Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(Funny . . . ha ha, or funny . . . strange?  Both!  Life is more than a little strange – anyway you slice it – and it’s hilarious, all at the same time.  You don’t want to disparage a mourner’s grief, but laughing at a wake, or funeral, is a natural and healthy thing.  It helps in reaffirming life.  Even though this inspirational advice sounds corny and trite:  Don’t be sad because it’s over, be happy that it happened!  it’s still a sound way to look at life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(It’s a good thing – for me, at least – that this answer was so predictable!  Otherwise, it would have been very hard for me to back into “midday”!  Technically, not a compound word, but . . .  What the heck kind of word is it, anyway?  It’s an accepted word that was probably initially hyphenated, but then became part of the vernacular without the hyphen.  That’s my guess.  I just don’t know what to call it.  Anyhoo, it was the only word I struggled with, today.  Surprisingly, both “watch” and “stuffy” are new additions to the ralis95 clue word database!  Fantastic answer letter layout, again.  Great cartoon!  Anybody have one of those alarm clocks that let you choose the music you wake to?  Waking up to the same song every day . . . I guess that would be about the closest thing to having the Groundhog Day experience.  Brilliant concept movie!  Maybe Bill Murray is a god!  Well, not The God, but . . .  Be well and do good . . . over and over again, my friends.)   —   YUR
