9 odd but true facts about The Odd Couple

Answer:  INTO THE FOLD

(David L. Hoyt is going to be folding all night, to Jeff “The Shark” Knurek and company.  He definitely needs to get better cards, and a better poker face too.  Good thing he has scads of disposable income!  A fine Jumble pun!

All of today’s clue words are – once again – familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  We have seen “nuhod” before though.  The answer letter layout is another excellent eleven letter jumble.  But I picked up on this pun right away today.  The final answer slots may have been a clue.

Another great continuing poker night cartoon.  Jeff has always had a group of regulars.  It looks like someone is missing though, and David is filling in for them.  He’s a good sport.  But he’s going to go home a little lighter in the pocket.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Reba McEntire Returns To Young Sheldon For Second Appearance This Season |  The Country Daily

To succeed in life, you need three things:  a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone.”   —   Reba McEntire

(Very true!  Fortitude, a sense of humor, and a good bit of luck are usually needed to get ahead in this world.  Reba has certainly done very well for herself.  My daughter loved her show “Reba”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Claude Monet (7 interesting facts about life of the great artist)

Nobody can count themselves an artist unless they can carry a picture in their head before they paint it.”   —   Claude Monet

(A brilliant painter, but a little myopic when it comes to his definition of an “artist”.  Sure painters are artists, but so are sculptors and others in the physical media.  And, also singers, musicians and actors are all considered artists.  But, by Claude’s definition, I am definitely no painter.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Night Court: Where Are They Now? | ScreenRant

Answer:  TRYING TIMES

(Thankfully, these probably aren’t trial by jury cases.  The judge can make her decisions based on a number of factors and plea appeals/deals.  But the sheer numbers have a way of slowing the wheels of justice.  And, in many cases justice isn’t always served.

No new clue words this day.  However, all of the jumbles appear to be new this day.  Strangely, it took me a few looks to unscramble both “oliog” and “tmreta”.  The answer letter layout was an excellent eleven letter jumble.  The final answer did not jump right out at me, like it usually does.

Fine municipal/family court scene.  We have the harried judge, perturbed bailiff, and worn out stenographer.  Kind of reminiscent of the old “Night Court” series, back in the 1980’s.  Sadly, I think the majority of the cast of that show has died.  I think that Bull & Roz – two of the bailiffs, Dan Fielding, and Billie – who preceded Christine – are about the only cast/characters still with us.  Sad.  It was a good show.  Supposedly, there’s a reboot of “Night Court” in the works.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Sorry about the delay in posting.  I had a minor domestic crisis that threw my day way off.  All’s well now.   —   YUR
