English: This is Huxley, a Jack Russell terrier. She is probably half Parson Russell terrier as she has long legs (13.5″ at the shoulder). Huxley is named after Aldous Huxley. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”   —   Aldous Huxley

(I’m trying, friends!  I’m not OLD old, yet.  But, I’m staying in shape, listening to new music that I actually like, and just being the silly ass that I’ve been all my life.  You need to keep that youthful verve, if you don’t want to swerve into mental retirement.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MULTITASKKING

(Beautiful pun!  And, a nice long 13-letter answer!  Was this one difficult?  I think for the majority of regular Jumble fans this was not.  All of the clue words were old favorites.  Three of the jumbles look to be new.  Hoyt has used “kiyls” before.  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  A wonderful jumble itself.  Lots of fun with Jeff’s cartoon.  Guitar and keyboard.  Old-style telephone and cassette tape.  The pen holder on the console could be the one-eyed cat, from Shake, Rattle and Roll.  Priscilla’s high-hair.  The coup de grâce is the TV, with a bullet hole in it!  The fatter, Vegas-style Elvis seems a little out of place though, but only by a year or so.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
