Clue/Question:  What the new drummer said to the guy he was replacing

Answer:  BEAT IT

(After the long holiday weekend, the guys have decided to take it easy on us.  I’m thinking they gave us some new clue words to play with, though.  ralis95?  Nice likeness of the boys, Jeff!  Even the instruments and the backdrop – Cavern Club – lend it an air of authenticity.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

EGWDE  =  WEDGE,  DUIFL  =  FLUID,  RFETRE  =  FERRET,  ABNTYO  =  BOTANY   —   Giving us:  EDLIRRBAY

Clue/Question:  The first goose to arrive in Florida for the winter was one.

Answer:  AN EARLY BIRD

(Well, they always say traveling off-peak and out-of-season IS much cheaper!  So, maybe he(?) is not such a silly goose, after all.  The first 3 clue words were fairly simple.  Especially, after I figured out I needed 2 “T”s for fetter, and arrived at “ferret”.  “Botany” was a little more challenging.  Good scrambling all around.  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR

Golf seems to be an arduous way to go for a walk.  I prefer to take the dogs out.”   —   Princess Anne

(Some innovative, progressive-minded golf course owner should come up with a promotion to combine the two activities.  Maybe just a one day a week thing, maybe more.  Think of it!  Health benefits:  for the dogs, and for the fat asses who might normally take a golf cart.  Ever changing, impromptu “hazards”.  A little extra work for the groundskeepers and the caddies.  And, a generous supply of organic fertilizer!  I think even George Carlin might approve of this arrangement.  Remember where you heard it first, folks!)   —   YUR

OGCHU  =  COUGH,  ESLSB  =  BLESS,  CETEDN  =  DECENT,  DTUERG  =  TRUDGE   —   Giving us:  COESDTTRE

Clue/Question:  He got in trouble for smoking because of all the . . .

Answer:  DETECTORS

(Boy, does this one ever seem familiar!  Not necessarily the clue words, but the cartoon.  I’m pretty sure we had a similar one a month or so ago.  I had some trouble getting “trudge”, but at least I didn’t have to back into it today!  And, that’s good because I probably couldn’t have gotten the answer without those last three letters.  Doesn’t “ogchu” sound more like a sneeze than a “cough”?  I hate smoking.  Especially around food.  But, I think some of today’s anti-smoking legislation just goes WAY too far.  I don’t have a lot of sympathy for smokers, but I don’t think it’s right to legislate them as pariahs either.  It’s become a state sponsored obsession.  It’s nearly as bad as the hysteria over “terrorism” and “security”.  Why can’t cooler heads prevail?  Be good is for dogs and children.  Questioning things keeps your brain in working order.  Sound mind, sound body.  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I didn’t like any of the smoker/anti-smoking pictures, so I’m giving you this lovely lady from a bygone era.      YUR
