Answer:  SIGN IT OVER TO HER

(Wow!  This one really had me going, for a while.  Maybe the guys were trying to shut me up a little.  JKLOL! 

I thought that the jumble “tauish” was positively diabolical!  No, LindaLee is not writing today’s comments.  I had to back into it, and that wasn’t easy, because without that H & S . . . figuring out the final Answer was definitely not easy for me.   I also thought that both “vaiyar” and “tangee” were fairly challenging jumbles.  All of them appear to be new jumbles.

The answer letter layout was a killer jumble.  Nothing obvious about it, to me.  The cartoon’s dialog led me to think one of the answer words might be REST, so I was thinking REST IT OVER . . .   I finally focused in on her signing the sales papers/contract.  Then the bells went off, and I saw the final answer.  Figuring out what to do with the S & H still took me some time to figure out “hiatus”!  Great self-promoting Sunday Jumble!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I haven’t seen “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” yet, but I want to see it.  I did just see “The Post”, and it was good, but . . .   —   YUR
