Answer:  BYPASS IT

(Not a gimme!  I had some trouble with “biceps”, and thought I’d be able to back into it.  But, the final solution was nowhere’s near clear, to me, without the B and S!  Coming back to it, I was able to see it, although I kind of questioned whether there was a single “bicep”?  WordPress seems to accept it, so now I’m wondering if “biceps” is a legitimate word, for a Jumble clue word!  Hmm!  Maybe we’ve had this discussion before?  Anyway, I thought it was a great jumble, and eventually I was able to solve it.  Nicely cryptic answer letter layout.  It doesn’t give the answer away.  Very clinical cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  IN STORE FOR THEM

(Let’s hope they don’t hold a sidewalk sale!  Nice pun.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “vecot” before.  “epmtt” is an alpha-jumble!  The answer letter layout was a fantastic jumble!  Very cryptic.  The cartoon is a great parody.  I shopped there today.  I almost always get my vitamins there.  Everybody can use to save a few bucks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

LAND IS THE SECURE GROUND OF HOME, THE SEA IS LIKE LIFE, THE OUTSIDE, THE UNKNOWN.” – STEPHEN GARDINER

(This is our first quote from Stephen Gardiner, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  It’s a great quote.  I would’ve thought it had come from some famous navigator, but no.  Again, many thanks to our good friend, hal, for sending in this misplaced Cryptoquote and Jumble!  Saved me from having to look for them in the library!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Cleveland Indians

Answer:  WON BY WON

(Many thanks to our buddy, hal!  No new clue words for this day.  I don’t remember the jumbles so I can’t tell if any of them were new.  As hal mentioned, it seemed to coincide with the Cleveland Indians tying, or setting, the AL win streak record.  Boy, that was sure something!  My memory of this Jumble are very shaky, so I’ll end my comments here.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
