Answer:  JOB WAS ON THE LINE

(Some day, in the not too distant future, we might have to explain to kids what a circus was!  It’s sad, but they seem to be fading fast.  There are no new clue words today, but four of the jumbles are new.  The guys have used both “collea” and “rawnod” before.  The answer letter layout was another spectacular jumble.  It didn’t even hint at the answer.  As usual, the cartoon was stellar.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    AAA+ jumble! I was all around the answer. First I was looking for high, wire, toe…maybe toe the line something or another. Then I started working on the J alone up popped JOB then the answer!

    Yes, excellent cartoon. Excellent Jumbler!!! As always, thanks guyz!!

    You are so right Unc. I believe that we’ve seen our last circus in my neck of the woods. We’ll see. Those are great circus pics.

    I grew up next door to a man, William McFann, who carved a whole Ringling Brothers Circus. I saw a good bit of it as a child and then we moved in 63. It was amazing and so vert intricate. I believe the whole circus was sold when he passed and I’m not sure where it ended up or if he had finished carving the entire circus. I have tried to find it. Memories. LL

    You know, Linda Lee, it seems like I have seen something like that on “Antiques Roadshow.” It’s pretty fascinating. I hope it’s now in a museum somewhere, so more people can enjoy it.

    It definitely sounds like something you’d see on Antiques Roadshow. Maybe you could write to PBS with a description of what you remember, Linda Lee. I’m sure that a fairly good number of people end up selling their treasures when the pros give them a valuation. Maybe it’s in a museum now, or somewhere on public display. — YUR
