Answer:  HIS EYES CLOSED

(PICKLES!  Do they have a dog in this strip?  I know there’s the old man and his wife, and a grandson.  But, is there a dog?  Maybe I’m thinking of Fred Basset.  Both of these strips are in my mom’s newspaper.  They’re not in mine.  There is a dog, named Pickles, in Luann!  That I know.

There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have definitely seen “tuyoh”  before.  The answer letter layout was wonderfully cryptic.  It gave away nothing.  And, the cartoon was very amusing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.”   —   George Eliot

(Ugh.  Poet talk.  It just doesn’t resonate with me.  Beer, pizza, sports and police procedurals is more my speed.  Okay, I do enjoy museums and the ballet.  And, I occasionally do the wine and cheese thing, and go to see the occasional Broadway show.  But, that’s it.  I don’t do poetry.  You’re on your own with the above.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
