OUTHY  =  YOUTH,  SBOIN  =  BISON,  GHNTEL  =  LENGTH,  BUAFIL  =  FIBULA   —   Giving us:  OTINGHFA

Clue/Question:  He struggled putting up the wallpaper until he got this.

Answer:  THE HANG OF IT

(Not bad!  I was able to BREEZEyesterday’s answer – through the first three clue words, but then got hung up on “fibula”.  I wrote out 13 different attempts at unscrambling BUAFIL, but to no avail.  13 is not really all that many.  I guess I’m just getting a little lazy, because I quickly jumped to the cartoon, to take a stab at the answer, with the letters from the first three clue words.  Fortunately, the answer was pretty easy, and I figured out I needed an F and an A in the circles for clue word number four.  Not a lot of words – I can’t even think of one, right now – end with a single F, so I thought: starts with F and ends with A.  That’s when “fibula” hit me.  Kind of ironic, when you consider that I broke my fibula this past January!  The only bone I’ve ever broken in my entire life!  But, I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of you had trouble getting that word, as well as me.  With three vowels, I’m sure some of you looked for a word that might start with a vowel.  Only three of my thirteen attempts did so, because the three consonants didn’t really lend themselves to that kind of word.  But, I’m beginning to babble, so I better wrap it up.  Be well, my friends, and try to do good.)   —   YUR
