Answer:  PAID OFF

(Phew!  What a relief!  Credit card debt can be crippling.  I thought that some controls were put in place, back during Obama’s terms, that said they couldn’t charge such ridiculous rates.  And, I thought there was a cap on late payment fees.  I get offers all the time, where the teaser is 0% for the first 12-18 months, but then after that it’s 22.9, 23.9, and 24.9%!  Are they kidding us???  That is USURY!  The banks can borrow money from the Fed at 0.25%!  That is one quarter of one percent!  If you deposit money with them – in a checking account – you might get from 0.10% up to 0.25%.  Some online only banks pay somewhat better, 1.01%, but they don’t offer credit cards.  There is no way to quantify the disparity from the rate the banks borrow money versus what they charge their customers via their credit cards.  It is positively criminal.  But we all just seem to accept it.  What a bunch of freaking sheep we are.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve surely seen “rxyop” before.  I was able to see all the clue words immediately this morning.  The answer letter layout was a satisfactory seven letter jumble.  Kinda tough to make a two word, seven letter, answer challenging.  I’m sure that most of us got it nearly instantly.

I like how the guy looks like he’s in a white tee-shirt and boxer shorts!  Could be me!  And, how the wife is doing the online bill paying on her Pineapple laptop!  Yer uncle still feels more comfortable using the traditional keyboard and a full size monitor, that I can easily read!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
