Answer:  BEEF UP SECURITY

(I’d say that’s a lot of bull, but then I’d be udderly ridiculous!  The security force is clearly female, while the grazers are likely steers.  Every single jumble is coming up new today, but all of the clue words are old favorites.  I didn’t struggle to get any of them, but I thought they were all good jumbles.  The answer letter layout was another super jumble.  My earlier stated theory served me well today, as UP was part of the answer.  Loved all of Jeff’s moo-cows!  And, for whatever reason, I’m getting kind of a Wyoming/Montana feeling.  Possibly Colorado.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?”   —   Abraham Lincoln

(Self-deprecating humor comes in very handy sometimes.  Abe knew he was a little awkward . . . a little odd, by popular standards.  So, he kind of followed the old adage:  When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!  Kind of like Yankee fans this year, getting excited by their big three relievers:  Betances, Miller and Chapman.  They are pretty awesome, but if your starting pitching is dubious – to say the least, and your hitting is anything but consistent, then having the top relievers in the game is only going to help you just so much.  People choose to cling to the positives, and rightly so.  Happy Loving Day to one and all!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
