Answer:  MOWNING

(Very cute.  No new clue words today, and only one new jumble.  We’ve seen “cinew”, “norleg” and “mifyan” before.  “norleg” actually gave me pause!  Nicely cryptic answer letter layout.  And, a fine cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ARGUE THE POINT

(Remember when spears were high tech?  Well, even ralis95 isn’t THAT old!  No, there were no new clue words today.  I just thought I’d take a cheap shot.  Two of the jumbles came up as new.  But, we’ve definitely seen “polee” and “trageh” before.  The answer letter layout did an excellent job of concealing the answer.  I started by figuring the middle word was THE, and worked from there.  I did this this morning and put it aside, so I don’t remember if I saw ARGUE or POINT next.  At this point what’s the point?  No one is going to argue with me about it.  Right?  The cartoon deserves to be full sized!  The paper I’m using is reduced, but The Post Star – online – version is great!  Much easier to see the great detail.  Satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MIDDLEAGES

(They should be so lucky, to live so long!  Especially, in their chosen careers.  Our faithful Sirs, David and Jeff, have bestowed upon us a most excellent Jumble.  Whilst all the clue words were true and blue, their jumbled words are clad in a fresh newness.  The answer letter layout was both valiant and gallant.  It chivalrously kept the answer discreet.  The cartoon . . . nay, the medieval masterpiece . . . was both noble and fair, with accomplished armoured detail.  Be well, and doest thy good, loyal confidants.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GUT FEELING

(A lot of people checked in on yesterday’s Jumble Spoiler, presumably to see which order of the words was the intended.  Fortunately, our good nephew, David L. Hoyt, came in with a clarifying comment.  Either way could have worked, but it turned out the way that I spoiled it was THE answer.

Today we – surprisingly – have a new clue word, in “buggy”!  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database.  I guess it’s been a few weeks.  Both “kaley” and “cintee” have been used as jumbles in the past.  The answer letter layout did a wonderful job of obscuring the answer.  I did not see GUT until I checked off the letters for FEELING.  Then, it punched me in the gut!  Just kidding.  Amusing cartoon.  It looks like hubby is holding some kind of wrap.  And, Fido looks like he’s never heard his master like that before.  Good Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SOARING PROFITS

(“Off we go into the wild blue yonder, Climbing high into the sun.”  I think Jeff always wanted to be a jet pilot!  It’s not too late, at least to be a regular pilot.  I bet he could even afford a small plane . . . that Mr. Bigshot!  LOL!  There were no new clue words today, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen both “goubs” and “storyf” before.  Not that it’s a new word, but I can remember when I first heard the word “bogus” . . . and I thought somebody had just made the word up!  The answer letter layout was both big and beautiful.  It did a very nice job of hiding the 14 letter answer.  I also remember when the first 747s came out.  Everyone was pretty much in awe of the Jumbo Jet, with its double-deck.  I’ve only flown in them a few times.  Usually for international flights.  It seems they’re not used as much for simple domestic flights.  They are still very impressive.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HEAD CHEF

(A fragrant pun, indeed!  Hints of clove and cinnamon too.  There are no new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles are coming up as new.  We’ve seen both “ahcov” and “curpes” before.  Fine job with the answer letter layout.  It was also a nice jumble.  The cartoon would make Washington Irving proud.  It’s putting me in the mood for some pumpkin pie, although it’s kinda the opposite season for it.  Be well and do good, friends.  Happy first day of Spring!)   —   YUR

Answer:  AND SEW ON, AND SEW ON

(I thought there was a nice little challenge to today’s Sunday Jumble!  Super clue words.  All old favorites.  I thought both “sagins” and “gonelu” were super jumbles, but, as it turns out, we’ve seen both of them before.  I also liked “dulced” and “haywon”, but I thought all the jumbles were nicely cryptic.  The answer letter layout was a bit of a beast!  If I hadn’t picked up on the pun, it might have taken me a long time to solve the answer.  The quotation marks were a big help.  Fine cartoon too, as well.  It conveyed the one lady’s exhaustion very well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
