Pre-Answer:  Five Words  (2-letters)  THE  (7-letters)  (3-letters)  (2-letters)

The Palisades cliffs, a natural monument in New Jersey

Answer:  ON THE LOOKOUT FOR IT

(Loooking goood!  Who used to say that?  Somebody Latino, I’m pretty sure.  It was a long time ago.  Maybe it was Cheech Marin?  Maybe it was from an old SNL skit?  Does it ring any bells with any of you guys?  As you drive up the Palisades Interstate Parkway, from NYC – well, actually from Fort Lee, NJ – there are a couple of scenic overlooks that you can stop at.  The Palisades rise to a height of 540 feet on the west side of the Hudson River, giving people a great view.  The PIP is a very scenic drive.  You wouldn’t believe you’re only a couple of miles from one of the most populous cities in the world.  At least early on.  It runs 38.25 miles, up to the Bear Mountain Bridge.

No surprises on the clue word scene!  They’re all members of the ralis95 clue word database.  However, every one of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I had to skip over “tuorpo”, and come back to it.  I saw the other five right off the bat though.  We had “oddity” last Sunday!  If David L. Hoyt is on the lookout for a “new” five-letter clue word he should use SPOOK.  It’s NOT on the list.  The answer letter layout was a forceful fourteen letter jumble.  I found nothing obvious about it.  The clue/question, and the great cartoon, set up the final answer very nicely.

Great cartoon of the scenic overlook.  It looks like they’re pretty high up there.  There seems to be a winding river down below.  Lots of fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SMOOTH OPERATOR

(This was not automatic for me, by a longshot!  I think it’s long overdue for longshot to be considered a compound word!  Because of the excellent answer letter layout, and the cartoon’s dialog, I thought that the first word was going to be MASTER.  But, that left me with ROHOOTOP!  I don’t think anything can be done with that.  But, there was enough there for me to see OPERATOR, which then gave me SMOOTH.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “rrimpe” before.  Great cartoon!  It looks like our nurse has had some work done.  I can’t make out what she’s holding in her hand though.  Is it relevant, or is there . . . “No need to ask”?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
