Answer:  LIKE NIGHT AND DAY

(Like the difficulty of the last two days’ Jumbles to today’s!  Not that today’s was super hard, but any time you have to unscramble twelve letters, to make three words, it’s going to be more of a challenge.  Great Jumble pun, utilizing a well-worn idiom.  I just heard that Christine McVie, of Fleetwod Mac, just passed away, at the age of 79.  Another piece of my adolescence has bitten the dust.  And the world has lost another songbird.  Rest In Peace, Christine.

Believe it, or not, it looks like we have a brand new clue word today, in “chilly”.  I suppose it is possible that we’ve seen it in an earlier Sunday Jumble, but it is not currently on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  So, soon it shall be.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  I can only confirm that we’ve seen “penti” in an earlier Jumble.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic, it did a fine job of disguising the final answer.  At first I thought I might be in trouble, but the answer struck me like a bolt of lightening.

Fine classroom scene cartoon.  It looks like the teacher is giving a little language studies class.  I think the opposite of an 8 or 9 year old is ralis95!  The boss-man is really getting up there.  Well, none of us are getting any younger, are we?  Let’s make the best of everyday.  Who knows if it might be our last!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    We are on a virtual scrambled eggs and bacon on a roll today, puzzle fans. Uncle Rave’s puzzle solves and commentaries are positively sublime! And . . . they’re all American made!

    As always, my best

    Why thank you, Smitty! So kind of you to heap such RELEVANT praise on my humble blog. (Did I edit your post to protect the irrelevant target of your intent? Hmmm! Could be, Rabbit!) Have a nice day, buddy.

    Yay! A new clue word! And, that is one reason i don’t miss reading your blog Unc…I don’t want to miss anything! AND, how in the world did I miss that Christine McVie passed away!! Good grief.

    I’m caught up on all jumbles — just catching up on the blog. LindaLee
