If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.”   —   Dolly Parton

(The apostrophes were definitely a big clue in getting this one started.  I didn’t even bother looking for the Es.  The only word that I didn’t get until the end was paving.  There’s a lot of truth in this folksy saying.  Rebecca has been on a Dolly Parton kick, lately.  This is either the third, or fourth, one in the last few months.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When they dined in the clubhouse after a round of golf, they enjoyed the – – –

Answer:  MAIN COURSE

(This was more of a sly pun.  At least for me, it was not an obvious answer.  But then again, sometimes I’m just a little dense.  I don’t always pick up on the clues.  I think that might be the reason that I often state the obvious.  But, I guess you’d have to call this one a literal/figurative pun.  Right?

None of today’s clue words came up as new.  Ralis95 can just relax with his beautiful wife today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “zugea” having definitely been used before.  It took me a couple of looks to see the “mosaic”.  And, I love mosaics!  The answer letter layout was an awesome ten letter jumble.  For me, it disguised the final answer brilliantly.  I had to write out the consonants, and then the vowels right below them, for me to come up with the final answer.  The big clue – that I did not pick up on – was the waitress – excuse me, server – saying: Here are the entrees.

Great cartoon of a country club dining room!  The picture windows, looking out on to the main course, was what I was concentrating on, much more than the meal.  For me, it was a little sneaky, but definitely a great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
