No man likes to have his intelligence or good faith questioned, especially if he has doubts about it himself.”   —   Henry Brooks Adams

(I dare say that most of us do carry some doubts about our good faith and/or intelligence.  Those of us who don’t are generally arrogant jerks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FROM THE GROUND UP

(Today’s pun landed with a plop . . . of meadow muffins!  Sure it’s stinky, but it’s also good for you.  Assuming you’re the salt of the earth kinda gal/guy.  Since my earlier manure manifesto went over your heads last time, I’ll spare you the lecture on the merits of poop.

All of today’s clue words trusty old friends.  We haven’t seen “mutiny” for a while though.  All four jumbles are coming up as new today.  I didn’t find any of them to be stumpers though.  The answer letter layout was a decent twelve letter jumble, but the leading nature of the clue/question, and the final answer slots, made for a fairly obvious solve.

Always love a good farm scene cartoon.  Beautiful rolling hills, a barn and silo on the horizon.  Combine and tractor, working side by side.  And, a great father and son scene too.  What’s that they’re both holding in their hands tough?  Some kind of bags for the corn???  I’m open to suggestions.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
