Clue/Question:  She’d been making mittens for more than 60 years and was – – –

Bernie Mittens, Socks and Sweater Patterns - Mother Knitter | Sandnes Garn  Yarn in USA

Answer:  AN OLD HAND AT IT

(In more ways than one, I’m sure!  With my hands, my skin has gotten so thin.  You can easily see my veins.  And, when they’re straight/relaxed the skin has a crepe paper aspect to it.  The  hands always give your age away.  One of the many joys of aging!  The Jumble Answer was a fun pun.  I had to coach my daughter a little bit for her to see it.  She wasn’t familiar with the expression.  But, she liked it!

We have a new clue word today in “ninja”!  The big boss-man, ralis95, will have to add it to his world famous clue word database.  I believe all of the jumbles are new today.  I added them as Tags, but I can’t currently see them.  Hopefully, they show when I post this.  Ninja definitely took a few looks!  The other clue words came to me immediately.  The answer letter layout is a tris·kai·dek·a-jumble!  Beautifully cryptic.  Nothing given away.  But I think most of you guys figured this out.

With the sweater and the mittens, this definitely looks like our Bernie Sanders!  Nice job, Jeff!  It doesn’t look a whole lot like Jane, but maybe she looks more grandmotherly when she’s at home.  Cute kid.  You really need woolen mittens – and sweaters – for those Vermont winters!   Thankfully, we’re finally seeing spring-like weather around here.  Heard some peepers the other night!  Happy Passover to all of our Jewish readers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy Birthday to Heb Alpert!

Clue/Question:  What an overloaded dock can create.

Answer:  PIER PRESSURE

(Decent pun.  A nice, long answer.  But, not a particularly difficult one.  Right, guys?  The clue words are basic stuff.  Although, there could be a cryptic 9/11 message they’re trying to convey.  Hmmm.  I added the quotation marks, because I figured they just didn’t have enough space for them.  Keep reading between the lines, folks!)   —   YUR  🙂
