Clue/Question:  It can be yours at the end.


(More great, all-around, scrambling.  The cartoon wants you to think more along the lines of wills and inheritance, but it’s really about how many letters are closed.  Very sneaky, guys.  Be good, do good, friends.  Cherish the time with your pets.  Seventeen years, three months was a remarkable run for our dear, sweet and loyal Boone dog.  Run, boy, run! No one could catch you, way back when.  Rest easy, old friend.)   — YUR

    Very sorry to hear of your loss. We just got a puppy a few months ago. Gizmo instantly brought a new energy and love to our lives. (He’s already been in a couple of Jumbles) It was my first pet in 20 some years. I still miss Muffin dearly. 17+ years is a great long life. KAET RACE, LAL HET SEBT CLUNE!

    Thanks, Jeff.

    I really appreciate it. I’ve been expecting it for quite a while, while the rest of the family has been in a quasi-state of denial. My daughter is taking it the hardest. She was about 2 and 1/2 when my step-son brought Boone home from college, so she always kind of thought of him as a younger brother.

    They really do get into your heart, and brand themselves upon your soul. At least we’ll always have our memories of them.

    Best of luck with Gizmo!

    I felt so sad when I read about Boone. My last pet was a calico kitty who was only 6 years old when she passed. That was in 1980. I never got another pet because it was so hard to lose her. You wrote a very descriptive tribute to Boone, and you might want to read Sharon Creech’s book Love That Dog to make you feel better. I used to read it to my 6th grade classes at poetry time in January or February. My husband and I couldn’t get the solution to today’s puzzle, and cheated. We still had trouble really getting the double meaning, but finally…ding-dong…we got it. Today will be a tough one without your Boone, but try to tell funny stories to each other about him, and your heart will begin to heal.

    Ahh, wordsmiths, it did Occur to me, based on my Income, that a Goose and Martin are two different birds of the feather and can be bought with Common Cents. Hahahahahahaha Love the joke and word-play.
