(Ooh . . . busted!  Makes for a great pun though.  This is definitely NOT a young couple, so this must be some overly hyped anniversary gift.  25th, no doubt.  These greedy jewelry chain stores do a very effective job of planting that seed into people’s minds.  “Tell her you’d marry her all over again.”  What a crock!  Just be a decent, loving husband.

It’s looking like we have another new clue word today, in “homily”!  Looks like our good friend, ralis95, is going to have to update his world famous clue word database once again!  I had a strong feeling that it was going to be a new clue word, and I was right.  All four of the jumbles are coming up as new today.  The answer letter layout was a wonderfully cryptic, eleven letter jumble.  It took me a minute or two to see the answer.

Great cartoon showing the wife’s displeasure, the busybody sister, or friend, and the flummoxed and embarrassed hubby.  Trying to pull the wool over her eyes was a big mistake.  He should have been more up front with her.  They must not be on the same page.  Oh, well.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Simple one for me today. I got Homily, but wondered if it was correct as it’s not a common word I hear much of. As far as jewelry, the biggest sell-job is the LeVian ‘Chocolate’ diamonds. You see the ads every year, and I did a Google. It seems they are just the super common ‘brown’ diamonds that are used in industrial applications. The gem buyers get first crack and cull all the best ones. A little polishing and marketing, and off they went. What woman can resist a diamond called ‘chocolate’? 😀

    To avoid a rather unpleasant HOMILY from my wife, I avoid certain things at, say, Anniversary
    So I don’t HAPPEN to CRANK up a “TIGER by the Tail”, these are certain things I do;

    1) Don’t by any clothes, shoes ect…
    2) I might ask her if she would like an update
    of her jewelry or fancy purse, for example.
    Then I would by Her the most beautiful card
    I am able too. Then give her a Gift Card in
    3) I make sure she receives some very nice
    actual/hands on gifts; Special Flowers or
    Plants ect…
    4) If she has not made/wanted some plans of
    her own, I ask her to pick a Restaurant that
    She would enjoy that day.{this is a “lock” for
    me because she was a Manager of Res-
    taurants in Her previous life in NYC and still
    enjoys going to various types}
    ( Her heritage is from the Barcelona, Spain
    region, so this kinda is in Her Blood♡☆)
    5) Time permitting & circumstances, I inquirie
    if She would enjoy a movie, dance or any
    other type of entertainment.^^

    This might sound like a lot of time/$$$ but
    its not that many times in a year… {generally
    it comes out of my gambling winnings: That’s
    a great story but too time consuming!!!??$$$” Let’s just say: No probmento when I PAY THE PRICE”

    Be Blessed: Pull an Elisha and ask for a double-portion (not from Elijah but aim at the Supreme Being…Who was, is and forever will
