(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

    You had me!!! Grand puzzler. And, thank goodness, one that didn’t take me but a little time. I knew those were some kind of horns in the display case, so I figured out that horns was in the answer when I saw the letters laid out. French came pretty quickly.

    I am now caught up…but we’ve been gone since Wednesday and I never had a chance to even look up a puzzler. My dear mother in law (dmil) passed a week ago today and her funeral was this past weekend in Kentucky.

    We’ve been busy, as you can imagine. Now, taking care of business still for mama’s passing, and now DMIL.

    So many great puzzlers that have come and gone and I didn’t have the time to comment on. Hate that!

    Take care all. LL
