Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.”   —   Andy Goldsworthy

(I couldn’t agree more.  Even though I’m now 60 years old, and I know I’ll have to shovel the stuff, I still greet each snowstorm with the excitement of a child.  I hope I never grow old, in this respect!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WADING ROOM   Whoops!  This is what happens when yer uncle jumps to conclusions!  I didn’t even refer to the answer letters.  Not even while discussing the answer letter layout, where it should have hit me!  The correct second word to the answer – as many of you have pointed out to me – is:  AREA

(A beautiful, stinky pun!  Hoyt should be very proud of himself.  All of today’s clue words are old favorite.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have seen “galee” before.  I loved the answer letter layout, as it was a commendably cryptic jumble.  Jeff’s cartoon was very clever with the waterfowl in the kiddie pool.  Good likeness of Walt Disney, waiting with what looks to be a young Donald Duck.  I also liked the the egret with the bum leg.  The magazine with the mallards on the cover was also a nice touch.  A very fun Monday Jumble.  Be well, friends.  And, always strive to do good.)   —   YUR
