Billie Jean King Explains Why Sports Is the Perfect Platform for Change

Answer:  SET IN MOTION

(Gotta love this pun!  Our guys are aces when it comes to our favorite word game.  No point in seeking fault with today’s entry.  Let us set our sights on those who serve the puzzle world.  No one can match Hoyt and Knurek!  Advantage . . . us!

Today’s volley of clue words currently reside on the court of ralis95.  Though, netnet, all of the jumbles are rallying as new!  They all felt like lob shots to me though.  The answer letter layout was an eleven letter grand slam!  It took me a couple of foot faults before I was able to see the final answer.  Going from NET to SET was my break point!

Fine cartoon of spectators watching the beginning of the tennis match.  The players do not appear to be female, but the scoreboard indicates that Jeff’s wife Kathy Kent might be playing Billie Jean King!  Maybe that is Kathy’s dream?  A very competitive Jumble today.  Game, Set, Match.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Understanding Credit

Visual Description:  . . . where credit is due?

LCXEE  =  EXCEL,  SCAEE  =  CEASE,  PCNOOH  =  PONCHO,  PSIRTC  =  SCRIPT   —   Giving us:  EXEEASPNHSIT

Clue/Question:  Her joke about her husband’s high credit card balance was – – – 

Happy Couple Paying Bills Online 2 Free Stock Video Footage Download Clips  People

Answer:  AT HIS EXPENSE

(A pun of bad merit!  Credit cards can really be a sneaky curse.  They entice you with these ridiculous “introductory” rates, sometimes as low as 0%.  And then, after 6 months or a year, it shoots up to 18.15%, 19, 20, up to 24.9% APR (Annual Percentage Rate).  Meanwhile, the banks borrow money from the Fed at – now – 0.5%, and only payout 0.03% to 0.06% for interest checking/savings.  I know all about the cost of doing business, but the banks are making a fortune off of us, folks.  And, don’t even get me started on their late payment fees!  Obama supposedly enacted some laws to limit rates and fees, but it doesn’t look like they’re being enforced.  Perhaps 45 repealed them?  I’m just glad that I have a few cards that charge 13.24%, 10.99% and 9.24%, and I make sure I’m never late.

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  However, it looks like all of the jumbles are new.  None of them tripped me up today.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was admirably cryptic.  It wasn’t until I looked at the final answer slots layout that the answer came to me.

Nice little domestic scene cartoon, of a husband and wife exchanging little digs.  I just paid some bills – online of course – last night!  It’s kind of like a never ending battle.  But currently I’m holding my own.  Fun Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

GOT YOUR FIRST DOOR DING? - YouTube

Visual Description:  Dented psyche.

KOPRE  =  POKER,  RSEDS  =  DRESS,  SACION  =  CASINO,  ELYPES  =  SLEEPY   —   Giving us:  POEDRSINSE

Clue/Question:  After seeing his new car’s first door ding, he experienced a little – – –

The Chow Chow Lab Mix Characteristics, Temperament, and Names?

Answer:  DEPRESSION

(A devastating Jumble pun!  But he’ll get over it . . . eventually.  We’d all like to keep our cars as pristine as possible, but somedings just can’t be avoided.  I remember when my first born fell – while playing – on some concrete steps, and got a good bloody scrape on his little forehead.  It was the very first time my precious son was marred.  Before that time he was still factory fresh, so I was very upset.  But it was just the first of many boo-boos and breaks that he would experience in life.  He’s made it to age 35, and he’s as tall, strong and handsome as can be – smart too – so boo-boos can’t break you.

All of today’s clue words are classics.  Some we haven’t seen in a while.  Ya can’t spell “casino” without sin, folks!  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “kopre” and “rseds” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was another tenacious ten letter jumble!  I thought that it disguised the final answer very nicely.  It took a minute for DEPRESSION to set in.  But I didn’t let it get me down.

Fine cartoon of a guy lamenting a dent in his new car.  The female significant other is doing her best to cheer him up, with a little rationalization.  It was bound to happen, sooner or later.  Now he can move on, and worry about other things!  LOL!  I was worried that we were going to lose Wally this weekend.  He vomited 11 times on Saturday, and I had to take him to an emergency veterinary hospital.  He couldn’t even hold down water.  He was running a bit of a fever, but I guess most of his vitals were decent.  They gave him an IV to replenish all his lost fluids, and a shot to prevent the vomiting and nausea.  He was totally out of it all day Sunday.  Weak as a kitten, with absolutely NO appetite.  But he could drink water!  It was kind of touch and go last night, but this morning he woke up and actually ate something!  He’s got to take it slow, but he is coming around to his old self.  My depression has been lifted!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  This is pretty close to what my Wally looks like!     YUR

Clue/Question:  The moonshiner was getting up there in age, but he and his business were – – –

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

Legend or lawbreaker: The real story of Popcorn Sutton

Answer:  STILL GOING STRONG

(The gubmint don’t take kindly to moonshiners!  Even when they make for cute Jumble puns!  They send out these agents, called “revenuers”, to seek out and destroy the stills and any hooch produced by them.  I think they’re a division of the IRS, because the biggest issue is legitimate liquor is all taxed!  They’re just doin’ their jobs, but they’re a dern nuisance!  I’ve had the eastern/central European version of moonshine in homemade slivovitz.  That is some mighty potent stuff!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Surprisingly, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  None of them gave me any trouble though.  The answer letter layout was a splendid sixteen letter jumble.  Decently cryptic.  But there was just so much in the cartoon and the clue/question that the final answer came to me immediately.

I love the cartoon of the backwoods barista and his larynx stunned customer.  That old still has been producing corn squeezin’s fer many a yar!  But the old coot is keeping up with the times.  Ya wants ta get folks to pay more money?  Slap the word “craft” onto your product.  Either that or “artisanal”.  The Generation X/Y/Z folks will eat that up with a spoon!  LOL!  Fun Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

ALTSN  =  SLANT,  FTONE  =  OFTEN,  RALSAY  =  SALARY,  BERAGL  =  GARBLE   —   Giving us:  LTOTNSALGA

Clue/Question:  She had tried to reach the par 5 in two shots for years.  She finally did it, – – –

Couples Jamboree | Events | Treetops Resort

Answer:  AT LONG LAST

(Very impressive!  Both the Jumble pun, and the golf accomplishment!  Getting on the green of a par 5 in two shots is no small feat.  Not that I’m an active golfer, but I have golfed, and I don’t remember getting on one in two shots.  Of course there are some par fives that some might consider long par fours – a short par 5 – and you have a better chance of getting on in two with those.

All familiar old clue words today.  It’s definitely been a while since we’ve seen “garble”!  All of today’s jumbles have come up as new though.  The answer letter layout was a tenacious ten letter jumble.  It kept me in the dark, until I rewrote it as consonants :  GLLNSTT and vowels:  AAO.  That helped me to see the answer . . . at long last!

Great cartoon of a couple golfing.  I don’t really recognize them as famous, but the man kind of looks like an older Chevy Chase.  This looks like a links course to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  “To the Bat-Cave, Robin!”

LIHEW  =  WHILE,  OWSNO  =  SWOON,  CLEALO  =  LOCALE,  LDHUED  =  HUDDLE   —   Giving us:  WHLEWOOLOALHDL

Clue/Question:  When bats turned the small cave’s chamber into a shrine, it was a – – –

Stalagmite Chronicles Climate Whiplash in California's Past | Inside Science

Answer:  HALLOWED HOLLOW

(I love the alliterative stinky puns!  Puns and alliteration go together like . . . well, I don’t know, like cheesy amateurish poetry?  How’s that sound?  Like limericks, or rap/hip-hop music.  Didn’t the early Christians kind of hang out in grottoes and catacombs, back when the Roman Empire wasn’t cool with the new religion?  So, there must be some hallowed hollows out there!  Right?

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “lihew” and “owsno” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic fourteen letter jumble.  Marvelously cryptic.  From the clue/question word “shrine” I was able to come up with HALLOWED.  And from the WHLOOL the word HOLLOW filled the void!

Fun cartoon of the bats in the cave.  Not sure if those are a couple of stalagmites on the cave’s floor, or piles of guano!  I really like the little altar they erected for where the Bat-Signal shows up!  I’m not sure what those two things in front of the altar are.  Damn you Gannett, for shrinking the Jumble!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Why Family Dinners Still Matter - Ministry to Parents

Answer:  PREOCCUPATION

(She does seem fixated on coming up with a career path!  I guess some kids are like that.  From things they excelled at in high school, or just from some kind of lifelong dream, they have a strong idea for what they want to major in.  Or, at least they think they do.  Experiences have a way of changing one’s mind.  Me?  I entered college as a totally certain, and fully committed, Undecided major.  I didn’t have a clue as to what I was going to do.  All I knew was that I had to be in college.  But a good number of kids who thought they knew what they wanted end up changing their majors.  Stuff happens!

Familiar friend clue words.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “nulego” before.  And, I had a little trouble seeing “lounge” again.  The answer letter layout was a spectacular thirteen letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.

Great kitchen table family scene.  That’s where so many of life’s decisions are made.  A wonderful Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

4 Planes Every Skydiver Should Know About

Answer:  FALLING PRICES

(Good one!  When you’re free falling at up to 120 MPH you don’t really smell anything, so it would be tough to call this a stinky pun.  I’ve only done it once, and I’m not sure when/if I might do it again, but it was a blast.  I’m sure that the price has increased quite a bit since 2005, but the experience was worth it.  When you’re a novice you really should do a tandem jump, with a pro attached to your back.  Once you get the hang of it, solo jumps are much cheaper.  I’ve got a nephew who’s jumped about 100 times!

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  But surprisingly all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I was able to see them all immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  I thought that it disguised the final answer beautifully.  The clue/question was just the perfect setup, in my opinion.

Great cartoon of the jump plane, the two paying customers, and perhaps the instructor.  Looking out the door there appears to be three, maybe four, folks who have already jumped and are in free fall.  That fourth one could be a bird I suppose.  They’ll all be landing somewhere out in some rural area.  I like that sign by the foot of the door.  They could add to it:  It’s a Real Doozy!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Intera Foldable Dog Pet Bath Pool, 63'' Diameter Large Collapsible Wading  Pool Pits Ball Pool Portable Bathing Swimming Tub XL Kiddie Pool for Dogs  Cats and Kids Indoor & Outdoor Use, Blue -

Answer:  WADING ROOM

(Classically stinky pun!  But it also seemed like a fresh idea.  A bird specialist veterinarian with a wading pool in her waiting room.  I’m sure that all the old birds flock to her.  But not necessarily the swimming birds, like ducks, geese, loons, storks, etc..  Just the ones who like to stand around in the shallower waters.  It’s a good thing that they all have those longer legs!

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles do appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “voemi” before.  The only one that I had any difficulty with was “raohut”.  It took me a few looks to see “author”.  The answer letter layout was another tidy ten letter jumble.  Beautifully cryptic, but the combination of the cartoon and the quotation marks in the final answer slots made for a quick solve.

Really cute cartoon!  Flamingos really stand out with their hooked beaks.  Cranes are probably the biggest of the others.  But herons, egrets and cranes all have some similarities.  We’ve got some great blue herons that occasionally fly over the house.  Every time I see one it reminds me of a pterodactyl!  They are pretty huge.  And a little freaky.  Great Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Our Discussion with Tracy Clark on "Broken Places"

Answer:  AN OPEN BOOK

(Getting to know the famous author is always interesting to the readers.  Readers want the inside scoop on where the author is coming from, and how that might’ve influenced some of the stories and their characters.  Cop – and ex-cop – mysteries are usually pretty popular stories.  I’ve read a number of the James Patterson novels.  I’m sure the Tracy Clark stories are similarly entertaining.

We have seen all of today’s clue words before.  However, all four jumbles came up as new for me.  Regardless, I didn’t find any of them to be difficult to unscramble.  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  I thought that it was wonderfully cryptic.  The layout of the final answer slots made for a pretty quick solve.

Great cartoon of folks yearning to hear from their favorite author, at an area book store.  Ms. Clark seems to be promoting her book:  “Borrowed Time”.  Not really her latest book, but maybe this is one of her most popular stories, and folks would like a signed copy from the author.  Hey, they also make for great gifts!  Is that David L. Hoyt waiting to meet the author?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
