No matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and it will be better tomorrow.”   —   Maya Angelou

(As long as there has been a stay of execution . . . then yes!  If not, then you better prepare for that bumpy ride.  Fortunately, most of us are not on death row, although far too many people are.  I always admired Illinois Governor George Ryan, for taking the bold step of clearing Illinois’ death row, by commuting the death sentences of 167 condemned inmates.  Very brave of him to act on his conscience.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Great Saturday morning pun!  All of today’s clue words were warm and fuzzy old favorites.  I remember when warm and fuzzy was a popular buzz-phrase in the business world.  I’m not getting a warm and fuzzy from this.  Of course I wanted to slap the person, but, through great restraint, I refrained.  Surprisingly, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was swell.  The cartoon does a great job of setting the mood.  Such a happy looking couple, in an idyllic, rustic setting.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yesterday’s Jumble generated a ton of queries, so I guess it was tougher than many of us thought.   —   YUR
