I am always busy, which is perhaps the chief reason why I am always well.”   —   Elizabeth Cady Stanton

(So.  If you keep “busy” . . . you won’t get sick???  Or, is she not talking about her physical health, but her state of mind?  Hmm!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  IN GOOD HANDS

(Nice pun.  Not sure they’ve done ones with the deaf before!  None of the clue words were new, but two of the jumbles were.  We’ve seen “zoydo” and “golano” before.  The answer letter layout was also a nice jumble.  It gave nothing away.  The cartoon tells the story.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PLEASED AS PUNCH

(Beautiful pun!  No new clue words today, but four of the jumbles did come up as new.  we’ve seen both “sufeed” and “lonelp” before.  The jumble for “spiral” was so difficult for me, that even doing this Jumble for the second time I had to back into it.  It probably took me a little longer yesterday, but I still had no recollection of the word when I went to do it today.  I did it at my mom’s yesterday, but didn’t get a chance to post, due to having to drive 4 1/2 hours to get home.  I left it there, so I had to do it all over again, this morning, at my house.  I thought it would come to me instantly, like the first five words, but it was deja vu all over again!  The answer letter layout was good, but the answer was obvious, to me.  The cartoon is great.  It looks like the guy’s mouth guard is spit out on his chest!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A critic is a man who knows the way but can’t drive a car.”   —   Kenneth Tynan

(Dead at 53, from pulmonary emphysema!  But, doesn’t he look dapper smoking?  Okay, so maybe people really didn’t know any better in the 40s, 50s, and 60s.  But, why should we feel bad for people who end up with all sorts of smoking related illnesses since then?  It’s your choice to start.  Stopping might be harder for many, but it’s still your choice to stop.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
