(A tasty Jumble gem!  No new clue words on this day, but both “driver” and “choosy” are newly jumbled, from my vantage point.  From checking the ralis95 clue word database, I see that “choosy” is also one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was splendid, but you can see the word CRUNCH if you look closely.  It would have been a little tougher had they switched “stunt” and “cramp”.  The cartoon was semi reminiscent of that classic episode of I Love Lucy, where Lucy and Ethel get a job on a candy factory assembly line.  Lots of fun.  I wonder how Jeff did at his Brooklyn concert?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Yes, quite an easy puzzle today. No problems for me, and I was thinking the same thing about Lucy and Ethel as I did it. What a classic scene that was! LOL All that chocolate!
