Answer:  ROCKSOLID

(I’m just a big, dumb kid at heart!  I haven’t really seen any cartoons in quite a while, but I have always been a huge fan of The Flintstones!  I know it was a cartoon semi-sendoff to The Honeymooners, but for me it was “original”.  It’s so iconic.  It’s one of those old shows where just about everybody knows all the lyrics to the theme song.  Just like the Mister Ed song and the theme to Gilligan’s Island.  For better or worse, I am a product of the television generation.

There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I didn’t find any of them to be difficult though.  The answer letter layout was nicely jumbled, but the answer wasn’t exactly a big challenge for me.  Just about everything in The Flintstones was rock this, or stone that.  Even the daughter was named Pebbles!  I’m kind of surprised that celebrity couples haven’t picked up on this name for their daughters.  What with fruit names, number names, animal names, colors and various and sundry inanimate objects, you’d think that some celeb might name their kid Pebbles.  Believe me, they have thought up a lot worse!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
