Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.”   —   William Cowper

(Severer doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.  Now does it?  It’s one of those adjectives that would sound better as more severe, but . . . it is what it is.  When this guy was a small boy, do you think the other kids called him Billy Bovine?  Or, maybe Billy Cowpie?)   —   YUR

PS.  Guys.  I know it’s a nearly closing time, but don’t buy this lady a drink.  I’m pretty sure she could out-crazy Alex Forrest from Fatal Attraction!      YUR

Visual Description:  They’re paving paradise!

FILTN  =  FLINT,  HSRHA  =  HARSH,  DPAEDL  =  PADDLE,  LYJUFO  =  JOYFUL   —   Giving us:  INARSADDOL

Clue/Question:  All the new highway construction was turning Hawaii into . . .

Answer:  ROAD ISLAND

(Pretty clever pun!  I had absolutely no problem with the clue words this morning.  They all seemed either familiar or obvious, to me.  The layout of the answer letters made it a challenge.  The quotation marks helped me to figure it out.  Good way to close out the week, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
