Visual Description:  The fixer-upper.

VEELL  =  LEVEL,  BEATA  =  ABATE,  NOPYEL  =  OPENLY,  DAZRIW  =  WIZARD   —   Giving us:  LEBEOLWAD

Clue/Question:  They wanted an affordable home, but the one they looked at didn’t – – –

Image result for humble abode

Answer:  ABODE WELL

(Interesting pun!  Not our usual pun, but petty good!  The clue words are all already part of the ralis95 clue words database, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “beata” before.  The answer letter layout was pretty special.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon looked strangely familiar.  Have we seen this realtor before???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

TOORB  =  ROBOT,  SUSIE  =  ISSUE,  SLEMYL  =  SMELLY,  CAASUB  =  ABACU  —   Giving us:  ROTIUSMEACS

Clue/Question:  When his son said he was starting a band, it wasn’t – – –

Answer:  MUSIC TO HIS EARS

(Loved it!  We actually have another new clue word today, in “smelly”.  More work for our buddy, ralis95.  His world famous clue word database continues to grow.  Three of the jumbles were new, with “susie” having been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble.  Great cartoon.  It’s nice to see the full sized ones again!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Long drive home from Mom’s today.  Tomorrow I drive to the funeral in West Virginia, and the next day, after the funeral, I drive to northern PA to pay my respects/say goodbye to one of my favorite in-laws.  Then I get another long drive home.  It’s good that Carol will be with me.  She should get plenty of sleep!  See you in a few days.  Peace.     YUR

Visual Description:  For every buyer there needs to be a . . . 

LEEGA  =  EAGLE,  POMOH  =  OOMPH,  BLINEB  =  NIBBLE,  SPYMIK  =  SKIMPY   —   Giving us:  ELEOHNLSP

Clue/Question:  To close deals, a good real estate salesperson needs a – – – 

Image result for realtors

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

Visual Description:  Railyard auction.

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

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

 

Image result for boxcars

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

Jumble Spoiler – Thanksgiving 2016

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

Visual Description:  Vermin alley.

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
