Answer:  TOTAL WRECK

(I guess he’s not in good hands . . . and probably doesn’t have a good neighbor . . . or a friend like Flo.  He probably doesn’t even have a little lizard!  Oh yeah.  This guy is toast.  He better get used to riding the bus!

No new clue words today, but I think all the jumbling may have been.  It took me a couple of minutes to figure out “leeway”, and I really liked “spotty”.  Splendid job on the answer letter layout.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Cool cartoon.  What exactly is it that he hit?  Some kind of concrete median divider?  Yeah.  I guess I’ll go with that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I got the first 3 words and the answer within minutes but “leeway” eluded me for about 20 minutes. For some reason I just couldn’t see it.

    That’s a tribute to David L. Hoyt’s jumbling prowess, Joe. He reads the blog fairly regularly, and I’m sure he’ll smile when he reads your comment. I think our brains have some trouble when a jumble consists of one or two real words. Our brains say: *That’s EYE LAW! It’s kind of silly. It doesn’t make much sense, but it’s not a jumble! It’s two words that I’m very familiar with.* It takes a little more time for our brains to get over that. It’s similar to when a jumble reads out as two syllables, but the unscrambled word is only one syllable. — YUR
