(Surprisingly, our first Abigail Adams quote since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Abby must be referring to formal education, because I generally learn something new everyday, without even trying.  The young Abigail was one of America’s first hotties.  No disrespect intended.  I actually know one of her descendents, and she is very attractive too.  Goes by the nickname of Wiz!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This one has kind of a classic vibe to it.  Maybe not with this specific question and cartoon, but . . .  I’m sure some of the old Jumble pros know what I’m talking about.  Regardless of originality – which is difficult in these puzzles – I thought the clue words, were jumbled well.  Only “bellow” was notable though.  It’s one of those rare Jumble words that spells out alphabetically!  The answer letter layout was fantastic, too!  Good job on Mr. Hoyt.  And, the cartoon was very inviting, with the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  I’d love to be in the Caribbean right now.  I’m sick and tired of this Polar Vortex nonsense!  Although, today we’re experiencing the equivalent of a tropical heat wave.  It is all the way up to 35° F!  But, that is going to be short lived.  Tomorrow and Wednesday we’re expecting highs of 18° and 19°, with lows of 2° and 4° respectively.  I don’t even want to think about wind chills!  Be well and do good, friends. If you’re cold like me, try to stay warm.)   —   YUR
