Time and money spent in helping men to do more for themselves is far better than mere giving.”   —   Henry Ford

(Kind of a play on the teaching a man to fish, rather than giving him a fish saying.  Job training, and on the job training, pays dividends for all involved.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  OUT ON A LIMB

(I can’t really call this a stinky pun.  Squirrels are – by their very nature – squirrely.  But, it has nothing to do with stress.  They are fearless, even on the thinnest of branches.  I think the Mohawk skywalkers, who built so many of New York City’s skyscrapers, to a certain extent, were emulating squirrels.  Native people would often emulate a variety of animals, because they always felt one with nature.  They weren’t “above it”, like the white men who always purported to be so.  They knew that all nature is connected by a common thread, and they acted accordingly.

Would you believe that “would” is coming up as a new clue word?  That kinda blew my mind!  I guess our friend, ralis95, has even more work to do, after entering Sunday’s two new clue words to his world famous clue word database.  All four of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was an excellent ten letter jumble!  Nothing obvious about it.

My biggest clue to the answer was the cartoon.  The therapist squirrel’s office is in the tree trunk, and his door opens up to a nice long limb!  Cute squirrels, and I like the rustic legs on the “couch”.  Be well – so you don’t have to see a therapist? – and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
