(Got that, Dudley?!?  As Spike Lee would say:  Do The Right ThingOf course in that movie almost everyone ended up doing the wrong thing, including our hero.  But, that’s besides the point.  Listen to yer uncle.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

English: Nymans Garden-Ode to a Grecian Urn. A daffodil crowded English garden, sun and shade, a bench and a stone urn to meditate. This is a perfect thought nook. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Helping to figure out the age old question: What’s a Grecian urn? (About 12 Drachma a day.)

ONLEV  =  NOVEL,  YEDCA  =  DECAY,  RALNEY  =  NEARLY,  LUTOWA  =  OUTLAW   —   Giving us:  NODCNEOUT

Clue/Question:  The abacus was a success because it could always be . . .

Answer:  COUNTED ON

(Unlike this blog!  Sorry guys.  I know most of these spoiler posts are entered pretty late in the day, but I’ve got to make some hay while the sun is still shining.  Debts are immense, and most places are looking to hire kids, who work real cheap.  Not handsome middle-aged wise guys, such as myself.  So, getting up at 5 AM and eventually getting home around 7 PM makes for a tough day for someone in my age bracket.  I’m sure there are plenty of other sites you guys can get your answers from, so I really appreciate those of you who are patient enough to hang in there with me.

No new clue words.  I liked all the jumbling, but especially “decay” and “outlaw”.  And, a nice job on the answer letter layout.  With a Hanna-Barbera quality cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
