Still deciding on what to make for Thanksgiving? 13 recipes you'll swear by  from here on out

Answer:  KNEW FULL WELL

(Indeed!  No stinky puns on Thanksgiving day.  Everything smells like turkey, and mashed potatoes, and gravy, and green bean casserole, and candied sweet potatoes, and stuffed mushrooms, and jellied cranberry sauce, and stuffing . . . and stuffing . . . and stuffing!  Guess what part of the meal I like most!

All of today’s clue words were traditional designations.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “lewbol”  before.  And, probably like before, it was the only one to give me trouble.  I started to write BOWEL but ended up with an extra L.  And, of course, those letters can also spell BELOW and ELBOW.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  From the cartoon, and its dialog, I knew that FULL was in it.  But, the phrase came to me fairly quickly.

Great cartoon of a relatively small family.  Maybe Jeff’s brother’s family?  Definitely someone that Jeff knows.  Whenever the characters don’t look generic you know that Jeff has someone in mind.  Whoever it is, I like his black lab!  Be well and do good, friends.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!)   —   YUR

Answer:  YES, I YAM

(Nothing stinky about a Thanksgiving Day pun!  Today is a day for the pungent savory aromas of the sumptuous banquet of giving thanks.  The thanks for family and friends, and simply for being alive.  And hopefully, for remembering all those less fortunate than you.  It’s a good time to reach out to those who may be alone, and let them know they matter.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Two of today’s jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “chayt” and “caypfi” sometime before.  They all came quickly for me.  The answer letter layout was a modest seven letter jumble which got the job done.

A fine cross-generational family feast scene cartoon!  The young son has typically loaded up on rolls and a little meat.  Definitely a little picky, if he doesn’t like orange food.  I wonder if he likes pumpkin pie?  My favorite.  I bet he’d pass on the sweet potato pie!  Too orange, and a little too sweet for my taste too.  Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Jumble Spoiler followers!  Be well, be thankful, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  A special thanks to David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek, for continuing the great Jumble tradition.  They’re a great team that give us great puzzle pleasure.     YUR
