(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

    It’s something we used to say in high school, “That’s the way the cookie crumbles, and the Mercedes Benz!” (Minutes later, somebody would say, “Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana!”) Obviously it didn’t take much to amuse us!
