(*Changed back to Sleepy Hollow, NY in 1996.  This is a great pun!  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  And, all the jumbles were great, although I didn’t struggle with any of them.  The answer letter layout gave away nothing.  It was the Fifth Jumble!  Belated condolences to the Sir George Martin family.  Hey, he was also Knighted in 1996!  So much to like in the cartoon.  But there is a bit of an inconsistency.  She asks him if he’d like “some more” coffee, but there is NO coffee cup/mug on the table, nor in her hand!  Instead, she has a pot of coffee in one hand, and a frying pan with an egg – kinda stuck to it, considering the angle of the pan – in the other, when clearly he already has a plate of food in front of him!  But, the hearth, the horse, the axe, the period costumes, and the Jack-O-Lantern more than make up for the inconsistency!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
