(A good, olde fashioned, stinky pun!  Probably because they didn’t have a sewage system in those days!  We have no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I found none to be difficult though.  The answer letter layout was sufficiently cryptic.  Another good jumble.  A great period cartoon.  I half expected to see Robin Hood scaling the castle wall.  Be well and do good, citizens.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MARK MY WORDS

(Okay, so the highlighter actually came much later.  The first Magic Markers!  Nice little bonus clue, there in the narrative, guys.  Surprisingly, “spooky” is coming up as a new word!  Seems like we’ve seen it before, but maybe it came out on a Sunday, before ralis95 was looking for them.  Maybe our newer friend, Bob, can confirm?  All of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  Great job with the answer letter layout!  Another great cryptic jumble.  And, I always enjoy the period cartoons.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PAIRADOCS

(I get the feeling Jeff’s been hanging out with Stephan Pastis lately!  It’s a great pun though.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up new for me.  I thought the answer letter layout was another excellent jumble.  Great cartoon.  I haven’t seen the Back To The Future movies in quite some time, but they were always a favorite.  Christopher Lloyd was great as Doc.  Ya know, my paper doesn’t carry Pearls Before Swine, but I did see it earlier this week.  Stephan scored a triple with his.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Very apropos pun!  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I had a little trouble getting “person”!  But, at least I didn’t have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was very good.  And the cartoon does a great job of setting things up.  Be well and do good, friends!  Happy Earth Day!)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 04/20/15

Visual Description:  Sydney’s Sweet Sixteen!

HEWLE  =  WHEEL,  KREYP  =  PERKY,  THOOSE  =  SOOTHE,  TAANSO  =  SONATA   —   Giving us:  WEPRSTESNA

Clue/Question:  They would let her open her birthday gifts after everyone – – –

Answer:  WAS PRESENT

(Very nice.  That’s a good dad, who – very publicly – celebrates in his children’s milestones and accomplishments!  We had no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new for me.  Only the one for “soothe” could be confirmed as definitely having been used before.  The answer letter layout was sufficiently cryptic, but the cartoon setup made the answer fairly obvious.  I hope Sydney enjoys her big day.  Next step is a learner’s permit!  Who has the more patience – and nerves – to sit in the passenger seat while she learns, mom or dad???  Let the games begin!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The arachnid had her legs examined by a doctor after becomming worried about her – – –

Answer:  SPIDER VEINS

(Very cute.  The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle has the reduced cartoons, so I’m not getting much detail, but it looks cute.  We have a new clue word today, in “prism”.  The only jumble that I can see we already have is the one for “stood”.  Great answer letter layout.  But the answer should have been pretty obvious to all of you.  That’s it, guys.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The Cyclops couldn’t help but notice the new arrival after she – – –

Answer:  CAUGHT HIS EYE

(Ooh!  Good stinky pun.  We even have a new clue word, in “shrug”, and it looks like all the jumbles are new today.  I thought “rancid” was a pretty tough solve.  The answer letter layout was outstanding!  And, the cartoon was tons of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
