(Now THIS is much better!  All tried and true Jumble clue words, that provided a decent challenge.  A masterful answer letter layout.  A nice long answer, that makes for a good pun.  And, a marvelous Jeff Knurek – Classic Comics – drawing.  Of course it was updated a tad, showing the teen? son in more contemporary clothing, but that just helps to lighten the mood of, what could be viewed as, a potentially violent scene.  Great job, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”   —   Will Rogers

(Another great insight into the perils of complacency.  We shouldn’t ever feel like we’ve “arrived”.  We’ve all heard that life is not a destination, but a journey.  Well, it’s also a bit of a moving target . . . that sometimes shoots back!  Don’t be lulled into being a sitting duck, people.  Keep moving.  And, be prepared to zig when others are expecting you to zag.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I chose this pic because the wife is attending a reunion in L.A. this weekend.  She spent a night at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel – a real treat – before switching to the hotel where the festivities are taking place.  Miss you, babe.  Have fun though!   —   YUR
