Jumble Spoiler – 03/21/22

How An Auto Repair Shop Determines If A Car Is A Total Loss And What You  Need To Know: - Rocco's Collision

Visual Description:  Rectum?  Damn near killed ’em!  (Old joke punchline.)

EKTNO  =  TOKEN,  LOYID  =  DOILY,  NOGOAL  =  LAGOON,  TBRUET  =  BUTTER   —   Giving us:  TEDILAOTT

Clue/Question:  They added up the costs to repair the Math teacher’s car and then – – –

Determining a Total Loss Vehicle | Morris Bart, LLC

Answer:  TOTALED IT

(This sums things up nicely!  It’s only “bad news” though if you’ve got crappy insurance.  But there IS the inconvenience aspect, regardless of how good your insurance is.  You’ll probably need a rental for a few days, at least, until you can buy a new car.  I’ve only been through this once, when a UPS/FedEx type truck rear-ended our Chrysler Grand Caravan, and totaled it.  I never really liked having a mini-van, though it did come in handy more than a few times, but it was kind of sad going to the body shop and retrieving personal items from it.

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “loyid” some time before.  For half a second I went to gallon, before realizing it was “lagoon”.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  Pretty hard disguising today’s final answer though!

Great cartoon of the stereotypical Math teacher, at the auto body shop.  Gotta love the name of the place:  “Tic Tac Towing Co.”!  Not sure if this was all Jeff’s idea, or if it was David’s suggestion.  Drive safely, folks!  Fun way to start the week.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I was recently rear-ended..hit and run. Fortunately no real damage to the car nor to me! But, raised my blood pressure a bit!!! I was sooooo angry.

    And speaking of raising my blood pressure. I’m not sure if kindergartners are putting our paper together or what! I actually had the Sunday jumble in the paper one day last week! Cartoons are missing, but we have a whole page of games. The papers are going to the dogs!!!!

    Hey there, LindaLee! Lot’s of things to tick us off theses days! One day last week my paper ran a funnies page with about half cartoons that they’ve never run before! So, of course half of my regulars were missing. And, I just got a letter saying that they’re upping the monthly subscription to $71.00! That is $852.00 for the year, for only 6 days of actual delivery! I think I’ve finally reached my breaking point, and I’m going to cancel home delivery.

    And, you know what? I think they WANT us to cancel! — YUR

    I think you are right!!! They no longer want to do print and think they will price us out. We got priced out about two, maybe three years ago. And the on-line is sketchy! The content is hardly local, and I could give a crabs leg for all of the USA Today content that is taking up most of the paper. So sad, so very sad. Times, they are a’changin! LL

    I just threatened to cancel, and they lowered my monthly from $71.00 to $44.00. Still a little pricey for only 6 days’ delivery, but somewhat better. — YUR
