Review of My First Ticonderoga. – PENCIL REVOLUTION!

Answer:  STRAIGHT AS

(Good for you, sweetheart!  Nobody likes crooked A’s!  It’s a good thing that schools at least still teach printing.  They don’t seem to care about handwriting – also called “cursive” – much these days.  Remember those monster, fat pencils that we all learned to write/print with?  I seem to remember them all being black when I was a kid.  Supposedly, young children don’t have the dexterity to write with the standard, thinner pencils, so that’s what the fat ones are for.  I guess my kids must’ve used them, but I remember my using them when I was a tyke, for sure.

None of this day’s clue words were new.  We’ve seen ’em all before.  Only one of the jumbles is coming up as new, as we’ve seen “cabka”, “tyept”, and “ssuhaq” in previous Jumbles.  “Aback” is the very first word on the world famous ralis95 clue word database!  Can you guess what the very last word on the list is?  No?  Then I’ll tell you.  It’s ZOOMED!  Hey, David L. Hoyt!  I got one you haven’t used yet.  How about ZOUNDS?  It’s a little Shakespearean, but it is in all the dictionaries.  No charge, cuz!  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  I liked how the A’, T’s and S’s all repeated.  I think the cartoon’s visual might have been the biggest clue to the final answer.

Great kitchen table family scene cartoon.  Mom and Dad are as pleased as punch, making the little girl proud of her accomplishment.  I liked the little box of crayons on the table, and also the little flowered backpack on the other kitchen chair.  A fine Monday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GUNG HOE

(An earthy pun!  As all stinky puns are.  Only a seven letter long answer, but maybe not that easy, if you’re not familiar with gardening tools, and this expression.  Gung Ho is a popular expression of enthusiasm, particularly of the United State Marines, but it has kind of changed from its Chinese origins.  I can still see its positive link though.

No new clue words today, yet all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  None of them tripped me up today.  The answer letter layout was smartly cryptic.  Especially, for being only seven letters long.

Nice domestic, suburban cartoon.  The guy appears to be wearing a visor.  He’s got either rosy cheeks, or a little smudge of dirt on them.  And, his trousers legs are covered in dirt.  You can see a little added emphasis to the hoe also.  And, if you look closely, you can see they both seem to be wearing work gloves.  They do help cut down on blisters.  Nice little Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
