English: Corn female flower AKA corn silk. The incipient ear is within the husks below the silk. For seed formation, many grains of pollen must be delivered to the sticky strands of silk (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  The consternation of the continuous cooking – and canning? – of corn.

(Some people barely bother shucking the corn to what I consider to be the optimum state for cooking and eating.  The removing of all the silk is just too much of a bother for them, I guess.  My corn needs to be pristine!  So, if this lady is cooking for me she really has her work cut out for her!

No new clue words today, but some fun jumblings.  I guess I liked “public” and “hyphen” the best.  “Spurn” and “skimp” are good words, but words with only one vowel are always pretty easy for me.  The answer letter layout was probably tough for those who aren’t familiar with shucking corn, but not for us: Aw shucks! types.  The cartoon does a wonderful job of capturing her distress.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I’m one of those oddities, who love catsup and sauce/gravy, salsa and bruschetta, but I don’t dig fresh/raw tomatoes!  I have a ton of food issues, that I will probably never outgrow, but the tomato thing is enough for one day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
