Loving is not just looking at each other, it’s looking in the same direction.”   —   Antoine de Saint Exupéry

(Lusting is pretty much just looking at each other.  But, for it to be love . . . you usually have to see eye to eye.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TWOSOME

(Funky pun . . . even if it’s NOT the way David L. Hoyt wanted it to come out . . . which was actually “TWO-SUM”.  I haven’t golfed since I was a kid, but I guess in golf . . . four and four equal two?  I knew something was up with the answer, then I saw that David sent a preemptive comment, explaining that some editors changed it on them.  These things happen, from time to time.  Anyway, there were no new clue words, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Nothing wrong with the answer letter layout.  And, the cartoon was a dandy.  Nice twins.  They kinda resemble Tom Hanks.  Any golfers out there care to explain how 4 and 4 are a 2 SUM?  Maybe it’s golf jargon?  I think – in a few ways – this Jumble failed to make par.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  EYE“-MAX THEATER

(Beautiful!  Fantastic cartoon!  Looks like 3-D.  No new clue words today.  A bunch of new jumbles tough.  I really liked the one for “peanut”.  I almost went with “uptane” . . . whatever that would be.  The answer letter layout was great.  It gave nothing away.  I quickly figured the last word was “THEATER”.  It took a little while to get the pun part.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
