Answer:  FAR CRY FROM IT

(Ooh, a beautiful stinky pun!  I love it!  I’ve flown first class a couple of times.  It was a long time ago though.  I didn’t have to pay for it!  It was back in the days when airlines frequently overbooked their flights.  Both times I was flying solo, and I gave up my seat so a family could sit together, and they bumped me up to first class.  It was very sweet.  I don’t think that could happen in today’s airline environment.

We have a new clue word today, in “unify”.  Ralis95 will have to update his world famous clue word database again!  All of today’s jumbles came up as new, and I thought all of them had a certain degree of difficulty.  The one that I had the least difficulty with was “rfteer”.  The answer letter layout was a great twelve letter jumble.  But, I had less trouble getting the final answer than the first three jumbles.

Fine airline cartoon.  Babies crying on a plane are the worst!  But, there’s not much you can do about it.  Ear plugs, or noise canceling headphones, are about all I can think of.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
