(And, we’d put out beer and pretzels for Santa, instead of milk and cookies!  By the end of his ride he’d be totally sloshed!  So many kids would get the wrong – maybe even inappropriate – presents.  He’d be puking off your roof, or in your fireplace.  He’d be flying through restricted airspace.  Oh, it would be total chaos!  I guess it’s a good thing that Christmas is held in December, after all.

No new clue words today.  Three of the four jumbles were new though.  I could only verify that we’ve seen the one for “notch” before.  Excellent job on the answer letter layout.  It was a super jumble.  And, of course the cartoon, with Jeff and David, and Santa Patrick and the shamrocks, was lots of fun.  I hope everyone had a safe Saint Patrick‘s Day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
