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

Clue/Question:  The tennis balls at the courts were – – –

Answer:  SELFSERVE

(Not bad, for a Monday.  Very surprisingly, we have a new clue word today, in “flock”.  Who would’ve thought that such a common word could have avoided the Jumble all this time?  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database once again!  I hope he picked up on yesterday’s new word as well.  The jumble “senlos” gave me pause, but I figured it out, and it has actually been used before.  I was a bit impatient, and backed in to “gerbil”.  No pun intended.  The answer letter layout was swell, but even without the ERL I was able to figure out the answer.  The great cartoon really made getting the answer pretty easy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

CRAFS  =  SCARF,  TINYU  =  UNITY,  CEOIXT  =  EXOTIC,  VERIEV  =  REVIVE   —   Giving us:  SARUNXOTEIE

Clue/Question:  The railroad sold off their older surplus boxcars because they were – – –

Answer:  EXTRAINEOUS

(Excellent pun, and a great Jumble!  None of today’s clue words are new, but three of the jumbles are.  We’ve seen “tinyu” before.  Hoyt’s answer letter layout is a masterpiece of a jumble.  Because of the UN, standing out near the middle, I thought that the first two letters of the answer was going to be UN.  Fortunately, I didn’t spend any time on that misguided/misdirected notion.  Then I was seeing the word EXTRA, and thought it was the five letter, center portion, of the answer.  I wasn’t even seeing the word TRAIN at that point.  But as I under-hashed the EXTRA letters, I was left with SUNOIE, and I knew I couldn’t do anything with that.  So, I looked at the cartoon and clue/question for the word they were trying hard NOT to use, and I realized it was TRAIN, and then I saw the pun.  Funny how EXTRA does come up in the answer anyway!  Just broken up a little.  I’m working with the reduced-sized cartoon, but I can see that Jeff did a great job with it.  Especially the graffiti DAVE and JEFF on the boxcars in the background.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Can’t wait to give thanks!

BBRUL  =  BLURB,  GOFYG  =  FOGGY,  EBELEF  =  FEEBLE,  SOBBAR  =  ABSORB   —   Giving us:  BLBOGGEELBOB

Clue/Question:  When the delectable turkey was put on the table, everyone was anxious to – – – 

Image result for thanksgiving

Answer:  GOBBLE GOBBLE

(Nice, holiday appropriate pun!  I didn’t need a pen to do this one.  All of the clue words are old favorites, and one of the jumbles, “sobbar”, has been used before.  The answer letter layout was swell, but with four repeating letters, it really didn’t present much of a challenge.  But, today isn’t about mental challenges.  It’s about giving thanks.  Hopefully, you all – like me – can find many things to be thankful for.  Life is good.  Happy Thanksgiving, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

WRONC  =  CROWN,  FARET  =  AFTER,  NERYTD  =  TRENDY,  GAROFE  =  FORAGE   —   Giving us:  CRARTEA

Clue/Question:  The rodent who lived in the big city was growing tired of the – – –

Image result for city rats

Answer:  RAT RACE

(I think this is a well worn Jumble theme.  Almost a Junior Jumble in its ease.  All of the clue words are old favorites, even though it’s been a while since we’ve seen “forage”.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “faret” having been used previously.  That jumble gave me pause for a couple of seconds.  It’s a good one.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, but like I said, the answer wasn’t very tough.  The cartoon, however, is classic!  Really beautifully drawn, with lots of detail.  I especially like the fat rat by the garbage can, with the chicken bone in his hand.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

TNOHM  =  MONTH,  HELIW  =  WHILE,  SGNPIR  =  SPRING,  BOGONL  =  OBLONG   —   Giving us:  ONTWIESPRIBON

Clue/Question:  When she brought the girls delicious cake-like cookies, she earned – – –

Image result for brownies

Answer:  BROWNIE POINTS

(Sweet pun!  I love brownies, especially if they’re not too cakey.  They’re better when they’re dense and moist.  And, I don’t like frosted brownies.  Well, maybe it depends on the frosting.  A little drizzled chocolate, or powdered sugar is fine too.  But, I do like when they have chocolate chips in them.  Mmm!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles are new today.  They’ve definitely used “heliw” before.  This jumble always makes me think of Julia Child for some reason.  All the jumbles came to me immediately today.  The answer letter layout was great, but the answer was very obvious to me.  Probably because of the great cartoon, and the clue/question.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

TAHEW  =  WHEAT,  IGNIC  =  ICING,  MISWOD  =  WISDOM,  LETHME  =  HELMET   —   Giving us:  HATIIWDELT

Clue/Question:  After the dog ripped up the deck of cards, the poker players couldn’t – – –

Image result for playing poker

Answer:  DEAL WITH IT

(Not bad!  But of course, I’m kinda immune to stinky puns.  None of the clue words were new, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “tahew” some time in the past.  The answer letter layout did not give anything away.  It was actually a very good jumble.  The cartoon is fun.  I guess Gizmo isn’t a fan of cigar smoke.  Either that, or he was tired of always being left out of the game.  It’s funny how guys who normally don’t smoke – anything – will smoke cigars when it comes to playing poker.  It’s like it’s not officially a guys’ night out unless there’s cigar smoking.  Who says men aren’t complicated?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
