As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”   —   Bruce Lee

(Hay!  Where’s the beef?  Did someone just step in a cowpie?  Because that is one stinky pun!  This might be tripe, but I think we may have seen a boviform of this rodeo sometime in the past.  Maybe someone can prod my memory.  It seems udderly familiar to me, somehow . . . now brown cow

The clue word “unkind” came up as new, but I think that we have had it before.  Most likely on a Sunday.  Regardless, our friend ralis95 will be adding it to his world famous clue word database.  The jumble “gemao” has definitely been used before.  All the others came up as new.  The answer letter layout was sublime!  A world class jumble.  The cartoon’s truck has put me in mind of Movin’ On and B.J. and the Bear.  Those were fun TV shows from the mid to late ’70s.  Any of you kids remember those shows???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
