(NOW WE’RE TALKIN’!  TALKIN’ PROUD!!!  LOL!  Dem’s mah boys!  Hey, Wimpy!  Are you digging this?  Thanks, Hoyt and Knurek.  Whether or not this was for Wimpy and me, I appreciate my boys getting a SHOUT out.  We looked fairly crummy beating the Dolphins on Thursday night.  But, considering how good we looked, in getting robbed by the officials, just four days earlier, I’ll take it.

No new clue words, today.  But as it turns out, yesterday’s “prong” IS a new clue word.  So ralis95 has a little updating to do to the clue word database.  The clue word jumbling was fine, but I got all the words immediately this morning.  Same with the answer letter layout.  To my credit, I didn’t even notice the cartoon was about the Bills, until I had completed the clue words.  Made me laugh out loud.  lol, for you kids.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Français : Essai de restitution des armoiries de Michel Eyquem, seigneur de Montaigne (+1592).Dans ses «Essais» livre I, chapitre 46, il décrit ses armes : «d’azur semé de trèfles d’or, à une patte de lyon de mesme, armée de gueules, mise en fasce» (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Marvelous quote!  And, a pretty challenging solve.  Only two words, and the last name, ended in E.  And, neither single letter words were used.  For me, the placement of the commas, and the two short words following the commas, were the biggest clues.  After discerning that it was all downhill.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Loads of pics of paintings and statues of this man – and his castles, and such – but the coat of arms REALLY caught my attention.  Beatutiful!  I decided to give you an additional pic of a painting of him, because I liked the hat he was rocking!  Without the hat he has an ENORMOUS head!  Like Egghead, from Batman.  Not exactly flattering, by today’s standards of beauty.  Maybe back then, but not today.   —   YUR
