Clue/Question:  When the moles moved into their yard, the owners didn’t care for the moles’ – – –

California Center on Teaching Careers on Twitter: "Happy Mole Day! Mole Day  is an unofficial holiday celebrated by chemists and chemistry students on  October 23 in honor of the mole, a measuring


(And, that’s the mole truth, and nothing but the truth!  We usually hear more about mole hills – as in making a mountain out of a mole hill – but mole runs are a more common sight in my neck of the woods.  Fortunately for me, I’ve only had them in my backyard, where it’s a little more wild and natural.  They’re just a very minor nuisance.  But for someone’s pristine front lawn?  Ugh!  They’re a real eyesore!  And, I suppose they’re a bit of a hazard as well.  But moles can be beneficial to your yard/lawn . . . if you’re having a problem with grubs!  They love to eat grubs and beetles, and worms.  Hey.  They’re God’s creatures too!

All of today’s clue words have been used before.  However, it’s looking like all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  They all came to me right away.  I’m sure Ken could come up with a cute short story with these clue words!  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic.  After about 20 seconds I saw UNDER.  That left me with NKGAIT . . . for the TAKING!

Great suburban couple, looking out their living room window, at the two cute little moles.  I like how the runs are interspersed with a few mole hills.  Hey, they gotta come up for air!  Anyone remember the 1950’s horror move:  “The Mole People”?  It starred Beaver Cleaver’s dad, Hugh Beaumont!  I probably saw that movie at least three or four times on TV, when I was a kid.  They played a lot of ’50s movies on TV in the early to mid ’60s.  It was one of my favorites, along with “Creature From the Black Lagoon”.  Good, campy fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    My sister has been battling moles for years! She’s tried everything to get rid of them! They really like her yard!

    They can be quite the nuisance! After they cleared up my grub problem they moved on. — YUR

    Huh!! I wonder if she has a grub worm issue that keeps the varmints in her yard!! Guess it’s possible that the worms haven’t been eliminated in this length of time! I’ll pass that tidbit along. Thanks Unc!

    On a field trip in Montana we were exploring some caves…my GUIDE had a KNACK for the weird, like slowly savoring a locally grown RADISH while he spoke…said it gave him insight(?¿) {I think it was more than a RADISH!*}
    …but his INTENT seemed noble☆…anyway, the amazing event…as we were in a rather large cave a group of moles were spotted playing cards and sipping suds???¿…I was aghast and rather in a daze!!…my GUIDE reassured me that it was Ok, that it was a myth that moles spent almost all of their time underground…can you dig it?? (Boo, Hiss)…the GUIDE said he contemplated having some as pets but decided he didn’t need a new basement…HaHa?¿

    Back in the saddle again,,,busy, busy…HeeHaa^
