(Not bad!  No new clue words today, but the jumbling of these four old friends was inventive.  I didn’t struggle with any of them, but I really liked “scour” and “emblem”.  The answer letter layout was just okay.  I think switching “scour” for “stunt”, and “waiter” for “emblem” might have made things a little more challenging.  But, that’s just me.  I must be in one of my moods.  The cartoon, and its dialog, set up the pun perfectly.  I wonder if the corner of Cameron and Argyle actually exists, or if Jeff just pulled those names out of thin air?  That’s about it for today, friends.  Please, be well, and remember to at least try to do good.)   —   YUR

    Cameron and Argyle are the first two streets I lived on. Both are in Southgate Michigan, or Down River as it’s known in those parts. Cameron is also my son’s name. Partly because we liked the name and also because of the street. There you go. The more you know!

    I was thinking about your son, but knew your daughter was Sydney, so I couldn’t process Argyle! Fun facts! — YUR
