Answer:  WRENCHED HIS BACK

(Ow!  I’m sure we’ve all been there.  Back pain can really sap you of all your strength.  Definitely no fun!  All of today’s clue words are fairly commonplace.  Who’da thought that common place would be a compound word?  Not this uncle!  All of today’s jumbles appear to be new though.  None of them ripped me up any.

The answer letter layout was a wonderfully cryptic jumble.  None of the answer words jump out at you.  It all boils down to the clues in the cartoon.  The older guy holding the big wrench in one hand, and his back in the other.  Those were pretty big clues!  It was a fun Sunday Jumble though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
