Jumble Answers for 08/11/2017

TYHEM = THYME

TAIRO = RATIO

TRAEAK = KARATE

ARUBUE = BUREAU

CARTOON ANSWER:

AFTER SCUBA DIVING FOR HOURS, THEY WERE READY TO —

THERATKAEBREA = TAKE A BREATHER

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!  KARATE and BUREAU are my choices for the most difficult words today.  KARATE came into view after staring at it for a few seconds, and BUREAU took 3 self-jumbles to figure out.  Moving on to the cartoon, we encounter two divers in a boat who appear tired and exhausted.  After reading the dialogue and sentence, we discover that they’ve been diving for quite a long time today and that they need some rest.  Writing out the clue letters, A was a given as the single letter.  Looking at the last four letters of the anagram allowed me to find BREATH faster than expected causing the rest of the solution to fall neatly into place.  I hope everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow!

  1. The BUREAU drawer full of THYME was kicked to pieces by the KARATE novice who was unaware of the RATIO of strength of feet to stationary object.
    An unusual situation for me today. I had the solution to the puzzle before I unscrambled all the clue words–so worked backwards to get BUREAU. Two Us stumped me. But it was challenging today and I liked that! 🤔 👍

  2. 🎶”Every BREATHE you take, every move you make, every bond you break, every step you take…I’ll be watching you..”🎶 Oh BUOY! This THYME we got SCUBA DIVING! I don’t quite SEA it, I’ve never TIDE it, but why KNOT? WATER we have to lose? Today’s words weren’t all an immediate SNAP. PERhaps because I’m not SHORE we’ve SEAn KARATE before. If we did, we’re being SHOALed a whole new scramble. I blinked. And I said to my CHUM Ray, “Before you GOBY with your friends, RA,TIO this word”? He did know, and I TANKed him for his KELP. He’s very good that way, he’s not a selfFISH man. Our cartoon: This was DEPTH-FINitely a gem! Jeff shows us a couple looking out of BREATH. (She’s blond, in a purple suit, by the way…What AIR the CODs of that)! And, then the dialogue gave it PORPOISE. Realizing they might be in a little OVER their heads, they agree to take the oppurTUNAty to rest. “Take a break”. Put them together, and you can be SHORE of your SHELLf, you got the solve…”Take a Breather”. The Jumble BUOYS may have tried to play KOI with us, but it didn’t DIVE us insane! TANKS again, Guys, it was absoFLUKEly KRILLiant! Eye candy? Right below the boat, are three tiny little fishes. I so got ONBOARD with that! So, SCUBA DIVING…It’s becoming MORAY and MORAY popular these days. “Come out of your SHELL”, “Don’t get TIDE down”…may be SALMON the things you AIR from friends. But ASCENTially, what’s ones fantaSEA may KNOT be another’s. It’s a personal choice, and the FINal deSEAsion must be aBOAT you. You can always BUREAU someone’s equipment, and try it out. It may go SWIMmingly…Just don’t fEEL you have to give in to the PIER PRESSURE…Don’t MASK your fear…
    It’s SHRIMPle…SCUBA DIVING?..Keep your friends close, and your ANEMONES closer.
    Friday! It’ll be a great day…Just WADE and SEA ⛴🙋🏻

  3. JUMBLE FUN

    Jumble, Jumble, oh what fun!
    Words and cartoon ‘til you’re done.

    Some you’ll finish very fast,
    Others seem to last and last.

    Jumble with new fallen snow,
    Or with cactus in a row.

    North or south or east or west,
    Jumble puzzle is the best!

    Once you’re hooked, I’m sure you’ll say,
    “Happy way to start my day!!”

    I read every day,
    What Mike has to say,
    But his skills I never shall reach!

  4. Good morning. Bombed out today real bad. I was stuck on both ends. My young ones were going out for breakfast before going on today’s adventure and I asked them to solve the cartoon. It took them all of fifteen seconds to get the answer. Angela, my son caught a black bass and two porgies. The fluke was too short. It has to be 19″now to keep. There was a tie on the fluke for the money. One was 21 1/2 ” and the other 22 1/4″. But they both weighed the same. My daughterinlaw caught a few sea robins and a skate that went back into the water. Lelia your piece was inspiring. Until tomorrow stay well

    • Hey Paul. We’ve caught bass out there. Never any skates. We’re always sailing there. May I ask, where do you live that you’d go to the Bay to fish? If you’re there again, and looking for good Italian food, go to Maria’s right on Emmons Avenue. Great atmosphere, great service, great food. 🙋🏻

  5. Like many of you, I got the puzzle answer before the clue words. Had to get out paper and pencil to figure out bureau & karate. It was a good challenge today. Have a good Friday everyone.

  6. At first glance the clue letters looked like foreign language to me. Took several minutes for brain fog to leave and let me think clearly. Answer fell into place with no problem. Have a fantastic Friday!🌞
