Clue/Question:  The arm wrestling match held everyone’s attention because it was – – –

Answer:  GRIPPING

(Apparently . . . squeezing your opponent’s hand is – somehow – considered cheating!  I never possessed great arm strength, but I did – past tense – have strong hands.  One guy, who was stronger than me, said I was “cheating” by squeezing his hand so hard.  I always figured:  All’s fair!  Does anyone know if it’s actually some kind of foul???

No new clue words today!  However, all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  A little strange seeing three jumbles starting with P.  But, I was able to get all of the clue words immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  But, I thought the final answer was far from intriguing.

Fun arm wrestling cartoon.  It looks like “Stick” is holding his own!  Came a time when I was called a “Stick”.  More of a “Chunk”, as I got older.  I’m kind of in between now.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Say what? I never heard of that. I don’t see any mention of that in the rules of arm wrestling I found online. It would it be hard to measure or enforce.

    I did find an informal, unofficial discussion on an arm wrestling board where the same question was asked, and the consensus there was that squeezing the opponent’s hand hard is not a foul but might be considered bad strategy because it may tire the hard-gripper out faster. See:

    UR,

    I thought the answer was a bit Weak>>>>but still fun.¥

    If one is “GRIPPING” the foes hand too tightly I
    believe that it is not “cheating”, if the individual
    is lacking in arm strength!! ₩

    I also found this gripping. Especially the facial expressions of the Asian guy in the beginning in the right background. 😀

    UR,

    The seven dots represent the number 7 in God’s Eternal Existence…….7 represents completion and rest found easily in the Bible’s
    first Book, Genesis Ch 2:2 – 3 ^^^^^^^

    Okay. But, in what context were you posing the query? I don’t write seven dots. Are you explaining why you use them. To be frank, I’ve never bothered counting ’em. — YUR
