(The only time I go with the flow is when I’m caught in a rip-tide.  Actually, you have to swim parallel to the shore to escape the current.  Then swim diagonally – away from the current – back to shore.  A rip tide, also known as a rip current, is very scary, but they’re easy to survive, as long as you remain calm.  They won’t pull you under water, just further away from shore than most people can safely swim.  Weak, or inexperienced, swimmers are usually at a greater risk because they are more likely to panic.  Do your best to remain calm, and you’ll live to swim another day.

Hoyt is giving ralis95 the weekend off, as there are no new clue words today.  And, I’d be surprised to see any tomorrow.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “gocil” before.  The answer letter layout made for a swell ten letter jumble.  Not obvious.

Fine plumbing bathroom scene cartoon.  Nothing too fancy.  It got the point across.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Here on the Outer Banks of NC, way too many people ignore warnings (including red flags = beach closed to swimming). Real rip tides generally don’t look as depicted in the poster, leading some to conclude there’s no danger where there may be. (There are YouTube videos that teach what to really look for.)

    Lifeguards ride up on ATVs to families ignoring red flags here, tell them to get out of the water, and when the ATV is gone, some of them get back in. Parents sit on beach chairs drinking beer, chatting, and staring at cell phones while their kids play in red-flagged water. People worry about sharks, but shark attacks are relatively rare here and usually survived; rip tides are the far bigger danger statistically.

    Nine people were swept out to sea and drowned in 2018 rip-tide incidents on Bodie and Hatteras Islands here. Half the time the fatality is a parent who swims out to rescue a child pulled out in a rip tide; the child may wash back up alive on the beach, but the untrained rescuing adult perishes.

    If you are on a beach with a yellow or red flag warning, please heed it. The danger is real, even if you don’t see it.

    All around good/fun puzzle^*

    LOGIC dictates that multiple H2O leaks inside/outside the house would would bring a ROUGH upcoming bill!!$…the worst problem was by the WINDOW in various locations of the sink where parts would have to be reFITTED^^*

    Nice touch in the Cartoon with the adjustable
    wrench tucked in the belt of the Boss/Senior Plumber with the apropos belly jutting out a little {☆}

    I don’t think it has anything to do with the relatively simplistic illustration, David. It’s more that people are a combination of lazy, stupid, and a little arrogant. The “It couldn’t happen to me” attitude. But, thanks for expounding on the issue! — YUR
