Answer:  NEW WEIGH OF LIFE

(I thought this was fairly challenging!  No new clue words, but some pretty neat jumbling.  My two favorites were “figure” and “acidic”.  The answer letter layout was one of Hoyt’s best!  A true masterpiece of jumbling artistry!  And, the cartoon set the tone perfectly, without resorting to any gimmicky bonus clues.  You folks who don’t get a Sunday Jumble in your paper really missed out on a great puzzle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The newspaper I read had a different version of the Sunday jumble, which gave me quite a hard time. I was hoping you would have a comment on it.

    Brian,

    Your newspaper might carry a re-run of an earlier Sunday Jumble. I’ll take a look at the link. — YUR

    Brian,

    That’s a Classic Jumble! Not even a Sunday Jumble. The four words were: BEFOG, LAPEL, VALUED and PARDON. The circled letters are: BFLPLAUEPAN I didn’t write down the Clue/Question, but the Answer was: UNFLAPPABLE. I think the phrasing of the clue/question was a little strange for the answer, but I was able to get it anyway. That’s all I got, bud! — YUR

    I had never actually heard of the word BEFOG and that is the one that tripped me up.

    Brian,

    When in doubt, check it out! That’s why the Good Lord gave us Google! (I’m assuming you had a few combinations written out.) — YUR
