(Not exactly a jewel of a Jumble, but a reliable mainstay of the word game.  No regular puzzler would skip it!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Although, checking the ralis95 clue word database has become quite a chore, since this most recent Windows 10 “update”.  The PDF file comes up in this ridiculously small font now, and it won’t let me set it to a larger one!  Every one of the jumbles came up as new though.  The answer letter layout was a nice jumble, but it didn’t do much to hide the answer.  Fine cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”   —   A. A. Milne

(It’s kind of a shame that he’s remembered, almost exclusively – by shlubs like me, at least – as the guy who wrote “Winnie-the-Pooh”.  He was actually quite prolific, writing screenplays and plays, novels and non-fiction, poetry, etc., etc.  Didn’t a movie about his success with Pooh just come out recently?  I rarely go to the movies these days.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
