Answer:  LAST SO LONG

(I’ll bet at least one of them was hoping for a clean break!  LOL!  Prolonging these kind of things can be awkward, and even uncomfortable.  What if one of them really has to fart?!  Nobody wants to fart at such a tearful, tender moment!  Talk about your lasting memories!  Well, I guess that could be another way to bring tears to one’s eyes.  Yikes!

Yeah.  Of course we’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  They’re all members in good standing of the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles were reruns too.  Only “hssol” was coming up as new for me.  Nice seeing “noggin” again.  It’s been a while.  The answer letter layout was a thoughtful ten letter jumble.  I thought it did a great job of disguising the final answer.

Fine cartoon of the pair of lovers, standing hand-in-hand on the train platform.  It looks to me like she is the one who will be departing . . . as soon as the train gets there.  I wonder if she’s headed to Barcelona, or Madrid?  Fun Friday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
