THE SUBDIVISION WHERE THEY CHOSE TO BUILD THEIR DREAM HOME HAD – – –
FETSFTLOOOR = LOTS TO OFFER
Happy Wednesday, Jumble geniuses! Our midweek puzzle began with all of our anagrams listed in alphabetical order. They’ve all been used before, but the anagrams themselves were brand new. The first three posed no challenge while the fourth one gave me some slight hesitation. I immediately tried making words using the ING suffix that I noticed in the layout but nothing seemed to work. A quick shuffling of the letters allowed ORIGIN to pop into view so it’s my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. Our oldest word this morning was shift and it was last used on 8/4/17. Our most recent repeat was GLOOMY with a gameplay date of 8/21/18.
Moving along to the cartoon, the first thing that I noticed was that every bit of the available space within the panel was utilized. The cartoon sentence informs us that a couple has come to this office to purchase their dream home and they’re looking at a layout of lots that are currently available for sale. Sitting behind the desk is an older woman who is presumably the sales person for the subdivision. The logo on the front of the desk identifies the name of the subdivision as Sunset City but doesn’t offer any clues as to where they’re located.
The male half can be seen perusing the map for the perfect spot and he seems to be interested in a lot near the golf course. The sales woman is quick to point out that there’s still land available near the pool so perhaps the couple will have talk it over before making a final decision. If I was in their position, I would definitely choose the golf course lot because it’s probably much quieter there during the day. Decisions decisions!!!
The final solve was anagram consisting of 11-letters which is three more than yesterday’s. I noticed FLOOR at the rear of the layout but the remaining letters didn’t make any useable words. Starting over, I remembered that the female in the cartoon stated that there were “so many amenities”. Another reading of the sentence made LOTS TO OFFER click almost immediately which resulted in a very punny finish. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
