Clue/Question:  When he gave her a heart-shaped sugar cookie, she thought it was – – –

Answer:  VERY SWEET

(WHAT?  A SUGAR COOKIE!  Where’s the CHOCOLATE, bub?  This is Valentine’s Day, not Christmas.  Oh, well.  It’s the thought that counts.  And, maybe she’s one of those rare females who don’t like chocolate.  There are a few of them.  And besides, red frosting on a sugar cookie looks better than on a chocolate one.

I was REALLY surprised to find that two of today’s clue words are coming up as new!  Both “alley” and “victor” are not on my most recent copy of the ralis95 – world famous – clue word database.  And, it’s from November of 2017, so it’s not very old.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  The word “seize” goes against the ‘I before E, except after C’ rule.  I’m sure there must be some kind of loophole in that rule.  The answer letter layout was an awesome jumble.  It gave nothing away.

Ya know, Millennials call those hats “beanies”.  Those aren’t beanies!  They’re toques, or tuques, and sometimes tukes!  From my Doug and Bob McKenzie days!  When I was a kid, they were called either watch caps, or just knitted hats/caps.  Beanies were always those funky – read ugly – little hats that college kids wore.  They were more like yarmulkes, and covered pretty much just the tops of your head.  But, the kids are calling ’em “beanies” now, so we folk who know better don’t argue with ’em, cause that just makes us old!  Any who, I hope everybody has a Happy Valentine’s Day!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I’m going with Tocque, 🙂 My dad had a beanie, I ended up inheriting it and still wear it when there’s a bit of a chill. I’m in agreement that it reminds one of a yarmulke. 🙂
