My stories run up and bite me in the leg – I respond by writing down everything that goes on during the bite.”   —   Ray Bradbury

(A true giant of 20th Century American literature!  He says that he wrote everyday of his life, from around age 12 on.  I guess that means he was bitten every day!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  GOODINSTINKS

(A putrid pun!  Really acrid.  Sort of like a burning tire.  Even without consulting the world famous ralis95 clue word database, I knew that today’s clue words were all old favorites.  But, I checked anyway.  It’s part of the routine.  Hey, sometimes I surprise myself, and there’s a word that’s not on the list.  Three of the jumbles came up as new though.  We’ve definitely seen “finke” before.  David’s answer letter layout was a fine jumble also.  Jeff’s cartoon and dialog were also great.  We had a young fox trot through our backyard yesterday morning.  Much smaller than the one I saw a block away last week.  Thankfully, I think the skunks are still hibernating.

Did anyone get up early to watch the Tom Selleck moon?  I did, and it was a bit of a ripoff for us East coasters.  Sure, it was “super”.  Yeah, it was a “blue moon”.  But, we got next to nothing of the “blood”, aka the eclipse.  I watched it until about 10 to 7:00.  It had a slight shade at the upper left portion of it, as it was sinking in the horizon, and the dawn was nearly breaking.  We East coasters usually get gypped, when it comes to astrological events.  Oh, well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
