Answer:  ABOUT TO BEGIN

(Gotta love sports Jumbles!  Especially, boxing ones.  All of the clue words are old favorites, but a couple of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen both “sihot” and “ninett” before.  Excellent answer letter layout!  Nothing obvious there.  Great pre-fight cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GOURDGEOUS

(Great seasonal Jumble!  A real stinker of a pun though!  There were no new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “pruep” having definitely been used before.  The clue word “glory” spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was pretty nifty too.  My cartoon is on the small side, but those do look like some beautiful pumpkins!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  UP TWO NO GOOD

(Very good pun.  Yer Uncle approves.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I didn’t think that any of them were too tough.  Let me know which ones may have caused you some pause.  The answer letter layout was VERY nicely cryptic.  A wonderful jumble.  But, the quotation marks were definitely a big help today.  And, of course, Jeff’s great cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If I’m not with somebody who excites or inspires me, then I’d rater be by myself.”   —   Blake Lively

(I must say, this is a pretty good quote!  This is our first Blake Lively quote.  She’s only 30, but compared to my son, she looks very mature.  When my son is clean shaven, he looks like he’s 17 or 18.  He’s more than handsome enough for her though.  If she’s interested in an extremely handsome, and youthful looking, 30 year old man-child, then I’ve got the man for her!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What a bargain grandchildren are!  I give them my loose change, and they give me a million dollars’ worth of pleasure.   —   Gene Perret

(The ones who might enjoy loose change are too young to give it to, because they are likely to swallow it.  And, the older ones are looking for bills these days!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
