(Very nice!  Movie themed Jumbles are my favorite.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were new.  I can only confirm that we’ve seen “byred” before.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away.  I thought it was a great jumble, in its own right.  The cartoon is priceless.  The road, the corn field, a great Dorothy, in her ruby slippers, and a super Scarecrow.  All that’s missing is Toto.  Who doesn’t love The Wizard of Oz?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
