(Aww!  Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely mothers out there!  My son and daughter came over with my wife’s favorite Korean food, and now everyone is relaxing on the couch.  One of my step-sons has checked in, and sooner or later we’ll also hear from the other one too.  Of course, I bought her roses, chocolates, a card, and one of her favorite baked goods too.  She’d rather stay in with family than going out to some overcrowded restaurant.

There is no need to alert ralis95 today, as there are no new clue words.  However, all six jumbles appear to be new, to me.  I had a little trouble with “grille”, even though I pretty much knew it couldn’t be anything else.  The answer letter layout was a fantastic fifteen letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  I saw CHILDREN first, then quickly figured out RAISING.

Great cartoon of Mrs. Kathy Kent-Knurek, and a younger Sydney and Cam.  I think a lot of us parents always kind of think of our kids as they were when they were little.  Those kind of memories just get etched into the brain, and I’m sure we’ll take them with us to the grave.  If your mom has passed on, raise a glass to her memory, and tell her how much she meant to you.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Alistair Cooke – Learning from Dogs

Hollywood grew to be the most flourishing factory of popular mythology since the Greeks.”   —   Alistair Cooke

(I just watched a movie last night that is now nine years old, called “Django Unchained”.  It’s directed by Quentin Tarantino, so it is wildly entertaining, yet younger viewers should not buy into it as historically accurate.  Similar to his World War II psuedo drama “Inglourious Basterds”.  They’re both fun, cartoonish romps, full of gratuitous violence, but misleading and ridiculous at the same time.  Both of these movies likely had Alistair Cooke spinning in his grave.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Which Children's Books Did Beverly Cleary Write? |

Children should learn that reading is a pleasure, not just something that teachers make you do in school.”   —   Beverly Cleary

(It’s much more fun when you can read at the appropriate level.  Slow reading becomes a kind of chore, even when the subject matter interests you.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Great Jumble pun!  And, not stinky in the least.  Maybe a little slimy, but that’s what you get with fish.  You’ve also got to be careful how you handle certain fish, as some have spiky fins, and you can get jabbed.  Handling fish is just something you have to get used to if you want to go fishing.

No new clue words, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We have definitely seen “tyupt” and “nirhed” in days gone by.  The answer letter layout was a splendid twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was commendably cryptic.  I got UP and WITH first, then I wound up with the entire punswer.

Fine cartoon of a father and daughter sitting in a rowboat, enjoying a day of fishing, out on a lake or large pond.  A fun day of familial bonding.  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
