LIDUF = FLUID, CNIPH = PINCH, XITOCE = EXOTIC, AMOEBN = BEMOAN — Giving us: FUIPHXIM
Clue/Question: The repairman was single and his customers wanted to – – -
Answer: FIX HIM UP
(Give him my number! Not for a date, or anything. I could just use a good handyman. There are so many things that need repairing at my house. And, I no longer have the energy, drive and confidence to do them myself. I used to get into doing my own repairs, but no longer. I got issues, folks. But, enough about me.
There are no new clue words today. ralis95 can rest easy, for a change. All of the jumbles seem new though. I like the jumbling of “bemoan” the best. The answer letter layout was swell. I don’t think that many struggled getting the answer though. A great, homey kind of cartoon. Those Jumble mugs must be very popular. I’m seeing them everywhere. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

TAREF = AFTER, FARDT = DRAFT, MOLPAB = APLOMB, GOOSET = STOOGE — Giving us: FEDFALOSE
Clue/Question: He wanted to fish from the pier, but the marine mammals had it – – -
Answer: SEALED OFF
(A real stinker of a pun! Smells like fish breath! I thought the jumbling of “after” was pretty slick. All of the jumbling was new to me. And, Mr. Hoyt has given us yet another new clue word, in “aplomb”. Ironically, I got that word right away. Somebody alert ralis95. His clue word database needs updating . . . again. The answer letter layout was another masterpiece. If it wasn’t for Jeff’s great cartoon I don’t think this would have been an easy solve, for anyone. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: He thought he knew how many vampires were there, but he forgot to – – -
Answer: COUNT DRACULA
(Gotta love it! No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles seem new. I liked the jumble of “uproot” and “cancel”. Excellent answer letter layout! No hint whatsoever. Fun cartoon too. My newspaper screwed us on the comics section today, so I had to get the puzzles off of Arkansas Online! They rock! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

YORAF = FORAY, CUSKN = SNUCK, CLITHB = BLIGHT, GONITU = OUTING — Giving us: FOSNIGTOIN
Clue/Question: He was told his billboard would be up in time for his grand opening, but there was – – -
Answer: NO SIGN OF IT
(A nice stinky pun! And, WordPress has a problem with the word “snuck”. I don’t know what their problem is! We have another new clue word again today, in “blight”. Hoyt is really trying to keep ralis95 on his toes! Three of the jumbles are new, with only YORAF having been used before. The first thing I thought of when I saw CUSKN was SKUNK, but I caught myself before writing it down wrong. The answer letter layout was actually very good today. And, another fine Jeff Knurek cartoon. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

EVAIL = ALIVE, HANOC = NACHO, TETNEX = EXTENT, GONIRI = ORIGIN — Giving us: AIVNHEEN
Clue/Question: When St. Peter took a day off from his job at the Pearly Gates, he was – – –
Answer: IN HEAVEN
(Lemme tell ya, folks. Standing on your feet all day, every day . . . for essentially eternity, is no easy task. I do hope that ol’ Pete has some kind of arch support in those sandals of his. Because, I’ve had plantar fasciitis before, and believe me, it is pain-full! But then again, he’s standing a friggin’ cloud all day. So, how hard can it be??? To the Jumble issues. There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me. The answer letter layout could have been better, if Hoyt had swapped ORIGIN for EXTENT. I think AIVNHNEE might have made the answer just a little bit harder to get. But, that’s just me. The cartoon is very humorous. I can just hear Jeff reciting a list of the good things he’s done in his life, trying to get in. From that temp-angel’s expression, I don’t think she’s a big fan of Wilco, bro! I like the stars and such in the background, and how heaven is floating over the planet earth. Very stylistic. A bit Euro-centric, with it being the northern hemisphere and all, but what do you want from a white kid from Indiana??? LOL! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: The eagle planned to escape from his cage at the zoo because he wanted to be – – -
Answer: FREE AS A BIRD
(Not the greatest pun. But, lots of fun! We have another brand new clue word, in “bevel”. The ralis95 clue word database continues to grow! Three new jumbles, with only the one for “issue” being recognized by my WordPress *database*. The answer letter layout was great, but the answer was kind of a given. Cartoon was great. Gotta love jailbirds! Be well and be good, friends.) — YUR

(Hey! Better late than never! Huh, folks? They gave us another new clue word on this day, in “dimwit”. Somebody call ralis95! And, it looks like all of the jumbles are new too. Decent answer letter layout. Finally caught up! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
