(Oooh!  That’s a stinky pun!  But, I like it.  There’s a restaurant by me called the Hard Wok Buffet.  I always got a kick out of that name.  And, they do serve a very nice buffet, at a very reasonable price.  With my wife’s family, we usually end up there after a funeral.  Occasionally, for happier gatherings, like birthdays.  It’s very convenient.

There are no new clue words today, however three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen “tramwh” before.  None of them gave me any trouble today.  The answer letter layout was fantastic.  Before looking at the cartoon – which I always do last – I was thinking that the 4-letter word was going to be KNEW or KNOW.  But, as soon as I saw the cartoon I got the joke!  Cute cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Very nice! I got all four words instantly. For the final answer, the mention of stir-fried vegetables in the clue and the quotation marks for the first word made it clear to me that the first word was WOK. Once I figured that out, the pun came to me right away. The three-day rough stretch is over.
