Answer:  PREDICTABLE

(Plan a picnic!  Followed closely by . . . washing your car.  Very fun, though not really a pun.  We have yet another new clue word, in “rarity”.  I was surprised, because I thought we’d seen this word a month or so ago.  But, if it did maybe it was after ralis95  posted the latest edition of his clue word database.  Only the jumble for “abide” was definitely used before.  The answer letter layout was a super jumble.  The clue/question made the answer fairly obvious.  Fun cartoon.  Where can I get some of that Jumble wine?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PET PROJECT

(. . . Charlie Brown!  So, old Chuck and the Little Red Haired Girl got together and settled down.  Very cool.  Snoopy’s grown a lot, too.  And, it looks like he’s getting a major upgrade on his doghouse.  Very amusing, guys.

We have yet another new clue word today, in “pompom”.  More work for ralis95!  We’ve seen the jumble for “juice” before, but the other two were new, from what I could see.  The answer letter layout was swell, but I didn’t have any problems today!  Great cartoon.  Fantastic way to start the first work-day of Daylight Saving’s Time.  I was tired all day, so be careful folks.  They say that traffic accidents increase by 17% during the first week of DST.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He dreamed he was eating shredded wheat and woke up to find the mattress half gone.”   —   Fred Allen

(This puzzle was tough, too!  I suspected the Z was the E, but I couldn’t rule out the K.  I had to look at the author to confirm my inclination.  That’s always the last resort for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Being cool is being your own self, not doing something that someone else is telling you to do.”   —   Vanessa Hudgens

(Very pretty girl.  I guess all you have to do is make a few teeny-bopper movies, and BrainyQuote will devote a page to every banal thing you say.  LOL!  Maybe they help out some of the kid fans.  That’s enough, I guess.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
