Answer:  SWING BY LATER

(I like it!  A 12 letter answer, decent pun, and there was a bit of a challenge to this one.  I bet a good number of you struggled to get this one.  All of the jumbling was new, to me.  And, we have another new clue word today, in “flange”.  Someone roust ralis95!  I almost thought the word was fangle, as in newfangled, but I thought better.  The answer letter layout was sublime today!  I don’t think it gave away a thing.  Another fine cartoon, but I don’t recognize the logo on the bag.  Is that a hippo?  Other than putt-putt, and driving ranges where you can use their clubs, I haven’t golfed in about 40 years, so I’m clueless.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Yes, Unc Rave, I initially went with FANGLE; if something can be new-fangled, then obviously you can FANGLE it in the first place, right? By the bye, FANGLE has a listing in merriam-webster.com, so it’s a word, right? (Not in dictionary.com or chambers.co.uk, so there!) Maybe I was just slightly intoxicated from the third word … but FLANGE was the only way the secret words would SWING into place. It’s gotta be a challenge to pick 5- and 6-letter words with no anagrams. –hal

    I’m very surprised, hal. I just looked it up and FANGLE is there. Looks like David L. Hoyt might have to exclude FLANGE from his list of clue words. (The WordPress spell-check doesn’t like it though.) I think we need Hoyt to make a ruling on this.

    Well y’all, fangle was not in my handy dandy little Franklin Spelling Ace….thank goodness or I’d have really been stuck. Flange took a bit, and I could not back into it because it took me some time to figure out the puzzler answer!

    BTW Hal, that was some very sound reasoning!!!!
