Clue/Question:  They missed their chance to buy the boathouse, but they weren’t going to – – –

Answer:  DWELL ON IT

(Yes.  I know.  One of the guys screwed up the clue/question, but it’s an understandable mistake.  It should say “houseboat” and not boathouse.  You can actually live on a houseboat, but you would keep your boat in a boathouse.  So, you couldn’t really dwell on a boathouse.  I suppose you could dwell in it though.  Unless you’re completely inflexible I think that you probably saw past this – rare –  minor mistake.

All of today’s clue words are classic old favorites.  However, all four jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  No real stumpers though.  The answer letter layout was nifty nine letter jumble.  Nothing about it gave the final answer away.  The leading nature of the clue/question made for a quick solve.

I enjoyed the cartoon of the older couple looking at a houseboat that they had hoped to purchase.  No newspaper delivery on Saturday for me, so I had to print it out from the e-edition.  I lose a lot of detail that way, but I liked the gull, the SOLD sign, the couch, and what looks like a WELCOME mat.  I also like the light/marker on the  . . . is it a jetty, or a breakwater?  I get them mixed up.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    They’d be ne’er-do-well dwellers anyway.

    Did you miss the classic sinking sailboàt just adjacent to the lady’s left cheek?
    You have to zoom into the frame to see it on the horizon.
    Be well!

    Yes the fellas missed the boat with this one. It’s ok though I forgive them. I’ve never been on a houseboat, but I’ve been in a boathouse many times. 🛶 🏡 Also enjoy the pontoon boat. Underrated water vessel 🚢 for sure. Enjoy the song as well 🎵. Did you see the sinking sailboat ⛵️ in the cartoon? It was well hidden.

    Speaking of missing the boat, the sailors over there 👉 sunk 13 times y’day, with only 5 from their Skipper 🙋🏻‍♀️. Sheesh. 🤮. Stay safe out there! 🤥

    Have a fun vacation Unc. I’ll keep you posted on them 👉 while you are away. When you say Jeff’s blog, do you mean those guys 👉? I call it Angela’s Way, not JJs. Maybe he has a different blog too? I’ve never been there. I’ll check google maps 🗺 for directions.

    Floating in slow motion…. On the pontoon 🎼

    Unfortunately, yes, I did, John! I looked real hard, but the print-out from the e-edition of my newspaper gets pretty grainy. I was hoping for it to be there, but I just couldn’t see it. Thanks for telling me it WAS there! — YUR

    As I just told John, Smitty, yes, I missed the boat. LOL! As for other things . . . the internet allows for all kinds of anonymity, Smitty. — YUR

    Ok I get you now Unc. I was wondering why JJ never congratulated you on your anniversary. Jealously doesn’t look very good on him. 👀

    Ps – and we do know he reads this blog daily. Even multiple timers per day so I’ve heard. 😆

    I think he USED to, Smitty. But because I wouldn’t completely censure you he decided to end our little bro-manse . . . on a couple different levels. I bear him no ill will though. He’s still the dad of two great, pretty grown kids, and he has a lovely wife. He’s definitely no monster! He’s still welcome here at the blog, if he chooses to visit/comment.
