Answer:  WITH OPEN ARMS

(Man created boats because there’s a lot of scary sh . . . er . . . stuff in the ocean!  And should it be unexpected, or unsuspecting???  No, sir.  Keep me on good ol’ terra firma, or C-Deck.  Preferably at the pool-bar.  Suction cups, ink, teeth . . . egads!  Not without me can o’ spinach!

It looks like yesterday’s Jumble must have been tougher than I thought!  Plenty of queries came in on “DINO-MIGHT”.  Today, we actually have a new clue word, in “shame”.  It’s surprising that it took this long for the word to be used, but that’s the way it goes sometimes.  It can now be added to the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the other jumbles are new today, with “cewit” having been used before.  I had a little trouble getting “rodent”.  At first I was seeing “tendor”, which might be Latin, but definitely isn’t English.  As soon as I realized that was wrong, I saw “rodent”.  Very nifty answer letter layout.  A beautiful jumble that gave nothing away.  The cartoon speaks for itself.  That lady is freaking out!  So much so she has spit out her snorkel!  Actually, octopuses are fascinating creatures and are extremely intelligent.  They’ve been on this planet a whole lot longer than we have.  And, if we don’t fish them into extinction, or completely destroy their habitats, they’ll likely outlive us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
