Clue/Question:  What the lumberjacks enjoyed when they went rafting.

Answer:  CHOPPY WATER

(Very nice.  Some good clue words, excellent scrambling of the answer letters, good cartoon, and a pun!  What more could you ask for?  Not that I asked for it, but I did receive an appropriate Christmas present the other day.  My son and his girlfriend gave me the “Jumble Genius” puzzle book.  It’s a collection of some of the old Jumbles, by Henri Arnold, Bob Lee and Mike Argiron.  My daughter has done the first two – for me.  Seeing these makes me long for the old artwork.  I guess we should all just be thankful that the mantle was picked up.  Do good, friends.)   — YUR

A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.”   — Italo Calvino

(Having it – the newspaper – in my hands makes a big difference to this old dog!  It’s not snowing anymore, and the wind has also died down.  Now, all we need is a few days above freezing with some bright sunshine, and we’ll be back to where we should be!  Be good, do good, friends.)   — YUR
