Friday Jumble - 5

First unscramble the 4 words. Then unscramble the circled letters to answer the riddle below.

Note: Some of the words may have multiple solutions but the answers are 4 simple, common words while the invalid solutions are rather uncommon words not used on an everyday basis. But based on emails, not everyone liked the multiple solutions. So I will post possible-but-not-valid solutions to the 4 words as the first comment.

Can take pride in the fact that I guessed the answer to the final clue before unscrambling the 4 initial clues! Was wondering when I would be capable of doing that...when I was seeing other people saying that..:-). This was the easiest jumble so far for me!! Thanks Balaji - keep these coming. Happy to be able to use a little part of my brain on Fridays at your blog! :-)

Balaji,

Nice puzzle and as you said if you thought of simple/common words, the puzzle is easy to solve.

Sorry for the late response. Although I read your blog regularly, my regularity is more like every 4 or 5 days...

Hi, I've enjoyed visiting your blog. I am trying to get my zen mp3 players site up and running. At the moment I am concentrating on the Zen Touch and Zen Sleek. Sadly, the Zen micro does not appear to still be available from Creative.

I've certainly got some way to go before that site meets the standards of your blog.
