Answer: BRIDE IDEA

(At the very least a bride-to-be idea!  Yeah, this is a cute pun.  I wonder if the entire bridal party is going to be on horseback too?  That could be fun.  The person carrying the bridal gown train would have to watch her step though!

There were no new clue words today.  However, all of today’s jumbles appear to be new.  For some strange reason, I originally wrote down FORADE!  I guess I was thinking it had to do with FORAY, or something.  But as I looked at the nine letter jumble, that was the answer letter layout, I quickly reassessed that decision.  I don’t know why FEDORA didn’t come to me right away.  It’s one of Hoyt’s favorite clue words!  The quotation marks were a big clue to getting the final answer.

Cute horsey/ranch cartoon.  I was a little surprised they were at the “Scramble Ranch”, and not the Jumble Ranch.  But I guess they just wanted to mix things up a bit.  Have a great weekend everyone!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Gwendolyn Brooks' "We Real Cool" and "The Bean Eaters" - Owlcation

To be in love is to touch with a lighter hand.  In yourself you stretch, you are well.”   —   Gwendolyn Brooks

(I know I always considered being in love to be a huge positive.  I’m guessing this is a line from one of her poems.  Does anyone know for sure?  Ms. Brooks was the first African American to win a Pulitzer Prize, way back in 1950, for her poem “Annie Allen”.  And, among her many honors, she was Poet Laureate of Illinois for 32 years.  And today she is being inducted into the Cryptoquote Club!  The honors just keep on coming!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
