Answer:  CUT TO THE CHASE

(Fantastic pun!  You can just see the wheels turning in the burglars head.  By the time this clown is done with his spiel I could be outta here!  Hey, the door is open, the gate is open, and the Barney Fife character doesn’t seem to be exuding confidence.  But, the self-preservationist in the burglar is thinking:  Alright, you got me!  Just shut up already, and put the cuffs on me!

No new clue words today, but some super jumbling all around.  I had trouble getting three of them, and I was really happy to finally get “fiasco”, because I’m not so sure I would have been able to back into it.  It took me longer than usual to come up with the solution with all the letters.  I don’t know if I could have solved it without the A and the C.  The answer letter layout was beautiful.  It made you think the five letter word might be HOUSE, but that would have used up 3 of the 5 vowels!  Then I thought that the second word might have been AS, or the first might have been ACT, but I couldn’t take that anywhere.  I had to stand up and start to walk away before it struck me.  Nice job, Hoyt!  The cartoon was priceless!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    So loved this puzzler! Great one guys. And you covered all bases Unc. so fun.

    Fortunately got all the words without taking forever. But I had circled them in backward order because they look a bit ominous. And they clicked. The answer, not so fast!

    So, am away. No paper, and my IPad pulls up the jumble page in the Washington paper–but the jumble never appears. Can’t get my paper up either (more than likely this is user issues). My hubby said he’d try to send me the jumble. So, may be gone for several days.
