Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or better.”   —   John Updike

(Somehow . . . this appears to be the first Updike quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Interesting.  I looked at the name without the P and K for a few seconds, and drew a blank.  I was thinking the long U sound, as in Ubanks or Udall, so it threw me a little.  I felt silly when it came to me.  Be well . . . be creative and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DUEZIE

(As in:  DOOZY, kids.  I can see some of you having a little trouble getting this one.  DOOZIE would be a variant of DOOZY, and I think you all get the DUE part of a credit card bill.  We actually have a new clue word today, in “muzzle”.  Our buddy, ralis95 can add this to his world famous clue word database.  We’ve seen the jumble for “deceit” before, but it still tripped me up a little.  Nice answer letter layout.  It was the fifth jumble today.  Nice domestic scene cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
