Answer:  SEALED THE DEAL

(Beautiful!  Topical too!  There’s been frost on the pumpkin some mornings, and winter is just around the corner.  Will it be mild, or will it be wild?  So many conflicting predictions.  We’ll all just have to wait and see, I guess.  No new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  I can verify that we’ve seen both “badie” and “bemmel” used here before.  The answer letter layout made for a wonderful jumble.  I don’t think it gave a hint to the answer.  Before I read the clue/question I thought the cartoon was about selling replacement windows!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
