(No conflict whatsoever today!  Mainly as a result of yesterday’s head scratcher, Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog received 6,183 visits  —  an all time record!  And, there were plenty of comments also.  We heard from a number of blasts from the past, such as Marc Berner, George Darling and JT, plus some new folk, such as June, bjp, Frederick Hedden and Ada.  Very interesting day.

Today there are no new clue words, but all of the jumbling was new to me.  I really liked the one for “prance”, and “absurd” is just one of my all time favorite words.  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic.  I can imagine some of you having to work to unscramble this big jumble.  The cartoon was classic Jumble.  That’s it for today.  Thanks for all of yesterday’s attention and comments.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Love is a fire.  But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.”   —   Joan Crawford

(First Joan Crawford quote since I’ve been posting these spoilers!  What a dramatic dame she was.  On screen and in real life.  She liked marrying men to four year terms.  I kid you not!  Douglas Fairbanks Jr., 1929 – 1933.  Franchot Tone, 1935 – 1939.  Phillip Terry, 1942 – 1946.  And, Alfred Steele, 1955 – 1959.  Okay, so the last guy up and died on her, but she did have a reputation for being . . . difficult.  Apparently, she was quite the dancer though.  And, she used that skill to make herself a star.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
