Answer:  MAKE INROADS

(A very clever pun.  Fairly challenging.  I mourn the loss of wildlife habitat though.  The creatures of the forest are being forced to become suburbanites!  I grew up in a slightly older suburb, that was surrounded by golf courses.  When I was a kid, all we would ever see were squirrels and chipmunks and various birds.  Maybe, the occasional raccoon.  But, in the suburb I’ve lived in for the past 30 plus years, I fairly regularly see deer, woodchucks, rabbits, raccoons, foxes, and coyotes!  And, of course, squirrels, chipmunks and various birds.  And, a few miles from me, there are the occasional bear sightings.  More than a little crazy for being only 30 miles from NYC!

No new clue words today.  Some words we haven’t seen in a while though.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “warnd” sometime before.  The answer letter layout was a cryptic eleven letter jumble.  I can see some of you struggling to get the final answer.

Fine construction cartoon.  The sign was kind of a bonus clue.  I hope these guys leave some of these older trees.  A lot of developers just plow everything into the ground.  Sad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The nature of storytelling, since the dawn of man, has a beginning, a middle and an end.”   —   Matthew Gray Gubler

(I foresee Matthew’s next role as the new Captain Obvious, in the Hotels.com commercials.  As you can see, Matt is a very serious individual.  Actually, the kid is quite accomplished.  And, I mean besides playing the part of Dr. Spencer Reid, on “Criminal Minds”.  And, now he can add member of the world famous Cryptoquote Club to his extensive resumé!  Welcome aboard, Matty!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
