Happy Monday, Jumble players! Today’s puzzle was barely a challenge, but it did offer up a brand new clue word in COFFEE. I could have sworn that we’ve seen it before but maybe it’s just one of those words that’s common enough to look like it’s been used in the past. WLATLE was the only anagram that wasn’t immediately visible which made it my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. If you’re a regular player of the game you probably remember that we saw it just over two weeks ago where it was scrambled as WELTLA on 1/13/19. Our oldest word ended up being LATCH and was last in gameplay on 4/25/18 where it was jumbled as CALTH.
The setting for today’s cartoon is a beautiful outdoor scene featuring a Jeep parked somewhere on an off-road trail. The driver is nowhere to be found so we can only assume that he or she is off exploring the great outdoors on this sunshine filled day. In his or her absence, we see a conversation occurring between the tires on the vehicle with one of them feeling left out.
The Jeep that we see in the panel took up the majority of the space in the frame leaving little room for extra details. Jeff managed to squeeze in a couple of hills in the background that are lined with 12 trees. There are also tufts of grass or bits of bushes visible along with two clouds in the sky. Turning my attention to the vehicle, there was something written in the center of the steering wheel that caught my eye. It appears to read “900” which made me think that it’s the model series of the Jeep. Upon closer inspection, it looks like it might also read “Jeff” in cursive but I’m not really sure.
The final solution was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. The layout was cryptic, but the conversation between the tires made this one an instant solve. Have a magnificent Monday and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow for more Jumble fun!
