Strange that a man who has wit enough to write satire should have folly enough to publish it.”   —   Benjamin Franklin

(Wow!  What timing!  Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something.  Ol’ Ben could not have envisioned the internet, or bloggers . . . like me.  But, he knew of men’s follies.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GOOD ATMOSPHERE

(Just stay away from the potato salad!  This was a very ambitious Jumble.  Maybe not as ambitious as sending a red Tesla roadster on a Falcon Heavy rocket, complete with an astronaut mannequin in the front seat, playing David Bowie’s “Life on Mars?”, off towards the planet Mars, but still ambitious.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Yet, all of the jumbles came up as new.  It took me a few looks to come up with “degree”.  I was seeing dredge and edger, before the right word came to me.  The other clue words I saw right away.  The answer letter layout was a dandy of a jumble.  Definitely not obvious.  The maître d’ asking for the climate helmet, and the lady liking “the vibe” were the big giveaways to the ten-letter word.  ODOG gave me GOOD.  Jeff’s drawing was both impressive and amusing.  The guy with the pilsner glass looks like George Jetson, but the lady with the champagne flute doe not look like Jane, to me.   If Jane finds out, George might be sleeping with Astro when he gets home.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
