Jumble Solved – 02/09/23

Giggling toddler gleefully rolls around with litter of golden retriever  pups | Daily Mail Online

Visual Description:  Kissing K-9s!


Clue/Question:  When the dogs started playfully “kissing” her face, they were – – –

Wildfire Golden Retrievers of Arizona, Golden Retrievers, Chandler, AZ


(Very cute Jumble!  And it’s an answer that I don’t remember seeing before.  But I do have two questions.  Why does the clue/question use the word “dogs”, when clearly they are puppies?  And, why is the word kissing in quotation marks?  It doesn’t seem necessary to me.  I think there have been a few commercials that show a little kid frolicking on the ground with a bunch of puppies.  I know that this has kind of been one of my daughter’s fantasies!  Especially with Golden Retriever puppies!

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  SCAMPI was a little surprising to me.  Especially when you see the definition of the word, which is:  large shrimp or prawns.  So, wouldn’t shrimp scampi be redundant?  I think that the definition should be revised, as you can have other scampis, like chicken scampi.  That might be the only other one, but you know what I mean.  The definition should be about the garlicky sauce, and not the shrimp.  All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  The only one I had to think about was “maicsp”!  LOL!  The answer letter layout was a testy ten letter jumble.  I think it disguised the final answer pretty well.

Great cartoon of the little girl frolicking with five puppies!  She looks to be having the time of her life.  And her parents are preparing for – what used to be known as – a “Kodak moment”!  The little girl won’t need any kind of photograph, as she’ll remember this day for the rest of her life.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Here you go:
    Scampi; In the UK it refers to meat of one special prawn >>>The Langoustine<<<
    A small lobster found in the colder waters of Scotland, Ireland and Norway*

    As for me, I have to mend my nets,,, Cold waters, Hmmph!!

    I’m with you Unc, I always thought the Scampi part had more to do with the garlic sauce rather than the shrimp itself 🍤. I do love Shrimp Scampi though. Delicious, but gives one bad breath. 💨 🦐.

    Speaking of bad breath, the mouth breathers over there 👉 coughed 12x y’day with exactly half (again) by Halitoses Harriet. 🙋🏻‍♀️ 💨. Tks a lot 🌬

    Word is that Sleepy Joe 💤 shot down another balloon 🎈 today? Can anyone confirm this? Details remain sketchy. I’ll tune into Fox News © to see if they have anything to say. Always fair and balanced. 😂

    With love ❤️,

    The New York Daily News reported it as a UFO, Smitty. What did Fairly Unbalanced have to say about it?
