(Our first Beverley Nichols quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I was surprised to find out the author was a man.  Those Brits!  I love walking into a florist shop.  I especially like the smell of lavender and lilacs.  Just about all flowers.  Although, there are some types of lilies that are so pungent that they smell like garbage, or decaying flesh.  I can do without that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DISPELL IT

(Now, this is more your classic, stinky pun!  Ya gotta love it!  None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  For whatever reason, I had a tough time getting “openly”.  Maybe, because the jumble came across as a two syllable word?  Nice job, Mr. Hoyt.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  I can see a number of you having some difficulty in solving this.  Although, it was very apparent that the second word had to be IT.  A great Hansel and Gretel-esque cartoon from Mr. Knurek.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
