(I like the pun!  And, with the great answer letter layout, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you had some difficulty in solving this.  I don’t think there were any new clue words today.  I didn’t find any of the clue words particularly difficult, but that could just be me.  I really liked Jeff’s drawing/cartoon.  I guess that’s about it for this one, guys.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR
