Answer:  MANE STREET

(Classic stinky pun!  It’s been a while since we’ve seen a good MANE for MAIN pun.  The last time it could have been a lion’s mane.  What other animals, besides horses and lions, have manes?  Never mind.  I just looked it up.  Giraffes have manes, as do Wildebeests, Warthogs, Gelada baboons, and probably a few others to a lesser degree.  So, there.  More inane mane to clutter your brain!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  All of them were fairly challenging.  The answer letter layout was cryptic ten letter jumble.  The quotation marks and the cowboy brushing his horse’s mane were the big clues for me.

Great Old West town cartoon.  Nice water trough and horses.  And, it looks like the stagecoach just pulled into town.  I think I’ll pop into the Saloon, for a shot of Red Eye!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/11/20

Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.”   —   Benjamin Franklin

(Been a while since we’ve seen a quote from Ben!  This one took me a little time to solve, as I failed to notice what would be THAT, until I was nearly done.  Today, I was able to start with the S’s, O’s, and N’s, and went from there.  A lot of Ben’s quotes are about being a doer.  But, he must’ve really liked to eat, because he was definitely one of our pudgier Founding Fathers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
