(Surprisingly, this is the first R.L.S. quotation, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I thought that it was quite easy to solve, but I really like the message.  As with ideas, the planting is the important thing.  Then, you just have to let nature take it’s course.  As long as you put them out there, people will pick up on them.  That’s all you should really hope for.  Peace, my friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy Birthday to Nida (Leonida)!  Her birthday coincides with the Leonids Meteor Shower, which is usually at it’s peak on this day.  Unfortunately, I’m hearing that visibility is not going to be optimum this year.  Too bad.  I love a good meteor shower.      YUR

(Another great character driven Jumble!  Someone’s gotta tell this guy he’s on a friggin’ path!  How lost could he be?  Killer rabbits?  Sounds like he might be a Monty Python fan!  I’ll include a relevant link.  I’ve got mixed feelings about the scrambling of “douse”.  I mean, it’s not an everyday word, or anything.  I actually held off on committing to that word until I got the other three, but still . . .  Reminds me a little of that email that says:  as long as the first letter and the last letter are in the proper place your brain can read the word, regardless of how the inner letters are mixed up.  I really liked “social” and “around” though.  And, the answer letter layout was alright.  It’s a short answer, but it might have been a little better if the first two words had been switched.  This Jumble coincides with a great song the wife and I were listening to on the way to the park and ride.  It’s been out for a few months now, but it sounds like something out of the ’60s!  A little Smoky Robinson, a little Brenton Wood, and it’s called The Walk, by a cat named Mayer Hawthorne.  It’s great.  Give it a listen.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
