(Ya gotta love a lady who can handle a musket!  Today’s Jumble had a classic feel to it.  Great jumbling of the clue words.  Exemplary answer letter layout.  Straight forward play on words.  And a great representational cartoon.  No bonus clues necessary.  Martin Naydel would be proud of today’s effort!  And, how about using the word “morph”?  Pretty cool.  Originally from the word metamorphose, but someone reasoned the now accepted shortening back in the ’80s, and the computer age loves the word!  Today’s scrambling of “divine”, INVIED, kind of explains why DEVINE would never be a valid Jumble clue word.  The letters can also spell ENVIED, among other words.  That’s all I got today, guys.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

    I loved the puzzle — and ignore what I said yesterday, I’m confused by dates, there has been too much going on. Mama’s procedure was May 7 — it was the week before May 7 that I was referring to as having enjoyed the puzzles without taking days to figure them out. … and this puzzle would have been one of the ones that made me feel like I was no longer the straw man on the WofO! So sorry I got so confused! Geeze!

    I do always enjoy the puzzles — diabolical or not!
