Happy Valentine’s Day, Jumble friends! Today’s puzzle showcased a brand new clue word with VIEWED making its way into gameplay. It was also my choice for the most difficult anagram of the day while OOMPH came in at a close second. The anagram used for YIELD has been seen three times in the past which made it no trouble at all. David L. Hoyt was kind enough to leave us a special video message detailing how he chooses the clue words and you can click HERE to take a peek. It’ll also be on the front page later this afternoon for your viewing pleasure. Happy Valentine’s Day, David! You’re the best!
Today’s cartoon was absolutely stunning and it featured two different scenes. The top half is where the main action and dialogue takes place. We see two love-birds atop an arch and the male bird is seen offering a piece of bagel to his sweetheart. The female bird is staring deep into her lovers eyes and informs us that this is the spot where they first met. Below them is a couple of young lovers standing in the middle of the arch and they’re in a loving embrace.
There were quite a few extra details in the panel that made it extra special on this day of love. The bagel offering had a cute little bow to indicate that it’s a special gift. The arch was the most detailed portion of the piece with the emblem on the left containing a left-side profile drawing of Jumble artist Jeff’s face. On the opposite side was a right-side profile view of David Hoyt! Between the the emblems was a woman doing the Jumble while enjoying a cup of coffee. And finally, the couple kissing are dressed for cold temperatures with the man having a hat on and she’s wearing earmuffs.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. The L and V made LOVE pop out at me leaving LOVEY DOVEY an easy find based upon all of the visual clues. I wish all my readers a very happy Valentine’s Day, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
