Answer:  HOPPY CAMPERS

(So stinky!  But so cute, too!  It’s like right out of a children’s book, or something.  Peter Cottontail is all grown up now, and he’s left Farmer McGregor’s garden, and he’s got kids of his own! And, now he’s taken them camping.  They sure look pretty hoppy . . . er . . . happy!  I never knew that rabbits drank coffee though.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words in Jumbles gone by.  Three of the jumbles/scrambles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “pcyis” in previous Jumbles.  I was able to see all the clue words right away.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic.  I think the quotation marks in the final answer slots were the big clues.

The cartoon is really great.  I like the pup tent, but I think it could be a bit of a contradiction.  Baby rabbits are called kittens, sometimes kits, or kitties even.  They’re not really called bunnies.  And, never pups!  But there’s a great campfire going, and there seems to be a raptor of some sorts on the horizon.  A very satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sierra Club apologizes for founder John Muir's racist views

The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.”   —   John Muir

(The father/co-founder of the Sierra club!  And, the man who helped preserve the Yosemite Valley and Sequoia National Park.  He came about at just the right time, and he influenced a lot of people into valuing and respecting the natural world.  Without his influence, who knows where we would be?!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Eating Tomatoes Wards off Depression

It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”   —   Lewis Grizzard

(Yeah.  Probably eating just about anything homegrown gives you a great feeling of satisfaction.  But if tomatoes are your thing . . . okie dokes!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  STEPPING STONES

(Rolling Stones?  Stone roses?  “I’m Not Your Steppin’ Stone”?  “Heart of Stone”?  “Turn to Stone”?  Stone in Love”?  “Roll Away the Stone”?  “I’ll Turn to Stone”?  “Stone Cold Crazy”?  “Sticks and Stones”?  “Throwing Stones”?  “Stoned Soul Picnic”?  And “Stepping Stone”?  Only a couple of bands, but plenty of songs with stone/s/d in the title!  Some stones kinda stink when you hit them with a hammer, or another stone.  Probably sulfur content?  Does that make this a stinky pun?  Nah!  It’s late and I’m just rambling.

Now it’s the next day and I really should adjust the title.  There!  Done!  There were no new clue words for this particular Jumble.  However, all of this day’s jumbles/scrambles are coming up as new, for me.  They were all pretty quick solves.  The answer letter layout was a flamboyant fourteen letter jumble.  Decently cryptic.  The preponderance of S’s, T’s, N’s and E’s made for the quick solve.

Great cartoon of a landscaping company transforming this lady’s yard.  The guys look like they are skilled at what they’re doing, and the woman seems happy with the work that they’re doing.  Looks like a win/win all around.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
