Good timber does not grow with ease.  The stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.”   —   Thomas S. Monson

(Now, I didn’t fall for THAT.  But, I did fall for something ELSE!  I’m getting to the end of the puzzle, and I’m thinking:  What the heck?  The first sentence made no sense to me, and who has a name like THOMLS?  Finally, I leaned back and realized there were no As in my version of the quote!  This realization actually gave me EASE before THOMAS sunk in!  Maybe I was still a little loopy from the antihistamine I took last night.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  And, only now am I realizing that the quote rhymes!  Yeesh!     YUR

Answer:  MEET THEIR MAKER

(Very nice pun.  It took me a couple of tries to come up with the answer.  I knew that THEIR was probably the middle word, but I thought that the first word was going to be either MAKE or TAKE.  As I guessed MAKE, it left me with EEMTR.  MAKE THEIR METER made no sense, and swapping the T with another M would have given me nothing.  Fortunately, in the EEMTR I was able to see the word MEET, and that led me to the answer.

No new clue words today, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  They’ve definitely given us “mictom” and “porrua” before.  I was very impressed with the answer letter layout.  I saw nothing obvious about it.  This is our second android themed Jumble in just a few days.  Perhaps, we might be in for one starring Arnold Schwarzenegger???  That would be fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
