(A jaunty Sunday Jumble pun!  More challenging, and fresher, than yesterday’s Jumble.  And, I feel there might have been a bit of misdirection.  With the mention of the iron, I was initially thinking the final answer would have something to do with pressing, or steaming.  But after looking at the answer letter layout I was able to see INCREASED.  And the remaining SSEAECR gave me CREASES.

I knew immediately that none of the clue words were new, but I ran them by the ralis95 clue word database regardless.  Only two of the jumbles are coming up as new, as we’ve definitely seen “sloens”, “kbeyar”, “safoic” and “gnered” in previous Jumbles.  A sensational sixteen letter jumble made up the answer letter layout.  I thought it was sufficiently cryptic.

Great cartoon of the couple unpacking their suitcases, upon arriving in their stateroom.  Lots of great detail in the cartoon, capped off with the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  I hope for smooth sailing for these two.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  On this day in Black History, Hammering Hank Aaron and John Howard Morrow were born!  Mr. Howard, who was born in 1910, was one of our first African American high-level diplomats, under Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy.  And I don’t think I need to tell anyone who Hank Aaron was, but he was born on this day in 1934.  Find out about these great Americans and others at   —   YUR

    Henry Aaron played before my time, but his statistics prove that he was one of the all-time greats. Unfortunately Hank didn’t get to play in many post-season games since the Braves were a historically bad team during his career. 1957 was his lone Wold Series victory and lone MVP at age 23. The rest of career he was a compiler is stats. ⚾️ Black or white, we was a very good baseball player 🦇

    Speaking of compilers, the veterans over there 👉 bunted 11x y’day with six of them by their manager Casey Stengel 🙋🏻‍♀️ Very slow Sunday indeed. 🐢

    So the search 👀 is on for the remains of the Chinese Spy Balloon 🎈. What will they find? Pork fried rice? Egg rolls? Chow Mein? 🥢. Or just spy surveillance computers sending sensitive information to Beijing? Sleepy Joe 💤 should have taken that down much sooner. He’s always a day late and a dollar short. Tackled the QB after the game was over. Too bad 😴

    Fair and Balanced,

    Way to parrot the partisan talking points, Smitty. Our military was jamming the Chinese transmissions from the get go, so they allowed it to pass over the mainland, so they could ultimately shoot the balloon down over water, to better retrieve the spying apparatus. This will allow the military to ascertain the sophistication of the Chinese equipment, and to see what data they were trying to obtain. Shooting it down over land would’ve rendered the remains useless. Hey, and at least Joe KNEW that there was spy balloon. The Trump camp was completely in the dark about the three that crossed U.S airspace during his term.

    I think that’s a buoy in the background. But it’s funny how one of your readers somehow managed to pivot from a Jumble solution to a political commentary

    That’s just Smitty being Smitty, Type Writer. We have a number of wing-nut followers on this blog. I welcome healthy debate. My newspaper has already been recycled, so I can no longer see the cartoon. I suppose that could’ve been a buoy, but Jeff generally tries to give us the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon with each nautical themed cartoon. Thanks for commenting! — YUR
