Jumble Answers for 01/09/2019









Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today’s game featured all recycled clue words that didn’t take any time to decipher. They were all used last year with the exception being DRAFT. We last saw it in gameplay on 9/15/16 where it was scrambled as FARDT. Since they all came easily, I’ll leave a poll down below where you can vote for the most difficult anagram of the day.

Jumble artist, Jeff Knurek, decided to keep the courtroom theme going for one more day in his midweek cartoon offering. Looking at the panel, we see three Jumble characters in the frame with a window on the witness stand. The woman on the left can be seen pointing her right hand at the window while stating in her dialogue that the problem with the window is obvious. Since the online version of the puzzle wasn’t available this morning, I had to take a few extra seconds to figure out exactly what the problem was. It finally occurred to me that the glass panels of the window swivel left to right instead of going up and down. Talk about a real pane in the glass!!! The judge has seen enough of the plaintiffs case and immediately rules in their favor. The defendant has a look of defeat in his facial expression as well as in his body language and his dialogue in the form of a question added a touch of comedic relief to the courtroom drama that just unfolded. I guess you could say that he missed his window of opportunity to sway the case in his favor.

The letter layout for the final solution was 11-letters in length which is the same amount of letters as yesterday’s game. Focusing on the anagram for a few seconds allowed me to see “PEN” which made me think of OPEN. With those letters crossed out the rest of the solution immediately came into view for the finish. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!

  1. 🎢 How much is that doggie in the WINDOW? The one with the waggley tail…How much is that doggie in the WINDOW?…I do hope that doggie’s for sale…🎢 “How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?” – Patti Page 1953 https://tinyurl.com/ybeodwcn

    βš– Installation of new windows should not be taken light…
    Measurement is most important, since they have to fit just right.
    A HOUSE, as we all know, needs a SPRUCE up now and then,
    And new windows are expensive, you replace them when you can…
    And with money like a RUNNER, sometimes hard to keep it still,
    You want to know your window’s gonna sit right on the sill…
    So companies that guarantee the best money can buy
    And then install some windows that just leave you high and dry?
    No, you don’t need a shoddy job, allowing a DRAFT through,
    The windows need to function without reaching for some glue!
    So ending up in court after the ifs, the ands, the buts…
    The case? Unlike like your windows should just be OPEN AND SHUT…βš–

    In CASE you missed it, I’ll remind you that we were just in court on Monday. Maybe the Guys just enjoy HANGING out here…Today, finding ourselves in Small FRAMES Court, we see a Judge, the Honorable PAYNE N. SUFFEREN, and two lawyers, a female for the plaintiffs, CELIA FATE, and a male for the defense, MEL PRACTISS. And we see a faulty CASEment window, which opens to the side, ill-fitted and HANGING from its FRAME. Celia has obviously gone to great PANES to prove her CASE…That her clients were FRAMED, and have been HUNG out to dry, no PUN intended, since this window probably left their homes all wet! See Exhibit A. Mel, obviously CROOKED, looks a little unHINGED, and he’s caught off GUARD with his mouth OPEN, when faced with the evidence. I guess he should have SCREENed his clients a little bit more, and DRAFTED a better defense, don’t you think? Yea, Mel has definitely missed this WINDOW of opportunity…I mean let’s face it Folks, this window’s no BARgain…So, it’s pretty CLEAR that Celia saw right through Mel and his SILLy defense… And our Judge has seen enough too…as he calls the CASE exactly what is it…OPEN AND SHUT! Good one, David! I like your SENTENCE!

    Eye candy? Hmm. The panel is pretty TRANSPARENT. I could LATCH on to the tiny little window lock, but no…It looks like Mel may be wearing a Tie BAR, but I’m not sure. His tie could use a STRETCH though, it’s way too short. His HEAR is disheveled. Celia’s in a Green SUIT, Mel’s is Blue. I don’t know, it’s a tough DECISION..Maybe we’ll go with Bye Candy today. You know, SETTLE on what’s NOT seen…Ok, no Gavel, no written DRAFTS, and there’s JUSTICE tiny bit of the Scale showing. Intentional, Jeff? Or just SCALElessness? Yea, I’ll CLOSE with that…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember…Don’t ever sign anything without reading the FINE print first…Get CONTRACT lenses if you have to…βš–πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. To SPRUCE up the HOUSE interior, a RUNNER was laid in the hallway and it helped cut down on a DRAFT which was noticeable there.

    • Good Morning, Chuck. I was hoping you’d DRAFT a sentence this morning. πŸ˜‰ Kudos! πŸ‘πŸ» I like it! I went with two different slants…πŸ™‹πŸ»

      The HOUSE thief, a former RUNNER, was identified by an old DRAFT card found buried under the SPRUCE tree.

      Wanting to SPRUCE up the HOUSE, she decided to replace every carpet RUNNER and every window that caused a DRAFT.

    • Chuck….Telling you that I hoped you’d DRAFT a sentence, OPENed up another angle…
      Β° The first DRAFT of the novel about the RUNNER, was being kept in-HOUSE until they could SPRUCE up the book jacket. πŸ“šπŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Good morning. Will check back later as our new bus to A/C has no electric for the phone. The third word took a little time. Other than that even the cartoon answer was a cinch. Another cute answer. Until later stay well.

  4. Welcome back, Mike! I was glad to read that your bees came through for you.
    Only problem I had today was having to back into SPRUCE. Wishing all a great day.

    • Thanks, Caroline! The honey was absolutely amazing and it was so fun melting the wax off the frames. Thank goodness for YouTube to give me some hints on how to go about it. πŸ™‚

  5. Spruce gave me a momentary pause,reminded me of a Xmas tree,but the other words were a snap,and the final solution was obvious,given the picture of open and closed windows.

  6. Another pause on spruce here though I know we’ve seen it before. However, all in all not to difficult a puzzle for a Wednesday. Happy day to you all.

  7. Hi all – No problem with the answer or words, except that I started to rearrange the letters in the third word and went β€œHey, this isn’t SPRUCE again is it?” Last time it was here, I wrote about failing on it the last three times, but I finally recognized it!

    Good comments with the Frames, and the windows of opportunity!
    I have to go run errands, so I’ll just wish you all a great day!

    • Hey G. TREE? Would you believe we’re seeing SPRUCE for the 8th time today? And being here for 7 of them, you’ve had mixed oPINEions! πŸ˜‰ Last time it appeared, in October, yep, you scored…Before that you were hit and miss..some yes, some no…I guess you’re not totally EVER GREEN about it! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the Shout Out, G, and hope you have a good one! βš–πŸ™‹πŸ»
