Answer:  TREEO

(I think one of David Hoyt’s kids came up with this one.  Most puns have a kind of childlike innocence to them – that’s part of the charm of them – but today’s almost has a knock-knock joke quality to it.  A little obvious, and a little corny.  But, that’s okay.  A little silly is good for the soul.  But, hey!  Guess what???  We have a new clue word today!  Yes, the drought is over.  The word “thrift” can be added to the ralis95 clue word database.  I’m always a little surprised when it’s such a simple, common word like that.  Of course, its jumble is new as well, but two other jumbles came up as new too.  The only one we’ve definitely seen before is “netve”.  The answer letter layout was a nice little jumble.  Cute little yard scene.  I hope those are some kind of dwarf oaks, because they’re planted awfully close together if they’re going to grow to full size.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I saw through the corner of my eye that the final answer was only 5 letters long, so I felt I should do this quickly. Got the first three words instantly, and thought I had the fourth instantly as well, but I had typed in BELLOW. It didn’t fit, and I was scratching my head as to what went wrong. Then, I realized that there were two B’s and only one L. Finally, I figured out that it was WOBBLE, so I certainly wobbled on that one. The final answer took me around 10 seconds!!! So easy, yet so hard. So, if was David’s kids who came up with this, great job! I am NOT smarter than a sixth grader.

    This one went quickly, though when I first looked at it, nothing jumped out. But when I sat down to work it with undivided attention, I zipped through it quickly. Probably took longer to write out all the letters than it did to actually get the answers.
