I hate housework!  You make the beds, you do the dishes – and six months later you have to start all over.”   —   Joan Rivers

(Such a funny lady!  Either I forgot to add her name to my Tag list, or this is the first Joan Rivers quote since I’ve been posting the spoilers!  She, and Phyllis Diller, were such ground-breakers for women in comedy.  She lived a long life, and might still be with us today, IF she had had her procedure done in a hospital, rather than that clinic!  You don’t mess around anything less than an actual hospital when you’re 81 years old!  Even if the clinic had done everything right, the risk was too high.  A cautionary tale for the rest of us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I try not to throw too much sports at you guys, but if you want to read a nice in memoriam column, read Kevin Allen’s piece on hockey great Bill Gadsby.  It’s in USA Today Sports, which is available in most Gannett newspapers, and you’ll probably be able to find it online.  It’s very well written, in my opinion.   —   YUR

Answer:  FOOD FOR THOUGHT

(I’m betting the phrasing of the clue/question might have thrown some of you.  At least initially.  It did me, ever so briefly.  I hope ralis95 is reading his email today, because there is a new clue word, in “hotter”.  It needs to be added to the world famous clue word database.  It’s not all that often that they come on Sundays!  The jumbles were pretty good today.  I really liked “rocshu”!  We’ve seen “fidara” before.  The answer letter layout was good, but maybe not great.  The cartoon was a great slice of American family life.  A little too much reliance on fast food.  Most of us are guilty of it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
