(Excellent.¬† Nice 12 letter answer.¬† It looks like we have a new clue word, in “kudos”.¬† ralis95 can add this to his clue word database!¬† All of the jumbles appear to be new.¬† I thought they were all great, but especially the one for “mosaic”.¬† The answer letter layout was another great jumble.¬† Definitely not a give away.¬† Super job on the cartoon.¬† I like all the butts by the guy’s sandaled feet, and the smoke effect.¬† Not quite sure what that is coming from the front/side of the shed, above the wife’s accusing finger, but it doesn’t detract from the overall drawing.¬† Be well and do good, friends.) ¬† — ¬† YUR

(Very noble hyperbole from a . . . guess what . . . motivational speaker!¬† The proper attitude – and fortitude – ARE very important attributes in succeeding at anything, but your environment and circumstances usually do have a say in the matter.¬† Some will overcome life’s various obstacles, others won’t.¬† If you don’t want to feel like a defeatist . . . you keep plugging.¬† Be well and do good, friends.)¬†¬† —¬†¬† YUR

PS.¬†¬† Yes, Art.¬† I did have to Google to get the V.¬† It could have been almost any one of the ten remaining letters.¬†¬† —¬†¬† YUR
