Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.”   —   Robert Frost

(Sounds more like Mark Twain, to me!  Maybe, Josh Billings.  But, Mr. Frost?  Poets aren’t allowed to speak in prose.  Are they???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR  😉

(These things DO work better when all the circles are in the right places!  Hoyt has already sent out the “explanation”, along with explaining yesterday’s TIMBER mix up.  These kid editors need some schoolin’!  CUFFS is NOT an acceptable Jumble clue word.  Any ding-a-ling knows that!  The intended word – “scuff” – happens to be a new clue word, so ralis95 can add THAT to the database.  I like the pun!  He didn’t have much to SHOW FOR IT!  Very clever.  Those GPS things can come in handy, from time to time, but I prefer good written directions, or an old fashioned map.  Don’t we have enough of Big Brother in our lives?!?!  I don’t like how so many have become totally dependent on them, too.  Getting a little turned around every now and then makes the journey a little more interesting.  It beats having a mechanical voice telling you what to do.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
