Clue/Question:  If felines built cars, their factory could feature these.


(Okay.  Whose kid came up with this gag???  This sounds like it’s from the mind of a child.  Great drawing, though.  I see that Jeff is drawing from some of his Michigan roots once again.  Always fun!  We had some fantastically jumbled clue words today.  Didn’t we?  I really liked “asylum”, “shaken” and “opaque”, and even “pulley”.  I even had to back into “public”!  Only “jersey” was super obvious.  Since I had to back into “public” I really didn’t even notice the answer letter layout, until just now.  If you denied yourself the pleasure of this creative cartoon, and just went by the letters alone, this would have been a fairly difficult answer letter layout to unwind.  But, most of us are fortunate enough to get the full picture.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks.  Watch the final round of the Master’s Tournament, or your favorite baseball team, and do get outside and enjoy the day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

1942 - 2013 ... Annette Funicello

(Ahh!  Somebody that both Mets fans and Yankees fans can agree on!  So colorful and so knowledgeable.  No wonder he was known as “The Old Perfessor”.  I don’t remember him from his managerial days – it was before I was terribly baseball aware – but I do remember him from interviews and ceremonial appearances.  Such a great character, and a true American icon.  And, speaking of American icons, we lost two more greats this past week, in Annette Funicello and Jonathan Winters.  Annette was America’s sweetheart for much of my youth, and Jonathan was the original hilarious American whackadoodle!  So frenetic and out there.  Far ahead of his time.  Their passing is so sad.  They will both be missed, yet very warmly remembered.  Life/time marches on, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
