Once we have cut down all the big trees, part of our punishment will be to live in a world without any big trees.”   —   Greg Guirard

(Sometimes we just need to be smacked by that old club of obviousness!  Photographer, Author, and Professor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.  He deeply loved the beauty of the Atchafalaya Basin.  He passed away just last month, at the age of 80.  Rest in peace, gentle soul.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Locker-room etiquette.

GINET  =  TINGE,  WDLOR  =  WORLD,  GIRHEH  =  HIGHER,  TUFTIO  =  OUTFIT   —   Giving us:  IGEWORHGHTFI

Answer:  RIGHT OF WEIGH

(And, a much larger – and stronger looking – physique!  There is something very familiar about today’s pun answer.  Maybe we’ve seen it in a slightly different context?  All of the clue words are old favorites today, and both “ginet” and “girheh” have been used as jumbles before.  The other two came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a splendiferous jumble!  I knew, with the quotation marks and the scale, that WEIGH had to be the third word, and RIGHT OF made sense of the pun.  Fun cartoon.

Happy Bastille Day, to the United States’ oldest friend and ally, France!  I just thought I’d mention this, since President Trump thought that most Americans were not aware of this!  Very strange, since there are 29 places in the U.S. with  – one form, or another – of the name Lafayette!  So, take that, you “Freedom Fries” chuckle-heads!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
