Answer:  FOR OLD TIMES’ SAKE

(I like it!  Kind of a double stinky pun.  The guy is clearly old, and his job dealt with time.  Very good.  No new clue words, but most of the jumbles seem to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “windos” before, but it’s also one of the two jumbles that gave me pause.  The other was “guheno”.  I thought all were good though.  The answer letter layout was excellent.  Nothing given away there.  And, a swell cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
