(I guess the majority of the articles sold at Victoria’s Secret would then qualify as “soft-wear”!  I hope I didn’t just spoil an upcoming Jumble!  When Under Armour started getting popular, I always thought it was the skateboarding and surfing clothing company Hurley.  Very similar logos.  Hey, Bob!  If you ever decide to sue Kevin Plank I think I deserve a piece of the action!

No new clue words today.  All of the jumbling seemed new to me, but not very difficult.  The answer letter layout was splendid.  The fifth jumble!  At first, I thought this might be another Seinfeld syndication-type puzzler, but I quickly realized the five letter word was STORE.  After I wrote out the remaining letters I figured out the pun.  The shovel should have clued me in, but I guess I was a little slow on the uptake.  Cute Cartoon.  Kind of a Friar Tuck/Ish Kabibble haircut on the salesman.  You old-timers know what I’m talking about.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Does this mean that I qualify as a lazy person???  Hmm.  I certainly hope that I don’t have serial killer tendencies too!  Be well and do good, friends.  But, don’t take candy from strangers!)   —   YUR
