Kindness in words creates confidence.  Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.  Kindness in giving creates love.”   —   Lao Tzu

(I guess the consensus is that: kindness is the way to go!  Happy Chinese – Lunar – New Year, everybody!  It’s the year of the monkey!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SWAN SONG

(Not quite sure why she’s wearing a crown.  Maybe, because she’s a diva?  It’s cute though!  I don’t think the answer should have been all that tough for anyone to get.  We do have one new clue word today, in “swampy”.  It’s possible we’ve had it in the past, but that probably would have been on a Sunday, when ralis95 doesn’t always catch them.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “finsf” having been used before.  I always appreciate the kind of clue letter groupings like we had today.  Makes my job just that much easier!  The answer letter layout was another nifty jumble.  And, it’s a super cartoon!  I always enjoy Jeff’s ducks and geese.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Congrats to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, on their impressive Super Bowl 50 victory!  Was this Peyton’s swan song???  Before the game, my brother and I were saying if Denver played their game then it was going to be a low scoring game.  Some guy in the newspaper was saying the game would be over 44 points!  Pssshh!  What a maroon!      YUR
