(I think most of us can appreciate this. George was a fine actor. Probably best known for The Picture of Dorian Gray, Forever Amber, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, and All About Eve. A contemporary, and friend of David Niven. He suffered from a kind of dementia and depression, and took his own life at the age of 65. It reminds me some of Robin Williams‘ demise. Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BEST CELLAR

(THAT’S a good, stinky pun!  And, I didn’t pick up on the answer right away.  It took me half a minute.  My first inkling was that the first word might be REAL, but that would only leave me with one vowel – E – for the second, longer word.  So, I took a second look, and maybe the quotation marks sunk in to my thick skull, but all of a sudden I saw the complete answer!  I attribute it all to the fantastic answer letter layout.  It was a great cryptic jumble!  None of the clue words were new, but all of the jumbles do seem to be new.  I thought the jumble “lehdob” was the trickiest, but they were all pretty good.  Lots to like in the cartoon.  Jumble pinball machine, hot tub, recliners, big-screen TV, computer, and some books, with the top one reading Scrambled Eggs #1.  Not sure if this is a play on jumbled, or if one of the guys knows a writer who wrote a book with this title.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
