Answer:  CLOSE AT HAND

(Ah!  A figurative AND literal pun!  All depending on how you pronounce the word CLOSE.  The S sound, or the Z sound.  It’s nice to see a kid actually using a physical dictionary, and not just Googling the word, to find various dictionaries, for the definition, and clarifying the spelling.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some kids didn’t know what an actual dictionary looks like.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  But we’ve most definitely seen “gulha” before.  No stumpers for me today.  The answer letter layout was an efficient eleven letter jumble.  I though it did a fine job of hiding the final answer.  I went with HAND first, then tried to decide whether the two letter word was TO or AT.  But seeing CLOSE resolved that minor issue.

Great family scene cartoon.  I went to the Chicago Tribune site and the USA Today site, but neither of those gave me a cartoon big enough – even when clicking to enlarge – to make out the detail of the design on Dad’s t-shirt.  They really weren’t any better than the one in my newspaper.  It doesn’t seem like it’s relevant to the puzzle, but probably just a little inside joke.  I loved the little puppy dog dozing in the corner.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
