Jumble Solved – 11/11/22

Veteran's Day- City Offices and Facilities Closed | Livingston, Montana

Visual Description:  Veterans Day parade.

PMLIE  =  IMPEL,  FYINT  =  NIFTY,  CARNEP  =  PRANCE,  PLUCTS  =  SCULPT   —   Giving us:  PETYRAESCP

Clue/Question:  The Veterans Day parade was a free event making it possible for people to – – –

Veterans Day Parade 2022 - Visit Harrisonburg Virginia in the Shenandoah  Valley

Answer:  PAY RESPECT

(Which is something that we all should do, regardless of one’s feelings about the specific wars and occupations where they may have served.  Though they all may not be “heroes”, they served!  The supply clerks and cooks, etc., and all rear echelon people, are all essential to the effort.  Without them the fighting troops could not do their jobs.

All of today’s clue words are veterans – of a sort – of the ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen both “pmlie” and “plucts” in earlier Jumbles.  I hardly ever use the word “impel”.  I probably should try using it more.  The answer letter layout was nifty ten letter jumble.  I thought it was decently cryptic.  The final answer letter slots helped me to see the answer.

Fine cartoon of the people lining up to see the parade.  Some of them appear to be veterans themselves.  I’m not quite sure what that dark blob is behind the father with the little girl.  LOL!  I’m guessing it’s the hair of a female parade watcher, but I can’t be certain.  A very appropriate Jumble for this national day of respect.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 11/10/22

How Many Crows Make A Murder | On The Feeder

Visual Description:  Calling Mr. Hitchcock!

OPSLI  =  SPOIL,  CEWKR  =  WRECK,  GAAMEN  =  MANAGE,  COUNBE  =  BOUNC  —   Giving us:  SPLWRCMAABOE

Clue/Question:  Having so many crows right outside their window was beginning to – – –

The 15 Most Controversial TV Series Finales of All Time — Best Life

Answer:  CAWS A PROBLEM

(This Jumble pun is for the birds?  It is sufficiently stinky.  A murder of crows can be anywhere from three to ten birds.  One crow can caws quite a racket.  Seven, or more, of those suckers . . . crowing . . . would probably be unbearable.  But the guy can always just jack up the volume on his TV, and drown them out.  Or, he could just run out there and scare them away.  Crows, like all birds, have a healthy fear of humans.

All four clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  But it looks like all four jumbles are coming up as new!  It took me a couple of looks to see “spoil”, but the other three came to me right away.  The answer letter layout was a twirly twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was wonderfully cryptic.  The single letter word had to be A, and the quotation marks were what gave me CAWS.  From the PLRMBOE the word PROBLEM completed the gag.

Great cartoon of the annoyed couple, who are having a tough time watching Jeopardy, while the crows congregate on their lawn!  If it’s the Tournament of Champions they probably should be thanking the noisy crows.  The vast majority of the questions are really tough!  I can usually get from 1/2 to 2/3s of the questions with the regular show, but not with the TOC.  A great Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
