I’ve been on a diet for two weeks and all I’ve lost is two weeks.”   —   Totie Fields

(I remember Totie!  I used to see her on Mike Douglas and Merv Griffin, when I was a kid.  She was a very funny comedienne.  She died very young.  She got the better of Gene Simmons, of Kiss, on the Douglas Show.  See below.  You don’t have to watch the whole thing, unless you’re a big Kiss fan.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —–   YUR

Answer:  WINGING IT

(Another one of the classic go-to themes!  Wilbur and Orville, back home in their Dayton bike shop, no doubt.  All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends, as well as the jumble “ugatoe”.  The other three jumbles came up as new.  None seemed very tough today.

The answer letter layout was an admirable jumble, but it kinda gave up wing, in a way.  The big clues came up in the cartoon’s dialog, and in the cartoon itself.

Another great period piece, although you still get the feeling it could be the present too.  I’m just guessing that that’s a partial wing prototype in front of Wilbur’s desk.  The lone bicycle wheel looks a little pathetic.  I think I’d take my bike to one of their competitors, if I really needed my bike fixed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
