Some people like to make of life a garden, and to walk only in its paths.”   —   Japanese Proverb

(This can be taken a couple different ways.  The positive being that gardens are places of beauty and sustenance, and that here is great merit in creating such.  But, one could also look at this negatively.  All gardens have some kind of boundaries, so limiting yourself to its paths makes you very provincial.  Your growth is very limited, if you don’t venture out into the rest of the world.  Hey!  Let’s make the world one big garden!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ON A TEAR

(Or a shred . . . and a slobber!  Hey, everyone’s a critic these days.  Even dogs!  The dog is probably upset that newspapers no longer use proof readers, and they rely on Spellcheck . . . which only does as the name implies.  It does not care about duplicate words, missing words, the wrong homophone, words out of order, etc., etc.  I always feel a little embarrassed, as well as angry, when I read these obvious mistakes.

There were no new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles did come up as new, with “obato” having definitely been used before.  Surprisingly, it took me a couple of looks to see both “maker” and “outing”.  Good jumbles!  The answer letter layout was a well-made seven letter jumble.  But, it was kind of hard hiding a fairly obvious answer.

Cute domestic scene cartoon.  Maybe David of Jeff’s parents, living in Florida, or Arizona.  It looks like the pooch has even gotten hold of one of Dad’s slippers!  Maybe the dog is still in his puppy stage and he’s teething.  He will grow out of it . . . eventually.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
