(A super Sunday Jumble!  With a literal/figurative pun.  A very entertaining and fairly challenging Jumble, with lots to like.  There should be no complaints today.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  However, all six jumbles appear to be new.  Three of them were very easy, but the other three gave me varying amounts of trouble.  I had to skip over both “nyerst” and “nftian”.  Got “occupy” right away.  Then, I had to skip over “trmeau”, but got both “annual” and “borrow” right away.  Of the three toughies, “infant” came after a few looks.  “Mature” took much longer than I would like.  And, I thought I might have to back into “sentry”, but I saw it after writing out “synert”.  The answer letter layout was a splendid sixteen letter jumble.  In and of itself, it gave nothing away.  For me, the combination of the leading nature of the clue/question, and the length of the two final answer slots, made the final answer come to me immediately.

The cartoon is a hoot!  Reminds me of the Commander’s Club at the airport, with critters.  A beautifully maned lion, an African elephant, a hyena and some kind of antelope – possibly a rhebok.  Oh, and there’s some kind of bird taking a snooze, in a nest on a shelf.  What’s not to like?!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I made a grocery run this morning for my buddy who’s tending after his wife, who is fighting off COVID-19.  I maintained a safe distance.  We’ve all got to do our parts, folks!   —   YUR

    Thank you (again) for providing a needed break in the day when any distraction is welcome. My wife and I “stay-in-place” as much as possible. Still need to get a few items at least once a week. So nice of you to help a neighbor. So this Jumble did not take long. I had to spend a few minutes on 2 of the words but the solution was quick. I saw COMFORTS quickly and CREATURE was then obvious. Take care everyone.

    So, I got to this Jumble yesterday – 1/30. I looked at the jumbled words and struck out! Absolutely no words came to me. I don’t think that has ever happened before.

    Picked it back up this morning and took on the first word. I was diagramming it out and when I got to ESYNTR I saw SENTRY. Had to diagram INFANT out a bit too then started looking at IN words, INFANT fell into place. Should have done that first. The rest of the jumbled words popped up for me, and the answer came quickly too… thank goodness! LL
