The gain is not the having of children; it is the discovery of love and how to be loving.”   —   Polly Berrien Berends

(I flipped a coin, and went with Molly.  Meh.  You win some, you lose some.  This is the first Polly Berrien Berends quotation, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Unfortunately, she passed away this past February.  She authored numerous books, many of them for children.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SECOND FIDDLE

(Ahh!  A literal/figurative pun!  Very nice.  Hey, guess what, kids???  We don’t have just one new clue word today, but we have two!  Yes, both “candy” and “cuddly” are not currently on the ralis95 clue word database.  So, the big boss man has a little work to do!  I half expected “cuddly” to be new.  But, “candy”???  That one surprised me.  All of the jumbles came up as new!  And, the answer letter layout was a nifty jumble as well.  Great job, Mr. Hoyt!  The cartoon is very entertaining!  It looks like Jeff inserted himself, as a clarinetist.  Great Jumble.

Yesterday’s Jumble, “ALL-TURN-ATIVE”, resulted in the site receiving over 4300 queries!  Nearly twice as many for an average day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
