(Cornets are also popular in France!  But, the gag is clearly French Horns.  No new clue words.  All but “rofey” are new jumbles though.  The answer letter layout is another fine jumble.  It gives away nothing.  The question and cartoon make the answer pretty obvious though.  All you see are french horns!  I like La Tour Eiffel in the background, and the snootiness of the salesclerk.  I wonder if this is a young Dizzy Gillespie?  Could be!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Pay no attention to what critics say; no statue has ever been put up to a critic.”   —   Jean Sibelius

(A little sour grapes?  If you’re breathing, you are subject to criticism.  And . . . everybody is a critic.  Puts me in mind of a popular Facebook posting I see from time to time:  There are 7 BILLION people on Earth.  And, you’re going to let ONE person’s opinion ruin your day?!?!  There are many life lessons that I have learned too late.  Be well, don’t be so thin skinned and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
