Answer:  PAST ITS PRIME

 

(Nothing like the stench of decaying meat!  And, what a great pun!  None of the clue words were new, but all of the jumbles came up new, for me.  I got a little hung up on “stereo” . . . again!  Certain words, no matter how they’re jumbled, always seem to trip me up.  I didn’t need to back into it or anything, but initially I was writing down RESTORE!  I kinda ran out of squares.  So, I had to take a harder look.  I got there before looking at the cartoon though.  The cartoon is great too.  Loads of fun little details.  I hope you all caught the flies.  The answer letter layout was pretty special too.  No giveaways there.  All in all, a superlative puzzle!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Whatever you want to do, do it now!  There are only so many tomorrows.”   —   Pope Paul VI

 

(Wow!  Even for Pope Paul VI this is pretty open-ended, to say the least.  I know he was only expressing a Carpe Diem philosophy, but coming from a Pope it almost sounds like: Permission to Sin!  Be well and do good, friends.  Seize the day . . . but only within the confines of the law and general morality.)   —   YUR
