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

    So true regarding the brevity of Spring and Fall, hands-down the best seasons! It seems the minute I have the first allergy sneezles of Spring and Fall, it’s immediately the dreaded meltingly humid summer, or the never-ending winter. Yippee! =) On a more positive note, I’m finallyyy at the point where every once in awhile, I realize I’ve had a jumble word in a past puzzle- too exciting!
