Answer:  FOR INSTANTS

(Now, that is one fine, aromatic instance of wordplay!  I whole edly approve of today’s Jumble!  None of today’s clue words are new, but three of the jumbles appear to be.  We have seen the jumble “itaxfe” some time in the past.  The only jumble that gave me pause was “teerb”.  Maybe, because “beret” is – originally – a French word.  And, maybe because I once had a girlfriend who wore a Raspberry Beret . . . a little before the song came out.

The answer letter layout was a well thought out jumble.  I found there nothing to be obvious.  Does that sound like good English to you???  Hmm!

Nice cartoon of a middle-aged couple, starting out their day in the kitchen.  Kind of a strange looking kettle, pouring hot water into two self-promoting mugs.  The bonus clue is the name on the can:  Quick Coffee!  The little scoop in the can was a nice touch.  The wife/woman is doing SOME kind of puzzle.  Could it be the Sudoku?  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Kudos to those who wrote in to tell me that the other prop was Groucho-type glasses!  The cartoon has already been recycled, but it sounds logical to me!     YUR
