Answer:  A LOT TO KEEP TRACK OF

(Wow!  A 17 letter, six word answer!  I think that might be some kind of record.  None of today’s clue words are new, and only three of the jumbles appear to be.  We’ve seen “aaappy”, “garfeo”, and “toshoe” before.  I had a bit of difficulty solving “aartek”, but I saw “trowel” from “rewlto” right away.

The answer letter layout was one of Hoyt’s jumble masterpieces!  For me at least, it hid the key word TRACK very well.  I figured on A LOT TO, but at first I thought the sixth word was going to be AT.  After writing out KCPFREKEO I saw my error, and what the two big words should be.

Great cartoon of the track and the race.  I think it’s going on as I type this post.  I might get a chance to tune in to it.  Right after I finish watching some paint dry . . . and some grass grow.  Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Any man who has had the job I’ve had and didn’t have a sense of humor wouldn’t still be here.”   —   Harry Truman

(One of our very few man of the people Presidents!  Talk about having “greatness thrust upon them”!  He was Vice President for less than 3 months before he had to take over, following FDR’s death.  And, less than 4 months later he had to make the decision of using the atomic bomb, to bring about a swifter end to the war with Japan.  And he had to deal with Stalin and Churchill for partitioning Europe, following Hitler’s defeat.  And, deal with Communist China and Korea, and a general who though he knew best!  That’s not all, but that’s quite a bit, for a former haberdasher from Independence, MO.  The man was also known for a lot of great quotes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
