Answer:  WERE LOVESTRUCK

(Very appropriate Valentine’s Day pun!  It took me a few looks to get the final answer.  All the past tense language of the clue/question led me to the first word likely being WERE.  From there I played with the CKLRSTV and EOU to come up with LOVESTRUCK.  It never occurred to me that lovestruck was a single word.  And, what’s funny is WordPress is allowing it in Answer, but it just flagged it here – twice – as being misspelled!  So, it looks like the Limeys – sorta – agree with me!  LOL!

All of today’s clue words are old friends.  Five of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  Hoyt has definitely used “cirwek” before though.  It took me a few looks to see both “vendor” and “format”.  The answer letter layout was a challenging fourteen letter jumble.  After assuming WERE, I had to write out the remaining consonants and vowels in alpha order to get to LOVESTRUCK.  Third time!

Cute cartoon of Cupid attacking people in a city park.  Could be NYC’s Washington Square Park.  Does Chicago have a park with an arch???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
