(Another one where I didn’t need to read the clue/question, and even really look hard at the cartoon.  The answer letter layout kind of gave it away today.  Switching “cello” and “royal” would have given us ROACLOUNWND, which might have made it a little more challenging.  I think the bigger problem is the order of the letters in the clue words “cello” and “window”.  CLO and WN just made it pretty obvious.  If there were different clue words, with these letters, but in a different order, I think it would have been a little more challenging.  Just my two cents.  The clue word “cello” though is new to the Jumble.  The ralis95 clue word database continues to grow!  All of the jumblings are new, from my perspective.  The cartoon is really great today.  We’ve got an injured lion tamer, an acrobatic – perhaps trapeze – artist enjoying some cocktails, and two clowns spritzing the ringmaster.  Loads of fun there, and a mostly fine Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Well, I was stuck on the answer having unwind in it….but I had no “i.” So I convinced myself that my newspaper had yet again had a wrong letter circled. Then I continued to play around with the clue letters and studying the puzzler….got it. It was obvious……but when I get stuck on what I think it is…that is trouble!
