We’ve become so focused on that tiny screen that we forget the big picture, the people right in front of us.”   —   Regina Brett  (Sorry for the WordPress snafu yesterday, 9/7/15.  Thanks to ME and The Boss for pointing this out to me!)

(This is our first Regina Brett quotation, at least since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  And, it’s a great one!  Any time I see somebody walk into something, because they’re looking down at their dumb smart phone, I think good for you!  And, yes.  It has happened to me as well.  And, I figured I deserved it too.  Be well, be alert, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NO PICNIC

(Better safe than sorry!  That’s what my mother always says.  None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  Three interesting things came up in writing this spoiler.  1.  The word “adopt” spells out in alphabetic order.  We see that frequently.  2.  The jumble “cefint” is *spelled* in alphabetic order.  We don’t see that all that often.  And 3.  WordPress considers “benton” – when spelled with all caps – as a proper word!  But not when it’s in lower case!  I’m guessing that it sees it as a recognized name when it’s in caps, as in Thomas Hart Benton, the painter.  Or, his great-great uncle, the famous Senator from Missouri.  There is an Urban Dictionary definition for benton, but WordPress wouldn’t be acknowledging that.  The answer letter layout was fine, but this answer is kind of hard to hide, considering the great cartoon that’s been provided to us.  Lots to like about the cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
