Visual Description:  Showroom showoff.

VOSHE  =  SHOVE,  KUHNC  =  CHUNK,  LEYCER  =  CELERY,  XNBIOG  =  BOXING   —   Giving us:  HECUCYBOI

Clue/Question:  No one told her what to purchase.  She did her own research and was there – – –

Answer:  BUY CHOICE

(Nice Jumble-mobile!  Very sporty and luxurious looking.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  They have used “voshe” before.  It took a couple of seconds for me to see “boxing”, which is strange considering my affinity for the sport.  The answer letter layout was a well-thought out jumble as well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

OYMAF  =  FOAMY,  PENTI  =  INEPT,  TBREET  =  BETTER,  DTAUSJ  =  ADJUST   —   Giving us:  FAMINEETTEDST

Answer:  ADMITTENTS FEE

(Sorry about the delay.  Strange day, indeed.  This Jumble qualifies as a real groaner of a pun.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  They’ve used “penti” before.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble!  It looks like a few of you struggled some to get the answer, because of it.  I like all the pup-tents in the cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for chemtrails

Visual Description:  Contrails . . . or chemtrails?

SLOFS  =  FLOSS,  GAMIE  =  IMAGE,  LMINEB  =  NIMBLE,  RVOFRE  =  FERVOR   —   Giving us:  LSIANIER

Clue/Question:  With planes landing one after another the sky was filled with – – – 

Image result for chemtrails

Answer:  AIR LINES

(Not a bad pun.  But, if some of them are chemtrails they could be – dun dun duuuun – government planes!  The idea sounds nutty to most people, but even many famous people are convinced of them.  I know people who are completely convinced that every line in the sky is the result of the government doing stuff to us, and/or manipulating the weather.  I don’t completely discount these assertions, but like Freud is said to have said:  Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!  

There were no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “slofs” and “gamie” before.  “Floss” is one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was a nice jumble.  And, the cartoon definitely got the point across.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

LIRGL  =  GRILL,  SMIKP  =  SKIMP,  CADEFA  =  FACADE,  CNOMUL  =  COLUMN   —   Giving us:  GRILSIPFAECLN

Answer:  FALLING PRICES

(Another case of an excellent answer letter layout, combined with my being a little off my game.  It took me a while to see this one, again.  And, this time my daughter and her boyfriend were already at work.  At first I was certain that the first word was SPECIAL.  But, I couldn’t do a thing with GRILFN.  I think that helped me to see the ING in FALLING, and I finally got the pun.  None of the clue words are new today, but three of the jumbles are new.  We’ve seen “lirgl” before.  I guess there is the free falling aspect of skydiving, but I always think about it as jumping out of an airplane.  I did it once.  It was a blast!  First timers generally do it as a tandem jump.  You need to have someone with experience on your back, so you don’t forget to do something important.  Like pull the ripcord.  Cute cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Remnant rummagers.

CATHL  =  LATCH,  CAWTH  =  WATCH,  LELNOY  =  LONELY,  AYEWEL  =  LEEWAY   —   Giving us:  LAWATLOLLW

Clue/Question:  When the carpet store had a huge sale, customers were – – –

Answer:  WALLTOWALL

(No new clue.  Only “ayewel” presented a challenge.  They’ve used “cawth” before.  The answer letter layout did what it could to disguise the four different letters.  The cartoon got the point across very nicely.  Carpeting is necessary, but a little boring.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  How the She-Wolf became a Sea-Wolf.

GERME  =  MERGE,  GOMIZ  =  GIZMO,  WEYLEK  =  WEEKLY,  TYNPAR  =  PANTRY   —   Giving us:  MREIMOWEEPNR

Clue/Question:  When ancient Italians built human-powered warships, they created a – – –

Image result for roman warships

Answer:  ROWMEN EMPIRE

(I sometimes confuse my Roman mythology with the Greek.  I was looking to see if the she-wolf had a name, so I Googled Castor and Pollux.  Oops!  They were a couple of Greek mythology dudes, and not the Romulus and Remus, who – allegedly – were the founders of Rome, that I should have been thinking of.  But as usual, I eventually found what I was looking for.  I can’t seem to find a name for the she-wolf, who was said to have suckled the abandoned twin boys.  I kind of doubt it was Fifi, or even Lady, but you’d think the Romans would of come up with some name for a creature of such importance.  Maybe, for the sake of the idea of the twins ferocity, they decided to keep it at “she-wolf”.  Naming her may have humanized her some, and that probably didn’t jibe with their story.   The guys probably just grunted out a form of Mom anyway.

There are no new clue words today.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, while the other two, “gomiz” and “tynpar” have definitely been used before.  All four of them jumped off of the page, for me.  The answer letter layout was a wonderful jumble.  It did a very nice job of disguising the answer.  It was the cartoon that had all the necessary clues.  The sails of the ships, showing Romulus and Remus suckling at the teets of the she-wolf, and the preponderance of oars, made it easy to fill in the quotation marks.  I hope you all caught the, fairly subtle, sinking warship on the horizon, in the upper right of the cartoon.  I nearly missed it!  Very clever, Jeff!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for restaurants in Rome

Answer:  FULL AGREEMENT

(I had to do a double take on today’s cartoon.  Normally, I try not to look at the cartoon until after I solve the individual jumbles, but I had to do a Wait a minute!  Very clever, giving us a before and after Jumble!  None of the clue words were new today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  The guys have used “refter” before.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful, well thought out jumble.  Lots of fun, with this great little pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
