Ghoul morning everyone, and Happy Halloween! The wait is over and we finally have our Halloween themed Jumble puzzle for 2017. The clue words were no trouble at all, with FRUGAL being the only anagram needing a second look.
Moving along to the cartoon, Jeff gave us a spooktacular drawing of a mom and children dressed in Halloween costumes. Mom really stole the show with her Bride of Frankenstein costume and bat earrings. The two children were dressed for the occasion with the one on the left as the grim reaper and the one on the right as a zombie. If you have any kids dressed in these costumes tonight, I hope you remember today’s cartoon and it gives you a big smile.
It may be hard to see in the newspaper version, but in moms candy bowl was what looks like Jumble candy! All we see is the “BLE” of the wrapper and it was a very well placed detail. I wonder what flavor it is???
The solution to the puzzle required me to write out the clue letters, and what a frightfully fun pun it was once solved. Very clever, David! I hope everyone has a very Happy Halloween and I’ll see you tomorrow!
