Visual Description:  Jeff Knurek’s favorite fantasy.

ROBWRO  =  BORROW,  EDSNDU  =  SUDDEN,  UTAZRQ  =  QUARTZ,  SEIROR  =  ROSIER,  USMTTO  =  UTMOST,  MANTUU  =  AUTUMN   —   Giving us:  OWDENARIETTTN

Clue/Question:  When the Jumble artist took his work to the beach, he did this.

Answer:  DREW ATTENTION

(Because hot babes really dig cartoonists!  LOL!  Actually, a lot of artists do very well with the ladies.  So, who knows?  I like the jealous wife, giving Jeff the evil eye.  Nice touch.  I didn’t have too much trouble with any of the clue words, today.  I figured “rosier” and “utmost” probably gave most people the most trouble.  For some reason I first had SUMMIT instead of “utmost”.  I think I was taken in a little by the double letters in “borrow” and “sudden”, and just made a bad assumption.  I only caught myself when I went to do the answer, and I said: what’s this U doing here?  It all worked out.  Classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  Great jumbling all around.  Nice Sunday puzzle.  Enjoy the day!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Language, as well as the faculty of speech, was the immediate gift of God.”   —   Daniel Webster

(Without getting into the whole gift of God argument, I definitely have to take issue with the word “immediate”.  Language, and to a slightly lesser extent speech, are an ongoing evolutionary phenomena.  Peace.)   —   YUR
