A good many car drivers don’t need seat belts as much as they need straight jackets.”   —   Source Unknown

(Don’t get me started on bad drivers!  I could go on for days.  Although, pretty much all of us, at some point in time, have been guilty of some kind of lapse of judgment behind the wheel.  But, when it’s the other guy . . . they’re an idiot!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NEIGHBORS

(Great stinky pun!  And, only two days removed from manure!  Horse people, especially, don’t let their noses get out of joint by the smell of manure.  Like napalm in the morning, to them it . . . smells like . . . victory!  LOL!

No new clue words today!  Everyone can rest easy.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “geehd” definitely having been used before.  All the clue words came to me right away.  The answer letter layout was another thing!  It’s a fine nine letter jumble.  But, the phrasing of the clue/question was a little awkward, for me.   And, it didn’t exactly lead me down the bridle path.  I thought either the first half of the answer was REINS, or the second REIN.  But GBHOS and GBHO made no sense at all.  I also thought something RING for both sides of the answer.  At this point, I can’t even tell you exactly how I finally saw NEIGH, but I did.  And, that’s all that matters.

Cute horsie cartoon.  I guess the friendly folks in the background were what finally clued me in to the answer.  For me, this was a challenging Jumble.  Did any of you guys wrangle at all with this one, or was it just me?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
