Clue/Question:  Some people may have been doubtful about bifocals, but – – –

Pre-Answer:  Thee Words  (6-letters)  WAS  (9-letters)

(Ben was THE Man!  Statesman, inventor, lady’s man!  And, I hear he could hold his liquor too!  Is it any wonder they put him on the C-note?!  I hate trite phrases, but his invention of of bifocals was a . . . game changer!

No new clue words today.  Five of the jumbles came up as new, for me, but we’ve definitely seen “nwenir” sometime ago.  The only one that I even hesitated on was “selyia”.  Katrina struggled a bit with “goeavy”.  Mr. Hoyt gave us an answer letter layout that was a fantastic fifteen letter jumble, but today’s answer came a heck of a lot faster than last Sunday’s!

Another excellent period piece cartoon from Mr. Knurek.  Not sure who the dude in the wig is, but he’s reading what I put up at the top of this spoiler.  Tons of fun, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Everything is going fine. Keeping healthy thus far. Know many people with CoVid and several many who have died from have CoVid. And so sad that funerals have either been private burials or not at all.

    Been very busy. Sooooo many grand jumbles that I’ve just not gotten to to comment on. Or to see what was going on with my Jumble buds.

    Hope you are well and our Jumble family too! Once I get a few more projects finished up, I hope to get back to a normal paced life and have time for me! Thanks for asking. LL

    Sorry to hear about your losses, LL! I’ve known a number of people that have battled it, but – fortunately – no one close to me has died from it. The closest being one of my stepson’s friend’s mother. As far as I know, no one in my family has even tested positive! And, for that I am grateful.

    Take care, LL. We’ll be here waiting for you. — YUR

    So sad to hear that Linda has lost so many to CoVid. apparently, I’ve been fortunate. I don’t personally know anyone who has contracted CoVid-19.

    I wonder if it’s because down here in Georgia we get to spend a little more time outdoors ?

    CoVid-19 is a mystery ! I wish somebody will hurry and figure it out.

    It looks like many of the Southern states actually have the highest positivity rates, lwc. Georgia is ringing in with a 14.9%! New York is at 4.5%. So, you better watch yourself, my friend. — YUR

    Thank you so much lwc! I’m in those Southern states Unc. Just found out I’ve got two friends in CoVid quarantine at a local rehab center. Good grief! One contracted it at a rehab center after a stint in the hospital for kidney failure. Didn’t know she had it and brought it home to her husband. And life goes on.

    COVID-19 seems to be both sly and selective, LindaLee. I think some of us must be genetically less susceptible to it. I heard being blood type O+ helps, and having less Neanderthal DNA is of a benefit. I guess many of us still have some hanging around in there! Also, taking a good amount of vitamin D3 seems to help. I know for a fact that my blood type is O+, and I do take a good amount of vitamin D3. I’ve never had a DNA test, so I don’t know how much Neanderthal I might have in me, despite sometimes being labeled a caveman. — YUR

    Unc, I’ve been considering taking vitamin D, but I’ve learned there’s more than one type: D1 through D5.

    I haven’t found a clear answer which to take: one, or all.

    Check with your doctor, lwc. (My doc likes D3) — YUR
