Visual Description:  A joyous delivery of a grandfather clock.

ACTMC  =  MATCH,  VIOME  =  MOVIE,  BEBOMY  =  EMBODY,  OINGID  =  INDIGO   —   Giving us:  MATMOEEODIDG

Clue/Question:  They did this when they delivered the clock.

Answer:  MADE GOOD TIME

(Not bad.  No new clue words today, but all were well jumbled.  I enjoyed seeing “embody”.  It’s a good word.  And, “indigo” is kind of a classic Jumble clue word.  I think that Mr. Hoyt did a fine job with the answer letter layout today.  I immediately figured that MADE and TIME were going to be two of the words, so it didn’t take long to figure out GOOD.  With so many time references in the cartoon I think that most of you diehards had little troubling coming up with the answer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This isn’t a terribly good quotation, and it wasn’t a terribly difficult cryptoquote solve.  But, it was uttered by a fine man, and some days that is enough.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
