Answer:  IN TIP-TOP SHAPE

(This Jumble feels kind of old school.  But, I don’t think it was obvious in any way.  The Ps and the hyphen were the biggest clues for me.  No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “wpest” before.  Splendid answer letter layout.  Great cartoon as well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  THAT’S THE SPIRIT

(Not a bad pun.  We appear to have a new clue word today, in “hotter”.  I guess ralis95 can add this to his world famous clue word database.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was marvelously cryptic.  And, the cartoon was a lot of fun.  Jeff’s little send up to the Cubbies!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
