Jumble Solved – 03/31/23

Derek's job as a mattress tester might sound like a dream but it is not all  about jumping on beds - Wales Online

Visual Description:  A narrative of repose?


Clue/Question:  Daniel Hayes began making mattresses in Sealy, Texas in 1881, and the – – –

This Company Will Pay You $33,000 a Year to Test Mattresses Full-Time


(Ba-dum-tsss!  A Beautyrest stinky pun?  No, no, no!  That’s a Simmons product.  They’re Serta the same!  No, this is Sealy.  Why do the three biggest/best known mattress companies start with the letter S?  Even one of the relative newcomers, Saatva, starts with S.  Probably because the word sleep begins with S?  You sleep on a mattress, right?  Sleep on that, and get back to me.  LOL!

All four clue words are on the world famous ralis95 clue word database!  Today we had “soapy”, and a few days ago we had soupy.  Can SAPPY be far behind?  Hey, guess what, David L. Hoyt.  The word SAPPY has never been used as a Jumble clue word, and it meets all the criteria of a Jumble clue word.  Nothing politically incorrect about it either.  So, have at it, Cuz!  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “scecas” in at least one previous Jumble.  They all came to me immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a trilling thirteen letter jumble.  Decently cryptic too.  But the clue/question was just so leading.

Great historical cartoon from our good buddy, Jeff Knurek.  I always enjoy his historical cartoons.  And very often I learn something new.  Like today.  I had no idea when the Sealy Mattress company got started, and that its name comes from the town where they were first made.  Were they the first mass-produced innerspring mattress?  I don’t know.  Guess it’s time to do some Googling!  Hey, fellow old folk!  Remember Li’l Abner?  He used to have a job as a mattress tester!  Fun-derful Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Good old buddy Jeff is having a tough 2023. He can’t even get the name Daniel Haynes right 😬. But we will forgive JK like we always do every time he messes up 💩. Google is our friend 💻. I’m lost without it! 😎.

    Speaking of lost, the explorers 🧭 over there 👉 shot 19 SOS 🛟 flares y’day, 8 from their Covid-ridden Sherpa 🙋🏻‍♀️ 😷. She’s finally pulling through her bout with Long Covid 🦠 🤒. I’m hoping this weekend we can get back to double digits 🤞.

    I was rooting for the old man suing Gwyneth Paltrow to win his lawsuit after she skied ⛷️ directly into him and almost killed him! ☠️. What a bitch she is! That poor 👴 old man. 😞 I never liked Gwyneth… probably because of her name. Maybe it was her ugly puss 🐱. Looks like he will have to travel the world zip-lining and white water rafting 🛶 💦 without that extra $300k. 🤥. Oh well.

    Stay safe out there! 🎿

    A missing letter can be forgiven, Smitty. It even could’ve happened down the line somewhere.

    Hoping for a full recovery at that other site.

    A lot of things kind of bother me with Ms. Paltrow, the least being her looks though. I wanted to believe the old guy, but didn’t he come down from originally seeking $3 million? That’s usually a red flag. Weren’t there any impartial witnesses to the accident? And, isn’t 7 years quite a long time for a suit like this to come to trial? Glad it’s over though. These celebrity fluff trials are a waste of airtime and bandwidth.
