(I thought she was growing carrots and tomatoes!  Very punny, guys.  We had no new clue words today, but all of the jumbling seemed to be new.  I had a swing and a miss on “expert” at first.  I wrote down PRETEX, as though it were PRETEXT.  Sometimes when you say a word the ending gets a little muddled.  Like the credit card company commercial that’s promoting “fraud protection”, but the customer is hearing “frog protection”.  The EX that I came up with was getting me nowhere, so I went back to the drawing board.  The cartoon and clue/question gave me the answer, so I guess I had to back into a relatively simple word.  I always get there . . . eventually, but I’m certainly no genius.  The answer letter layout was another top notch jumble.  By itself it gave nothing away.  The cartoon was cool.  It could’ve used a little bunny lurking in the background, but it will do.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I, too, tried to lengthen one, reading CAMERA as MACRAMÉ! (One is almost as outdated as the other.)
    PS. I’m not sure what to say about the “related articles.” You are not *endorsing* or *recommending* them, only saying they are *related.*

    Ah, hal! You always come up with an answer for me! I can’t always read these related articles, at least not in depth, so it’s always been a best effort kind of basis. I just don’t want someone to get too bent out of shape, but then again anything could offend just about anybody, I guess. Thanks for responding. — YUR
