Answer:  COUNT ME IN

(I think the guys need to come up with some kind of a hybrid zombie/abacus Jumble!  Why not combine two of their most popular themes?!?!  I wonder what THAT would look like?  LOL!  Very surprisingly, we have a new clue word today, in . . . “query”!  I even checked a few of the older versions of the ralis95 clue word databases, to see if maybe he inadvertently deleted the word.  All the jumbles came up as new, for me.  I actually had to back into “census”, which probably isn’t the first time with that word.  Some words just seem to throw me.  The answer letter layout was good, even without the C and N from “census”.  But, any gag with an abacus is liable to have the word count in it.  I always enjoy the historical cartoons.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(The only problem with this is that your interests become so varied, that it becomes too hard to focus on the one something.  I know I’ll never know everything about anything.  But, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yes.  I had to guess on the X!   —   YUR
