I have the most ill-regulated memory.  It does those things which it ought not to do and leaves undone the things it ought to have done.”   —   Dorothy L. Sayers

(Hey!  It’s called growing old!  In her case though, it might have been partially due to narrowing of the arteries.  She didn’t exactly have a long life, dying of coronary thrombosis at the age of 64.  Our first Dorothy L. Sayers quote!  Maybe, some will seek out her books – mystery/crime novels mainly – due to today’s Cryptoquote.  Hope so.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —    YUR

Answer:  UNDERTAKING

(Good stinky pun!  None of today’s clue words are new, but every jumble came up as new.  They were all fairly challenging, but for me the toughest was “kogec”.  I actually had to back into it.  Even after realizing that I needed the G and K, it still took me a little while to see “gecko”.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  But, the combination of the available letters, the cartoon, and the clue/question made the answer pretty easy for me to get.  I wonder if this jumble was inspired by a recent visit to NYC???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
