Clue/Question:  When James Watt talked about his steam engine, some people thought he was . . .

Answer:  FULL OF HOT AIR

(Nice long answer.  Not sure how many of you guys found it difficult, though.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  I love that!  The answer just came too quickly to me.  Maybe I just relate too much to being full of hot air.  I’m sure many of you have no problem agreeing with that.  The clue word jumbling was top notch!  I had a little trouble coming up with “radial”, even though we’ve seen it before.  I didn’t have to write out combos, or anything, but it was  challenging.  Surprisingly, to me at least, “afford” is new to the ralis95 clue word database.  Very illustrative cartoon!  I hope some of you elementary teachers out there can see fit to using this in your History – and English – lessons.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS. The only bummer about today’s Jumble is that, during some research, I came across a picture of James G. Watt, who was – very unfortunately –  Secretary of the Interior, for a couple of years under Ronald Reagan.  That tool is somebody I’d sooner like to forget.      YUR
