Answer:  NEW LEASE ON LIFE

(I wonder where the original expression comes from?  Getting that second, or just another, chance?  Maybe, like some other common idioms, it came from the pen of William Shakespeare.  You have to admire both the alliteration and the imagery.  A new lease on life!  No new clue words today, however all of the jumbles came up as new.  None of them stumped me at all though.  The answer letter layout was wonderfully cryptic.  Nothing obvious at all.  And, the cartoon and its dialog do a great job of setting things up.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
