(Cute.  No new clue words, and three new jumbles.  We’ve seen “gilco”.  Nice answer letter layout.  Homey cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DREW A CROWD

(Not for nothin’ – as we like to say in Brooklyn – but this seems like either a rerun, or a variation of a rerun.  The answer, that is, at least.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We have definitely seen “rawey” before.  The answer letter layout was a decent jumble.  It’s hard to hide the answer with those Ws and Ds.  Very cool cartoon.  I’m sure Jeff can supply us with the names of all the characters.  No doubt either some of Jeff’s pals and/or favorites.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GOOD RIDDENTS

(Great stinky pun!  Best one in a while, I’d say.  No new clue words, today.  But, two of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen both “tidot” and “ating” before.  Although, it did take me skipping, and coming back, to get “giant”.  I just wasn’t seeing it.  Then, the excellent answer letter layout had me stumped for a couple of minutes.  The quotation marks definitely helped!  Fine cartoon.  I just can’t make out much of the detail.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Dealing productively with a modern problem.

EMACO  =  CAMEO,  NDORF  =  FROND,  YEGRES  =  GEYSER,  TCWISH  =  SWITCH   —   Giving us:  AEOFRNGEYESWT

Clue/Question:  For the Steuben County Landfill, converting trash into electricity wasn’t a – – –

Answer:  WASTE OF ENERGY

(Ah!  I see besides a Steuben County in Southwestern New York, which I am fairly familiar with, there is also one in Indiana.  They both have a landfill, and they both have a gas to energy program.  Hopefully, most landfills do.  It’s a great idea.  

There were no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  They have used both “emaco” and “yegres” in the past.  I almost went “greesy” again, before remembering that it would be “greasy”.  The answer letter layout made for a beautiful jumble.  Great cartoon, showing the garbage trucks, the bulldozer, the gulls, gas collection pipes, the kids and the foreman.  It looks like the little girl brought her own bag of garbage!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HEATING UP

(Well, it IS late May.  No new clue words, but a couple of new jumbles.  They’ve used “fonte” and “chupic” before.  Great answer letter layout.  Swell cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for trumpet players

Answer:  TOOT HIS OWN HORN

(Nice way to ease us into the week.  No new clue words.  Three new jumbles though.  We’ve seen “nihkt” before.  Fun answer letter layout.  Not familiar with the band.  Maybe Jeff can clue us in.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Indiana wants me.  (Jeff’s feeling nostalgic.)

SUFFS  =  FUSSY,  EYEND  =  NEEDY,  DIRZWA  =  WIZARD,  EBELET  =  BEETLE   —   Giving us:  SSYNEARDBTE

Clue/Question:  The people on the platform waving to the departing train were – – –

Image result for nickel plate road steam locomotives

Answer:  BYESTANDERS

(Maybe, a little before Jeff’s time?  A very nice period pun.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  They’ve used “suyfs” before.  The answer letter layout was a spectacular jumble.  It gave nothing away.  The cartoon is great early 20th Century rail history.  Jeff’s hometown?  Kathy’s hometown?  Maybe Jeff will tell.  Yesterday’s Jumble drew a lot of attention.  I also pulled in 5 or 6 new followers,  so maybe they viewed a lot of the older spoilers.  That happens sometimes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
