Answer:  COST OF LIVING

(Talk about your ironies!  What’s that old joke about cemeteries?  Something about:  everybody’s dying to get in!  Yeah, that old gag.  No new clue words today, but the jumbling was fine.  I really liked the jumbling of “orbit”!  Superb job on the answer letter layout!  No giveaways.  Cool cartoon!  Hey!  Happy first day of Spring, everybody!  This winter has been too long.  I’m just hoping we have a few weeks of real spring-like weather, before the blistering heat and humidity take over.  It seems like both spring and fall have become abbreviated, while summers and winters seem to drag out.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

In the Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”   —   Margaret Atwood

(Dirt is a great smell!  Most of us have become too citified to get our hands dirty, and that’s a crying shame.  Okay.  You don’t actually have to get your hands dirty.  You can wear gloves!  We all should pledge to plant something this spring.  It doesn’t have to be a tree, or an entire vegetable garden, although that would be nice.  Just plant some annuals, or some tulip or daffodil bulbs.  Anything where you put a spade, or trowel, into the earth, so you can get that great smell!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
