(Oh, yeah.  That’s a groaner alright.  No new clue words today, but all the jumblings were new to me.  None of them were obvious, but also none of them stumped me in any way.  Seems a shame to break out “enzyme” for just a couple of Es though.  But, it helped make for a great answer letter layout.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon has a lot of great elements.  It looks like a beautiful summery day at the beach, with an amusement park on a pier and the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    For some reason I had a problem with “build”. Guess I was blinded by the sun.

    Joe,

    Sometimes the careful jumbling of a one syllable word – making it appear to be a two syllable word – can trip up the best of us. Thanks for chipping in with the quip! — YUR
