(There’s a lot to like in today’s Jumble!  The clue words were all jumbled very well.  I had the most difficulty with “floppy”.  I didn’t have to write it out, but it did take some thought.  As it turns out, “floppy” is also going to be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database!  I like the word “flick”.  I don’t think we’ve seen it used in the Jumble in quite a while.  Welcome back, “flick”!  LOL!  The answer letter layout was super.  Nothing given.  You just had to understand the nature of Velcro in order to get today’s answer.  From the one comment I’ve seen, so far today, it might not have been obvious to everyone.  The cartoon was very informative.  Burdock burs were de Mestral’s inspiration for inventing Velcro.  I have loads of experience removing them from my dogs’ coats!  Nice job, guys!  That’s it, folks.  I spent too much time opining on today’s cryptoquote, so I’m going to cut this a little shorter today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
