AGOLT  =  GLOAT,  SERDS  =  DRESS,  CTOONT  =  COTTON,  FRUIPY  =  PURIFY   —   Giving us:  GOTESSCTNUIF

Clue/Question:  The designs for the new eyeglasses were chosen after this.

Answer:  _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _ _ _       ***FOCUS TESTING***

***  Shortly after 5:00 PM EDT  (Okay folks, the contest is completed!  The answer should be as above.  I don’t know what “Focus Setting” would be, but if that does turn out to be the answer in tomorrow morning’s newspaper then . . . I probably shouldn’t be running this blog.  This month’s co-winners are Chris and Keith, with honorable mentions to Paul and Wimpy.  But, thanks to ALL who took the time and effort to write in.  All you word-nerds are winners, in my book!)      YUR

(It’s been long overdue, friends!  Yes, it’s time for this months edition of the Unclerave’s Wiseguy of the Day contest!  Who out there has the right combination of the correct answer and an appropriate stinging barb?  As always, the wisecrack can be directed towards: the answer, the cartoon, the clue words – hey, why not? – or yours truly!

It’s a twelve letter answer, of moderate difficulty.  The answer letter layout is sufficiently cryptic.  All the clue words are well jumbled old favorites.  We’ve even had the jumble FRUIPY before!  So, let’s have at it, word-nerds!  If you’re having a little difficulty with it I suggest you listen to Damn the Torpedoes.  Or, perhaps Moving Waves would be more to the point!  Be well and do good, friends.  I’ll check back later.)   —   YUR

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us.  That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.”   —   Emily Kimbrough

 

It is not unusual in many societies throughout...

It is not unusual in many societies throughout east Africa for men to display their friendship for one another by holding hands in public. Two soldiers on patrol in the streets of Bujumbura, Burundi nonchalantly express their affection for one another. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Would it were we could all go hand in hand.  Too often we try to go it alone, for a number of misguided reasons.  Or, circumstances kind of force us to go it alone.  Almost everything is easier, and more worthwhile, in the company of others.  We should get over this macho notion of rugged individualism, as the be all to end all.  As social creatures we can accomplish so much more collectively than individually.  Just two can make a group . . . but the more the merrier.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  And there should be no stigma attached to men holding hands, or women holding hands.  It doesn’t have to mean attraction or desire.  It can simply mean friendship and support.   —   YUR
