Clue/Question:  The taxidermist took a lunch break so he could – – –

(A fitting stinky pun!  A well known idiom, but I don’t know when it was first used.  I don’t remember it being used when I was a kid.  Maybe, sometime in my teen years? I guess it wouldn’t have been considered “polite talk” back before then.  At least not in my household.  But, it is descriptive.

We actually have a new clue word today, in “scampi”.  I guess ralis95 will have to add this to his world famous clue word database.  I had to back into it, because I always just considered it an Italian style of cooking shrimp.  I never realized how redundant “shrimp scampi” is.  Scampi are essentially a type of shrimp, or prawns.  A little annoying, in that sense.  But, I pays it no nevermind.  I won’t eat no bottom feeders.  “Fluff” isn’t new, but I noticed that FLUFFY is not in the database.  Are you gittin’ this, Hoyt? All of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout is a cryptic twelve letter jumble.  Just knowing the answer was three words, and the length of the words, helped me to get the final answer.  Even without “scampi”.

And of course, the cartoon did a great job of showing the guy stuffing his face!  I liked all the finished products, both on the wall and on the table/work bench.  I guess you’d almost have to call taxidermy an art-form.  But, the job is a little too gruesome, for my tastes.  I guess I’d rather watch animals in a zoo.  Or, better yet, in the wild.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sitting has become the smoking of our generation.”   —   Nilofer Merchant

(True.  Most of the jobs today are so sedentary.  Usually sitting in front of some kind of computer screen.  And at the end of the day, when we are at home, we’re usually too tired to do much of anything but sit in front of a television screen.  Or another computer, or handheld device.  I’ve been utilizing the Apple Health app on my phone, but it seems to be all over the place.  One day it shows only 4750 steps – low end – and some days it’s up to 7200 steps, or more.  I guess some days I might open the app a little late, but the disparity is still pretty large.  This Nilofer Merchant is new to me.  She appears to be extremely successful.  Perhaps best known for her TED Talk on “Onlyness”, and her book “The Power of Onlyness”.  Very bright woman.  And, now she’s a member of the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
