Good morning everyone and happy Thursday! CROAK gave me some trouble today, as have most of the 5-letter words this week. The other three Jumbles were all immediately visible and I moved along to the cartoon.
At first glance we see two men in a field and they appear to be building something out of rocks. By reading the dialogue and sentence we learn that the structure is a wall, but they’re having a difficult time with the placement of the stones. Writing out the clue letters and seeing CO together was all I needed to get rolling. ROCK came instantly into view leaving START to be found in a flash. All that was left was the Y which fit neatly behind ROCK for the finish. The surprise answer made this Jumble an instant clastic for me!
I hope everyone has a gneiss day, and I’ll see you tomorrow! 😉
