Answer:  FALLING PRICES

(Another case of an excellent answer letter layout, combined with my being a little off my game.  It took me a while to see this one, again.  And, this time my daughter and her boyfriend were already at work.  At first I was certain that the first word was SPECIAL.  But, I couldn’t do a thing with GRILFN.  I think that helped me to see the ING in FALLING, and I finally got the pun.  None of the clue words are new today, but three of the jumbles are new.  We’ve seen “lirgl” before.  I guess there is the free falling aspect of skydiving, but I always think about it as jumping out of an airplane.  I did it once.  It was a blast!  First timers generally do it as a tandem jump.  You need to have someone with experience on your back, so you don’t forget to do something important.  Like pull the ripcord.  Cute cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
