Answer:  PRESENTED

(I don’t know guys.  I think this particular Jumble answer may have been re-gifted!  But, it’s a good, stinky pun anyway.  Reminds me of Christmas at my house . . . twenty some years ago.

No new clue words on this day.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “sreyds” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It was nicely cryptic.

Great cartoon.  Mom and Dad are clearly not awake yet.  The kids no doubt got them up at the crack of dawn.  I don’t mind that aspect of Christmas being in my past!  We’ve also gotten to the point where we mostly give gift cards.  There are a few wrapped presents, but nowhere’s like the old days.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Maybe we should all make this our primary New Year’s resolution!  Saving money, losing 20 lbs, and going to the gym more often should be further down the list.  Right???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SET THE BAR HIGH

(A lofty pun, indeed.  And, a towering view of Chicago.  Reminds me of when I use to go for drinks at Windows on the World, back in the ’80s and ’90s.  Good times.

It looks like none of today’s clue words are new.  However, all of their jumbles are.  They were all simple solves for me.  The answer letter layout was an interesting ten letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.

Nice cartoon of the bar on high.  It looks very festive with the Christmas lights.  Bet the drinks there cost a pretty penny.  I prefer to drink in dive bars, with regular folk.  Be well and do good, friends.  Merry Christmas!)   —   YUR
