Answer:  BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS

(A beautiful pun!  I guess this would have worked just as well with handball.  It looks like this was a hard fought match.  I wouldn’t be surprised if this one was a difficult solve for some.

No new clue words this day.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “lagioe” having definitely been used before.  That one tripped me up before, but I was able to see it this time after just a few looks.  It might have taken me a few looks to get “format” too.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic sixteen letter jumble.  I’m sure I saw OFF and WALLS first, then BOUNCING.

Fine racquetball cartoon.  Both of the women look sweaty, but the loser looks really worn out too.  Oh, well.  That’s the way the ball bounces!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You cannot be a leader, and ask people to follow you, unless you know how to follow, too.”   —   Sam Rayburn

(I thought we’d had a Sam Rayburn quote before, but apparently not!  We welcome the one time, long time Speaker of the House of Representatives to the Cryptoquote Club today.  There were some tells in today’s puzzle.  I first picked up on “unless”, which took me to “follow”, then “cannot” and “you”, then “people”.  Fun solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  UP IN THE AIR

(Another relatively simple punswer!  But cute.  I always like talking animal Jumbles.

None of the clue words are new today, but all of the jumbles appear to be so.  I was able to see all of the clue words instantly today.  The answer letter layout was a proper ten letter jumble.  Having the answer broken up into four short words made this an easy solve.

Good looking Canada Geese.  I remember when seeing the geese in flight would signal either, the coming of winter, or the return of spring.  Now, a lot of the geese stay around pretty much all year long.  They’re a bit noisy and messy, but they’re still beautiful animals.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
