Visual Description:  Lucy and Dolly, about to duke it out!

RANGD  =  GRAND,  FORDN  =  FROND,  CESCIN  =  SCENIC,  WESFET  =  FEWEST   —   Giving us:  ADONDSNWT

Clue/Question:  Tensions mounted between the lemonade sellers when neither of them would . . .

Answer:  STAND DOWN

(I wonder who would win this fight?  Lucy’s got the bitchier disposition, but she’s basically a blowhard/bully, with a couple of younger brothers.  Dolly is sweeter, but she’s dealing with three brothers, and I’m pretty sure one of them is older.  Dolly’s got a little more heft to her, too.  If they did bring the brothers into it then Dolly would win hands down.  Both Billy and Jeffy are all boy, but Linus is a thumb-sucking, blanket carrying, philosophical/intellectual pacifist.  I’m pretty sure that both Rerun and P.J. would just sit it out.  Not enough info on their pedigree.  You never see any adults in Peanuts.  Bil is a bit nebbish, but sometimes that Thelma’s got it going on!  I wonder how Al Bernstein would call this fight?  Hey!  Look at yer Uncle Rave.  He just did a Jumble/Cryptoquote crossover!  

Wha???  The wordsy stuff?  Okay.  None of the clue words were all that difficult, but – according to the latest ralis95 clue word database – both “frond” and “grand” are new!  I thought Hoyt did a fantastic job on the answer letter layout.  Nothing given away, there!  Jeff’s Lucy was pretty good, but his Dolly could have used a little work.  If I hadn’t noticed the sign behind her, I might have had to question who she was.  Way to hedge your bets, Jeff!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Your Uncle Rave – in no way – endorses, or encourages, the fighting of children for entertainment purposes.      YUR

(Ha ha.  Very funny, Al.  Just stick to boxing, pal.  I think I had today’s quote – at least half – solved before I even put pen to paper.  Some days are like that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
