Headmasters have powers at their disposal with which Prime Ministers have never yet been invested.”   —   Winston Churchill

(I spun my wheels for quite a while on this one.  I did have the E correct, and I was pretty certain of NEVER.  But I initially thought the J was the I, and the N was the S, and the Z was the A.  I didn’t straighten myself out until I finally recognized the author.  Even so the puzzle took me some work..  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

LANMOS  =  SALMON,  DDDAEP  =  PADDED,  HONKOU  =  UNHOOK,  RVLEEC  =  CLEVER,  COLEAL  =  LOCALE,  SULHBE  =  BUSHEL   —   Giving us:  SLNADDNOKEERCAEBS

Clue/Question:  They ended the concert just before the storm hit, and the audience left with – – –

Answer:  I DON’T HAVE A CLUE      RECKLESS “A-BAND-DONE”

(This could be a stinky pun, or it could be something else.  I don’t know.  It could be a weather pun, or it could be  music pun.  It looks like it’s a Journey concert, for whatever that is worth.  I don’t see any Journey song titles in those letters, but I’m not really their biggest fan, so I don’t know.  Maybe a Journey/weather hybrid answer?  You guys tell me what the answer is.

All of today’s’ clue words are familiar old friends.  No need to disturb ralis95’s Sunday.  Every one of the jumbles is coming up as new today.  I had a little trouble with “unhook”.  The other five came easily to me.  The answer letter layout is a massive seventeen letter jumble.  Even with the quotation marks and the hyphens in the final answer slots, I came up with nothing.

Nice cartoon of an outdoor rock concert.  No one looks too upset that the band won’t be back for an encore.  Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not getting it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  At least I was right that it wasn’t weather or Journey/music related!  I’ll try to do better next time.   —   YUR
