Clue/Question:  During the California gold rush, this land owner had a – – –

California Miners


(Another fairly tough solve!  But, there were lots of clues, I guess.  The quotation marks and the hyphen in the final answer slots, and the little tracks – to nowhere – in the cartoon.  I usually think of those kind of tracks going into a mine that’s already been started.  But, I guess our guy does things a little differently.

I’m coming up with two new clue words today, in “runny” and “meekly”.  I was very surprised  to not see “runny” on the ralis95 clue word database.  “Meekly” sounds a little familiar too.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “sokki” before.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was nicely cryptic.

I think it’s a fun cartoon.  Just a little on the goofy side.  Speaking of holiday cartoons . . . well, I kinda started with a reference to one . . . have you guys seen the uproar over Apple TV buying up the rights to all the Peanuts holiday specials?  People are pissed!  These shows have been on network television forever, and now Apple wants to charge us to watch them.  The world is going to Hell in a hand basket!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    As I suspected with MEEKLY, it was a Sunday! I have no idea how ralis95 could’ve missed RUNNY! Maybe someday he will bequeath me the actual database. Currently, I receive a read only copy. Thanks for the research. I know you love it, Ange! — YUR
