(Ehh!  Not bad.  A little on the obvious side, for my taste.  I knew the answer before reading a single word of the cartoon.  And, I was a little surprised to see they used the word “back” in the cartoon.  Usually, they artfully avoid those kind of things.  Clue word jumbling was fine.  I liked both “accept” and “trendy”.  It’s kind of ironic how well those two words go together.  Furthermore, “trendy” will be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database.  No problems with the answer letter layout.  Kind of a romantic feel to today’s cartoon, huh?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Well, I stand valiantly for BIG dogs, the Canadian flag, cousinhood and People Magazine.  That’s why people just kinda scratch their heads when they think of me.  I always loved Art Linkletter, but not for the pandering reasons he stated.  He was an intelligent, humorous and good-natured radio/television host/personality.  I grew up watching him.  He was great with kids.  We all loved his facial expressions and reactions to the silly, and sometimes profound, things that kids would say.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with his druthers.  It’s just not why he was loved.  Uncle’s say the darndest things!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
