(Sniff, sniff, sniff!  E-eww, yeah!  That is one stinky pun!  Much worse than horse manure.  I wouldn’t be surprised though if this threw . . . a few . . . of you.  Hey!  Guess what?  Until today, the Jumble has NEVER before used the word “heaven” as a clue word!  It’s true.  Unless it was somehow omitted from the more recent ralis95 clue word databases.  We’ve seen “byred” before as a jumble, but the other three seem to be new jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a thing of beauty.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Fun cartoon of Teddy Roosevelt reliving his Rough Rider days!  Great Jumble.  It gave us a little of everything.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    What a stumper!!! With the quotes I figured HORSE did not work. Had all of the words. Had to get the husb to help with this one. I pulled up our Uncs blog and told the husb what words I had and he’s like, yes. So, I’m still not seeing the answer until I moved ONE to the end of the puzzler answer. OMG! The guyz totally had me on this one!

    Still working forward on the puzzlers!! Sooo many great ones. LL
