(What happened to that great cartoon of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings you were supposed to give us?!!!  Censors turned you down, huh?  It looks like I’m going to have to provide my own cheap thrills.  LOL!  Oh, well.  A return to the traditional, with our heroes taking part in the action, is always a welcome sight.  Not as welcome as Women’s Beach Volleyball, mind you, but still . . . a welcome sight.  This felt a little like a re-run, but I guess that’s just because the word draw is so versatile.  All the clue words were well jumbled, today.  We have a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database, in the word “uncork”  I would have uncorked that word a long time ago!  The answer letter layout was masterful!  The answer itself wasn’t too tough, but it made for a nice pun.  Was that it for the Olympic-themed jumbles?  I was actually expecting a few more.  Not even a closing ceremony?  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Lately the Jumbles have been easier for me! But don’t change my picture, because it looks like I’m pulling my hair out! And that’s how I feel when I try the Cryptoquip! Thanks YUR, for what you do!

    I don’t have any control over the icons that come with the comments, Betsy. But, I’m glad you’re happy with the one you’ve got! Very often, the cryptoquote is a piece of cake! It just takes a little more patience to complete them.

    Uncork had me for a bit! But got the puzzle pretty quickly. I am in awe of you cryptoquoters! @ Betsy — I like my little green gal too!
