(From alliteration to compound word!  Apropos pun.  Gr-r-reat cartoon!  And, three new clue words!  ralis95!  You have got some work to do.  Mr. Hoyt has seen fit to grace us with 3 new clue words today, with “civic”, “papaya” and “homely”.  I was fully expecting “papaya” to be new, but “civic” and “homely” were a little surprising.  I didn’t have to back into, or even write out combinations of, “papaya”, but with just three different letters it caused me to look real hard at it.  Excellent clue word!  The answer letter layout was fairly tricky.  It did not give the answer away.  It was the splendid cartoon and the clue/question which made the answer pretty much a gimme.  At least for those of us who were raised in the USA . . . on Kellogg’s cereals!  A very nice way to start the day.  I think that might have been one of their slogans!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yes, I know Tony was for Frosted Flakes.  I was just doing my own bit of alliteration.  RIP, Lee Marshall!   —   YUR

(From a long and rambling:  It’s All Too Much, from the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine album.  At over 6 minutes in length you are not all that likely to hear it played on commercial radio.  Maybe on college/university radio, where it could provide cover for a toilet break!  Freebird and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida were usually pretty safe.  Man, I loved the ’70s!  Lots of self-indulgent rock in those days.  I once did a one act play while I was doing my radio show, and no one was the wiser.  Thank God for Traffic, Iron Butterfly and Emerson, Lake & Palmer!  Good times.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
