Clue/Question:  Smokey got lost in the woods after he lost this.

Answer:  HIS BEARINGS

(No new clue words, today.  Good jumbling, but nothing too tough.  Answer letter layout was good, too.  Answer was pretty easy.  Another fun cartoon, though.  Hope and pray for rain in Colorado!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”   —   Dietrich Bonhoeffer

(A remarkably virtuous and principled man.  He was one of the conspirators in the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.  “Everyone who acts responsibly becomes guilty.”  He was executed by the Nazis in the waning weeks of WWII.  I knew there were many good and decent Germans during the war, despite what many would have you think, but I was not aware of this individual’s story.  You can learn something everyday, just by doing the cryptoquote!  Despite there being only one single letter word in this puzzle it was not all that simple to decipher.  I had guessed that the first word might be “action”, but was not sure until I figured out the word “thought”.  From there the whole thing came together.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
