Answer:  STOOD STILL

(Reminds me a little of the Darlings from “The And Griffith Show”.  That’s going back a bit!  Of course, I could always claim I only know them from MeTV.  LOL!  It also brings to mind Granny, from “The Beverly Hillbillies”.  She had a still down by the ce-ment pond, where she made her tonic, aka her “Rheumatiz” medicine.  Good stuff.

All of today’s clue words are kissin’ cousins.  Not a stranger among them.  Three of their jumbles appear to be unrelated, with only “atotot” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a carefully distilled ten-letter jumble.  A subtle corn nose, with hints of kerosene.   Or, perhaps turpentine.  It kind of burns your taste buds, so you might not taste . . . anything.

Great rural cartoon.  I think they’ve all been sampling the corn squeezin’s.  They all have that million mile stare.  I don’t care for that kind of buzz.  Just make mine a beer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the inner city.”   —   Ron Finley

(The Gangsta Gardener, or the Guerilla Gardener!  I think I saw a piece on him on “CBS Sunday Morning”.  Great guy.  Gets inner city kids – and other folk – into gardening.  Gives them purpose, and pride . . .  and produce!  Today, we welcome Ron to the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
