Answer:  YES, INNDEED

(Another great Jumble!  All the clue words were jumbled so well.  I even had to back into “cozier”.  And, wouldn’t you know it?  It’s a new clue word!  Our pal, ralis95, is going to have to update his clue word database.  The answer letter layout was another thing of beauty.  Nothing given away there.  The cartoon has a great Bob Newhart and Mary Fran.  It also has the bonus clue, of the realtor holding the deed.  Very clever drawing and a very clever pun.  Newhart was a great series, but not exactly original.  I always liken it to a more sophisticated Green AcresNewhart was definitely the better show though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PTFE is often used to coat non-stick frying pans as it is hydrophobic and possesses fairly high heat resistance. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Doubts, Fears Anxiety

(When you don’t have confidence of self, it seems to be the rarest of all commodities.  You just can’t buy it.  You can’t barter for it either.  It also isn’t something you can manufacture out of whole cloth.  It seems to be elemental.  I believe that it’s something we’re all born with, but confidence is a little like frying pans.  Some of us are born with the non-stick coating, that allows us to blithely slough off the daily crud that we all face.  The rest of us seem to lack that coating, and every sticky thing in life seems to pile up on us, in a seemingly hopeless baked on mess.  It’s still possible that we might shine, but getting through all the layers of doubt is a daunting and formidable task.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
