Answer:  OVER AND OVER

(Not bad.  I really liked the jumbling of the clue words.  They all appear to be new jumblings.  We even have a new clue word, in “valid”.  I wonder how that one has escaped us so long?!  The answer letter layout could have been a little more challenging.  Swapping “valid” and “rainy”, and also “velvet” and “orator” would made it a little tougher, in my opinion.  The cartoon and dialog do a great job of setting up the pun.  I don’t think too many of you struggled with this one today.  The photo directly above is of the standing high jump.  That’s old school.  Nowadays, they do the running start and the Fosbury Flop, like in the top photo.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.”   —   Amelia Earhart

(Amelia never had to tackle my email!  Nor, my snail mail, for that matter.  I’m totally overwhelmed.  I periodically take a whack at both, so the decision is there.  But, I only seem to get just so far, and then the next day just brings more.  Talk about your information overload!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
