Good ideas, like good pickles, are crisp, enduring and devilishly hard to make.”   —   Rushworth Kidder

(Okie-dokey!  I’ve never even attempted to make pickles before, so I’ll have to take his, or her, word on this.  Maybe some pickle-pusses out there can attest to this.  But, yeah.  Good ideas are tough to come up with.  Be bad-ass, my friends!  But, be good to each other!)   —   YUR

(Hey!  I prefer pooches to pickles . . . so sue me!  No, this dog’s name is Pickles!)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/09/11

Visual Description:  The guys, trying to put some added pressure on us!

AHRBO  =  ABHOR,  USIHS  =  SUSHI,  ACMPDA  =  MADCAP,  RELNLO  =  ENROLL   —   Giving us:  BRSMACEL

Clue/Question:  Putting a 30-second time limit on today’s puzzle would cause you to do this.

Answer:  SCRAMBLE

(Love it!  I don’t think even Richard got this done within 30-seconds!  I think it took me 30-seconds – minimum – on each clue word.  I adore “abhor”, but it took me a while to see it.  I’m NOT a fan of “sushi”, and it IS a foreign word, but I finally got that too.  Compound words always throw me, a little, so “madcap” didn’t jump off the page.  And, with “enroll” it starts with a vowel, and the scrambling was pretty good.  Fortunately, for me, I don’t look at the cartoon before figuring out the words.  Because, If I did I might have felt the additional pressure.  Overall, I think this was an excellent Jumble!  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR
