. 12 lwc April 1, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    Glad to hear from you LL and to hear that you’re improving. I’m hoping that I can hold myself together as well as you’re doing.

    Keep improving ! (-:
