(Such a condescending little phrase!  Carry on!  Who are you?  Admiral Farragut?  General Patton?  Colonel Klink?  Captain Kirk?  .  .  . Captain Crunch???  You payin’ me, but you ain’t da boss of me!!!  Carry on, my a_ _!  LOL!  I bet this clown is going to open up a box or two and find a few broken dishes.  Unless you have a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face I’d avoid using these words with anyone doing work for you.

We saw some good clue word jumbles, today.  I really liked the jumblings of “abhor” and “rather”.  No new clue words, today though.  I guess Hoyt decided to give ralis95 a little rest.  Decent answer letter layout.  Not great, but okay.  The cartoon gets the point across.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Doing a little cheap trolling, today.  Why?  Because I can!  Wonder if I catch anything?  Who can explain what I’m talking about?   —   YUR

(Even though “because” was the soul word to end in E, I figured the Q had to be the E, because there are 12 of them.  But, I also thought that the Us and Ps were likely Ts and Ss, and not Os and Ls, so I went through a little trial and error.  For a little while I had AJQT as WHEN, but all of a sudden the first 3 words jumped out at me, and I was off to the races.  Usually I complain when the author name is so obvious, but for some reason it didn’t strike me as obvious today.  The O and the L were a big help in getting the name.  Hopefully, more of you were able to see MEN DO NOT early on, and solved it quickly.  I think it’s a great quote.  You gotta keep playing, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
