I think of my life as a kind of music, not always good music but still having form and melody.”   —   John Steinbeck

(I think this is a great way to view our lives!  It’s fine to be a little off-key.  A little sharp one day, and a little flat the next.  Just try to avoid a mono-tonal kind of existence.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PUNDERSTUDY

(A great, stinky pun!  A real groaner!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “buryg” before.  I thought “neyolp” was a nifty jumble.  It took me a few seconds to get that one.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful jumble, that did not give anything away, in my opinion.  In the cartoon, the word guy seems a little peeved.  Why does the “artist” get all the best puns???  LOL!  I hope the guys treat their apprentice better than old E.B. did!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
