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.

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...
