Answer:  HAIRBRAINED IDEA

(I almost forgot the quotation marks, and was surprised to see that WordPress did not like the spelling!  I found out the correct spelling is harebrained, and it means having no more sense than a hare.  I never really gave the word much thought before, it’s just such a part of idiomatic speech.  We had one new clue word today, in “coarse”.  Hoyt has been on fire lately.  He’s really keeping ralis95 on his toes.  A bunch of the jumblings are new.  The answer letter layout is marvelously cryptic.  No giveaways.  Fantastic cartoon, too.  I don’t know if it’s actually supposed to be Hoyt, or not, but I generally assume it is when Jeff draws a baldy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Too much Getty owned photo content to contend with!  I refuse to deal with “owned” content that contains such a ridiculous legal disclaimer.  Soon, I will not be able to use/post any pictures, and after that I will strongly consider giving up blogging.  It is really not worth it friends.     YUR

We’ve had our cliches framed and hung on the wall so now for conversation we don’t have to talk at all.”   —   Roger McGough

(Our first Roger McGough quote since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  It’s a very British, dry humor quote . . . and I like it!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR  😉
