Answer:  AT HER DISPOSAL

(Nice stinky pun.  No new clue words today.  However, all the jumbles came up as new.  I had a little trouble with “crusep”, and I still don’t like compound words and can’t spell “weasel” correctly!  The answer letter layout was a very nifty jumble.  It didn’t give the answer away.  The little switch on the wall was kind of the bonus clue.  Fun cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  There is still time to enter the RALIS95 Holiday (Jumble) Contest!  So, if you’ve been thinking on it . . . give it a shot!     YUR

If you can’t say something good about someone, sit right here by me.”   —   Alice Roosevelt Longworth

(I guess Teddy’s girl really liked her gossip!  It’s part of human nature.  Gossip can certainly be hurtful.  But, it can also be benign, if done discreetly, and doesn’t contain half-truths or outright lies.  When it comes to gossip, it’s probably better to be more the sponge than a spreader.  As with “news” and “info” from so-called credible sources, you have to both consider the source, and take it all with a grain of salt.  Regardless, it’s a clever paraphrasing of the old saw.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
