CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN THEY BUILT THE NEW ROUNDABOUT, THEY PULLED OUT —

ATEOLLSPHTS = ALL THE STOPS

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday!  Today’s puzzle had a “little bit of everything” including a couple of challenging clue words and a visually stunning cartoon.  ABATE and ATTEST were the two words to give me pause with the latter taking the most time to decipher.  The 3 T’s made it difficult to find a starting point, but with a few self-jumbles, the answer finally gave itself up.  Moving on to the cartoon, we’re treated to a front row glimpse of a new roundabout opening with a bevy of different characters and scenes to delight just about everyone.  Jeff really put extra effort and detail into this piece with my favorite image being the family of three in the back left corner.  It’s probably because it reminds me of my own family, with my wife carrying a balloon and my son on my shoulders.  If you look closely, you can see the image on the man’s shirt being Captain America’s shield — perfect attire for a parade!  My other favorite bits are the Miss Carmel pageant winner waving to the crowd followed by the Beach Boys striking up their iconic tune.  The answer was an instant solve after reading the sentence which was just fine with me because it gave me more time to admire all of the cartoon detail I missed the first time.  Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!  đź™‚
