Clue/Question:  The psychiatrist dried her clothes on low heat because she didn’t want to – – –

(I guess this pun is more shrinky, than it is stinky!  I think I’ve heard that most psychiatrists actually see a shrink themselves.  I guess they don’t subscribe to “Physician heal thyself!”, which actually has a few meanings.  Maybe they’re keeping this other famous quote in mind:  “A Man Who Is His Own Lawyer Has A Fool for a Client”.  But everybody can use some help every once in a while, and you can’t always see your own problems as another set of eyes might.

Another day where all of the clue words appear on the ralis95 clue word database, yet all of the jumbles appear to be new!  It actually took me a few looks to see both “karate” and “encore”, one being of Japanese origins and the other being French.  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  I thought it was well laid out and cryptic.  But the cartoon’s dialog and the clue/question kind of screamed out SHRINK!

Cute cartoon of the couple in their laundry room.  From the way the husband is speaking it sounds like he is a psychiatrist as well.  So, I think it would be nearly impossible for her to not SEE A SHRINK.  Ya know, when it comes to those kind of sweaters, if you don’t want to take them to a dry cleaners, you just wash them in cool water.  After the spin cycle is over you just find a place to let the sweater lie flat to dry.  It’s much safer than risking them in the dryer.  Even on low heat.  “Ancient Chinese secret!”  LOL!  That reminds me, Kung Hei Fat Choi to all those who follow the Chinese New Year!  So sad that a pathetic old man took out his deep-seated aggression on a group of innocent people.  I think he could’ve used a good psychiatrist.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    All of my sweaters shrunk over the last 2-3 years Unc. And I never even put them in the dryer. Dry clean ONLY. The XL just isn’t built as is used to be. The Manufacturers at the factories don’t like to use as much fabric as they used to so XL is the new L. But I refuse to buy an XXL so I guess I’ll just lose some weight. Things just aren’t the way they used to be.

    Speaking of the old days…. Remember when Henri Arnold and Bob Lee did the Jumble ™️ ? Man those were the days. Clever cartoons, fun new words. Punny answers? Now the new guys are very touchy and can’t say anything funny in the blogs. It’s like they get upset when you point out that those guys over there 👉 posted nine times y’day with five by the lead knitter. 🙋🏻‍♀️. Nope can’t say that without a scolding by the new guy JJ. You just can’t say that any more!

    Oh well. It’s just good clean fun. 🤩 as Rodney 🤴 once said…. Can’t we all just get along? Please?

    I loved the Jumble then, with Henri & Bob, and I love it today, with Jeff & David. Jeff and David have brought it into the 21st Century, as it should be. As far as the objections that Jeff has brought up, I have a sneaking suspicion as to what is behind it, but I couldn’t/wouldn’t voice it due to the fact that I don’t have the proof, and I like Jeff. I like them both. I just don’t appreciate the shaming/admonishing, for things that I’m allowing a poster of mine to comment about. I always trust my own judgment, and I have the ability to edit out any specifics, or anything that I deem inappropriate.

    PS. I vote that you lose the weight, Smitty. Besides fitting better into your sweaters, your body will feel better, and you will live longer.
