Answer:  BE HISTORY

(I thought there’d be more people searching for today’s answer.  I thought it was pretty tough!  No new clue words, but every jumble was new, to me.  I really liked  the one for “shroud”.  That was a prominent word in a recent Cryptoquote!  Maybe Hoyt comes here for a little inspiration, from time to time.  He really likes using the word “abrupt” as a clue word, doesn’t he?  The answer letter layout was super!  I thought the answer was going to be BE something, but it really took me a while to figure out HISTORY.  The funny thing is when I was a kid, I always wanted to be an archaeologist.  And, I’ve always been a big history buff, but I just didn’t put the two together.  Sometimes I’m a little dense.  Fantastic cartoon, though!  Be well and do good, friends.)  —   YUR

    I had a difficult time with shroud and abrupt (maybe because I am still fairly new at this). I try to spend no more than 10-15 minutes on this so if I do not get all the words I can usually get the solution and back into the words easily. Today’s puzzle (11/8/13) was one of the very few times I have figured out all the words before looking at the picture.

    Soon enough, you’ll be solving the whole thing in a minute, or so, McDuck!

    Abrupt is a bugger for sure! Really studied the puzzle for a clue to the answer…no help. But then when I was looking for two letter words in the clue letters, I found ‘be’…and the rest was…well….wait for it …. history!!!! 🙂 LL
