(Clever!  Some people with long faces are said to have horse faces.  And when you’re sad, sometimes someone will say to you:  Why the long face?  No new clue words today, but they were all jumbled very well.  I had a little difficulty in getting “peanut”.  The answer letter layout was really great.  It took me a few minutes to figure out the answer!  When I got it I had an even better appreciation for Jeff’s cartoon.  I shoveled snow most of the day.  It was very deep and very heavy today, mainly because of the freezing rain that fell after the snow.  Another snow storm is coming Friday!  I can’t wait!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Gees, no wonder I didn’t get the answer. Instead of peanut I put untape.

    I had UNTAPE also. It took me about 20 minutes to get PEANUT. I tried all kinds of combinations. I almost threw down the pen on that one, YUR. Ha! LONG FACE wasn’t that easy either. I was, however, laughing all throughout working on this puzzle because of the girlfriend horse frolicking happily in the background. That was pretty funny!
