(Very nice, guys!  No new clue words, and none that I had to back into, but they were all jumbled well.  The answer letter layout was super!  In the cartoon, the guy, lower left, kinda telegraphs the answer.  Big headache tonight.  That’s about it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Figuring out bison and hyphen used up a few brain cells. And seeing all the answer letters gave me pause for concern — but fear not– I figured out the answer and completed my puzzling for the day! I remember a grand poker hand from some time ago! It came down to me and another fellow at the table. I got rather worried because he was hanging in and the fact that I was handing in raised a few brows — my four queens beat his four 10s. WHOA, what a night. It was too much fun. LL

    HYPHEN would have been difficult for newcomers, and I remember strugglingh with this word before, so I was glad to know it. My tendency is to always put the Y at the end of words, thus a problem I think for some when it comes second. YUR, I hope your head feels better. Nothing worse than a headache, except a migraine.
