Answer:  UNFLAPPABLE

(This one has an air of originality.  It didn’t come off as a retread, like some of them do.  None of today’s clue words are new, but all of the jumbles were.  None of them tripped me up though.  The answer letter layout was a great, cryptic jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  The cartoon is a great backyard scene.  Nice yappy dog, and a very handsome cardinal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Agreed. Challenging long word for me. I needed over two minutes on the bonus word and had to crunch out trial-and-error combinations of letters until I got close enough to -FLAP- for the light bulb to come on. I coulda woulda shoulda tried common UN- and -ABLE since it was obviously an adjective, but didn’t; for some reason I fixated on -FUL long after it was time to move on.

    Well done guys!

    I bet some solvers got stuck on UPHILL. I did years ago the first time I saw that one in Jumble, but not today. There are gotcha six-letter Jumble words that begin or end in U-P (uproar, pileup, or 5-letter erupt), so it’s worth looking online at those lists, though of course U and P aren’t always adjacent (such as other potential gotcha “porous”).

    David! Two minutes. Impressive. Yes, UPHILL got me stuck for a bit. I was doing dishes and it hit me — UPHILL! The solve took more than two minutes, for sure!!!! Thank goodness FLAP caught my eye.

    Another grand puzzler!

    Unc, gorgeous birds! I love cardinals!

    Take care! LL
