The American male doesn’t mature until he has exhausted all other possibilities.”   —   Wilfrid Sheed


(Hey!  I resemble that remark!  LOL!  Surprisingly, today I guessed right.  For me at least, it was yet another *Art Shapiro moment*, but today there were two un-obvious letters missing from the author’s name that required a certain amount of linguistic logic, and a little bit of luck.  I was not familiar with:  _IL_RID SHEED, so I wrote out all the unused letters, which were:  FGJKQVWYZ.  I’m really more familiar with Wilford and Wilfred – and Wilfredo – but I thought there was a more Germanic version of the name, and it turns out I was right.  Unfortunately, Mr. Sheed is no longer with us.  Of course, these facts had to be confirmed by Google, but whadayagonnado?!?!  This is just one way of exposing us to writers, and other people, we might not have been aware of.  There is no guarantee that I will remember this name tomorrow, but for one brief shining moment . . .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I thought this picture of the sleeping Prince Charles Cavalier and the tabby cat was appropriate for a lazy Sunday afternoon.  And, of course, there’s always the Aww factor.   —   YUR
