Your theory is crazy, but it’s not crazy enough to be true.”   —   Neils Bohr

(This man was both brilliant and witty.  He was able to open his mind to different kinds of thought.  It is so easy to get into the rut of thinking the way you usually do.  Climb out of that rut, friends!  At least try.  Peace.)   —   YUR

Visual Description :  A guy I’d never play poker with.  (Or:  A guy with whom I’d never play poker.)

THAPC  =  PATCH,  NEYDE  =  NEEDY,  SOLISF  =  FOSSIL,  ORRWUB  =  BURROW   —   Giving us:  ATEEFSB

Clue/Question:  He thought locking up his poker winnings was this.

Answer:  A SAFE BET

(I can’t put my finger on it, but this feels like a re-run to me.  Even the painting of Dogs Playing Pokerwhich I believe hangs in the Louvre – seems very familiar.  None of the clue words seemed new, although they were well-jumbled.  The answer letter layout was fine.  Not exactly the biggest challenge.  I think our buddies went beyond a safe bet, and went with a sure thing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
