Clue/Question:  When the hikers came across the poisonous snake on the trail – – –

Answer:  IT RATTLED THEM

(Wow!  A nice, long, punny answer!  There were no new clue words today, however three of the four jumbles came up as new.  The only one we’ve definitely seen before is the only one that gave me any trouble.  And that was “dimmue”.  I had to back into it.  Actually, I chose to back into it.  I’m a little lazy these days.  If I don’t get a clue word after a few looks I go on to the next one, and then the big answer.  Of course, this only works when the answer is not terribly tough, like today’s.  The cartoon snake is clearly a rattler, but they were very careful to dance around that by calling it a “poisonous snake”.  And of course, it’s very wise to carefully dance around a rattle snake.  The answer letter layout was tremendous.  It didn’t give anything away.  No, it was the great cartoon, and the set up of the clue/question that made the answer unmissable for me.  Be well and do good, friends.  Stay away from those rattle snakes!)   —   YUR
