Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.”   —   Khalil Gibran

(There should always be a certain element of mystery in art.  When something is really obvious then it’s pretty commonplace.  And, it’s harder to call that “art”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  VINEYARD

(Not bad!  Not too tough, but a decent pun.  We actually have another new clue word today, in “loving”.  Hoyt is really keeping ralis95 busy this week!  The database continues to grow.  And, all of today’s jumbles came up as new.  I thought all of today’s jumbles were pretty good.  None of them jumped off the page for me.  Commendable answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious about it.  Nice suburban cartoon, with a lawn mower and fence, and an entitled pesky neighbor.  It looks like there is some writing on his beer can, but I can’t make out the name.  It might be American, or America.  American Beer is out of Pittsburgh.  The same people who make Iron City Beer.  I’ve never had it.  America Beer is what Budweiser has re-branded itself, at least for this summer.  Bud is reliable, though not really my cup of tea.  I prefer ambers, porters and stouts.  I’m not a fan of the IPAs, though they’re really big with the hipsters.  They are all too hoppy for my tastes.  Hops are very flowery, and to me they just make the beer taste like soap.  So, I’ll let all you hipster beer drinkers have all the additional flowery hops.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
