Clue/Question:  When the chiropractor returned from vacation, it was – – –

Image result for chiropractor

Answer:  BACK TO BUSINESS

(Mainly “back”.  But, it looks more like a shoulder and arm situation, this time.  I can remember when chiropractors were considered “quacks”.  A lot of people in the established/traditional/western medical field are still a little leery of them.  Well meaning friends have tried to refer me to them over the years, but my mom instilled the “quack” factor in my brain, from a very early age, and it has stuck.  I’d sooner see an acupuncturist, but I haven’t done that yet either. 

We have another new clue word today, in “strict”.  Doesn’t it seem that it’s always a very common word that is a “new” word?  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database yet again!  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “soybs” having definitely been used in the past.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fourteen letter jumble.  I didn’t see the answer immediately, but it didn’t take very long to get it.

Another fine cartoon.  The guy/patient looks to be in a bit of pain.  Sometimes the cure hurts more than the condition.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When the young eagle learned to fly, it was a – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (5-letters) (3-letters) “(4-letters)” (4-letters)

Answer:  SIGHT FOR SOAR EYES

(A great, momentous stinky pun!  Maybe, this will be the first in a series of Jumbles to commemorate the 50th anniversary of man landing on the moon?  Sort of a precursor to:  “The eagle has landed.”  It’s a big “maybe”, but knowing how the guys like acknowledging historic events, I wouldn’t put it past them.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  That’s why ralis95‘s name is NOT in the title line today!  He can enjoy a nice relaxing Sunday, without having to update his world famous database.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  A couple of them gave me pause.  It was a brief pause for “hungeo”, but “baliuf” gave me fits.  And, I nearly had to back into it, but I finally saw it after playing around with FABULI.  A little ironic, considering I once broke my left “fibula”.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive sixteen letter jumble.  If the entire setup didn’t clue you into the final answer, this massive jumble would have been tough to crack.

Fine cartoon of eagles in their aerie, looking up at their son’s first flight.  The dad looks as proud as a peacock!  And, mom’s “Oh, my” look is priceless.  I like how Jeff made her feminine, with the eyelash treatment, and tufts of feathers to look like more hair.  A fine Sunday Jumble.  And, maybe the start of something bigger???  We’ll see.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The submarine in the sea between Australia and New Zealand was – – –

Related image

Answer:  DOWN UNDER

(Ooh!  That is definitely a stinker of a pun.  I’m sure the ventilation systems in the newer subs are pretty good, but in all the old movies – usually WWII sagas – everybody looks hot and sweaty, and grimy/funky.  Ugh!  Hey!  When these guys surface in the Arctic Circle are they Up Over?  Maybe, that’s how the Inuit refer to their territories?  Okay, all you Eskimos out there.  Am I close???  LOL!  You folks may not appreciate my sense of humor, but I’m cracking myself up!

Even before checking, I knew that today’s clue words were already members of the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “guave” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was an operational nine letter jumble.  It was hard to hide what I thought was a pretty obvious answer, mostly based on the clue/question.

Fine submarine cartoon.  Jeff omitted the typical periscope shot, so I thought I’d throw one in.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question: It was his turn at the pool table now that the previous player had – – –

Image result for pool sharks

Answer:  CUED HIM IN

(Gotta love this stinky pun!  It’s a classic stinker for, a hot and sweaty Friday!  Nice little play on:  CLUE HIM IN.  But, you all – not y’all – figured that out by now, all on yer own!  I’m really getting tired of hearing people trying to sound country, and/or southern.  Not everybody from the South says it all the time, and it just sounds so forced from some of these clowns.  ENOUGH . . . y’all!

Four long time members of the ralis95 clue word database today.  But, all four of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Both “drimea” and “cucear” made me think.  But, they both just took a couple looks.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  It did a fine job of hiding the final answer.  Nice work, David L. Hoyt!

Great pool room scene cartoon.  Have you ever noticed how Jeff almost always makes himself look smooth and hip, but he usually makes David look more on the nerdy side?!  What up wit dat, bro???  If you don’t watch yourself David is going to lay a major head-butt on yer noggin!  That’ll be lights out for you!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The major league soccer scout’s effect on the team was – – –

Related image

Answer:  PROFOUND

(Ahh!  A return to the stinky pun!  You could argue that yesterday’s answer wasn’t really a pun.  Or, at least it was a pretty tame pun.  But, today’s is a Grade-A stinker of a pun.  A true groaner!  So, of course I like it.

All of today’s clue words are already members of the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately though.  The answer letter layout was a well-crafted, eight letter jumble.  It disguised the final answer nicely.

Fun soccer/football cartoon.  I guess that’s the owner talking to the scout.  If Jeff wanted to be more trendy and leading-edge he should have made the players young women, instead of young men.  By the way, big Congrats to the U.S. Women’s National Team for winning the 2019 World Cup!  I really loved the Lavelle goal!  It was one of the best games I’ve ever seen played, men or women!  The Dutch women really made them work for the win!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When Congress created the U.S. Mint in 1792, they got their  – – –

Image result for David Rittenhouse

Answer:  MONEYS WORTH

(I would not call this a stinky pun.  It’s a bright and shiny, found penny pun!  And, a nice little history lesson.  Our very first Mint opened in Philadelphia, our capitol at the time.

Hoyt is giving us all a break today, with all established clue words.  Nothing for ralis95 to do today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “ebowlb” having definitely been used sometime before.  The answer letter layout was a fine eleven letter jumble.  There was nothing obvious about it.  I think yesterday’s Jumble would’ve been more clear to me if the clue/question had a comma after the word “allowed”.  It looks like it didn’t trip up many of you guys though!

Great historic, period piece cartoon today.  I’m guessing the guy on the right is David Rittenhouse, the first director of the first U.S. Mint.  He was an astronomer by profession, and apparently friends with Thomas Jefferson.  It always pays to know the right people!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NEIGHBORS

(Great stinky pun!  And, only two days removed from manure!  Horse people, especially, don’t let their noses get out of joint by the smell of manure.  Like napalm in the morning, to them it . . . smells like . . . victory!  LOL!

No new clue words today!  Everyone can rest easy.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “geehd” definitely having been used before.  All the clue words came to me right away.  The answer letter layout was another thing!  It’s a fine nine letter jumble.  But, the phrasing of the clue/question was a little awkward, for me.   And, it didn’t exactly lead me down the bridle path.  I thought either the first half of the answer was REINS, or the second REIN.  But GBHOS and GBHO made no sense at all.  I also thought something RING for both sides of the answer.  At this point, I can’t even tell you exactly how I finally saw NEIGH, but I did.  And, that’s all that matters.

Cute horsie cartoon.  I guess the friendly folks in the background were what finally clued me in to the answer.  For me, this was a challenging Jumble.  Did any of you guys wrangle at all with this one, or was it just me?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
