This novel is not to be tossed lightly aside, but to be hurled with great force.”   —   Dorothy Parker

(Don’t dance around the issue, Dottie!  Wha’d ja think of my book?  It’s not often that we get the word “hurled” in the Cryptoquote.  Or “tossed” for that matter.  Fun quote!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GET DOWN TO BUSINESS

(A nicely challenging Jumble!  And, one of those literal/figurative puns.  All of the clue words are well established on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  All of today’s jumbles appear to be new.  I thought that “lyasaw”, “dilerv”, and “gebinn” were the best of the bunch.  I always struggle with words like “drivel”, because of the EL versus LE thing.  Fortunately, you can pen it in as LL until it becomes readily apparent.

The answer letter layout was a very impressive seventeen letter jumble.  It did a wonderful job of concealing the answer.  The answer was not obvious to me, but the Ss did lead me to the long word of BUSINESS.  And then, all the pieces fell into place.

Great cartoon of the Grand Canyon!  I’m guessing that the sign, mentioning the bottom of the canyon, and the arrow, was a bit of a bonus clue.  The hotel, at the bottom, reminds me of a Monopoly hotel!  Great fun, huh folks?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
