Answer:  LOVE AT FIRST “SITE”

(The way the clue/question was worded made me think the first word should end in “ing”, but it was only four letters!  Then I thought that the last word was either going to be LOVE or LIFE.  Trying LOVE . . . first at least helped me remove enough letters for me to see FIRST.  The remaining AETSIT  gave me AT and SITE.  Then I was able to get the order right!  This shows you the value of a good answer letter layout.  Hoyt nailed it . . . again!  There were no new clue words today, but all the jumbles, with the exception of the one for “attend”, were new.  Fine cartoon, too.  I couldn’t make out the full name of the __‘s Bean Nice Cafe.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
