Answer:  GOOD ENTRANCE

(With just a little tweaking they could have made the answer GRAND ENTRANCE.  Don’t ask me what words to use to get to that!  That’s Hoyt’s challenge.  Maybe guard instead of “gourd”, and chance instead of “bounce”.  That probably would have worked, but thirteen letters is kinda big for the daily Jumble.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I actually had to back into “after”, and I really liked the jumbles of “bounce” and “ornery”.  Ornery makes me think of ralis95!  The answer letter layout was great because it makes you think the answer IS grand entrance!  For half a second, at least.  The cartoon does a great job showing the ornate doorway.  At least the full-sized one does.  Can’t comment on the condensed one some of you guys get.  All in all a great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
