Happy Thursday, Jumble geniuses! There are some mighty big changes in store for the young couple that we see in today’s cartoon. I think Fido is going to be the one in for the rudest awakening though. Mom needs to rest as much as she can during the final stages of pregnancy and would be wise to pass off those nesting urges for dad to deal with. When the little ones come along it’ll be sleepless nights, dirty diapers and feeding time nearly around the clock!
All of today’s anagrams were a piece of cake. Two of the anagrams are coming up as new with PUCEO and TURGET having definitely been used before. They solved with little to no effort and it’s a little disappointing because I really crave a challenge near the end of the week. Just watch me eat my words when tomorrow’s game turns into my worst nightmare!
Today’s cartoon was a scene that most of us can identify with in some way or another. The overly cautious dad wonders if he should call in the experts due to his wife’s tiredness, but she knows her body and maintains a level head. She explains that the Doctor informed her that she’d grow increasingly tired during the final stages of pregnancy and there’s no need for him to grab his hospital bag just yet.
The picture frames ended up being my favorite detail in the panel. The one on the left is a wedding photo and it’s a little more ornate than the one of their fur-baby on the right. The woman is dressed in a beautiful gown and she has her bouquet of flowers down to her right side. The man is wearing a TUXEDO and has a smile from ear to ear.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11-letters and is the same amount as yesterday’s puzzle. The layout was fantastic with David spelling out WE, COP and (almost) TEXTED. The word “twins” in the cartoon sentence allowed me to find TWO, and EXPECTED was easily deciphered from the remaining letters. Even though the puzzle was a breeze to solve, the creative answer that David delivered made it all worthwhile. Have a spectacular Thursday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
