THE YOUNG GIRL HAD NEVER BEEN ABLE TO READ THE CLOCK UNTIL TODAY. THIS WAS HER – – –
IE SI FM TRT = FIRST TIME
Happy Monday Jumble fans! Hour first puzzle of the week didn’t offer any surprises. Both ends of it were completed in just a few seconds, but it’s Monday so it was sort of expected! All of the clue words were repurposed favorites, with THROAT last seen 23-days ago on 9/18 and FAMILY being our old-timer from Christmas Day of 2018. As for the anagrams, three of them were new, but we’ve seen TISUE six times in the past. Since noon of them stumped me, I’ll venture a guess and choose TTAHRO as the hardest one we faced today.
Cute cartoon of a little girl impressing her parents with the somewhat lost art of reading an analog clock. Mom can be seen checking her smart watch for accuracy while dad’s main concern is not being late for work so he accepts the milestone as fact. Jeff’s gems for today were an open box of SUGAR BOMBS cereal on the table, a stuffed bunny propped up against the box with a heart logo on the shirt, dad’s loose tie and unbuttoned collar and a flower barrette in the little girls hair. The nutrition label on the cereal box was visible but little squiggly lines were used instead of words.
The layout for the final solve was an anagram consisting of nine letters. The wording of the sentence made it a blind solve, and even my non-Jumble playing wife (gasp!) came up with it after I read it aloud to her. A real confidence booster to start the week. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and and enjoy the day. //Mike
