Answer:  GRAVEYARD SHIFT

(Very good Jumble!  One of those literal/figurative puns.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “tavcie” some time in the past.  The answer letter layout was another very long one, and also nicely cryptic.  It didn’t give the answer away.  Overall, I thought it was much easier than yesterday’s, but that might have been just me.  The real treat is the cartoon.  Lots of fun and clever tombstones!  Like when Wiley does his Last Words Cemetery.   The one with the light on it has what looks like a guy struggling over a difficult Jumble.  But, the headstone reads:  “Ima Punster”, which should make it a woman!  I’m sure you’ve all figured out it says:  “Played the jumble everyday but not today”.  It does kind of bother me that Jeff killed Ima off at the tender young age of 63!  I’ve got a few years before I get there, but Jeff should know that the bulk of the Jumble fans are very likely north of 63!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Good one all around today. Got the answer right away. And the tombstones were all good: Anne Teak, Claire Bouyant, and what looks like Perl E Gates.
