Answer:  TRACK-AND-FIELD EVENT

(One of the longest answers I can ever remember!  Funny/different kind of pun.  There is a new clue word in this puzzle, in “eureka”!  All the jumbling was very good too.  The answer letter layout was remarkable.  I’m sure that more than a few of you had some difficulty in solving this one.  The cartoon and the driver’s comments set up the gag very nicely.  Sorry about the delay, folks.  It was a busy long weekend.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Yep.  That’s a groaner, alright.  People in Argentina are cringing!  No new clue words today.   The jumbling was great though.  The jumbles of both “tavern” and “trendy” were new to me.  The answer letter layout was real spiffy.  Nothing given away there.  The cartoon looks like a scene right out of Dancing With The Stars.  Congrats to Maks and Meryl on winning!  The inspiration award goes to Amy Purdy!  She accomplished more on artificial legs than I ever could on my natural legs.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.”   —   Carl Rogers

(I fear this means I’m getting less educated as I get older, because a lot of the “change” is just getting so hard to handle.  I hope that they give points for trying!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
