Answer: “KITTEN“ CABOODLE
(Very cute pun, for a very cute Jumble! We actually had a new clue word today! Unless, it came after my 12/31/13 hard copy of the ralis95 clue word database, “closed” has not been used before. The jumbling of it also gave me the most difficulty, which is unusual because first words are pretty much gimmes. I also liked the jumblings of “bleach”, “oriole” and “decent”. “Kettle” and “exodus” were relatively easy, for me. The answer letter layout was beautifully jumbled. You really had to be familiar with the idiom to get the answer today. Fun cartoon. The kittens look a little big for newborns. The poor momma kitty looks completely worn out. Enjoy your Easter Sunday and Passover Sunday! Don’t forget that Tuesday is Earth Day. We’ve really let things go, for too long, and we need to do our best to protect and preserve/restore it. If not for ourselves, then for our children and our children’s children. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
