Answer:  FARE SHARE

(I think we’ve seen this pun before, just in a slightly different context.  It works though.  All the clue words are tried and true, but the jumbling was  good.  I liked”adahe” and “vatren”.  Great job on the answer letter layout too.  These must be buddies of Jeff’s, because I believe that he is a Colts fan.  Or, is that Hoyt in there???  Maybe David will stop by . . . and clarify.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I think that they messed up on the attribution of this quote.  Only Wikiquote is attributing this to Richard Jefferies.  Everyone else is attributing this to Pearly Mae Bailey.  I like Wikipedia and Wikiquote, but it’s open to just about anyone for editing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
