Answer:  SEALED THE DEAL

(Beautiful!  Topical too!  There’s been frost on the pumpkin some mornings, and winter is just around the corner.  Will it be mild, or will it be wild?  So many conflicting predictions.  We’ll all just have to wait and see, I guess.  No new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  I can verify that we’ve seen both “badie” and “bemmel” used here before.  The answer letter layout made for a wonderful jumble.  I don’t think it gave a hint to the answer.  Before I read the clue/question I thought the cartoon was about selling replacement windows!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Happy autumn!!!!! Lesley checking in! Boy, am I rusty! It took me quite awhile to work through this puzzle. The oak trees in my town have made quite a mess of the place with their abundance of acorns dropping and hitting us all on the head! The last time this happened, and not nearly as bad, we had a mild winter! How has it been in the northern parts where you live?

    Hey, Lesley!

    I’m hearing the acorn situation is the same around here. It’s been a generally mild Fall, so far, with only a couple of frosts. hoping for a relatively mild Winter!
