Answer:  GOBBLE GOBBLE

(Nice, holiday appropriate pun!  I didn’t need a pen to do this one.  All of the clue words are old favorites, and one of the jumbles, “sobbar”, has been used before.  The answer letter layout was swell, but with four repeating letters, it really didn’t present much of a challenge.  But, today isn’t about mental challenges.  It’s about giving thanks.  Hopefully, you all – like me – can find many things to be thankful for.  Life is good.  Happy Thanksgiving, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – Thanksgiving 2016

He who thanks but with the lips, thanks but in part; the full, the true thanksgiving comes from the heart.”   —   J. A. Shedd

(Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers!  This appears to be the first J. A. Shedd quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  This wasn’t easy for me, because my Mom’s newspaper doesn’t carry the Cryptoquote, and her printer is out of ink/toner!  I had to do it by sight alone.  The words “lips”, “part”, “full” and “true” took a little thought!  And, I had to guess with the author.  Thankfully, Google could confirm it for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
