My photographs do me an injustice.  They look just like me.”   —   Phyllis Diller

(What a funny lady she was!  And, a real ground breaker.  She was the first female comedian that I can remember.  Even before Joan Rivers.  Almost always a self-deprecating style of humor.  If you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?  But, when she was young she was actually very attractive.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”   —   Stanley Horowitz

(Dead?  Alive?  I could find no real bio on the guy, except that it looks like he came from an Australian publishing family.  Wikipedia drops the second O in his name.  If he is still alive it looks like he’d be 95 or 96 years old.  It’s a great quote though.  Someone in his family should put out a bio on him!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  After putting sesame seeds on hamburger buns, his business was – – – 

Image result for sesame seed bun

Answer:  ON A ROLL

(Probably not this specific scenario, but this pun has been around for a while!  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen “yonan” – the Philly Barbarian? – before.  The answer letter layout was swell, for being seven letters long.  Nice old timey cartoon.  Looks like the 1890s/turn of the century.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for jack-o-lanterns

Answer:  COMING TO A HEAD

(Fairly challenging Jumble answer!  All the clue words were pretty simple, old reliables.  But, at least all the jumbles were new.  I thought the answer letter layout was a marvelous jumble.  I didn’t find anything about it to be obvious, what-so-ever!  The cartoon was great.  Although, I was stuck with the reduced size version.  Besides the jack-o-lanterns doing a head-to-head, also the horses are doing a head-to-head!  Excellent!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.”   —   Shira Tamir

(Ahh!  A kindred spirit!  Also, she appears to be a regular person!  Which means maybe – someday – they will use something yer uncle has said for a Cryptoquote!  It is within the realm of possibilities!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Autumn

Answer:  AFFIRMATIVE

(No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “merfa” before.  It always takes me a couple seconds to see “metric”.  I blame Reagan!  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  Nothing given away.  The cartoon conveys the story very well.  Happy Autumn, everybody!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Autumn

The heat of autumn is different from the heat of summer.  One ripens apples; the other turns them to cider.”   —   Jane Hirshfield

(My favorite season!  And, apparently this little girl’s too.  Bring on the moderately warm sunny days, and the cool cool nights.  And, the rustle – and great smell – of dry fallen leaves!  Welcome, autumn!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
