Visual Description:  The Merry Men groovin’ to some tunes!

YADIL  =  DAILY,  NIXEV  =  VIXEN,  KRABEM  =  EMBARK,  RUMAID  =  RADIUM   —   Giving us:  DLENEBARAD

Clue/Question:  To the minstrels Robin Hood was . . .

Answer:  A BAND LEADER

(Good stuff!  For the most part, I think the negative connotations of “vixen” have kind of faded away.  You only see that in works by Shakespeare, and such.  I bet some of you were tripped up by “embark”.  And, maybe “radium”, but I know we’ve seen it before, under a different scrambling.  Good scrambling of the answer letters, and a great cartoon!  Anybody have a problem with the answer?)   — YUR

True friends are those who really know you but love you anyway.”   — Edna Buchanan

(I had an Aunt Edna.  Actually, she was my Great Aunt.  They don’t do “Grand” Aunts, do they?  Anyway, she was my Gramma’s older sister.  Very amusing woman.  She always played kind of ditzy, but she was a lot smarter than she let on.  She made her husband – Uncle Jack – feel like a king!  I’ve seen pictures of her and my Gramma from back in the ’20s.  Real knockouts!)   — YUR
