Answer:  ELECT NOT TO

(A great, and appropriate, pun!  None of the clue words were new, but three of the jumbles appear to be.  It seems they’ve used “coalf” before.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  I’m sure it took me half a minute to see the answer.  Cool cartoon.  I wish I had the full sized one, like I get at home.  I know I’m missing some great detail from the people who are waiting on line to vote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BOYSTEROUS

(Sweet pun!  None of today’s clue words are new, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  They’ve definitely used “kahys” before.  The answer letter layout was another excellent jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  The cartoon has an English boarding school feel to it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sometimes you don’t realize your own strength until you come face to face with your greatest weakness.”   —   Susan Gale

(Very true.  Tried to post this around 12:30 this morning, after getting out of the hospital, but the computer froze up, so I just shut it down and called it a night.  Sorry for the delay.  I’ll have to dig up yesterday’s Jumble out of the recycle bin.  I didn’t see any bio on Susan Gale.  And, Google images has a few different women with this name, so I thought it safer to just give you another one of her quotes.Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
