True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.”   —   Kurt Vonnegut

(That might’ve been true for me between 2009 and 2017, when Obama was in office, but Donnie has 11 years on me, and Bernie – our next President – will be even older, at 80!  LOL!  Clearly, Kurt did not come up with this line as a young man.  But, he was such a great writer.  Arguably the best of the 20th Century.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WARMED UP TO IT

(A hot, stinky pun!  But, not necessarily a radiant pun.  No, this could be more of a convection pun.  Which wood actually be more efficient.  Don’t mind me, folks.  I’ve just been looking up wood burning stoves.  The more traditional ones produce radiant heat, but some of the newer ones are designed to produce convection heat.  Besides being more efficient they’re also safer than the traditional ones.

Once again, all of the clue words are familiar old friends.  Nothing for ralis95 to attend to today.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I breezed through the first three, but got hung up on “litfeu”!  Yes, I had to resort to backing into “futile”.  Even after realizing I needed a U, I and T it took me another couple looks.  Hats off to Hoyt for that one!  The answer letter layout was an impressive twelve letter jumble.  Fortunately, I was able to solve the final answer from the first nine letters.

Great cartoon of a couple sitting by a fire from a wood stove.  The split logs and the sleeping dog were a nice touch.  Thanks, Jeff. 

Hey!  Yes, tomorrow is Groundhog’s Day, and tomorrow is also Super Bowl LIV.  But, for those of you who take notice of numerology issues, tomorrow is 02022020!  It’s a palindromic date, and I think the only one that uses only two numbers, 0 and 2, in this millennium.  The next one like it will be March 3rd, 3030.  Pretty cool, in their rarity, but otherwise . . . what?  Just your average days.  Unless someone misinterpreted those Mayan calendars!!!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
