TO HIDE THE SORENESS IN HER RIGHT HAND, THE PIANIST PLAYED IT – – –
E KL WY O = LOW-KEY
Happy Monday, Jumble friends. Did you spot anything out of the ordinary in today’s clue words? David composed his surname in the middle of the third one! Now how’s that to get our week of puzzle solving off to a great start?!
All of our words may have been repeats, but there were two new anagrams to play with. Both DUEFG and RHOYTW made their way into gameplay while KTLEN and KORMES return for an encore. None of them gave me any treble and I found myself at the cartoon in no time flat!
The setting for our panel appears to be a night club of sorts. We see three women enjoying some drinks while the pianist prepares to play some tunes. The dialogue and sentence clue us in to the fact that she’s unfortunately injured her right hand and we can see the bandage wrapped appendage down by her side.
My favorite detail had to be the ultra-glossy finish of the “Jumble” piano. If you look closely at the base of the martini glass, Jeff added a few lines underneath the circular foot to show how shiny the surface is. The oversized tip glass was also a nice touch, and it’s half-filled with bills but they don’t have any denomination on them.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 6-letters that just couldn’t hide the solution. The EK at the beginning brought KEY into view, leaving LOW to be easily found in the remaining letters. Have a merry Monday, and I’ll see you right bach here tomorrow!
