Love and magic have a great deal in common.  They enrich the soul, delight the heart.  And they both take practice.”   —   Nora Roberts

(Our first Nora Roberts quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I don’t think I completely agree with this statement though.  Maybe because I’m too literal, and I’m thinking “magic” as in magicians’ and illusionists’ tricks.  They do delight the heart, but I don’t think they enrich the soul.  If she’s going with the more figurative, as with charming and fascinating and irresistible, then I might give it to her.  But, those are usually elements of love.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TIERING UP

(Excellent pun!  Very clever.  There were no new clue words today, however three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “cudnit” before.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble.  Whenever there’s a two letter word in the answer, and a U and a P in the answer letter layout, chances are very good that you’re going to see the word UP.  Jeff’s great cartoon gave me the TIERING.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
