Answer:  STABLE ENVIRONMENT

(Gotta love it!  The great out doors, and beautiful horses.  No new clue words today, but four of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen both “rubuna” and “goniri” before.  The answer letter layout was a super jumble.  Very long and very cryptic.  There were some bonus visual clues in the cartoon, which should have helped anyone who might have been struggling to get the answer.  My uncle specializes in building stables.  If you need a stable built in southern California, just let me know!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SPRINGTIME

(Another great literal/figurative pun!  I think they’re fun.  There were no new clue words for this day.  Three of the jumbles did come up as new though.  Hoyt has used “pideme” in the past.  The answer letter layout was a cryptic jumble too.  The cartoon is another one of Knurek’s great period pieces.  It could have come right out of “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  Although, the mom looks a little like Audrey Meadows, to me.  The tire swing, hanging from the tree in the background, is a nice touch.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
