Answer:  READ UP ON IT

(Very good!  I had to think a bit on this answer.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were new.  We’ve seen the one for “onward” before.  The answer letter layout was actually pretty challenging.  A great jumble in its own right.  And, a very scenic cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DIVE RIGHT IN

(Aaaw.  How sweet!  Syd as a little kid.  And, Mom and Dad are looking sprier too.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were.  We’ve seen the one for “viable” before.  The answer letter layout was alright, but not great.  The cartoon was definitely great though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(A really great, stinky pun!  It looks like we have another new clue word today, in “clammy”.  Alert ralis95!  His clue word database needs further updating.  And, it looks like all the jumbles are new today.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away, which made getting the answer very satisfying.  The cartoon was a hoot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  INDIFFERENT

(Very good!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles were new.  Only the one for “issue” has definitely been used since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  The word “effort” spells out in alphabetical order.  Great job on the answer letter layout.  The cartoon does a great job of getting the message across.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  REZOOMED

(Nice, stinky pun!  Not sure why this one didn’t qualify for quotation marks?!?!  None of the clue words are new, but three of the jumbles are.  We’ve definitely seen the one for “oppose” before.  Dandy answer letter layout.  Cool cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  RIDERS CRAMP

(I can hear the moans all the way up in Rochester!  It is a stinker of a pun!  There were no new clue words today, but two of the jumbles were new.  The ones for “sorrow”  and “poetry” seem to be new.  I thought the answer letter layout was exemplary.  A truly lovely jumble.  The cartoon was very entertaining today.  Any time you put cowboys and critters together you are going to make me smile.  That’s about it, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WEB ADDRESS

(I’m not feelin’ it, people!  I mean, I get it, but I just don’t dig it.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I can only confirm that we’ve seen the one for “decay” before.  The answer letter layout was pretty cool though.  Nice jumble.  And, the cartoon neatly displays the web address at the top of the screen.  That’s about it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
