Answer:  APPARENT

(Loved it.  None of the clue words were new today, but they were all jumbled beautifully!  All of the jumblings were new, from my perspective.  I even had to back into “actual”.  Not that I took the time to write out various combinations, because I wasn’t feeling that patient.  It’s ironic though, because I – actually – use the word so often.  Seeing the word “trump” is making me think of The Donald, because he has been mentioned as a possible buyer, or part of a group, that might purchase the Buffalo Bills, from the estate of Ralph Wilson.  This, of course, makes me think of our old friend WIMPY, who we haven’t heard from in a while.  I hope all is well with him.  The answer letter layout was great too.  If you didn’t figure out the answer from the cartoon’s set up you might have had a hard time just using the letters as they played out.   Nice cartoon.  The NFL draft starts next Thursday!  I’m looking for my Bills to draft one of the three top Offensive Tackles.  If none of them are available I hope they jump to the other side of the field and draft Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, a super Safety out of Alabama.  Take care of those two positions and the rest is all gravy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Good fortune?  Don’t most of us realize that we’re going to miss someone before they’re actually gone?  Usually it’s a matter of liking/loving them, and/or respecting them.  You’re not likely to miss someone you don’t like or respect.  But, often times you just don’t realize what you had until it’s gone.  That secure feeling of belonging diminishes when you lose a parent, or other close elder relative.  You’ve lost a source of history and wisdom . . . and just belonging.  As social creatures, we have a need to feel that we belong.  Realize, and appreciate, what you belong to, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR
