Answer:  LET HIS HAIR DOWN

(A fine pun, indeed!  I feel like I could use a tropical vacation myself!  Oh!  You can sort of sing the “Beach Blanket Bingo” theme to today’s Visual Description!  That could be Frankie Avalon reclining in the beach chair.  I’m sure at 80 he’s – no doubt – rocking a toupée.  Annette Funicello left us a few years ago, and they were just professional boyfriend and girlfriend anyways, so that could be his wife Kathryn.  Don’t you just love these little back stories that I come up with?

All four clue words are Jumble standards.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, while we have definitely seen “thoseo” a few times before.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fourteen letter jumble.  It did a fine job of disguising the answer.

Great tropical beach scene cartoon!  That looks like an Adirondack chair he’s sitting on!  He’s got his feet up on an ottoman, and they both have tropical drinks in their hands.  There’s an obligatory palm tree, and a distant mountain.  They must be fairly far above the beach because that beach umbrella looks miniscule.  And, we all love the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  Another goodie.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
