Clue/Question:  He promised her he’d shovel and salt the walkway, but it – – –

( . . . when you absentmindedly text while you’re walking in the Winter!  It seems everywhere you look these days nobody wants to take personal responsibility for themselves.  PSAs put all the emphasis on the drivers, while they show the pedestrians completely oblivious to everything that is going on around them.  They even have the nerve to show the “innocent” pedestrian, looking down at their cell phones, while wearing earbuds.  The pedestrian, especially in the crosswalks, has always had the right of way.  But, it was always your own responsibility to pay attention to the lights and signs, and to look both ways before crossing, AND then to stay alert.  The pedestrian has always been at a disadvantage, and the drivers should always be cognizant, if not vigilant, of them, as well as bikers and skaters, etc.  But, there has to be a shared responsibility.  What is the point of being “in the right” when you’re severely injured, or even dead?  Don’t expect the world to look out for you, because it won’t.  Survival is about being aware, and being smart.

Hey, no new clue words today!  I hope ralis95 saw yesterday’s spoiler though.  All of the jumbles did come up as new.  They were all fairly simple today.  The answer letter layout was good, but it couldn’t hide a fairly obvious answer.  The cartoon is very amusing.  Jeff’s Wolverines lost a heart-breaker to my brother Geoff’s Seminoles, the other day.  Oh, well.  That’s the way the ball bounces!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Amen Unc!!! And it’s the same with the bicycle riders around here. Scary at times. Good pics. The polar bears seem to be frolicking!! And I think the dude lost his sled.

    I loved the jumbler. The guy is clueless, and her phone and pocket book are stuck in the snow, indicating, to me, that she took quite a spill and she looks none too happy!

    The New Year has been off to a big start jumbler wise. I’m wondering how many new words were introduced in 2016. Hey Ralis—hope all is well!!

    Happy New Year all!! LL

    Yep Unc, the Wolves lost by one lousy point. Hate when that happens. Then Penn State gave up a 15 pt lead today & let SC win. Ugh. Much better off sticking to the jumbles, eh? 😳

    And Wisconsin beat Western MI in the Cotton Bowl as well. On top of the Pack beating the Lions last night.

    I like the pic of the polar bears. The other one looks like he’s laughing. 😀

    He might be laughing, Damid! For a second, I thought someone caught a picture of ME, when I went down in my driveway back on 1/11/2011. But, I quickly realized that this guy has less hair than I – STILL – do! And, there’s another version of the pic that shows the guy carrying a briefcase in the hand that *might* break his fall. Besides, the likelihood of someone taking pictures in my driveway at ANY given time are pretty remote.

    Tough break for Penn State last night!
