Image result for candle burning at both ends

My candle burns at both ends; it will not last the night; but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends – it gives a lovely light.”   —   Edna St. Vincent Millay

(Out of context, this sounds both noble . . . and silly, at the same time.  I hope some poetry buff can shed a lovely light on this quote!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for regan from King Lear

Answer:  REPOSSESSED

(Good groaner of a movie pun!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen “surevs” before.  The answer letter layout was a nice jumble too.  I didn’t pick up on the movie angle until I read the clue/question.  The name Regan rang a bell, but I knew this wasn’t King Lear!  Although, she could be pretty scary herself!  Nice cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Elbert Hubbard

Righteous indignation:  your own wrath as opposed to the shocking bad temper of others.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(So true!  Every time I see some Congress person claiming that they are OUTRAGED, I just kind of shake my head.  We haven’t had an Elbert Hubbard quotation in quite a while.  Let’s hope we get a few more soon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NO . . . NOT BY A LONG SHOT

(Wow!  I thought that every single jumble had a certain amount of difficulty, today.  We appear to have a new clue word today, in “hooves”.  It seems a little familiar, but if we did have it before we certainly didn’t have it with this particular jumbling.  It might have been before ralis95 was capturing some of the Sunday new words.  But, here it is now.  All ready to be added to his world famous clue word database.  Four of the jumbles appear to be new, with “elagio” and “bustim” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic 16 letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Fun golf cartoon.  I know he takes it very seriously, and he’s very good at, but whenever I think golf cartoon I think of Bill Murray.  He is both irreverent and hilarious.  He never fails to crack me up.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There’s no cure for ugly, but you can make yourself into a human optical illusion.”   —   Jenna Marbles

(It’s true.  No offense, but especially for women.  I’ve seen little film clips of a *beautiful* woman, who proceeds to remove her hair, her eye lashes, her makeup, and some teeth, only to reveal a very plain Jane.  I suppose guys can do it too.  I feel I look totally different if I don’t blow dry/style my hair!  I had to look up this Jenna girl, but it’s a little hard to describe her.  Ask your kid, or grandkid.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for tennis serve

Answer:  PROUD TO SERVE

(No new clue words, all new jumbles.  Saw them all immediately.  Nice letter groupings.  The answer letter layout was the best jumble, but the answer was pretty evident.  Swell cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/19/17

Image result for Donald G. Smith

Common sense and education are highly compatible; in fact, neither is worth much without the other.”   —   Donald G. Smith

(It’s always good to have a healthy balance of the two.  But, if you’re forced to go with one over the other, I’ll always side with common sense.  I’ve seen some very “educated” people make some really stupid mistakes!  And, some of them have trouble making run of the mill, logical leaps.  They have to map everything out.  It can be very frustrating dealing with people like that.  There seems to be a number of Donald G. Smiths out there!  There are a few who are very successful businessmen, and at least one of them is a philanthropist.  I always feel a little funny when I can’t give proper attribution.  I’m going to guess that it’s this guy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
