If we all take the time to listen and love each other, this world would be a better place.”   —   Mike Love

(I had an old girl friend who loved Mike Love.  She said he was the *naughty boy* of the Beach Boys!  Maybe it was nasty boy?  This appears to be the first quote of Mike Love’s used in the Cryptoquote, so we welcome him to the Crytoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  143 years ago today, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Chief
Gall led the combined Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes in the Battle of Greasy Grass, better known to most of us as the Battle of the Little Bighorn.  Cocky George Armstrong Custer and the 7th Calvary did not fare so well, as we all know.   —   YUR

Answer:  ON THE SAME PAGE

(I can’t take sides here, because I really don’t have the patience for cooking.  It kinda sounds like the guy did jump the gun though.  Cooking a meal is as much about planning and timing, as it is the physical act of cooking.  You don’t necessarily need something to be done, just to get it out of the way.  To everything turn, turn, turn.  There is a seasoning . . . Okay, enough of that.

The race to complete the ralis95 clue word database continues, with today’s addition of “fungi”.  We’ve had fungus many times before, but this is the first time we’re going with the plural.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “posyu” having definitely been used before.  For the past number of days, I’ve been getting the first three right away, but the fourth one is always making me work some to get it.  I didn’t have to back into “melody” today, or anything, but it wasn’t automatic either.  The answer letter layout was a fine ten letter jumble, but the answer came to me immediately.

Nice little domestic, kitchen scene cartoon.  Mom is definitely not pleased, and Dad is getting defensive.  I think Mom is going to give Dad a beer and a bag of chips, and send him to the den.  Or, it could go the other way, I suppose.  LOL!  The couple up top seem to be getting along MUCH better!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
