Answer:  ON HAND

(I love these seasonal Jumbles.  They are so reaffirming.  I hope you all had a pleasant weekend, but now it’s time to get to work.  There were no new clue words today.  Most of the jumbles were new, with the exception of the one for “oblong”.  We’ve definitely seen that one before.  I thought the one for “bemoan” was the most challenging.  The answer letter layout was great.  There is just not much you can do to hide a six-letter answer.  The cartoon was great.  It brought me back to my childhood, when we would play just about every sport, in the combined property between my house and my next door neighbor’s, which was widely known as “The Field”.  Swell times.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.”   —   Henry D. Thoreau

(Many of us are richer than we think.  I like how they tried to make the author a little harder to get.  Certain names just kind of scream out at you, and then there is very little challenge in solving the cryptoquote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
