Nothing astonishes men so much as common sense and plain dealing.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(I had a hard time getting started on this one.  No single letter words.  Only one word ending up ending in E.  And, I didn’t even see COMMON until I ruled out LETTER, BETTER, FOLLOW and then, finally, COTTON.  COTTON brought me to – my senses? – COMMON, which then made it possible to figure out NOTHING – it’s funny how figuring out nothing can mean everything – and the ING in DEALING.  Now that it’s done I can see that FIXFI is SENSE, but before that . . . bupkis!  I didn’t even see Ralph Waldo Emerson until I was about 2/3s done, and I usually complain when the author is too obvious.  Very challenging, for me.  How about you guys?  Did this give you a hard time too?  Be well and do good, friends.  Happy Father’s Day.)   —   YUR
