Clue/Question:  The warning from the ranger about the Grizzlies was important enough to – – –

(A fine stinky pun!  It seems to me that we’ve had something similar to this answer in the past, but all I remember is that it used the word BEAR in the same way.  But the cartoon and the dialog definitely seem fresh.  Arguably, Grizzlies are the most ferocious, but I’ve also heard that you don’t want to trifle with a polar bear.  They’re getting crankier as their ice floes are disappearing!  Can you blame them???  And actually, you don’t want to get between ANY mama bear and her cubs!  They are all very defensive mothers.

We have seen every one of today’s clue words in previous Jumbles.  However, all four of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  I was able to see them immediately though.  The answer letter layout was another thrilling thirteen letter jumble.  Beautifully cryptic.  Seeing as how the guys danced around the word BEAR, and how the ranger was emphatic in his warning, the final answer came to me right away.

Fine cartoon of a young couple considering a hike in the wilds.  The sign is pretty self explanatory, but the boyfriend seems to be exceedingly slow on the uptake.  For the sake of self preservation, they should definitely go back to the lodge.  Pitchers and catchers report in 18 days, or so, so I hope this Cubs fan follows his girlfriend’s lead.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    You can say that again! Don’t feed the bears! You will never get rid of them. They seem to be growing in population here in New England over the last few years. Over building of the area seems to be the culprit. They don’t come to our property, it was their property to begin with. 🐻. Kind of like the Indians. (Oops. Native Americans). My bad. Damn you Chris Columbus! We are taking away your holiday AND statues too! People are CRAZY these days. 😝

    Speaking of . . ., the folks over there 👉 repeated their performance of y’day by scalping us 18x, 9 by the big chief. 🙋🏻‍♀️ Is it Groundhog Day already? 🦫

    Things have started to settle down (figuratively) now. Not a peep from Jumble Jeff. Color me surprised Unc. Maybe you deleted his apology? You are always the bigger man. Thank you. My wigwam is your wigwam.

    Peace ✌️

    They’re not really growing in population, Smitty. They are just more visible now, due to loss of their natural habitat.

    Just chill with the Jeff issue, Smitty. Despite the hubbub, I still consider the guys as friends. So, to tie it back to this Jumble: Don’t poke the bear. — YUR
