There’s nothing so kingly as kindness, and nothing so royal as truth.”   —   Alice Cary

(I’d never heard of her, but I’m digging this quote!  Also, she’s far more fetching than ol’ George.  Kindness and truth are two of the noblest attributes going.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for patootie

Answer:  APPTITUDE

(A 21st Century pun!  I liked it lots.  I can see how this might have tripped up some of you.  There were no new clue words, however all the jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was a really cute jumble.  It reminded me a little of patootie!  Look up that word, you Limey turds!  LOL!  Great cartoon.  The tablet and the cell phones, charging on the table were a nice touch.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Delicious Autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”   —   George Eliot

(Good ol’ George!  Not exactly fair of face.  Oh, is this a form of body shaming???  And, what if it is?  Get over it!  Anybody who loves Autumn – like me – is alright in my book.  But hey, she was actually a Monday’s child!  So anyway, I love her quote.  But, I’m not sure that it would be possible to seek successive autumns, by flying about the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DREADMILL

(Aah!  A great stinky pun!  I love a good play on words.  Don’t you?  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, yet all of the jumbles came up as new.  I waffled a bit on “mambo”, because I considered the snake, the mamba, but I was spelling it momba.  But, then I remembered that Hoyt does his utmost best to come up with jumbles/words that can only be spelled one way.  I thought the answer letter layout was a nicely challenging jumble too.  You had to use the quotation marks, the cartoon’s dialog, and the ladies’ faces to come up with the answer.  I think once you get into these cardio exercises, you actually start to look forward to them.  It’s more the initial anxiety you have to get over.  Because of my knees, I prefer the eliptical.  This reminds me that I have to get my fat butt to the gym.  It’s been too long.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.”   —   Guy Fieri

(Usually not turducken, but sure, people do get together to eat.  Too bad it doesn’t necessarily result in peacefulness.  But, good food is good food.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for chihuahua in a jacket

Answer:  CLOSE AT HAND

(Very nice pun.  Not terribly stinky.  No new clue words, yet all of the jumbles came up as new.  It took me a few looks to come up with “enroll”.  The others I saw right away.  A very cryptic answer letter layout.  It took a few looks for me to see the answer.  Very nice domestic, wintry cartoon.  I like the little jacket on the dog.  Chihuahua?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
