Answer: CLOSE AT HAND
(I think we all saw this coming! It qualifies as a good stinky pun. There were no new clue words today, but two of the jumbles appear to be new. Both “hentt” and “doyld” have been used before. They were all good, but none of them were too tough. The answer letter layout was another stellar jumble. It gave nothing away. The cartoon is good standard fortune teller fare. I think it’s been a while since we had one though. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
