(Another new source of quotations!  At least for me.  I’m so poorly read.  But, this guy looks like he’s a very big deal, especially in Canada.  From reading some of his other quotations, on BrainyQuote.com, it looks like he also has a wittier, more ironic side.  Maybe some day I’ll stumble across one of his books . . . if I’m lucky.  Peace.)   —   YUR

(Nice start, for a Monday morning!  Everything was well jumbled, and the answer letter layout was subtle.  Mostly good clue words.  Not too crazy about “zoomed”, but I really liked both “churn” and, especially, “coupe”.  Looks like a Westie Jeff must’ve had as a kid.  Not sure about the other pooch, but it looks like some other kind of terrier.  Maybe some kind of Yorkie.  That’s about it, kids.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR
