The most happy marriage I can picture or imagine to myself would be the union of a deaf man to a blind woman.”   —   Samuel Taylor Coleridge

(I love it!  She won’t be able to see all that he is doing wrong, and he won’t have to hear whatever it is she can find fault with him.  Of course, nowadays, it could just as well be a man and a man, or a woman and a woman.  But, we are talking a couple hundred years ago.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  With all the taxes and surcharges, gasoline is – – –

English: Gasoline pump

Answer:  FEEYOUL

(I’m not terribly comfortable with this answer, but it’s all my daughter and I could come up with.  Taxes and surcharges are fees, and gasoline is a fuel, so . . .  Not real sure – assuming this is right – what the three part break up is about.  To be honest, I’d like someone to come on and just tell me my answer is plain wrong, and correct me.  Then I can hit myself on the forehead and say:  Doh!

There is a new clue word today, in “syrupy”.  ralis95 will have to add this to his database.  All the jumbles were new, from what I could tell.  I initially wrote down ALEVE for the second word!  I guess that proves the pervasiveness of advertising.  It didn’t sit right with me, so I looked again and saw “leave”.  This answer letter layout definitely did not help me out any!  My page stats for today are way above average, so I think that means a lot of you are coming here to check your answers.  Another thing that kind of threw me, is that Jeff’s car looks backwards!  The back looks more like the front, and vice versa.  Maybe, I’ve just been doing these too long, and I should just hang it up.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
