Answer:  HAVING A BLAST

(Beautiful.  A very fun pun.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a work of art.  A Jumble masterpiece.  The cartoon does a great job of capturing a beloved aspect of this country’s birthday celebration.  Be well . . . play safe, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  LOWDOWN

(I like it! A very appropriate pun.  No new clue words, but all the jumbles were new today.  The answer letter layout had me stumped, for a minute or two.  Great cartoon.  Been using computers and internet quite a bit lately.  Be well and do good, friends.  Have a safe and happy Independence Day weekend!)   —   YUR

Answer:  HOME SWEET HOME

(I love a good literal pun!  None of today’s clue words were new, but three of the jumbles were.  We’ve definitely had the one for “weasel” before.  I still can’t spell “weasel”.  I always want to make it LE!  The answer letter layout was pretty special.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  I thought the cartoon was fun.  I guess sugar cane is native to the tropics, while sugar beets grow in much of the northern areas.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  READ UP ON IT

(Very good!  I had to think a bit on this answer.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were new.  We’ve seen the one for “onward” before.  The answer letter layout was actually pretty challenging.  A great jumble in its own right.  And, a very scenic cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DIVE RIGHT IN

(Aaaw.  How sweet!  Syd as a little kid.  And, Mom and Dad are looking sprier too.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were.  We’ve seen the one for “viable” before.  The answer letter layout was alright, but not great.  The cartoon was definitely great though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

45 rpm record The image is a picture of a 45 rpm record from the mid-1950s The record label contains no copyright notice of any kind. It contains a notice, “MGM–Device of Lion’s Head–Reg. U. S. Pat. Off.” In the picture, the element, though recognizable, is small and of low quality and I do not think its use as an illustration of a 45 rpm record in an encyclopedia article can be considered infringing.

Answer:  GROOVY

(Dig it, Daddy-O!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I had to back into “origin”!  The answer letter layout was swell, but it couldn’t hide the answer.  The cartoon is very cute.  Bouffant hairdos, poodle skirt, bobby socks, and saddle shoes.  Good stuff!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTTS

(A nice long answer!  Can’t remember when we last saw a 16 letter answer!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic jumble that gave nothing away.  The clue/question itself, and the great cartoon, gave this one to me.  Such a filthy habit!  It’s messy and stinky, besides being totally unhealthy.  My Mom wouldn’t have Emphysema and COPD, and probably not Osteoporosis, if she hadn’t been a lifetime smoker.  If you smoke, take it from today’s character and choose to quit.  Before it’s too late.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
