(This was a tough one for me!  No new clue words, but I struggled mightily with “biopsy”.  A lot less with “goalie”, but I thought it and “tomato” and “undone” were all jumbled really well.  The answer letter layout was superb!  I struggled getting the answer.  My problem stemmed from the fact that I believed that the second word was moment, instead of memory.  Obviously I couldn’t do anything – legitimate – with GLARISY.  The closest I could get with those letters was SAYGIRL.  Clearly, SAYGIRL MOMENT was a little too slangy to be a legitimate answer.  Although, who knows how Jeff talks to the Missus???  Finally, I decided I needed to take a re-look at the second word, and I came up with memory, and then lasting fell into place.  Great cartoon, too.  I’d like to think this was based on true events, but I don’t know.  I haven’t heard from Jeff in a while.  Either way, nice job, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I got tripped up on thinking the second word was “moment” too! I finally came to your spoiler and saw your visual description emphasizing “first”. That did it for me.

    We had the EXACT same issues- ‘biopsy’ was the toughest of the bunch, had ‘moment’ as the last word in the answer…and then my brain exploded trying to make any kind of real word out of ‘glarisy’ !! ..off to super glue it all back together…

    No, the Mrs. Hasn’t run a marathon, yet. She says it’s on her bucket list. I don’t think she’d survive training. I put the both of us in the puzzle today because it is our wedding anniversary. 17 years. Wow! Time flies.

    Congratulations, to you and your lovely wife, Jeff! Maybe, some day, for that marathon. 🙂 YUR

    Great puzzle, had to really work for the answer. Congratulations on the anniversary! 17 years — quite the milestone Mr. Jeff. Undone got me for a bit.

    So glad I found this — we were on vacation, got hung up on “moment” and never saw the answer! We were hyperforcused on all the cameras clicking in the illustration & were convinced it was a variant on Kodak moment!

    I’m sure that was the direction my mind was going too, Deb. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you had a swell vacation! — YUR
