Answer:   PALM READER

(Wow!  A lot to like about this Jumble.  All of the jumbles were new to me.  And, we have two brand new clue words, in “humane” and “ornery”.  I’ve been known to be a little ornery.  And, that ralis95 . . . Hoo boy, can he ever be ornery!  I fully thought that “ornery” would show up as new, but I was a little surprised that “humane” wasn’t in the ralis95 clue word database.  HUMAN is there.  Hoyt even tried to be sneaky with the jumbles for “admit” and “plume”.  Nice going.  The answer letter layout was masterful.  It took me a minute or two to get the answer.  At first, I was thinking that the first word might be REAL.  But, it didn’t look like I’d be able to do anything – that made sense – with the leftovers.  But, I think that is what made me see the word PALM, and then it clicked.  I guess some days it’s better to be lucky than good.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(Usually, about five seconds sooner too.  We don’t know if we can be a hero until we’re in the heat of the moment.  I think most of us would measure up.  I had some trouble getting this one started, but then I broke my own rule and looked at the author.  From there it was a piece of cake.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
