Answer:  FLAG ON A POLE

(The South Pole, that is!  I appreciate historical themed Jumbles.  I’m a big history buff.  We had no new clue words today, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen both “lirgl” and “podta” in the past.  “Adopt” spells out in alphabetical order.  I thought today’s answer letter layout was the most cryptic jumble Hoyt has come with in quite a while.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Jeff’s cartoon was relatively simple, yet very effective.  I really liked the steamy breath, and the way Roald Amundsen is patting one of the sled dog‘s head.  Can you believe he died a few weeks short of his 56 birthday???  He looks like he’s easily 70 something!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
