Answer:  FIRM HANDSHAKES

(Nice, big and challenging answer!  The answer letter layout made it fairly difficult to figure out.  “Mayhem” is a great clue word, but none of the clue words were new today.  The jumblings of “garlic” and “ninety” were new though.  Great cartoon.  Be well, do good.)   —   YUR

Answer:  UN-STABLE

(Where’s the Horse Whisperer when you need him?  Decent pun.  No new clue words, but some good jumbling.  It’s always a little tough coming up with “neuron”.  Marvelous job on the answer letter layout.  I’ll take this cartoon as an omen that the Denver Broncos will defeat the New England Patriots tomorrow night!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BIG SPENDER

(This is HUUU-GE!  People are going to want to do this Jumble OVER and OVER and OVER AGAIN!!!  No new clue words, but some great jumblings.  I liked “reduce” and “giant”.  Pretty good answer letter layout too.  And, how do you not like a cartoon with King Kong in a Donald Trump wig?!!  Beautiful!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Hey.  I was just out there a few weeks ago.  Believe me, if there’s one place you don’t want to be driving on Halloween night, it’s Hollywood.  Specifically, Hollywood Boulevard, but also the 101, and pretty much every street in the vicinity.  What a nightmare!  No new clue words, but some interesting jumbling.  I liked both “covet” and “sesame”.  Great job on the answer letter layout too.  Fun cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TIP-TOP SHAPE

(I like the pun!  And, with the great answer letter layout, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you had some difficulty in solving this.  I don’t think there were any new clue words today.  I didn’t find any of the clue words particularly difficult, but that could just be me.  I really liked Jeff’s drawing/cartoon.  I guess that’s about it for this one, guys.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SPARE TIME

(Gotta love today’s cartoon.  The look on poor Tom’s face is priceless.  A combination of surprise and sorrow.  If he has to clean out the garage and wash the car, I think she should be the one to take the cat to the vet.  Next time, I think he should put his bowling ball and bowling shirt in the car the night before.  You can’t be drawing attention to yourself when you’re trying to make your getaway!  Some nice clue word jumbling today.  I liked “parlay” the most.  Fine job on the answer letter layout, too.  And, of course, it’s a groaner of a pun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Hey, Wimpy!  Bills smacked around the Jets pretty good!  Willie Colon needs to take a chill-pill, and realize how fortunate the Jets are to be 5 and 5.  Some experts picked them to be the 32nd team in the league, during the pre-season.  Colon is lucky to have a bleeping job!      YUR

Answer:  HIGHLY RANKED

(Not bad.  No new clue words, today.  I liked the jumbling of “mingle” the best.  “Knight” was just jumbled backwards.  The answer letter layout was really something special.  No giveaways, whatsoever.  Fine cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WITH DRAWING

(Ahh.  The dénouement.  Wrapping up the week of the guest Jumblers . . . all well-known cartoonists.  It was a fun week.  I think everyone had a good time.  It was a nice change of pace.   No new clue words today, but all were jumbled well.  “Walrus” was fun.  I really liked the answer letter layout.  At first I thought the answer was something WRITING.  But, the left over HDWA was useless.  Except that it helped me realize the second word was DRAWING.  Nice drawing, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer: OF THE JUMBLE

(Now there’s a pun we can all relate to!  Good going, Dave Coverly.  The clue words were all jumbled well.  The answer letter layout was done very professionally.  And, great cartoon of a Jumble solving lion.  Nice way to close out the series.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  STRAIGHT HOME

(And, there we go.  Jeff’s buddy Jeff got the Friday slot!  All legitimate clue words, nicely jumbled.  I’m fairly certain that none were new.  Top-notch job on the answer letter layout, too.  Our friend Billy usually likes to meander and detour quite a bit.  Ahh, innocence!  There is so much to pique the curiosity of little children, and they want to see it all.  It’s all fresh and new to them, and they’re filled with awe and appreciation.  That’s the little kid part of us that we all should strive to hold on to.  That’s the part that makes life worth living.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
