Pick up the battle and make it a better world just where you are.  It can be better, but it’s up to us.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Kind of a spin on:  “Think globally, act locally”.  Don’t think that you’re too small and unimportant to make a difference.  All of our collective actions can better the world.  So, keep doing good, folks!)   —   YUR

Answer:  ROWED TRIP

(Now, THAT is one stinky pun!  But, I liked it!  I didn’t see it right away though.  At first I thought the first word might be POWER, but that left me with IRTD, and POWER DIRT didn’t make a whole lot of sense.  But, the IRTD showed me the way to TRIP.  So, now the quotation marks made more sense, and I followed the “ROWED”.

All of the clue words are old favorites, while three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “glueed” in the past.  It took me a few looks before I could come up with the simple “robin”.  And, as always, I didn’t immediately see “poetry”.  But, I got it much faster than in the past!  David’s answer letter layout was a marvelously cryptic jumble!

The cartoon smacks of “Hagar the Horrible”, with an Olga replacing Helga.  But, it didn’t look like Jeff was going for a full send up to the comic strip.  He kept it just generic enough.  I think Jeff really wanted the Vikings to be in the Super Bowl!  The photo shows the Vikings new Offensive Coordinator.  Lots of fun, this Jumble, and fairly challenging.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
