Visual Description:  Beefeater and an injured tourist.

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

    Our editor made some changes to words on her own that have resulted in a few words that should not have been used because they unscramble into other words. Today’s (1-15) SCUFF/CUFFS is a huge mistake. We had a chat with her this morning and she has promised to run all word changes by us in the future. She must have also made a change in yesterday’s for TIMBER because I don’t show that I used that either. Very odd. This happens when I make a mistake in not having the circles in the right places or I mis-spell a word (which happens from time to time no matter how hard I try to keep it from happening) and then she goes and tries to fix it but doesn’t run her fixes by us.

    DLH:

    I’m so glad you clarified that situation for us. I’ve been sending YUR separate emails about it and wondering how you could have had this happen two days in a row!

    Best,

    Ahhhh…all this reminds me of my teaching days. Even the board of education and teachers sent out letters with embarrassing mistakes. We in the English department would cringe.
