How to Become a Terrible Library Patron in 5 Easy Steps


(An Arbor Day pun!  I totally forgot that yesterday was Arbor Day!  Just as I totally forgot to post the Friday spoilers!  Sorry, guys.  I don’t even have a good excuse for it.  Well, I sorta do, but it would really be of no interest to any of you.  It looks like I kinda let Earth Day go by without any mention too.  With the COVID-19 dominating the news, I guess that just slipped my mind as well.  But, I was reading some positive effects of the Stay-at-Home directives.  In most places the air has gotten cleaner, due to less people commuting.  And, sea turtles and shore birds are benefiting from so many of the beaches being closed/empty.  I don’t relish people dying, but this definitely shows how the planet would be better off with fewer of us.

Oh day of days!  Friday gave us a brand new clue word, in “fibber”.  Finally, something for our pal, ralis95, to add to his world famous list.  I was a little surprised that it was new, but sometimes the simplest words kind of slip through the cracks.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “sihto” before.  The answer letter layout was an impressive thirteen letter jumble.  It hid the final answer nicely.

Nice library scene cartoon.  A very cheery, helpful librarian and an environmentally conscious young woman.  I bet she has no objection to the plastic bag ban, that more and more states are enacting.  Sure, it takes a little getting used to, but it’s a responsible way to go forward.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I missed the beginning, but I would like to wish all of my Muslim friends a Ramadan Mubarak!  Stay strong, friends.   —   YUR

    …the planet would be better off with fewer of us [on it].”

    In light of the environmental theme, I’m pretty sure that you do know what I mean, lwc. Whether you like it is quite another thing. — YUR
