Answer:  HOUSEWARMING

(Another long answer.  I was a little surprised that it was a one word answer.  I didn’t realize that it was a compound word.  Maybe if enough of us start writing compoundword – like this – one day it too will become a compound word . . . or a compoundword!  Hey, why not?!?!

No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were new.  Only “someo” has been used before.  Wonderfully cryptic answer letter layout again!  If you had to rely on only it for the answer you might have been in trouble.  The cartoon reminds me of a current commercial, where this young adult son is showing his father NYC.  Not sure what it’s for.  Maybe a credit card?  The guy playing the father is just a little too cool and reserved, for my taste.  Whatever.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
