Answer:  SHINDIG

(I’m not so sure the young folk could get this answer!  It’s a bit of a stretch . . . even for us older folks.  It’s definitely a visual gag.  The one guy is standing in a hole . . . about shin deep.  I can dig it though!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  The answer letter layout probably stumped a number of you.  There used to be a TV show in the ’60s called Shindig.  It was kind of like American Bandstand and Hullabaloo.  It was a Pop/Rock music variety show, with go-go dancers and stuff . . . I think.  I was just a child at the time.  I think Shindig was on ABC, but I’m not certain.  Okay, now I’m certain.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    My pleasure, Chantal! I’ve been nearly stumped by RODENT in the past. I think it’s one of those words for which I have a minor mental block. Thanks for the comment. — YUR 🙂
