It’s hard to be religious when certain people are never incinerated by bolts of lightning.”   —   Bill Watterson

(Alright!  I always thought that a fair question.  And please, spare me the: In God’s time replies. What I want to know is was this uttered by Calvin, or could it have been by Hobbes?  It’s such a shame that he pulled the plug on this classic comic strip, more than 20 years ago now!  A ton of people still remember it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  LIKE HOTCAKES

(One of those literal puns!  Not at all stinky.  I love the smell of pancakes in the morning!  Smells like . . . victory!  Especially, when they come with a side of bacon, or sausage.  Mmm!  No new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  we’ve seen “kejro” and “darisu” before.  The answer letter layout did not give away the answer.  It was a dandy jumble in itself.  The answer is just another one of those classic American idioms.  Beautifully detailed cartoon.  The one waitress is carrying a pot of coffee, the little plate with extra pads of butter, the order rack, the heat lamp, and the order up bell!  And, I think that waitress in the background looks like she could be Donald Trump’s sister!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
