Answer:  VIPER“-ACTIVE

(Verry punny!  I loved it.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  It took a little thought for me to get both “panic” and “triple”.  The answer letter layout was a pretty special jumble, in its own right.  The cartoon is priceless!  The male snake holding a cup of coffee with his tail, and the female snake with hair and eyelashes!  Good stuff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and from 1951 to 1955. Deutsch: Winston Churchill, 1940 bis 1945 sowie 1951 bis 1955 Premier des Vereinigten Königreichs und Literaturnobelpreisträger des Jahres 1953. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In the course of my life, I have often had to eat my words, and I must confess that I have always found it a wholesome diet.”   —   Winston Churchill

(Getting a little cocky there, aren’t we, Winnie!  This was an easy solve, of a fairly long quote.  The thing that made it interesting for me, and I’m not sure if this was by design or something my newspaper did, was that the author’s last name was split up, from one line to the next!  I was thinking: I’ve never seen anybody with the last name CHILL!?!  I’m glad that it came out that way, because – straight out – the author name, Winston Churchill,  is readily identifiable.  And, for me, that takes away some of the challenge.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
