Answer:  STATIONARY

(A homophonic pun!  Haven’t had one of those in a while!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  Once again, I struggled to get “casino”.  I had to back into it.  The answer letter layout was good, but even with only seven of the letters I was able to figure out the gag.  The cartoon was unremarkable, but it definitely got the point across.  The store’s name:  The Write Stuff was cute.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Like you, Unc Rave, I had to back into that word. I am always reluctant to walk straight into a gambling jernt!

    Thanks, hal. I can enjoy myself at a casino, on occasion, because I know my limitations. Too many others don’t, and they end up paying for that . . . big time! — YUR

    Oh my word! CASINO…..I’ve been gone and my husb had this puzzler saved for me. I had CAISON down for the word, just knew the answer had to be STATIONARY, but had no I. Then I figured the paper had again messed up where the circle should have been until I double checked my unjumbled clue words against Uncs. The dear husb tells me he told me it was two Ss in caisson…NOT! Good one!
