(Alright, alright.  Not bad.  No need for the ellipsis though!  All tried and true Jumble clue words, with some creative jumbling.  I liked “emblem” the best.  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  You just had to know that some form of the word “drive” was going to be part of the answer.  I like how the guys keep things current and relevant.   I’m sure we’ll see a proper tribute for tomorrow’s Memorial Day Jumble.  But, watching cars go round in circles . . . for hours?  I put that right up there with watching paint dry.  But, nowhere’s close to watching grass grow!  Yer uncle’s a lawn junkie!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
