WHEN ASKED WHAT INSPIRED HIM TO WRITE A LENGTHY BOOK, J.R.R TOLKIEN SAID – – –
ANLGOOYSTRSIT = IT’S A LONG STORY
Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday! The clue words weren’t overly difficult and I managed to get through them quickly and without any trouble whatsoever. I don’t recall GOOEY being used in the past so I’ll take a chance and guess that it was the most difficult anagram for today. Moving forward to the cartoon, we arrive at what I first thought was the Oval Office with a former president. Reading the dialogue and sentence, I quickly discovered that it was the office of high-fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien and he’s being asked a question about his book “The Lord of the Rings”. Jeff took the creative liberty to add some artistic flair to his piece by including a large dragon on the front of the desk as well as a Jumble puzzle with a cartoon featuring the Eye of Sauron. The solution to this puzzle came instantly without the need of the clue letters. Let me know if you had any luck solving Mr. Tolkien’s Jumble! Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow.
