Answer:  (I told you, I’m no genius!)

The answer is:  REPEAT BUSINESS, as per:  Liz M, HH, jenn, helper, and someone who came up as anonymous . . . and Joe!  Nice going, people!  I think I have a semantic thing with the word “repeat” when it comes to television.  I use it more in the context of a show’s current season, late spring and summer run.  But, for old shows that are in syndication, I just think of the word rerun, or in syndication.  But, that’s probably just me.  I didn’t even have a chance to try the ralis95 method.  Thanks for all the help!   —   YUR

(I’m going to continue to work on this, but I think it’s fair to inform you that I am – at least temporarily – stumped on this one.  I got all of the clue words immediately, but I’m drawing a blank on the answer.  I’m going to attribute a good portion of this to Hoyt’s superior answer letter layout, because I’m looking at it and coming up with nothing.  I thought the first word might be SERIES, SUPERB, or PARENT, but I can’t do anything with the leftovers.  Maybe, I’ll take a shot using the ralis95 method of breaking down the answer letters, and get back to you.  Until then, if anyone wants to submit the answer, feel free!  Until we meet again, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    the answer is  REPEAT BUSINESS     by the way–thanks for your advise on getting  an online subscription  to a newspaper that carries the sunday jumble. since I’m out on the road all the time trucking,  it really comes in handy.

    Joe,

    95??? That is amazing! The only way I want to live that long is if I can be as with it as you are. God bless you, sir. — YUR

    Onebsrebel,

    Gotta love your handle, brother! — YUR

    Patrick Davis,

    Glad I could be of some help. I’ll have to show your comment to my kids. They barely pay lip service to my advise. — YUR

    OK, I didn’t get the answer, HOWEVER, that is only because I clicked on a comment not realizing I was going to see the answer! And then I forgot what the answer was and when I sat down to finish up Sunday’s puzzler, the answer came far too fast, so I figure my subconscious jumped right in and helped me out. I think I need to start eating Wheaties! 🙂 LL
