I’m an idealist.  I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m on my way.”   —   Carl Sandburg

(I’m sure this quote helped inspire Paul Simon, when he was writing “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard“!  But then again, what the heck do I know?!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Did any of YOU need any help in getting today’s answer?  I hope nobody needs an explanation, because this was WAY before my time!  JKLOL!  “Help!” was one of the Beatles biggest selling albums, and it came out in 1965.  It’s 3 biggest singles were:  “Ticket to Ride“, “Help!” and “Yesterday”.  Great memories!

All the clue words were jumbled well, today.  I especially liked the jumbling of “pounce”.  ralis95 will be adding “dated” to the clue word database.  The answer letter layout was beautifully cryptic.  And, a top-notch cartoon.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
