Answer:  GRAND

(Aww!  I loves my grandkiddies!  But, you know what the best part about being a grandparent is?  You get to give them BACK to their parents!!!  Having to deal with the wee ones when you are 50 + is fine . . . in small doses.  Just don’t push your luck.  That kind of stress can get to you in a hurry.

No new clue words, today.  The jumbling was swell.  I always have a little trouble getting “gyrate”.  Maybe, it’s because I have limited rhythm!  ROCDAC was a new jumbling of “accord”.  Kind of tough to hide a five letter answer.  I agree with JT . . . great cartoon, Jeff.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ENGLISH CHANNEL

 

(Well, well, well.  If you had only an elementary knowledge of geography you probably could have skipped the Clue/Question altogether.  The clue words were well-jumbled, though none gave me any trouble.  Somehow, it looks like “highly” is going to be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database.  Masterful job on the answer letter layout.  And, a fine depiction of early 21st Century life . . . in the first world.  Who makes up the rankings of countries anyway?  They always talk about third world countries, and they’re usually not too tough to figure out.  But, what constitutes a second and first world country?  Anybody know the formula???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(What a stodgy, head up your ass quotation!  A lot of these late 19th – early 20th Century Brits were total D-bags.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
