(A very pleasant mid-summer’s Jumble.  And, an enjoyable pun.  We have another new clue word today, in “glint”.  Our friend, ralis95, will have to update his database once more.  All of the jumblings were new, to me.  The answer letter layout was carefully crafted to give nothing away.  And, the cartoon is quite inviting.  Comfortable lawn chairs on a dock that is providing shade for some little fishies.  The guys are in shorts and bare feet.  Some nice lily pads in the foreground, and a fish jumping out of the water in the background.  Looks like the makings of a perfect day.  Be well and do good, friends.  Enjoy the great outdoors.)   —   YUR

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and blows up the bonfire.”   —   Rochefoucauld

(This just might be the best analogy I’ve ever read!  This quote also made for a fairly challenging cryptoquote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
