(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

    Super puzzler. I can’t believe that LAGOON almost made me throw in the towel I actually diagrammed it many, many ways. How did I not get it. Two Os together. Oy! Loved the answer.

    Short story…I was walking my Aussie in the evening in the mountains a few years ago. He had pulled out on his lead and I was waiting as he sniffed around. I could see something moving around near him. I thought it was a neighbors cat and turned on the flashlight. OMG, he was nose to nose–YES! L I T E R A L L Y NOSE TO NOSE with a SKUNK — omg!!! They kinda shrugged at each other. My dog sauntered back to me and the skunk went waddling/sashaying on his/her way. When I could see our front door I freaked. The husb was not with me, and I started thinking about what I would have done IF…couldn’t put the dog into the car to get un-smell supplies, had nothing to tie him up with outside, take him into the house–probably not. So now I have a plan–just in case. The jumbles seem to bring back many memories for me.

    Have fun all!! LL
