Clue/Question:  He didn’t want to change the flat because he didn’t have the – – – 

Answer:  PROPER ATTIRE

(Not a bad pun!  You need the proper attire to change a tire.  All, but the jumble for “expert”, were new to me.  I’m not sure about the clue words.  I’ll check on those later.  The answer letter layout was splendiforous!  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon is pretty spiffy.  Be well and do good, friends.  The spoilers might be a little spotty the next few days.  Nobody hold their breath!)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The outfielders started their own band and played – – -

Answer:  CATCHY SONGS

(I thought this answer was pretty tough to get.  For a couple of minutes, I thought I was going to have to put it up for you guys to bail me out.  It finally dawned on me that the second word had to be “songs”.  With the leftovers, I came up with “catchy”.  Decent pun.  All the jumbling was new to me.  And, we seem to have another new clue word for the ralis95 clue word database, in “gotten”.  Plain old “gotten”!  The answer letter layout sure didn’t give anything away.  It was a super jumble.  The cartoon was rockin’ the house!  Game 6 is going on as I post this!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
