Clue/Question: The penguins loved the least-populated continent. They enjoyed the – – –
(Fantastic, stinky pun! Best in quite a while, in my opinion. No new clue words, but three of the jumbles came up as new. They’ve used “loctu” before. I though maybe “strand” might be a new clue word, but I guess they just haven’t used it in a while. The answer letter layout was another wonderful jumble. It gave nothing away. Nice job, David. I wish I had the larger sized Jumble, because I’m sure I’m missing a lot of detail in Jeff’s cartoon. But, puffins and penguins are always cute. Hey! Isn’t that Opus in the background??? He was one of my favorite comics characters. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: When they finished drilling for water, the owner of the property said – – –
Answer: WELL DONE
(Make mine medium rare, please! This was kind of a typical Monday Jumble. Not all that tough, with no new clue words, but three new jumbles. The guys have used “vonle” before. Decent answer letter layout. Great cartoon, but I only have the reduced sized one, so I can’t make out any specific detail. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Pre-Answer: Three Words (4-letters) (4-letters) (6-letters)
Answer: FALL FAST ASLEEP
(Not bad. No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new. Even so, I saw them all immediately. The answer letter layout was a masterful jumble! I was looking for a tougher answer, but then the Fs and As set me on the simpler path. Brilliant cartoon though! I really liked the dog sleeping on the parachute, at the foot of the bed. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Answer: “WEIGHT“ AND SEE
(Nice pun. All of the clue words were old favorites, but only “cadye” has been used as a jumble before. The other three appear to be new. The answer letter layout was superlative! A first class, super jumble! The cartoon is another Jeff Knurek masterpiece. The parents seem to be eating Vienna sausages! Ah-nold is Austrian! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: The delivery of diamonds, rubies and emeralds arrived at the store – – –
Answer: ON “SCHED-JEWEL”
(What, no sapphires??? Great pun! Even made me think for about half a minute. No new clue words, but three of the jumbles were new. They’ve used “leerd” before. It always throws me a little when they use the word “joist”. It’s a word that certain professions know, like architects and construction people. But, it’s not really a widely used word. The answer letter layout was another wonderful jumble. Great clues in the cartoon! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
