Answer:  TOOTH AND NAIL

(That’s a good, stinky pun!  None of the clue words are new, but two of the jumbles appear to be.  We have definitely seen “innoo” and “shoti” before.  I’ll skip my joke about the urban – phonetically speaking – slang for a girlfriend, because it must be an old joke by now.  The answer letter layout was wondrous!  Nothing given away.  The cartoon is great, with its stack of 2 X 4s, blueprints on the table, some stray nails on the floor, and the carpenter in the background with nails in his mouth as he hammers one into a board.  Also, the dentist is holding a copy of her trade magazine, so Jeff has covered both the teeth and the nails!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Burn piles are the made beds of the yard.  Nothing tidies up a yard like fire.”   —   Rheta Grimsley Johnson

(Definitely not a city girl!  If you had asked me, prior to my posting this, if this was the first Rheta Johnson quote we’ve had, I would’ve said:  Yes!  But, her name was already in my list of Tags, so I guess we’ve had one of her quotes before.  WordPress is pretty good about linking posts with the same author.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
