(Not a real head scratcher, but fun.  All of the clue words were old favorites, but each one had a jumbling that was new to me.  The only one to really make me stop and think was “sonata”.  I had to remind myself that it was  an actual word of the English language, of Italian origin, and not the Korean word for mid-size sedan.  Looking at the answer letter layout, I must say that I am impressed.  If I had to solve this puzzle based on the answer letter layout alone, it would have been tough.  Fortunately, for me, the cartoon and the clue/question made the answer a no-brainer.  It’s kind of hard to depict a zombie in a swimming pool, especially with all the accoutrement of goggles, snorkel, swimmies, and a beach ball.  We’re more used to seeing them in raggedy clothing, with usually an eye-ball about to fall out, or some other piece of the face/body about to fall off.  But, it worked.  Hey, a lot of public pools will be closing this weekend, so this is an appropriate end of the traditional – if not actual – Summer Jumble!  Enjoy these last few days and drive carefully on the way home.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
