When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely, it would be inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone.”   —   Tennessee Williams

(Both amusing and true!  And, some genuinely like to have it both ways.  They claim that no one visits or calls, but they choose to live alone.  What are you gonna do?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(He better hope that she’s just “standoffish”, ’cause Lucy ain’t playing!  She will beat Calvin like a rug!  This was a great way for the guys to close out the week.  None of the clue words were new, but all of the jumbles were.  The answer letter layout was phenomenal!  I don’t think there was anything obvious about it, and I bet a good number of you struggled to get the answer.  I almost made it into an Uncle Rave’s Wiseguy of the Month contest, as I thought it was that good, but I don’t have the time or energy for those anymore.  The cartoon is great.  I really miss Calvin and Hobbes.  It was such a great comic strip.  I think Peanuts is all syndicated re-runs these days.  It’s very conventional, but it also has an endearing universal quality to it.  Have a great Memorial Day Weekend, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR
