(Wunderbar!  And, one hell of a car!  Click on the pic of the bad boy to the left!  There were no new clue words today.  But, all of the jumblings were new, to me.  Both “dressy” and “screwy” are relatively new though.  And, we haven’t seen either “blend” or “mince” in quite a while.  So, nice job there, Mr. Hoyt.  The answer letter layout was another wonderful jumble, and it’s impressive that he got the 13 letters out of those 4 short words.  Cool cartoon.  Although, it kind of comes off like a stretch limo that hit a tree.  Tough to draw.  Especially, if one of your goals is to get that emblematic emblem front and center!  With names like Hoyt and Knurek, it sounds like our boys might be of Germanic ancestry.  Until I saw today’s Jumble, with the Benz in it, I had never given it any thought.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I guess I haven’t quite reached that stage!  Even though his work led to the theory of evolution,  Darwin could not escape the prevailing societal norms of sinning in one’s heart.  Thoughts can, and often do, lead to actions, so we do have to exercise a certain amount of caution.  But, it’s certainly no foregone conclusion.  But, then again . . . I’m such an animal!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
