Answer:  FAMILY TIES

(More of a classic pun, I guess.  But, a little on the boring and predictable side.  No new clue words today, but there were some new jumblings for me.  I had a little trouble getting both “stereo” and “fibula”.   I was a little lazy and backed into both of them.  Luckily the answer was pretty obvious.  But, the answer letter layout was very good.  The cartoon and dialog tells the whole story.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Why do I always struggle with words that start and end with vowels! Grrrr! I backed into STEREO, also. I have struggled with VIDEO before. I should know better. FIBULA I backed into and cheated on. With all the political drama going on in Jersey, my mind is not as it should be! 🙂
