Everyone goes astray, but the least imprudent are they who repent the soonest.”   —   Voltaire

(Attaboy, Frankie!  Didn’t “The Duke” – AKA John Wayne – say:  Never repent.  It’s a sign of weakness . . . or, something like that?)   —   😉   YUR

PS.  I just felt like inserting The Duke today!     YUR

Visual Description:  A runner passing “Little boxes made of ticky tacky”.

MHRIET  =  HERMIT,  ROCUSR  =  CURSOR,  MPGYUR  =  GRUMPY,  SILVHA  =  LAVISH,  KNYISN  =  SKINNY,  ENGRED  =  GENDER   —   Giving us:  HTCROUAISKNGDE

Clue/Question:  The new development appealed to the Olympic runner because it was . . .

Answer:  TRACKED  HOUSING

(Pretty good Sunday Jumble!  Some great clue words, especially “cursor” and “lavish”.  I’m sure ralis95 will be adding to the database!  The scrambling was great across the board.  No gimmes!  Having the ED on the end of “TRACKED” kind of threw me, as I’ve always just heard it referred to as TRACK HOUSING.  But maybe it’s a regional thing . . . one way or t’other!  Either way, it wasn’t much of a stretch getting it.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  “Little Boxes” is a song, originally written and performed by Malvina Reynolds.  (<<<Read all about her!)  It has been covered by scores of artists.  Yer Uncle first heard it from his Mom, who never did – to this day – like “cookie cutter” housing.     YUR
