Answer:  DEEP AFFECTION

(Ooh!  Being eaten alive, by a cold-blooded killing machine.  Not the way yer dear ol’ uncle wants to go out!  I’d much rather die in bed, thank you.  Either in the saddle, or in a nice dream.  After that they could feed my carcass to the sharks, for all I care.  Isn’t this pleasant Valentine’s Day talk!?!  LOL!

There were no new clue words today, but three of the four jumbles appear to be new.  I could only confirm that we’ve seen “denmat” before.  I thought the jumble for “poise” was superb.  The answer letter layout was beautifully cryptic.  It took me a few minutes to figure out the answer.  The cartoon was terrific, with a nice twist on the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  Now, we see where that sailboat ended up.  I’m guessing that Dave and Claire Hoyt really do enjoy scuba diving?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jane Hood (née Reynolds), by unknown artist. See source website for additional information. This set of images was gathered by User:Dcoetzee from the National Portrait Gallery, London website using a special tool. All images in this batch have an unknown author, but there is strong evidence it was first published before 1923 (based mainly on the NPG’s estimated date of the work). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine.”   —   Thomas Hood

(From the portrait of his wife I’d have to say she was not impressed with this.  A stern and sullen looking witch!  The guy died, unexplainedly, at the age of 45.  Seeing her, I think I know why!  Hopefully, all you guys have cheerier Valentines!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.”   —   Voltaire

(Well, there is a lot of texture to love.  It’s rarely a steady, smooth surface.  All of the peaks and valleys make it more . . . exhilarating.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
