Answer:  FIELD DAY

(Splendid Jumble!  It brought us four new jumbles and two new clue words!  I suspected “birdie” was going to come up as new, but I was surprised that “fatten” also did.  Looks like ralis95 will have two new additions to his world famous clue word database.  The answer letter layout was also a fine jumble.  It did not give away the answer.  The cartoon was wonderful.  You know you’re looking at a farm, probably in late autumn.  The barn and silos in the background, along with some crows in the sky.  And, the grateful scarecrows, finally getting some well-deserved time off, playing horse-shoes and bean-bag toss, and eating what they were protecting most of the year.  Lots of fun, today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Whoa!  Hold the phone, Frances!  Her real first name.  Middle name, Ethel.  Sounds like someone woke up on the wrong side of the rainbow!  So talented, professionally, yet she led a tormented personal life, filled with divorces, financial problems, and drugs and alcohol.  And it ended all too soon, for her fans, as she died of a barbiturates overdose, at the age of 47.  We like to think that our heroes have it all, but they’re only human, like the rest of us.  Don’t let this quote stop you from dreaming though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
