I have just three things to teach:  simplicity, patience, compassion.  These three are your greatest treasures.”   —   Lao Tzu

(Who can argue with this?  Not yer uncle.  That’s for sure.  Just looking at the cryptoquote, I felt pretty strongly that the author was going to be Lao Tzu.  Great quote from a great philosopher.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The twins bought identical wristwatches at the – – –

Answer:  SAME TIME

(No toughness progression this week!  I thought yesterday’s Jumble was much more challenging.  I was able to figure out the answer just by looking at the answer letter layout, and glancing at the cartoon.  I didn’t even need to read the clue/question.  Some puzzles just come to you instantly, I guess.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I thought that “unsoic” was the best of them.  Nothing wrong with the answer letter layout.  It’s just that 2 four letter word answers aren’t usually all that tough a solve.  The cartoon is a lot of fun though.  If you have the reduced sized Jumble you might not be able to make out the name of the shop.  It’s:  I’m Watching You!  Hey!  Do you think Jeff has a twin brother?  The twins in the cartoon look like a young Jeff Knurek, don’t’ you think?  Not a bad similarity in the photo I selected either!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
