Answer:  TOOT HIS OWN HORN

(Nice way to ease us into the week.  No new clue words.  Three new jumbles though.  We’ve seen “nihkt” before.  Fun answer letter layout.  Not familiar with the band.  Maybe Jeff can clue us in.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    First Jumble that I have done in 7 months. Cancer and the treatments left me to foggy brained to do them. I am finally getting my senses back and ready to jump back into the game!

    Welcome back, Joe Key! I hope those exhaustive grueling treatments have kicked your cancer down the road, and you are right as rain again. You have my admiration, sir. You are made of the toughest stuff!

    Welcome back Joe Key, from one cancer survivor to another. The brain fog & loss of concentration is tough, just keep on keepin’ on. The jumble & our Unc are here to help. Warmly, Barb Taylor

    I know this is sometime back, but I never delete a post from our Unc until I have read it. When I saw Joe’s post, I wanted to respond.

    Praying all is still going well with you Joe!

    I remember when mama was going through chemo and radiation for her stage 3 throat cancer. She had always worked the jumble and the crossword, and to see her struggling with something that usually came so easily for her was heartbreaking. I remember the day I picked up the newspaper and the crossword and jumble were completed, in very legible handwriting! It was such a thrill and blessing! I’m glad you are getting into that space!!!

    Take care all! LL

    Thank you, LindaLee! That was very kind of you. It has been a while again since we’ve heard from Joe Key. Drop us a line, buddy! Let us know how you are. — YUR

    I am doing fine just too busy for the Daily Jumbles. Dealing with the cancer has redirected my life and my prioritizes. Thank you all for your well wishes. Without people who cared about me it is doubtful that I would be here today. God bless you all the way He has blessed me.
