Visual Description:  Alone again, naturally.


Clue/Question:  When the marine flatfish was the only fish around, it was the – – –

Fish Identification: Petrale Sole (Eopsetta jordani)

Answer:  SOLE SOLE

(A stinky pun, yes.  But I loves me a nice fillet of sole!  It’s one of the few fishes that I actually enjoy eating.  I also like swordfish, and tuna steaks.  I like the meatier fish.  But – surprisingly – I have zero interest in shellfish.  I’ll leave all of those bottom dwellers to the rest of y’all.

No new clue words today.  Our friend ralis95 can get back to having cocktails by the pool.  All of today’s jumbles did come up as new for me though.  None of them were too demanding though.  The answer letter layout was an easy eight letter jumble.  Especially considering the final answer slots, and the clue/question.

Fine depiction of a lonely soul . . . er, sole . . . at the bottom of the ocean.  Yeah, they’re considered bottom-feeders, but I don’t need all that iodine and tropomyosin.  I always enjoy when Jeff gives us the result of the classic sinking sailboat.  Hey, it’s got to end up somewhere!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”   —   Robert Louis Stevenson

(This sounds a little backwards to me.  You can plant thousands of seeds, with no guarantee that anything is going to grow.  I’m not a big fan of when people write so figuratively/metaphysically.  RLS led a very interesting, though relatively short, life.  Born in Scotland, then back and forth between England, France, and the U.S.  And, on to Australia, numerous Pacific islands, and finally to Samoa, where he died at the age of 44.  A great and prolific writer, whose works have been translated into languages all around the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
