Answer:  RECORD KEEPING

(Shop-lifting record albums?!?!  Not too obvious!  LOL!  There were no new clue words today, but there were a couple of new jumbles.  We have definitely seen “durpo” and “cintee” before.  The answer letter layout was beautifully cryptic.  A nice long jumble.  The cartoon is very amusing.  I love the slacker and the punk.  I guess yesterday’s Jumble was more challenging than I originally thought.  Lots of queries!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
