Clue/Question: He wanted to leave, but he didn’t have enough – – -
(No new clue words today, but all the jumbles seemed new to me. I don’t think that any of them were difficult. The answer letter layout was not the toughest either. The cartoon was fun. I actually did the puzzles first thing this morning, but took them to work with me, in the hopes of maybe getting them up a little early. But, I got busy. Worked late. Then realized I left my newspaper at work! I could have re-done them off of my newspaper’s email link, that I get every day, but my first thought was to go to Arkansas Online! Worked for me!

(Dogs LOVE to roll in stink! They can’t help themselves. Farley is one of my all-time favorite comics dog! He’s just a big lovable galoot. For Better or For Worse is my mother’s favorite strip. I think she identifies with Elly. It’s a very wholesome, down to earth strip. No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles seemed new. I struggled to get “cousin”. The answer letter layout was great. Today’s guest Jumbler made for a very good pun. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. — The Cryptoquote may, or may not, appear soon. I posted it using WordPress’ preferred method, and it said that it had been posted. But, when I clicked on their View Post button I got a 404 Error Message. It doesn’t show up in my drafts or posts. It’s out there . . . somewhere . . . in WordPress limbo. Today’s Jumble Spoiler was posted the old fashioned way. — YUR
