Answer:  FREE RAIN

(What’s all this guff about “free rain”???  This isn’t something new, is it?  In my day the air was always free, and the rain was always free.  Also the sun and the clouds.  Is someone planning on charging us for rain in the future?  Has Jeff Bezos bought the sky, or something?  Is he turning into Simon Bar Sinister?  I know all those computer folk like to talk about the cloud all the time, but this is ridiculous!  What’s next?  Will he be charging us for sunshine?  Will poorer folk be forced to breathe dirty air, while rich folk pay for clean air?  Someone has to stop him!  We must tell him we won’t stand . . .  Excuse me, Miss Litella.  This is a pun on free REIN.  It’s the Jumble.  They don’t really mean free RAIN.  Oh!  That’s different.  Never mind!

We have seen all of today’s clue words before.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, however we have definitely seen “birno” in earlier Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  I thought it was sufficiently cryptic.  I didn’t really see the pun until I checked off the RAIN, and was left with ERFE.

Nice cartoon of a television weather person.  She doesn’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence with her forecast.  Kinda ditzy actually.  Maybe she’s new.  But then again, Mother Nature is gonna do what she’s gonna do!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SMELLING FOWL

(If this Jumble doesn’t qualify as a stinky pun, then nothing will.  I just think that the clue/question was kind of stinky too.  “Wandered”???  “In search of birds”???  It’s a hunting dog!  Probably some kind of a retriever, or a setter.  That’s what they’re bred for.  They don’t wander, they react.  And, that reaction is to retrieve the quarry.  End of story.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “rtlif” before.  I thought both “rinaml” and “bgtelo” were fairly challenging jumbles.  The answer letter layout a twisty twelve letter jumble.  By itself, it gave nothing away.  It was the combination of the clean dog’s dialog, and the wavy stink lines coming from subject dog, that gave me the answer.  Funny though, I got distracted from writing SMELLING, and started checking off letters for SWIMMING, until I realized there was only one M.  But, I corrected myself.  The remaining OLFW gave me FOWL, and I got the pun.

Cute duck hunting cartoon.  It looks like Elmer bagged a mallard!  Not sure what the purpose of the clean dog is?  He clearly isn’t a hunting dog, or he wouldn’t ask such a silly question.  Our hero dog’s reply should be:  “Ours is not to reason why, ours is but to do or die!”  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
