Visual Description:  Delivery before descent.

CINME  =  MINCE,  UKAQC  =  QUACK,  KOIREO  =  ROOKIE,  ARUBUE  =  BUREAU   —   Giving us:  INAROEBR

Clue/Question:  The baby delivered at 30,000 feet was – – –

Image result for The Army Airborne

Answer:  AIRBORNE

(A very elevated pun!  Maybe the boy will attend the Army Airborne School, in 18 or 19 years!  It’s possible.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  However, all the jumbles came up as new.  I had no trouble with any of them today.  The answer letter layout was a very good jumble.  Nothing given away.  Fun cartoon.  This shouldn’t happen, generally.  But, some women like to push the envelope, and some babies like to push prematurely.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

MARDIE  =  ADMIRE,  NHEIRD  =  HINDER,  LENGCA  =  GLANCE,  FABELF  =  BAFFLE,  YORRAT  =  ROTARY,  ZEHEWE  =  WHEEZE   —   Giving us:  DIRHIRANEFFRTAWEE

Pre-Answer:  Two Words  (first with a hyphen)  (4-letters) – (7-letters)  (6-letters)

Image result for local TV newsrooms

Answer:  FAIR-WEATHER FRIEND

(Very good, stinky pun.  All of the jumbles were new and challenging today.  I even had to back into “admire”!  None of the clue words were new though.  Hoyt’s answer letter layout would have been a challenge, had I not been able to pick up on the expression.  Jeff’s cartoon set everything up very nicely.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SNIPPY

(Ooh!  A sharp pun!  There are all old favorite clue words today, however all of their jumbles are coming up as new.  I didn’t have any trouble with any of them today.  The answer letter layout was good enough, for such a short answer.  Cute cartoon.  I think the big sis could have kept the scissors, and handle the situation much better, if she hadn’t used such cutting remarks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The struggling young golfer wanted to quit, but her coach recommended she – – –

Answer:  STAY THE COURSE

(“Not gunna do it.”  “Read my lips.  No new taxes!”  Ah, yes.  The good old days, when an Ex-CIA Director ran the country.  And, no one had an inkling that – eight years after him – we’d have eight years of . . . his Secretary of Defense running the country!  Oh, c’mon now.  You don’t really think the guy choking on the pretzels was in charge.  Do you?  LOL!  Oh, well.  Water under the bridge.  

It’s looking like “kissed” is a new clue word.  Hmm.  Again, this sounds to me like a word we may have had in the last few months.  But, only the big man knows for sure.  ralis95 will search his master file, and, if need be, will enter “kissed” into the vaunted, world famous, clue word database!  It’s looking like we have seen the jumble “ructo” before, though the other three came up as new.  THE answer letter layout was alright, I guess.  Fine golf cartoon.  I wonder if Jeff had to fight the urge to draw either Chevy Chase, or Bill Murray?  Old Carl might not inspire a whole lot of confidence, but old Ty was pretty low key.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The spiders thought their kids were spending too much time – – –

Answer:  ON THE WEB

(Great stinky pun!  And, a nice social commentary.  My February 2017 copy of the ralis95 clue word database does not include the word “wicket”, but to me it sounds very familiar.  As if we’ve had it some time in the last few months.  Our good friend can always refer to his master copy, and add it if need be.  If it had been used before it was not with today’s jumble of it, as all the jumbles came up as new.  It took about a minute for me to make the “neuron” connection.  Maybe, I’m lacking in them.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Very engaging cartoon.  It can’t be easy making spiders look cute.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

YUJIC  =  JUICY,  NEPDU  =  UPEND,  BEBOWL  =  WOBBLE,  TAGRYE  =  GYRATE   —   Giving us:  JUPNOBBGA

Clue/Question:  The barber who cut the Beatles’ hair in 1963 did a – – – 

Image result for Beatles bangs

Answer:  BANGUP JOB

(I apologize, to all who felt that I mislead them, in regards to yesterday’s answer.  I could have easily written “TIE” COBB, but I was trying to make a point about Pete Rose, and his penchant for placing the BET – multiple, actually – while still actively part of the game of baseball.  I realize there have been a few instances where I genuinely did not know the answer, and also a few instances where I made it kind of a game for you guys to give me the answer, but this was not one of those times.  Thank you for the numerous comments, giving me the answer, but that’s not what I was shooting for.  I was hoping to further the debate, of whether Pete Rose should, or shouldn’t, be forgiven for his offences, but it looks like I failed in that regard.

Today’s Jumble was much more cut and dry.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  We have seen “nepdu” before.  I thought “tagrye” was excellent!  I almost, but not quite, thought I might have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was another swell jumble.  The hyphen, in the answer spaces, and the excellent cartoon gave me the answer.  I can’t quite decide if George’s hair has already been cut, or if he’s up next!  It looks just a tad shaggier.  But, that could be just the way his turned out.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
