DOMME = MODEM, RUBOR = BURRO, NYRCAN = CRANNY, FLAMEE = FEMALE — Giving us: DEMRRORNNYALE
Clue/Question: The attendant was well-liked and efficient. They loved his – – –
Answer: ORDERLY MANNER
(Excellent pun! Very often, it seems like the orderlies are the friendliest – and most capable – people in the hospital. Hey, guess what? We seem to have a new clue word today. I would’ve sworn that we’ve had it before, but it wasn’t on the ralis95 clue word database. The “new” word is “burro”. Purists might try to argue that the word is Spanish for small donkey, but the English language is very fluid, and constantly evolving. I hope our good friend sees this one! One of the jumbles, “flamee”, has definitely been used before. The answer letter layout was outstanding! A super terrific jumble, that did a wonderful job of keeping the answer hidden. The cartoon does a great job of showing a hospital discharge. Very satisfying Jumble. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: When they taught their puppies how to dog paddle, things went – – –
(Oooh! My favorite dogs! You know I liked this pun/Jumble. All of today’s clue words worked out to be old favorites. Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “cimmi” having been used before. Fine answer letter layout, from Mr. Hoyt. And, a splendid cartoon from Mr. Knurek. I like the grumpy looking duck in the background. He seems to be upset that the dogs are using his pond. Cute. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: The kids on the carnival’s carousel were – – –
Answer: HORSING AROUND
(Good thing it’s a standard carousel. Sometimes there are tigers, lions, pigs, giraffes, etc. on these merry-go-rounds . . . and then where would the pun be??? Just kidding! No new clue words. One old jumble, in “wherds”. Excellent answer letter layout. Very fun cartoon. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: It was time to close her bakery for the day after the customers had – – –
Answer: “DESSERTED“ IT
(Sweet pun! Again, all of the clue words already exist on the ralis95 clue word database. But, three of the jumbles – once again – came up as new. Only “sudeo” was a re-run. The answer letter layout was a beautiful jumble. Love the tasty cartoon! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: They wanted an affordable home, but the one they looked at didn’t – – –
Answer: “ABODE“ WELL
(Interesting pun! Not our usual pun, but petty good! The clue words are all already part of the ralis95 clue words database, but three of the jumbles came up as new. We’ve seen “beata” before. The answer letter layout was pretty special. I don’t think it gave anything away. The cartoon looked strangely familiar. Have we seen this realtor before??? Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: When his son said he was starting a band, it wasn’t – – –
Answer: MUSIC TO HIS EARS
(Loved it! We actually have another new clue word today, in “smelly”. More work for our buddy, ralis95. His world famous clue word database continues to grow. Three of the jumbles were new, with “susie” having been used before. The answer letter layout was a fine jumble. Great cartoon. It’s nice to see the full sized ones again! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. Long drive home from Mom’s today. Tomorrow I drive to the funeral in West Virginia, and the next day, after the funeral, I drive to northern PA to pay my respects/say goodbye to one of my favorite in-laws. Then I get another long drive home. It’s good that Carol will be with me. She should get plenty of sleep! See you in a few days. Peace. — YUR

LEEGA = EAGLE, POMOH = OOMPH, BLINEB = NIBBLE, SPYMIK = SKIMPY — Giving us: ELEOHNLSP
Clue/Question: To close deals, a good real estate salesperson needs a – – –
Answer: “SELL“ PHONE
(Not bad. A little stinky, but okay. No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles did come up as new. They’ve definitely used “pomoh” before. The jumble for “eagle” actually gave me some trouble. I kept – erroneously – thinking “alege”, but I knew that was wrong. It took a while to see the “eagle”. The answer letter layout was swell, but the quotation marks were a huge clue. Fine cartoon. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. I may miss a few days for a while. Hafta travel for a funeral, and also for a terminally ill relative. You might get tomorrows, if I can manage it. Peace. — YUR
