WYLOL = LOWLY

PODTA = ADOPT

RHOFUT = FOURTH

GULAPE = PLAGUE

CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN ELEVATORS IN BUILDINGS STARTED TO BECOME POPULAR, PEOPLE WERE —

ODOFRLE = FLOORED

Happy Friday morning everyone!  It was a very simple puzzle today with PLAGUE being the only word that required a second glance.  David used an abecedarian word (ADOPT) which is unique as there are only 860 of them in the English language.  With all of the clue words solved, it was on to the cartoon.  Writing out the letters, the answer was immediately visible for a swift and uplifting finish.  I didn’t find any hidden details in Jeff’s cartoon so I’ll wait patiently for another chance on Saturday.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and if you’re traveling, please be safe.  I’ll see you tomorrow.  🙂

TUYPT = PUTTY

SUDEO = DOUSE

GOCCAN = COGNAC

BNILEM = NIMBLE

CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN THE COUPLE TRIED OUT THEIR NEW FURNITURE WHILE WATCHING TV, THEY WATCHED A —

TSOCIM = SITCOM

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Stellar clue words this morning with the first two coming instantly while the last two gave me some time to think.  COGNAC by far was the most difficult for me to decipher and I had to use my pen and notepad to get the job done.  Eleven self-jumbles later, I arrived at the solution and was truly surprised that it put up such a fight.  With it completed and out of the way, I started on NIMBLE which ended up only taking a few extra glances before coming to me.  Moving along to the cartoon, it’s off to Chicago we go where we meet a delightful couple relaxing on their couch while watching television.  At first I thought the male half was Jumble artist Jeff Knurek, however; the lack of a Wilco shirt leads me to believe it was someone else.  The beautiful Chicago skyline can be seen through the window in the background with the Willis (Sears) Tower visible.  Reading the dialogue, I was excited that there was a mention of Seinfeld as it was and probably always will be my favorite television show.  I knew which episode they were watching instantly by the reference to a “Bro” and it is also one of my favorite episodes.  If you’re wondering what a Bro is, think of it as a male version of a female undergarment that is also three letters!  The cartoon answer came quickly as it was only 6-letters and very obvious.  Did you notice the large “J” on the back of the TV?  A great detail that I almost missed as I was trying to figure out how I was going to delicately explain what a Bro was.  I’ll be off on a trip for the next couple of days so I’ll post the answers as soon as I get a chance.  Have a wonderful Wednesday and I’ll see you soon!  😀

CAKNK = KNACK

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE TENNIS PLAYER COULDN’T FIND HIS EQUIPMENT IN THE CLOSET AND WAS —

KAKGARACTMINE = MAKING A RACKET

Good Tuesday morning everyone!  Another day, another puzzle, so let’s see what David and Jeff served us up today.  All of the clue words came instantly this morning without any trouble at all.  Moving on to the cartoon, as soon as I saw “tennis player” in the sentence, RACKET came to mind leaving 7-letters to decipher.  Determined to make the solve without writing anything down, I figured A would be the single letter leaving MAKING to finish the puzzle and complete the pun.  Upon checking my answers, the letter layout was cryptic and gave nothing away.  Overall a very simple puzzle with a funny cartoon — you can’t go wrong with that combo!  Sometimes it’s best to keep it short and sweet so I’ll see you tomorrow.  😀

CINME = MINCE

UKAQC = QUACK

KOIREO = ROOKIE

ARUBUE = BUREAU

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE BABY DELIVERED AT 30,000 FEET WAS —

INAROEBR = AIRBORNE

Good Monday morning my friends and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun!  The first three clue words came quickly, but BUREAU had me stumped for a bit.  Determined to solve it without pen and paper, I decided to make my morning coffee and revisit the puzzle with a fresh set of eyes.  After pouring a freshly brewed cup of black coffee into my beloved Jumble mug, I sat down and had that eureka moment where the answer came into view instantly.  It always amazes me how that little trick works and I regained my momentum and started the final solve.

The setting for the cartoon is an airplane cabin where a baby appears to have just been delivered.  Mr. Hoyt makes an appearance as well with his head taking up just shy of a quarter of the panel.  The look on his face is difficult to gauge but seems to be a blend of emotions ranging from shock to surprise.  No doubt he probably wishes that he booked that first class ticket instead of economy!  The letter layout for the answer was well jumbled and kept the solution very cryptic.  Seeing BORN and AIR allowed me to blend the two words together for the final solution.  Have a wonderful Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow!  🙂

DAGUY = GAUDY

RUCTO = COURT

DISKES = KISSED

TROYHE = THEORY

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE STRUGGLING YOUNG GOLFER WANTED TO QUIT, BUT HER COACH RECOMMENDED SHE —

AUYCRTSSETHEO = STAY THE COURSE

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!  No trouble with the clue words today as they all came to me at first glance.  GAUDY barely edged out THEORY as my pick for the most difficult word to decipher because you just don’t see it written or used too often.  

Moving along to the cartoon, we find ourselves out on the golf course where a coversation is occurring between a young player and her instructor.  She is clearly upset and you can almost feel her pain just by looking at the way Jeff drew her eyes.  Her coach offers encouraging words as she hands him her scorecard but her own self doubt may have already gotten the better of her.  The solve for the surprise answer was effortless and came instantly upon reading the dialogue and sentence.  If you found yourself having trouble, THE was spelled out in order within the anagram and would have been a great starting point.

Looking at the detail of the cartoon, the coach has an image on his hat that looks like a golf ball as well as some lettering on his shirt.  Zooming in on the shirt, H.S.E. is visible in capital letters with LADY and RO—- underneath.  I’m not sure of the meaning but I’ve added the photo below.  If you have a guess or a definitive answer, be sure to let me know in the comments section.  Have a wonderful Friday and I’ll see you tomorrow!  🙂

There you go…sums it right up for me! Spiders drive ME up the wall..I mean except for the fact that you can get in a full weeks worth of cardio just walking into a web, what is there to say about spiders? “ITSY BITSY”? Puh-lease…I’ll see you three “Wheels On The Bus”, THREAD water with a “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”,  and raise you a “SPINNING Top”. .Anything but that spider! Today’s words: I’m not sure if Wicket is new, but it DREW me right in! All four were easy, breezy…but the cartoon made me queasy! Nothing like a little arachnid pic first thing in the morning to get the COBWEBS out of your head, and set your stomach SPINNING. Am I right? …(Uh, hold the pancakes). So, we see little spiders sitting “On the Web..” SILK your teeth right in…WEAVE got our solve..The eye candy? (I can’t even think about food..) I’ll go with that little honey pot pencil holder…
OK,  That’s a WRAP.

Enjoy! 🕷🕷🙋🏻

YUJIC = JUICY

NEPDU = UPEND

BEBOWL = WOBBLE

TAGRYE = GYRATE

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE BARBER WHO CUT THE BEATLES HAIR IN 1963 DID A —

JUPNOBBGA = BANG-UP JOB

Happy Wednesday morning everyone!  We’re at the middle of the week and the puzzles are getting progressively harder, so let’s break this one down and see what we had today.  UPEND didn’t come at first glance, but as soon as I formed UP, the rest fell right into place.  As I wrote it down, I thought for sure it was going to be the stumper of the day.  WOBBLE was a piece of cake and then I ran into a major roadblock with GYRATE.  For the first couple of minutes I tried to figure it out by staring it and tried making different letter combinations in my head but nothing seemed to work.  As my frustration grew, I decided that it was time to blow the dust off my trusty notepad and put it to good use.  On my twelfth attempt of self-jumbling the letters, I had formed RATEGY and that’s when I finally saw the solution.  I don’t recall having this much trouble with a single word in such a long time and it was great to finally feel a challenge once again.  Moving along to the cartoon, Jeff brought us into a barbershop where the Beatle’s are getting a trim.  The answer came to mind immediately and I wrote out the letters just to check myself.  Sure enough it all matched up and another wonderful puzzle was complete.  I hope you had an easier time than I did and I’ll see you tomorrow.  😀
