Visual Description:  A coin class clown?

REUVC  =  CURVE,  TOHOP  =  PHOTO,  FNELEN  =  FENNEL,  EEESDC  =  SECEDE   —   Giving us:  CRPOTNNEEE

Clue/Question:  Pennies make up 1/100 of a dollar.  That’s – – –

 

WHY WAS THE COMPOSITION OF THE PENNY CHANGED AND WHY DO WE ...

Answer:  ONE PERCENT

(Another fine stinky pun!  But, it makes me wonder how much longer our government is going to issue/mint pennies!  Copper is too expensive, and the cost of minting them exceeds the value of the coin.  Even using zinc and food coloring!  Or, whatever.  I think a lot of us probably have a pretty big stash of pennies somewhere in our houses.  The *pure* copper ones are probably worth at least 2¢ each!  The newer ones?  Eh!

No new clue words today.  But, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  Solving them was easy money, for me.  The answer letter layout was a de-cent ten letter jumble.  Nothing counterfeit about it.  Remember laughing – or sneering – at the yokels who would say “cash money”?  Little did we know how prescient they were with their redundancy!  Credit, debit and pre-paid cards.  PayPal, Venmo and Zelle.  Then, there’s Bitcoin, Litecoin, and a whole new slew of cryptocurrencies out there!  Crap that is beyond my ken.  Who knew that the rubes would be proven “correct”?  Well, I guess the increased popularity of Country music and NASCAR should’ve been a big hint.  Hey!  I’m an aging Rocker, who still says “cash is king!”  Pretty soon you’ll be able to see yer dear ol’ uncle at yer local tar pit.

Cartoon?  Teacher, rugrats, money.  I think that says it all.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

South America - Lessons - Tes Teach

Visual Description:  Avoiding the Drake Passage around Cape Horn.

NTIJO  =  JOINT,  SYKAH  =  SHAKY,  TBRITE  =  BITTER,  PURTAB  =  ABRUPT   —   Giving us:  INTSHKITRAT

Clue/Question:  To name the body of water Magellan traveled through, she needed to – – –

CAPE HORN: CAPE HORN: HOW A TRADING MONOPO HOW A TRADING MONOPOLY ...

Answer:  THINK STRAIT

(An excellent stinky pun!  And, it’s both a nice history lesson and a geography lesson.  Most of us are so far removed from school that we probably need a refresher course, as to where it is.  It’s way down near the bottom of Chile and Argentina, and it cuts through more mainland Chile and Tierra del Fuego, which is an archipelago, that is part Chilean and part Argentinian.  The strait provided a somewhat safer way to get from the Atlantic to the Pacific, than taking the Drake Passage.

There were no new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles did come up as new.  No stumpers, for me today.  The answer letter layout was a cryptic eleven letter jumble.  If you had forgotten your history/geography lessons then you might have struggled some to get the final answer.

Fine classroom cartoon.  It looks like it’s likely a high school class, but that’s just my guess.  I like the map.  Jeff even threw in Las Malvinas, better known to English speakers as the Falkland Islands.  Fun Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When she signed her property over to become a park, they thanked her for her – – –

Readers Write: Racial covenants bill, City Hall security, PolyMet ...

Answer:  GOOD DEED

(Cute, stinky pun.  Great way to ease in to the work week.  I’m a lot tired, so I’m just going to keep this short.

No new clue words today.  But, all of today’s jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  The final answer just kind of jumped out at me though.

Nice civic minded cartoon.  Maybe that’s the park we’ve seen in a number of recent Jumbles.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  She hung up her gold medals before the others because she wanted to put – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (5-letters)  (6-letters)  (5-letters)

U.S. Women's Foil Team Earns World No. 1 Ranking For First Time Ever

Answer:  FIRST THINGS FIRST

(Excellent Jumble pun!  But, of course we won’t be seeing any Olympics this year.  Nope!  The COV-19/Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic has put the kibosh on that, for this year.  Hopefully, we will be able to have them in 2021.

Perhaps we’ve seen it on some previous Sunday, but the word “softly” is coming up as a new clue word.  I sent an email to ralis95, so he can update his world famous database.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “slivha” sometime in the past.  They all came to me pretty quickly.  The answer letter layout was a super sixteen letter jumble.  I first tried FINISH for the middle word, but it used two of the three I’s!  I did see FIRST though.  GTTRS was just nonsense.  Then, I thought the middle word might be STRING, which brought me back to FIRST.  But, the remaining letters gave me SHIFT.  FIRST STRING SHIFT didn’t make any sense, in this context.  Finally, I saw THINGS, which gave me the proper final answer.

Fine cartoon of an Olympic athlete.  It’s hard to say what sport is her specialty.  The hair up made me think gymnastics, but she could also be an ice skater, or track athlete.  Or, maybe she’s a fencer!  Not enough info to make an educated guess.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

THINK TWICE BEFORE PLACING GIRLS ON CO-ED TEAMS | Kids and Sports

Answer:  GLOVES ON HAND

(Gotta love this Jumble!  It’s both seasonally appropriate and politically correct.  I don’t think I have to explain the pun aspect of this answer to anyone.  Do I?

There are no new clue words today.  But, surprisingly, only one new jumble, as we’ve definitely seen “viwea”, “nhiynw” and “gmoysg” in the past.  Maybe that’s why I had no trouble with any of them.  The answer letter layout was a beautifully cryptic twelve letter jumble.  The final answer letter slots were my biggest clue . . . right off the bat.

Great youth baseball cartoon.  It sorta has a “Bad News Bears” or “The Sandlot” vibe to it.  A great Jumble for a Saturday . . . in the park.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Posts – William Murray Golf

Answer:  COURSE OF EVENTS

(Now, this one is worthy of the designation “stinky pun”!  The last two Jumbles were decidedly lukewarm, at best.   It’s nice to see the guys end the week on an up note.

There were no new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “srivo” having definitely been used before.  I started writing out NURT, before I realized that I was running out of squares for NURTURE.  You know me, and those cheap-ass UN words!  The answer letter layout was an impressive twelve letter jumble.  I think having the OF being a given helped me get the final answer quickly.

Fun golf cartoon!  Our guys look jazzed.  Their ladies look jazzed.  I was going to go with a Johnny Carson quip that was a response to a famous golfer’s wife, but I don’t know.  It’s a little blue.  I guess if I leave out what she said – the setup – it should be okay.  He – allegedly – said:  That must make his putter flutter.  I’ll leave the setup to your imaginations.  Be well and do well, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When they went hiking on the Alaskan glacier, they – – –

Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska - YouTube

Answer:  HAD AN ICE DAY

(Temps keep increasing, and glaciers keep melting.  Lindblad, Oceania, and Norwegian Cruise lines better book ’em while they can!  In the not too distant future there’s only going to be tropical cruises.  Of course, some of those lesser islands might might just disappear.  I wouldn’t go buying cruise stocks as a long-term holding.

No new clue word today.  Although all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  It’s been a while since we’ve been able to say that,  The answer letter layout was a wonderful eleven letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.

Fine cartoon of a couple trekking near the Alaskan coast.  Maybe even I’ll get up there before the glaciers are gone!  Hey, you never know.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Parts of a Cell Learning Chart | Trend Enterprises | 9781587923012

Answer:  LO0K INTO IT

(Another simple . . . but good!  A bit of a groaner, but not a real stinker.  It’s kind of like teachers on the last week of the school year.  They’re there, but tests are over, and they’re just putting in the mandated number of days.

No new clue words today!  Nope, we’ve seen ’em all before.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new.  But, we’ve definitely seen “toodu” and “ilooer” in the past.  They were all quickies, for me.  The answer letter layout was a nifty ten letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it. 

Great science lab cartoon.  Very convincing microscopes.  It took me a second to see that that’s a poster of a cell, on the wall.  At first, I thought:  what a funky looking clock!  Mrs. Kent???  Is this supposed to be Kathy’s mom, or is/was Kathy a science teacher?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Buy and fly.

FONET  =  OFTEN,  RNIDG  =  GRIND,  SCOREC  =  SOCCER,  NTYMIU  =  MUTINY   —   Giving us:  OTGIOEMT

Clue/Question:  She bought the new wristwatch, and then it was – – –

Breitling Women's Watches | Breitling

Answer:  TIME TO GO

(Eh!  A little too simplistic to even qualify for a stinky pun.  The best thing I can say about it is that I think it took the full combination of the buyer’s dialog, the clue/question, the final answer slot layout, and the expression on the buyer’s face, to get the answer.  I know that some of you solvers are a little less visual in solving these Jumbles.

Unless this has come up on some Sunday in the past, I believe that we are seeing another new clue word today, in “soccer”!  It will soon be joining the other Jumble clue words on the world famous ralis95 clue word database!  Two new jumbles, but we’ve definitely seen “fonet” and “rnidg” in the past.  The answer letter layout was an admirable eight letter jumble.  By itself, it gave nothing away.

Fine jewelry counter cartoon.  Nice attention to detail.  And, I like the expression on the buyer’s face.  Not Jumble Hall of Fame material, but the Time theme ones are usually pretty easy to get.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Fridays with Grandpa | Parker Schaffel

Answer:  MEMORY LANE

(Bowling was never really my forté.  With a little practice, I’m atleast respectable, but I’ve never come close to a 300 game.  I’ve never been able to develop the proper spin, necessary to pick up the more difficult spares.  My brother and I used to bowl a lot when we were in our teens and early twenties.  He usually beat me.  It’s a lot of fun.

I was dumbfounded when I consulted the ralis95 clue word database, and found out that “sassy” is a new clue word!  That word seems to be everywhere!  But, apparently not in the Jumble world.  Hopefully, the A/C is working well at ralis95’s house, as they’ve been experiencing a massive heatwave.  They’re flirting with a week’s worth – or more – of near 100° temps!  With no real break until Sunday-Monday!  All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was another nifty ten letter jumble.  Not obvious, but the final answer came to me right away.

Great cartoon of a bowling alley.  I remember both Brunswick and AMF when it came to bowling.  It looks like Gramps’ bowling days are over.  I guess all things must pass.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
