Answer:  STRAIGHTFORWARD

(And, that’s how I would describe today’s Jumble!  Nothing complicated about it.  For me, it was an effortless solve.  How ’bout you guys?

There were no new clue words today.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new though.  Only “gautoe” has definitely been used before.  I did not have to hesitate on any of these jumbles.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fifteen letter jumble.  I don’t see where it gave anything away.  But, I did see the answer right away.

I love the cartoon.  The road reminds me of the rolling county and state highways I often use when traveling through the Finger Lakes region of Upstate/Western, NY.  “Take me home, country roads.”  Lots of great wineries up there, folks.  And, craft breweries too!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
