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

    Go Sox! I tried for 3 days, and I finally figured out IMPACT. Then I had such trouble with the apostrophe word in the solution. SPIRIT=GHOST….I should have solved that knowing that the guys always use hints in the cartoon! Thanks for the answer, YUR!

    Of course you did! It’s a good one. When I’m playing catch up I generally don’t rave as much as I might when I’m on schedule. Great pun, with a great cartoon, Jeff!

    Nice one! I had a little trouble with HOTTER. I knew the first word of the answer was THAT’S, and the rest followed fairly easily.
