Answer:  PINED FOR IT

(I loved it!  The Jumble . . . not the tree.  Although, it looks like a mighty fine tree.  You used to be able to get a decent sized tree, or shrub, for a song.  Nowadays, they cost you an entire opera!

No new clue words today, but all the jumblings appear to be new.  I didn’t find any of them terribly difficult, but I decided to feature “profit” and “female”.  The answer letter layout was pretty nifty.  I thought it was jumbled very nicely.  I guess that some of you may have had a tough time solving the answer.  Cool cartoon.  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I’m not especially gifted at these things, alas, but thought it was an unusually easy answer, contrary to your hypothesis. It almost screamed out that it would end with FOR IT, and making the first word a past tense —-ED left four letters.

    You are too hard on yourself, Art. You’re good! Yes, you are! YES, YOU ARE!!! Old timers are probably more in tune with *pining* for something. We got some kids out there, baby! — YUR

    Grand puzzler!!! Female actually caught me. I’ve done some pining in my day!

    So true about cost Unc. Gardening/landscaping in all ways, shapes, and forms is very expensive.
