(Beautiful pun!  Where’s Flo???  Unspectacular jumbling of some very familiar clue words.  But, the answer letter layout was masterful!  I could see some of you struggling to get this one.  Great cartoon.  I think the fat kid looks hungry.  That wood is not edible, son!  Not unless you’re a beaver.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I would not waste my life in friction when it could be turned into momentum.”   —   Frances Willard

(It’s kind of funny.  Ms. Willard was born just outside of Rochester, NY in the town of Churchville, while Susan B. Anthony lived the majority of her life in Rochester, NY.  Both were well-known suffragists and active in the temperance movement.  Frederick Douglas also spent quite a lot of time in Rochester.  Hmm.  There must’ve been something in the water there, back then.  Great quote . . . for someone known as an activist!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

DOMEM  =  MODEM,  WRAPN  =  PRAWN,  LOGNAL  =  GALLON,  KIOROE  =  ROOKIE   —   Giving us:  MDPRANOE

Clue/Question:  When he didn’t understand what was said at the parole hearing, the prisoner said . . .

Answer:  PARDON ME

(That was fun.  Reminded me of the oft repeated scene in The Shawshank Redemption.  What a fantastic movie!  No new clue words, today.  I liked the way “rookie” was jumbled.  Great job on the answer letter layout.  Not a thing was given away.  Loved the cartoon.  That does look like Andy Dufresne/Tim Robbins.  Don’t it?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
