Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform.”   —   Susan B. Anthony

(Very true.  Social graces be damned.  Unfortunately, too many people just need to have their faces rubbed in it, to get them to see the light.  Our conventional mores may be steeped in tradition, and seem more comfortable . . . to some, but the world most definitely does not come to an end when we toss them out the window.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

DOMME  =  MODEM,  RUBOR  =  BURRO,  NYRCAN  =  CRANNY,  FLAMEE  =  FEMALE   —   Giving us:  DEMRRORNNYALE

Answer:  ORDERLY MANNER

(Excellent pun!  Very often, it seems like the orderlies are the friendliest – and most capable – people in the hospital.  Hey, guess what?  We seem to have a new clue word today.  I would’ve sworn that we’ve had it before, but it wasn’t on the ralis95 clue word database.  The “new” word is “burro”.  Purists might try to argue that the word is Spanish for small donkey, but the English language is very fluid, and constantly evolving.  I hope our good friend sees this one!  One of the jumbles, “flamee”, has definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was outstanding!  A super terrific jumble, that did a wonderful job of keeping the answer hidden.  The cartoon does a great job of showing a hospital discharge.  Very satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SWIMMINGLY

(Oooh!  My favorite dogs!  You know I liked this pun/Jumble.  All of today’s clue words worked out to be old favorites.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “cimmi” having been used before.  Fine answer letter layout, from Mr. Hoyt.  And, a splendid cartoon from Mr. Knurek.  I like the grumpy looking duck in the background.  He seems to be upset that the dogs are using his pond.  Cute.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for carousel

Answer:  HORSING AROUND

(Good thing it’s a standard carousel.  Sometimes there are tigers, lions, pigs, giraffes, etc. on these merry-go-rounds . . . and then where would the pun be???  Just kidding!  No new clue words.  One old jumble, in “wherds”.  Excellent answer letter layout.  Very fun cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

People underestimate their capacity for change.  There is never a right time to do a different thing.”   —   John Porter
