(Wunderbar!  Fun pun.  Tried and true clue words, jumbled expertly.  The jumbles of “pounce” and “slash” are new, to me.  But, I also liked the jumblings of “erupt” and “rotate”.  The answer letter layout was awesome.  Nothing given away.  And, a great seascape, with the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon, snorkelers, and sea critters.  Reminds me of Boracay, in the Philippines, where I once snorkeled!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
