(Beautiful pun!  I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you struggled with this.  The clue words were all old favorites, but the jumbling was pretty good.  And, the answer letter layout gave nothing away.  It was nicely cryptic.  Great drawing too.  Reminds me of the old days, of watching ABC’s Wide World of Sports, on Saturday afternoons.  It was usually some Russian – or other Eastern European – guy who would win these weightlifting competitions. Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got. -Robert Brault (Photo credit: deeplifequotes)

Sometimes in a tragedy we find our life’s purpose – the eye sheds a tear to find its focus.”   —   Robert Brault

(Who is this guy?  Nice quote, but with this spelling of Brault all I could find was a hockey player, who was born in 1938.  Doesn’t sound like something a hockey player would say.  Maybe this is supposed to be Robert Breault.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
