(Not really a pun, I guess.  More of a semi-homophonic play on words.  But, I liked it.  The clue words were all tried and true, with nice jumblings all around.  I liked the jumbling of “poetry” and “myself” the best.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away today!  Today’s cartoon has the guy looking a little crazed, while the wife looks normal.  Kind of the opposite of the usual.  I love detours!  As long as I’m not in too big a hurry to get where I’m going.  They’re one of the best ways to see new sights.  Be well, do good . . . and enjoy the ride, friends.)   —   YUR

(Why did he include the word “other” in this quote?  Was he speaking about people of a certain talent?  As a stand alone quote the word seems unnecessary, but the context of the quote could explain why he chose to use the word.  The challenge in understanding this quote is greater than the solving of the cryptogram.  Be excellent and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
