YUPPP  =  PUPPY,  SALIA  =  ALIAS,  SIEWUN  =  UNWISE,  GGGILE  =  GIGGLE   —   Giving us:  PUYALANWIGGG

Clue/Question:  The electrician would get done if he kept . . .

Answer:  PLUGGING AWAY

(I can see some of you having trouble getting the answer!  The answer letter layout was a thing of beauty.  Nothing given away there.  No new clue words, and they were all pretty simple to unscramble today.  Jeff did a great job of setting it up, with all those outlets.  One in the hand, two on the floor, and a double one installed.  Plus, two cut-outs ready for installation.  The phrase is common enough, but I’m sure this caused some to scratch their heads.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy birthday to Fritz Mondale, Bobby Duvall, Chuck Noll, Charlie Rose, Diane Keaton, Ted Lange and George “Funky” Brown.   —   YUR

I shall not die of a cold.  I shall die of having lived.”   —   Willa Cather

(Atta girl, Willa!  This is the first Willa Cather quote since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  It’s a name I haven’t heard in quite some time.  My mother – who is MUCH better read than I – had the books of her Prairie Trilogy.  I definitely remember O Pioneers!.  I’m sure some of you out there have read her.  If not, then give her a shot.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The astrologer’s new billboard was . . .

Answer:  A ZODIAC SIGN

(Very nice.  No new clue words, but some good jumblings.  I really liked “iconic”.  Decent job on the answer letter layout.  And, a silly, but illustrative cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
