(Another fairly ambitious Jumble!  Utilizing a very common phrase too.  The two of them, have now twice, given each other the gift of time pieces.  My wife is a huge fan of watches.  Growing up, and in my earlier 20’s, I couldn’t be bothered wearing a watch.  When I would ask this girl I was sorta “dating” what time it was, she would regularly say:  time for you to buy a watch!  Of course I ignored her.  We weren’t really “dating” anyway!  But the girl who later became my wife bought me a watch, so I’d never have to ask her that question!  Then, for many many years I always wore a wristwatch.  I still have a good number of them.  But, because of the advent of cellphones, I haven’t worn one in a number of years . . . again.  I guess I’m regressing?  I never cared for the jewelry aspect of watches.  I just liked the functionality, and ease, of them.  With a cellphone you still have to pull it out of your pocket, and usually press a button to get the time.

It’s one of those days where Hoyt has given us all very familiar clue words, but he’s gone out of his way to give us all new jumbles.  But his thrilling thirteen letter jumble answer letter layout was a work of art!  Beautifully cryptic, it did a wonderful job of disguising the final answer.

Jeff K. has been making a point, to counter an ignorant commenter who questioned his use of certain characters.  Arguably, he’s gone a little overboard, but what the heck!  I, for one, would like to see him give equal time to more Asian characters.  Maybe even some indigenous Americans, if done in a non-stereotypical fashion.  The sky’s the limit!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I’m like your wife, Unc. I love watches and have MANY. Each one carefully selected!! But, the husb has purchased me a Fitbit watch. So, if I want to keep up with my steps, sleep, etc., I don’t wear my wonderful watches. It is quite the dilemma! 😦

    You don’t REALLY need the Fitbit watch if you carry a cellphone, LL. They can track your steps and stuff, and I’m sure there are apps for sleep and stuff. Wear your nice watches and put the Fitbit in the drawer! — YUR

    Gee, LindaLee, accept my sympathies for having so many “wonderful” watches to wear.

    Every watch I’ve ever had I’ve worn out and had to let them go.

    The watch my mother gave as a graduation gift when I left the Academy never left my arm for the ten years I was aboard ship, in the ocean, in the air, the forests, the desert, etc, until one day it had enough and was done.

    I missed that watch and haven’t worn one since.

    It’s been awhile since I’ve seen anyone wearing a watch; instead, they’re staring at cellphones. I can’t stand cellphones. 😦

    I like Unc, answer better.

    You have nice watches; you may as well wear them.

    BTW, I hope your recovery is complete, or nearly so.

    That’s a good thought LWC — but, I don’t carry my phone around with me. I could do that when I’m walking for exercising, or doing an exercise video. I’ll have t think about that! Thank you for the idea.

    Oops Unc … sorry, I put my reply to LWC! Y’all are kind to offer suggestions.

    No problem, LindaLee! ❤ All the comments have to go through me anyway. — YUR
