(A little obvious.  Some great clue word jumbling though.  I’d bet that some of you had a hard time coming up with “alkali”.  It’s not your everyday word.  Maybe even some of you had difficulty in getting “blurb”.  The answer letter layout was good, but there wasn’t exactly a lot to hide in there.  Now, was there?  Looks like the boys are fixin’ to rob the 5:10 outta Cheyenne!  Good thing the Kid showed up!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Oh, yeah.  Cat Ballou‘s grandfather!  Frankie Ballou’s old man.  I think I pulled that old gag the last time we had a Hosea Ballou quote.  Can’t help it.  It’s a very memorable movie for me.  I remember both my mom and my aunt laughing so hard they cried watching that movie.  Lee Marvin won Best Actor for playing the duel role of Kid Shelleen/Tim Strawn in that movie.  AFI voted it one of their Top Ten Westerns of all time.  It’s most definitely worth a rental, folks.   Luckily, I have it on DVD.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
