MULPB  =  PLUMB,  CLUPK  =  PLUCK,  RADEYL  =  DEARLY,  BTEMRI  =  TIMBER   —   Giving us:  PPDERTI

Clue/Question:  Everything was going great on her European vacation until she . . .

Answer:  TRIPPED

(Simple answer.  Two new clue words for the ralis95 database, in “plumb” and “dearly”.  And a DQ on “timber”!  The letters can also spell “timbre”, so it goes on the Dupe List.  30 lashes with a wet noodle for Mr. Hoyt!  Cute cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I like high praise from non-American egg-heads!  Of course, this is a quote from a time when the U.S. was not quite the supreme superpower that it is today.  And, it does specify people, and not government.  We’re still a great and generous people.  We just need to stop being hoodwinked by the corporate media and our corporatocracy.  When will the vast numbed majority finally see through this grand illusion?  Set aside the silly wedge issues, and take a good hard look at what’s been going on . . . for far too long, folks.  Just hope and pray that it’s not too late.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

TIONNO  =  NOTION,  NOFLYD  =  FONDLY,  SMIRPH  =  SHRIMP,  WRROBO  =  BORROW,  TEPLOP  =  TOPPLE,  HERBUC  =  CHERUB   —   Giving us:  OIOFODSHIBORTOLCHR

Clue/Question:  He didn’t order the lobster bisque because it was . . .

Answer:  TOO RICH FOR HIS BLOOD

(Wow!  18 letters!  That’s one of the longest answers in a good long while.  Don’t ask me what the record is, because your Uncle don’t keep track of dat!  This took me a little longer than usual, only because I messed up writing the last three letters in the answer letter layout.  For some reason, I wrote CER, instead of CHR!  From the wife’s comment, I knew it had to be FOR HIS BLOOD, and I started out checking off the letters for TOO RICH FOR, which left me with ODSIBOLE.  I pulled BLOOD from that, and was left with SIE.  I scratched my head and checked off the letters for FOR HIS BLOOD, and was left with IOTOCER.  TOO RICE???  Hmm!  Maybe, I should re . . . DOH!  Oh, well!  These things are going to happen from time to time.

I’m seeing both TOPPLE and SHRIMP as new words, but I’m not completely comfortable with either one being new, so I’ve referred them to ralis95 to check against his master database.  I ate at a place as fancy as this just last night.  It was at a place called Seasons, in Washington Township, NJ.  It was for the 90th birthday of a really sweet old girl!  Had a great time, despite nursing some kind of cold, or something.  A lot of whacky stuff going around, right now.  Take your echinacea, zinc and vitamin C, folks.  And drink plenty of fluids!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
