Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn’t have to do it himself.”   —   A. H. Weiler

(That’s why generals are usually off on a hill somewhere, far from the battle.  They know the costs involved, but can’t afford to be part of the equation.  It’s a numbers game, and the troops are little more than numbers to them.  Most will mourn the losses, in some way, but they have to look at things a little more abstractly, in order to be effective leaders.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  KITTEN CABOODLE

(Of course she did!  Most mammals, humans included, have strong motherly instincts.  Nurturing and protecting their young is kind of hardwired.  And for many, those instincts/feelings continue long after their young have matured.  We love our kids . . . no matter what!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new, while both “cankk” and “pluceo” have definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fourteen letter jumble.  It was beautifully cryptic.  If it wasn’t for the quotation marks this might have been a more difficult solve.  Even with them, some may have struggled to get the answer.

Cute cartoon of the mama cat and her five little kittens.  Five kittens is not that large a litter.  It’s pretty much average.  Eight kittens would be more of a “huge” litter.  I love cats!  It’s the litter box that I don’t care for.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
