(Not a bad little pun!  It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen a hot-air balloon cartoon.  Nice job, Mr. Knurek!  No new clue words today, but I thought they were all jumbled well.  I didn’t need to back into any of them though.  The answer letter layout was alright, but it could have been better.  You can see PLA, with an N just another few spots away.  And, there’s a BA and a CK kinda staring you in the face, too.  Maybe Hoyt was a little rushed on this one.  I know he’s got a lot on his plate.  Be kind to your fathers this weekend.  If they’ve passed, remember them fondly.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
