Jumble Solved – 03/30/23

Clue/Question:  Whoever came up with the expression “turn on a dime” – – –

Mercury Dime Values | Discover Their Worth


(An excellent, challenging, stinky pun!  It has a slightly familiar ring to it, but if we have had it before it must’ve been a long long time ago.  And likely in a different context.  When I was a wee lad I had nine dimes, and I thought that I was a wealthy boy.  I had them in the pocket of my short pants, and when my friends and I were playing, rolling down the grass, they all fell out of my pocket!  I searched for them, but to no avail.  I was heartbroken.  Minor tragedies have a way of sticking with you!  Hey, in today’s money those nine dimes would be worth a little more than nine dollars!  It’s possible that some of them were Mercury Dimes too.  They’re pretty rare these days, and valuable.  But of course I likely would have spent them anyway.  But the loss has always stayed with me.

Mr. Hoyt has used four familiar Jumble clue words today.  He even went retro on three of the jumbles.  But we’ve definitely NOT seen “nstoaa” before today.  That was the only one to give me any trouble.  We had CHIDE yesterday, and CHIVE today, and CHIRP a few days ago.  Can CHIME be far behind?  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was magnificently cryptic!  I was not picking up on the additional coins in the dialog, and struggled to come up with the final answer.  I figured the first word probably ended in ED, but that was it.  So, I rewrote the letters into vowel and consonant groupings, in alphabetical order, or course.  From this I saw PHRASE, and the EIOCDN gave me COINED.

A fine elementary school classroom setting cartoon.  Possibly middle school.  I always try to have coins when I go shopping.  Lots of places either don’t take cash, or they complain that they can’t make change!  When I went to a spring training game – Dodgers vs. Rangers – at Camelback Ranch stadium, they wouldn’t accept cash!  Only credit card.  $17 for a craft beer, but worth it.  $21 – and change – for one regular dog and one big – chili – dog.  It was a Dodger’s home game, so I guess I had my first Dodger Dog!  Oh, the Rangers won, 3 – 1.  Be well and do good, friends.  Play ball!)   —   YUR

    Ballpark food is consistently bad and overpriced. Fenway franks are very good, but $8.00 🌭? Same with the beer 🍺. Since I was a little kid going to watch the Red Sox games with my Dad and brother, we’ve always got Sausage and Pepper sandwiches outside the park. You can smell them grilling from miles away ☁️. It’s amazing how a smell can bring back memories. ⚾️

    Speaking of smelling, the old folks home 👉 pooped 💩 14x y’day with just 5 by their Covid 🦠 Queen 🙋🏻‍♀️. She can barely muster up the strength to post a “Tks you” lately. 🐢. ITS LIKE WE DON’T EVEN KNIW HER ANYMORE. Please get better 🤒. We all miss your wisdom and funny remarks 🤥.

    David L. Hoyt (aka the brains 🧠 behind The Jumble ™️ ) certainly is a genius with words and cryptic answers. I really need to give him more credit, now that you mention it. Kudos to the king 🤴 of words! Now if his little buddy could keep up with his side of the cartoon! 🤡

    Have a great Friday Folks! #FreeDonald. 😝

    Don’t be hating on the JK, Smitty. He does a fine job with the cartoons, and he’s generally a good egg. A good family man, who donated one of his kidneys. And, he loves dogs! His affinity for the other site is . . . understandable. — YUR
