Dog Abuse in Virginia!

Do you guys think dogs should be left chained up outside, in ALL kinds of extreme weather, day and night?  Well, the House Agriculture Subcommittee in Virginia thinks it’s just fine!  They refuse to vote on a bill (SB872) that would prevent this type of abuse.  Allegedly, “they’re in bed with the hunting lobby and the dog breeders; they are corrupt; their votes have been purchased.”

If you’ve got the time, and the inclination, give these guys a call, and give them a piece of your mind.  (Or, write them an email.)

Sometimes all you need is just for someone to believe in you in order to be able to accomplish maybe what you never thought you could.”   —   Drew Brees

(Yes.  Having someone to believe in you goes a long, long way in believing in yourself.  Let someone YOU love know that YOU believe in them.  It could make all the difference in their life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DUMBBELL

(I’m always amused by the number of people who can’t seem to just enjoy their workout.  They need to be entertained.  They have to be wired.  Pathetic.  But, that seems to be the new norm.  And, apparently, I’m now an anachronism.  Among the small, insect-eating, scampering mammals, yer uncle remains the defiant Allosaurus.

Today’s clue words are all tried and true.  While all the jumbles appear to be new.  For some reason, I couldn’t focus in on “blurry”.  I actually had to back into it!  The prior three . . . came to me, immediately.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble, but with it beginning with a D and ending with an L, it wasn’t supremely challenging.

The cartoon did a nice job of conveying a gym doofus.  I think even Planet Fitness would judge him thusly.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
