Never reach out your hand unless you’re willing to extend an arm.”   —   Pope Paul VI

(The last forward thinking Pope.  Progressive and pragmatic, he did so much to bring the Catholic church into the 20th Century.  Too bad his two better known successors, while great men in their own right, were/are so reactionary.  While not a religious person, I’m not even Catholic, I often wonder how different the world would be had Pope John Paul I not died – so very suddenly – after only 33 days as Pope.  Unfortunately, for us all, we’ll never know.  But, I believe things would have been better.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The new bakery specialized in these.

Answer:  PURE BREADS

(Great all-around Jumble.  Well-scrambled clue words.  Great answer letter layout.  A great cartoon, with two clues.  And, a punny answer!  None of the clue words seemed new, but the scramblings did.  The backwards name in the window is:  “Kay Niene’s Bakery”, and the baker’s patter sounds like it’s straight out of a dog food commercial.  In my estimation, the CANINE on the leash appears to be a Westie, AKA – or is it AKC – a West Highland White Terrier.  Cute little buggers.  They look like toys, to me.  I can tolerate small dogs, as long as they’re not too yappy.  My preference is for retrievers, setters, and mid to large sized mutts.  What I don’t get, is that it seems the smaller the dog, the bigger it’s price tag.  Dog breeding has largely become, unfortunately, kind of a shady business these days, anyways.  In the long run, I think you’re better off adopting/rescuing a handsome mutt from the pound.  They’re usually smarter, with less health problems.  Over breeding tends to make purebreds dopier and weaker.  Mutts are also usually more appreciative and loyal.  Also, they’re not as picky eaters.  With a good mutt you can save on the dog, and save on having to install an alarm system!  Be well and do good, friends.  Don’t forget to spay or neuter your pets.)   —   YUR
