(I like it!  I’m not familiar with this particular strip, Half Full, but it looks amusing.  The cartoon characters remind me a little of the animated cartoon, Family Guy.  I don’t really watch the show, but that’s the impression that I get.

It seems like we’re seeing a first, here today.  None of the clue words are new today, and all of the jumbles have been used before, as well.  The answer letter layout made for a very good jumble.  It’s cryptic enough to require you to figure out the answer from the cartoon and clue/question.  If Maria wanted to completely get into the Jumble spirit, her painting on the wall should have been of a sinking sailboat.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
