Answer:  AT A GOOD CLIP

(Great pun!  Before looking at the answer letters I was thinking AT A NICE CLIP, but that’s just a po-tay-to/po-tah-to thing.  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I had to give a little thought to “grando”!  I thought the answer letter layout made for a very cryptic jumble.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some had some difficulty getting the answer.  The cartoon was shear madness.  Truly a cut above.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I continue to be on a roll. 9 seconds, extending my sub-10 second streak to 4 days (my best ever streak). I had to think a second to VALID but I got DRAGON, which was in my “toughest words” list, instantly. For the final answer, I immediately guessed that it started with “AT A”, and as I was typing that, I figured out the rest of it. Very nice pun!

    Arrgh! Took me forever to unscramble dragon & pocket but it finally happened. Solving it was easy, this was one of the fun ones. Thanks!
