Cooking is like snow skiing:  if you don’t fall at least ten times, then you’re not skiing hard enough.”   —   Guy Fieri

(Falling is not the hard part about skiing.  That’s easy.  The hard part is getting back up again.  But, Guysie is right!  You can’t be afraid of making life’s mistakes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PAYING OFF

(Very nice pun.  Not stinky in the least.  We have another new clue word today, in “flail”!  That’s either the second, or third, new word in a week.  I know we had REALLY just yesterday, and we had HOTTER a few days before that.  Hoyt is really keeping ralis95 busy, updating his world famous clue word database!  Three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “wolfn” before.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Jeff’s great cartoon, its dialog, and the leading nature of the clue/question made the solve pretty much a no-brainer, for me.  It looks like yesterday’s Jumble gave many of you a little trouble!  Lots of queries, and a good number of comments.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
