Answer:  HAVE AN “ICE” DAY

(This is such a silly pun.  Ya just gotta love it!  Not particularly difficult, but a lot of fun.  All the clue words were old favorites.  But, three of the jumbles came up as new.  Mr. Hoyt has used “herrad” before.  The answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  But, it’s the great cartoon that brings it all together.  The hubby penguin is sitting on the eggs.  They’re in an igloo, sitting at an ice table, while two of his buddy penguins wait for him at the door, with hockey sticks!  The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks, 4 games to 2, to become the 2016 NHL Champions, just a couple of weeks ago.  The ironic thing is the Penguins used to play in an arena that was known as “The Igloo”.  The old Civic Arena was in use between 1967 and 2010.  It has since been torn down, but I was fortunate enough to see the Penguins play there back in 1976.  Don’t ask me who they played, or if they won, because that was a L O N G time ago, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  To “Tony Hawk”, who commented on a Jumble from 2014.  Your comment WAS very relevant to the post, but I make it a point NOT to “approve” comments on posts that old.  I would make an exception IF you were a regular follower/commenter, who had previously commented on something more recent, but the majority of comments that come up on these older posts are spammers.  So, I hope you understand my concern.  If you comment on something current, I’d be happy to “approve” that.  I’ll hold on to your comment for another week, and if you DO comment on something current then I’ll reconsider “approving” the older comment.     YUR

Answer:  IN THE FUTURE

(Not bad!  Even thought the answer letter layout was excellent, I quickly realized that the third word was FUTURE.  From there it was easy to get IN THE.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  “Utter” actually comes up in the ralis95 clue word database five times, due to butter, gutter, mutter, putter and utter.  The jumble “cante” has been used before, but the other three came up as new.  The cartoon is great, with the three guys in costume, the old style Coke bottles, and the old console television.  Kids today don’t realize that TVs used be – essentially – furniture.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The owner of the maid service was making a – – –

English: Central American Integration System Español: Sistema de la Integración Centroamericana (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  TIDY PROFIT

(I wonder if she’s hiring a lot of Mexican and – other Central American – laborers, like the landscapers do?  This is one of the main reasons why I still cut my own lawn, folks.  I’m not fond of the idea of padding the pockets of some crumb bum who underpays desperate people.  Some will say:  Well, that’s just Capitalism, Unc!  But, I see it as one short step above slavery.  Besides, if cutting my own lawn was good enough for my dad, then it’s good enough for me.  I get some natural vitamin D, from the sunshine, I get a good workout, and I get a little self-satisfaction out of it.  I know I’m in the minority on this . . . but what else is new!

Can you believe that “loudly” has never been used before as a clue word?  Our good buddy, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database for this one.  The jumble “difgir” appears to be new, but we’ve seen both “lurty” and “siypt” before.  The answer letter layout was a dandy of a jumble.  I can see some of you guys struggling a bit to get today’s answer.  The cartoon shows a very industrious group of ladies!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MAJOR DECISION

(Oh, yeah.  That’s a stinky pun!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  We have definitely seen “gamead” before.  The answer letter layout kind of gave away the word MAJOR, for me.  And from there, it was easy coming up with DECISION.  It looks like Sydney is following in her dad’s footsteps, one way or another. And, isn’t it always the kitchen table for these kind of things?

Yesterday was the busiest – most visits to this blog – day ever!  I guess a lot of people had a tough time accepting the pun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The landlord wouldn’t sign for tenants’ packages, – – –

Answer:  NO ACCEPTIONS

(Great pun, of two of the most misused soundalike words; except and accept!  I really like it!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  Hoyt has used “snapt” before.  I thought the answer letter layout was absolutely brilliant.  No clues there.  Very amusing cartoon.  The delivery van’s name – Huge Prime – would appear to be a takeoff of Amazon Prime.  And, I’m not sure who looks grumpier, the super or his cat!  By now, most of you know that the Brits voted “Brexit“, yesterday.  World markets are not happy about it, but initial reactions are often more than a little knee-jerk.  Let’s hope that cooler heads begin to prevail.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  OF ALL TIME

(A very timely pun!  Today is the day that Great Britain votes on whether to remain – Bremain – or exit – Brexit – the European Union.  They’re saying that the vote is too close to call, as of this morning’s newspaper.  A Brexit victory would have a negative ripple effect on international markets, and could put Great Britain behind the eight ball for a good number of years, according to the “experts”.  Let’s hope that cooler heads prevail!

No new clue words today, yet all of the jumbles came up as new!  I only hesitated on “hraleb” for a couple of seconds.  The answer letter layout was an excellent jumble too.  I don’t think it gave away a thing.  Great likeness of the clock tower.  Typical teens.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
