SATTY  =  TASTY,  VOLNE  =  NOVEL,  RIHFTT  =  THRIFT,  WKEYEL  =  WEEKLY   —   Giving us:  ASTNOLITWEL

Answer:  ALL SET TO WIN

(This one wasn’t a piece of cake either!  It took me a couple of minutes to come up with.  No new clue words and only two new jumbles today.  We’ve seen “satty” and “volne” before.

The answer letter layout was a wonderful jumble.  It didn’t give anything away.

The cartoon was a classic tennis scene.  Did Kathy ever play Billie Jean???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  LUG WRENCHES

(A perfectly inflated pun!  I wouldn’t be surprised if this gave some of you a little trouble.  Even though all of the clue words were old friends, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I hesitated on “wacky” because I always think it’s whacky.

The answer letter layout was a sublime jumble.  I think it gave absolutely nothing away.

The cartoon does a great job of showing the guy struggling with all of his wrenches.  Even if he had his tool box he’d still be lugging his wrenches.  Right?  Fun Jumble though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Springtime is the land awakening.  The March winds are the morning yawn.”   —   Lewis Grizzard

(A generally very descriptive summation of things.  This year we’re looking at 36° on the first day of Spring, and there is still snow on the ground.  They’re even talking about more snow coming in the next few days.  Then, I’m sure we’ll shoot right up to 70° for a week.  Then to 80°+ for the rest of the “Spring”.  We’ll likely see a heatwave before the Summer solstice.  I miss the old, more predictable seasons.  This guy, Grizzard, lived a short but interesting life.  But, look at all of the fun that he’s missing out on!  Be well and do good, my friends.  Happy Spring.)   —   YUR

KAARP  =  PARKA,  KLFEU  =  FLUKE,  CLORSL  =  SCROLL,  TAPDUE  =  UPDATE   —   Giving us:  PAAFESCLUDA

Clue/Question:  The bird that accidentally flew inside the house – – –

Answer:  CAUSED A FLAP

(I like it!  A good stinky pun.  It was just out there enough so it wasn’t obvious.  All of the clue words were old favorites.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “clorsl” having been definitely  used before. 

The answer letter layout was an awesome jumble.  David Hoyt is really on top of his game.

Jeff’s cartoon proves what an artist he is.  I really enjoyed the perspective.  A real bird’s eye view.  The bird might look a little angry, but I’m betting that he/she is just scared.  Open a door and a window, or two, and they’ll find their way out.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Most people in this society who aren’t actively mad are, at best, reformed or potential lunatics.”   —   Susan Sontag

(They must be running a special on Sue Sontag quotes!  Buy one, get one free!  Can’t argue with her here.  If I’m not active, I’ve definitely got the potential.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
