They don’t ask much of you.  They only want you to hate the things you love and to love the things you despise.”   —   Boris Pasternak

(Brrr!!!  Not the nicest way to introduce us to Mr. Pasternak, Becca!  Just who the heck is this terrible “they” anyway?  I know that not all the quotes are going to be uplifting, but yeesh!  Fairly challenging though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  A crystal victory . . . amongst paned defeat!

LERED  =  ELDER,  UNRET  =  TUNER,  MOLCRA  =  CLAMOR,  ALLUWF  =  LAWFUL   —   Giving us:  EDENERCARAFL

Clue/Question:  After winning new windows at the grand opening, they owned them – – –

Image result for geometric shaped windows

Answer:  FREE AND CLEAR

(A very nifty pun.  And, yes.  Today, I checked the answer letter layout, before venturing any assumptions!  You’ll all be happy to know that Mr. Hoyt has given us a new clue word, in “tuner”.  I was a little surprised that we hadn’t had it before.  Our good friend, ralis95 will have to update his world famous clue word database.  I thought the jumble for “clamor” was fairly challenging.  It’s a great word anyway.  I tried to go AWFULL for a second or two, but as soon as I saw the extra erroneous “L” I realized where it belonged.  The only returning jumble was “lered”.  The answer letter layout was a splendid jumble.  I had to think for a moment before I figured out the idiom they were going for.  Swell drawing . . . of the drawing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
