(If you want a great dog to play fetch with you can’t go wrong with a retriever!  I’ve got a big, goofy, golden named Ginger, and she loves to chase a ball, a stick, or a Frisbee.  Or, pretty much whatever you throw for her.  They’re such sociable, people-loving creatures too.  She sheds like crazy, and despite chew sticks and dog biscuits she has some funky breath!  But, there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for my baby girl!

There were no new clue words today, but there was some good jumbling.  I say some because I thought “active” was a little too obvious.  But, “cobalt” was great!  I think some have had trouble with this word in the past.  It looked to me that all the jumblings themselves were new.  I think David did another superlative job on the answer letter layout.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  And, I think that a good number of you may have struggled at getting the answer.  A good puzzle for this Good Friday!  And, the 4th day of Passover!  “Yaaleh Veyavo”!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Wise words from a very funny lady.  And, cute too.  Heck!  I wouldn’t even keep one of those action figures wrapped in plastic!  The collection value of those things is so fickle and unpredictable.  Just let some – worthy – little kid play with it.  The joy it could give them is priceless.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
