Answer:  NIGHT OWLS

(Not a bad pun.  We actually have another new clue word today, in “coddle”.  This must be added to the world famous ralis95 clue word database posthaste . . . and forthwithOr, whenever he gets around to it.  Three of the jumbles were new to me, with “rowns” definitely having been used here before.  Pretty cryptic answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious.  The cartoon is great!  Kind of a cartoonish rendition of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks.  A great ’40s piece of Americana.  Edward Hopper was born and raised in Nyack, NY, very near to where yer uncle currently lives.  His house is now a cultural center/gallery.  Been there a few times.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Life is full of beauty.  Notice it.  Notice the bumblebee, the small child, and the smiling faces.  Smell the rain, and feel the wind.”   —   Ashley Smith

(I think this is from an author who was known as the Atlanta Hostage Hero, because she talked her captor into giving up, by reading him chapter 32 of The Purpose Driven Life This quote actually goes on to say:  “Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”  But, they’re really two different things, to me.  Separately, they’re both good thoughts, but I prefer the one in today’s puzzle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
