(I don’t think pun critics would call this one “stinky”!  It brought me back to the early ’70s!  What a talented duo Simon and Garfunkel were.  Such beautiful, harmonic melodies.  The kind of music that stands the test of time.  I remember seeing their reunion concert in Central Park.  I think it was 1980, but it could’ve been ’81.  That was probably my personal Woodstock.  We camped out early in the morning and were there all day and most of the evening.  I seem to remember catching a little grief for singing along just a little too loud.  Apparently, some people wanted to hear them . . . instead of little old me.  I can’t help myself, and I don’t think many people can.  Besides, I’m not that bad of a singer.

There were no new clue words today.  ralis95 can rest easy.  However, all but the jumble for “menace” were new jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a superb jumble.  I don’t think it gave a thing away.  I was pretty certain the second word was going to be HIMSELF.  So, when I saw the remaining OMOPSEC the rest fell into place, right away.  Very good likeness of Paul and Art.  And, I like the gold records on the wall.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I love a good, stinky pun!  Humus, not to be confused with hummus, is the main part of the big organic cycle of life.  Plant and animal matter – yes, including fecal matter – break down to provide the soil with the necessary nutrients for plants to grow.  Decay might sound depressing to some, but it is truly deserving of our delight.  “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
