(Easier said than done.  Everybody’s got opinions.  And, where else would you be as free to express them than at home, with your family?  Just don’t get too crazy!  The author line made this too obvious for me.  Too bad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BOATLOADS OF THEM

(A picturesque stinky pun.  Not as stinky as Venice in July, as I’d imagine.  When I was there in April of 1990 it was still cool, and a little rainy.  So, I don’t really know what it’s like in the hotter summer months.  Just that canals, in general, can tend to get a little funky then.

Hoyt used all familiar, old friend clue words today.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “tarroo” before.  I thought that “yahonw” was a sneaky little jumble.  It took a couple of looks.  The answer letter layout was a fabulous fifteen letter jumble.  But, the final answer slots quickly led me to OF THEM.  And, from there  BOATLOADS became readily apparent.

Typically great Jeff Knurek destination cartoon.  For accuracy, he made the kids completely oblivious to their experience, as they are more interested in their cell phones than the sights.  Makes me kinda glad that I’m not that age.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
