Answer:  BLEW HIS STACK

(Pretty good pun!  I think the whole thing worked fairly well.  The clue words were all pretty basic stuff, but the answer letter layout was decent.  Woulda been better if the first two clue words had been swapped.  Then we wouldn’t have had HIS right in the middle.  But, I don’t think that was a huge giveaway.  Really enjoyed the cartoon.  The smokestack was the big clue.  Alrighty then.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Sounds like a pretty good poilcy to me!  I’d like to think that I do, but I know that very often I just mail it in.  Doing your best, on a daily basis, is tough work!  But, keeping the concept in the back of your head – each and every day – has got to be a positive!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy Birthday, to my friend Ellen!  (aka: Hellen)  When we were kids we used to get these word game books, where there were these short little stories with fill in the blanks that had things like:  Noun, Verb, Adjective, Adverb, Number, Color, Boys name, Girls name, and things like that.  The one reading would just ask the other person for the kind of words the blanks called for and write them in, in pencil, of course.  Then they’d actually read the story aloud, with the random response words in the blank spots, and you’d end up with a fairly silly story.  I can’t remember the name of those books.  Do any of you guys remember them???   —   YUR
