Answer:  CLOSE, BUT NO CIGAR

(I was able to see every one of the old favorite clue words instantly, even though five of the jumbles were new.  We’ve seen “dunsed” before.  But, due to a superior answer letter layout, I was left scratching my head for a bit, when it came to figuring out the answer.  At first I thought that the second word was either OUT or NOT, and the third word was going to be OR, AN, or AS.  And, that the first or fourth word ended in ING.  But clearly, that got me nowhere.  But, I wised up, and saw that one or five had to be CIGAR.  So, with LBOCEOSUNT I was able to figure out CLOSE, BUT NO.  The clue word “accent” is another word that spells out in alphabetical order!  Loved the cartoon too.  Reminded me a little of Lucy and Ricky Riccardo!  Ricky!  Jou got some splaining to do!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When a man brings his wife flowers for no reason, there’s a reason.”   —   Molly McGee

(I don’t know which Molly McGee said this, but it was either a very jaded woman, or a very guilty man.  I occasionally bring Carol flowers for no reason.  Just when the feeling hits me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
