FOR THE HAPPY COUPLE, BEING IN LOVE AND TAKING WALKS TOGETHER – – –
HAH NO DD GAN = GO HAND IN HAND
Happy Tuesday everyone! Love is a word that’s easy to say, but hard to describe. We all know it when we feel it though. The warm and fuzzy sensation you get when you’re with your partner, a sense of contentment and security, and a joy in your heart that makes you feel whole and complete. Before my wife and I tied the knot, our Pastor required us to take a marriage course to ensure we were ready for it. He described love as being like a piggy bank — you make positive deposits as often as you can, but have to be careful not to make too many withdrawals. Very sage advice!
All of today’s clue words were familiar old friends. Two of the scrambles were new, but we’ve definitely seen DLIFED and GLANOL before. None of them caused my heart to flutter. GLANOL did require a couple of extra blinks to come into view so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest anagram.
Touching cartoon of Jumble Jeff and his wife Kathy taking a walk in a park. We last saw Kathy in a Jumble cartoon on 8/31, so some of you probably recognized her from before. The way Jeff lovingly drew himself staring deep into her eyes is what really touched me. Kathy was lost in his eyes too and it gave me the feeling that their special moment would go on forever. Jeff mentioned in his dialogue that they’ve been together 25 years, so is today their Silver Anniversary??? The logo on their shirts brought to mind Claddagh rings — with the heart representing true love, the crown for loyalty and them both holding hands representing their eternal friendship.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. With so many repeating letters, HAND was no trouble to spot. GO was right there for the finish and the solve was complete. Happy 25th to Jeff and Kathy if today is your special day. May your journey of love continue to be a great one! On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day. //Mike
