Most people have never learned that one of the main aims in life is to enjoy it.”   —   Samuel Butler

(Amen, brother!  Another first time quoter to hit Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog!  Hopefully, Mr. Butler won’t be a stranger.  Carpé diem, kids.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  The Knurek family racing against the clock.

AGBYG  =  BAGGY,  PONIA  =  PIANO,  MCITOM  =  COMMIT,  ONIECV  =  NOVICE   —   Giving us:  AGAITNVC

Clue/Question:  Vacationing was fun, but this wasn’t.

Answer:  VACATING

(And, so the Knurek family summer vacation saga concludes.  It was fun while it lasted, but all good things must come to an end.  I liked today’s scrambling of “piano”!   And, “novice” took a little thought to get.  A little less so with “commit”, and much less so with “baggy”.  It was a little strange having the first six letters of the answer in the clue/question, and I don’t want to get into a whole etymology thing, but maybe they were just trying to throw us off a little.  Well, at least the purists I mean.  Lots of fun, guys!  How was the drive home, Jeff?  That’s usually a whole other feel.  Right?  Alright, friends.  Move along.  There’s nothing more to see here.  Peace.)   —   YUR
