(Excellent literal/figurative pun! All of today’s clue words are old favorites again. However, all the jumbles came up as new. I was able to get them all immediately. The answer letter layout was great, but with all the repeating Gs and Ns the answer was pretty evident. Nowhere’s near as tough as yesterdays! I’m still getting plenty of queries on that one today. Top notch cartoon, as usual. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
