(Some very impressive clue word jumbling!  I really liked the jumbling of “actual”, “fickle” and “barren”.  And, also the new clue word, “prance” was jumbled well.  ralis95 will have to update his clue word database once again!  The answer letter layout was superbly cryptic!  If you didn’t pick up the gag from the cartoon you would have had a very difficult time figuring it out from the answer letter layout.  Great job, Mr. Hoyt!  Jeff Knurek even through in a little misdirection, with the king’s comment about his dad, King Charles.  Before reading the clue/question I was leaning towards Charlie The Tuna, format and letters notwithstanding.  Be well and do good, friends.  Don’t melt, or get dehydrated!)   —   YUR

    OMGoodness, all those poor people without electricity in this heat — prayers going up for them, as well as for those who have been in the path of the fire or have had to evacuate!

    I guess that my blue pills have been working overtime this week. Another record solving puzzle day for me. The only problem I had was with actual, but was able to back into it as I had already figured out the puzzle answer.

    We will be in the cool mountains next week, and I won’t have access to a paper 😦 . I might can check the blog on my Kindle, but that is usually pretty sketchy. And, the Kindle does not let me respond as I can’t find the comments button. Does anyone have any Kindle suggestions?

    All y ‘all be safe this fourth and celebrate your freedoms and the principles upon which this country were founded. LL

    No Kindle suggestions here, but . . . Have a great time in the mountains, Linda Lee!
