(Fun!  The clue words were pretty easy, and should be very familiar to veterans, as none were *new*.  They were jumbled nicely!  The answer letter layout was great, and it’s a nice long, ten-letter answer.  Cute cartoon, too.  Borden Dairy Products used to be a pretty big company.  Borden’s Ice Cream, Borden’s Condensed Milk, and Elmer’s Glue, etc..  Elsie and Elmer were advertising icons.  I guess they still are, but I think the original company was taken over by a big conglomeration in the 1990s.  Such is life in corporate America!  And, that ain’t no bull!  Be well, do good and keep thinking, friends.)   —   YUR

    I like when the boys personify animals! Usually the Jumble is funny! Easy Jumble today! As for Elmer’s Glue, I used plenty of that as a kid. It is most certainly much safer than Crazy Glue!

    Hey, and it’s non-toxic! For a kid who was known to eat: paper, pencils, erasers, paste, and occasionally glue, *non-toxic* was a big plus! Extended oral fixation? Billy goat complex? Just dug hearing: “Eewwww!”? All of the above?

    Explains a lot, don’t it?
