Answer:  STRONG AS AN OX

(Very cute!  And, I guess this answers one question.  Is it better to be STRONG LIKE BULL or as STRONG AS AN OX?  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  They’ve definitely used “ginaa” in the past.  The answer letter layout was a beautifully cryptic jumble.  It took me a minute or two to come up with the answer, mainly because of the great answer letter layout.  Great animated farm animals.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Love isn’t something you find.  Love is something that finds you.”   —   Loretta Young

(Kinda like your lost keys.  The harder you look for them, the more elusive they are.  Give up and go about your business . . . and there they are . . . right where you put them down . . . for whatever stupid reason!  Great quote from the lovely Loretta Young.  Looks to be her first, since I’ve been posting these spoilers at least.  She was always a favorite actress of my mom’s.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
