Life is a quest and love a quarrel.  Here is a place for me to lie.”   —   Edna St. Vincent Millay

Jumble Spoiler – 02/15/19

Visual Description:  Braking news!

HTISF  =  SHIFT,  TOPOH  =  PHOTO,  ACCSTU  =  CACTUS,  LEEUFY  =   EYEFUL   —   Giving us:  SHTHOTCACTEEU

Clue/Question:  When the anchorman was told there was a pursuit in progress, he – – –

Answer:  CUT TO THE CHASE

(Very good!  I think this partially how the expression came about, anyway.  So, it’s not really a stinky pun.  Just kind of an update to the original reason for the saying.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “leeufy” having definitely been used before.  It’s a great jumble though.  The answer letter layout was a great 13-letter jumble.  But the cartoon, and the clue/question, just set this one up so well, that I got it immediately.

Fine cartoon.  My cable provider does not carry Jumble TV.  does yours?  I’m off to watch “Green Book”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Love is anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of earth.”   —   Emily Dickinson

(My brain hurts!  She makes love sound like a math equation!  No wonder love can be so confusing!  Just kidding, folks.  Love is an eternal force of the universe.  Don’t try to fight it.  Accept it.  Embrace it.  Harness it and champion it, for the good of mankind and the world.  Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  Some online sites have the last word of this quotation as “breath”.  Why?  I know not.  I like it better with “earth”.   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 02/14/19

Visual Description:  Washington Square Arch meetups.

POMHO  =  OOMPH,  LEYID  =  YIELD,  YALVEL  =  VALLEY,  EEWIDV  =  VIEWED   —   Giving us:  OOYEVLYVED

Clue/Question:  The pigeons had been married for years but were still – – –

Answer:  LOVEYDOVEY

(Supposedly, pigeons mate for life.  But, it’s kinda up to the hen to resist the advances of the more dominant cocks.  Because the cockier cocks always want a little more.  Ain’t that always the way?!  But, by and large, they do mate for life.  I basically know squat about pigeons, but this is what I read.

We have a brand new clue word today, in “viewed”.  Our old pal, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database once again!  Its jumble “eewidv” gave me the most trouble.  I didn’t try all that hard to solve it, and backed into it.  The cartoon caught my eye.  The jumble “pomho” is new but we’ve seen both “leyid” and “yalvel” before.  The answer letter layout was a fine 10-letter jumble, but being Valentine’s Day the answer did kind of jump off the page.

Great cartoon of lovers under, and atop, the Washington Square Arch, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City.  It’s one of the more iconic locations in NYC.  A great place for a rendezvous.  I hope that everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What I hear when I’m being yelled at is people caring really loudly at me.”   —   Leslie Knope

(This line is both humorous and sage.  If you don’t really care about the person . . . why bother yelling at them?  Amy Poehler has been making me laugh for years!  She is just so smart and talented.  I kind of avoid most sitcoms, but I recently saw an episode of “Parks and Recreation” on Comedy Central, and I laughed my butt off!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 02/13/19

Visual Description:  Tribune running a King Feature?

CIFNH  =  FINCH,  PEYMT  =  EMPTY,  LWWIOL  =  WILLOW,  EPCORP  =  COPPER   —   Giving us:  INETWWOR

Clue/Question:  He needed to get started on his new novel and would begin – – –

Answer:  WRITE NOW

(What are you gonna do?  When are you gonna do it?  Combine the two and what do you get?  Today’s Jumble answer!  When I saw the cartoon, I thought that the answer might be a little more specific.  This didn’t have to be Stephen King.  But, it was.  Okie doke then.

All of today’s clue words are oldies but goodies.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “lwwiol” having definitely been used before.  The clue word “empty” spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was a nice eight letter jumble.  I didn’t find anything obvious about it.

Fine likeness of Stephen King . . . the younger?  Ol’ Stephen is getting up there!  But, you’re only as old as you feel.  Right?  With his kinda dough, and a supportive wife and family, I’m sure he’s holding up alright.  I just checked, and it’s even a good likeness of his wife, Tabitha!  Nice job, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If only one could tell true love from false love, as one can tell mushrooms from toadstools.”   —   Katherine Mansfield

(I fail on both accounts.  Don’t rely on me when foraging in the woods.  It has been quite some time since we’ve had a quote from this lovely writer of short stories, who died far too young.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
