Good health is not something we can buy.  However, it can be an extremely valuable savings account.”   —   Anne Wilson Schaef

(We’ve had a quotation of hers before, but I still struggled with her last name!  There’s not a lot of bio info on her.  Her website says she is 82 years old, but it says Copyright 2016, so maybe she’s older.  She’s the writer of 16 bestselling books, many of them about personal growth and healing.  Good quote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  LOWCATION

(What a base pun!  Truly forlorn and pitiable.  Almost hangdog.  Just kidding, folks.  It just wasn’t the most elevated of puns. 

Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We have definitely seen “coref” before.  It took me a few looks to figure out “udetox”.  All of today’s clue words are old friends.  The answer letter layout was a very good jumble.  Not obvious at all.  Classic classroom cartoon.

That is the trouble with most conventional maps.  They’re not the best representation of the actual world, because – let’s face it – the world is round.  This up/north, down/south, right/east, left/west idea, that conventional maps give us, is misleading.  But, it’s what we’re used to.  Good Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
