Answer:  CHOICE WAS CLEAR

(Crystal!  Have you ever seen really old glass windows?  A lot of them were kind of wavy and fuzzy, with a tint of blue or green.  I’m sure that at one time glass windows were a bit of a luxury.  They’d keep bugs and stuff out, and allow light and heat in, but keen visibility wasn’t THE main concern.

We actually have a new clue word today!  I hope ralis95 is checking his email!  The new clue word is “career”.  Our friend can add that to his famous clue word database.  All the jumbles appear to be new today, but only the one for “cashew” gave me any trouble.  I’m glad we got “slowly”, though.  Have you noticed how so many people, these days, use the adjective when they should be using the adverb?  They say: Go slow and Drive safe.  Would adding the LY kill them?  Seriously.  Oh, well.  The answer letter layout was mighty fine.  Nothing obvious about it.  Nothing given away.  Fine cartoon, too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
