A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you’ve been taking.”   —   Earl Wilson

(Pretty clever!  Funny thing is BrainyQuote.com is attributing all the Earl Wilson quotes to the baseball player, instead of the the famous columnist.  Just another reason to not believe everything you read on the internet!  Be well, do good and always dig a little deeper, friends.)   —   YUR

RLIGL  =  GRILL,  EVNOM  =  VENOM,  CLINHF  =  FLINCH,  BARTEY  =  BETRAY   —   Giving us:  LLEOMFHTA

Clue/Question:  In a leap year, which months have 29 days?

Answer:  ALL OF THEM

(One of the oldest gags in the book!  But, there are always a few who fall for it.  I wasn’t too happy with the jumbling of “venom”.  Just a little too obvious.  A word as simple as “grill” is actually new to the ralis95 clue word database, though.  I almost had to back into “betray”!  I was actually starting to write down combinations, starting with betray, but only because I was mentally verbalizing it as bet-ray.  That might be a personal little quirk of mine with six letter jumbles, trying to go 3 and 3.  I’ll have to remember that the next time I get a little stumped on one of those.  The answer letter layout was pretty good today.  No complaints there.  The woman in the cartoon looks a little like Luann‘s mom, in the comic strip Luann, by Greg Evans.  Actually, kind of a combination of Luann’s mom and Luann’s guidance counselor.  The guy has a little Carl Sagan, or maybe Neil Diamond, going on.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
