(A really great pun!  But don’t people usually stay in bed & breakfasts because they want something a little more quaint and old fashioned?!  Something different from your basic hotel rooms?  Isn’t that why folks pay a premium to stay in them?  Although, I’ve never stayed in one.  And, I’ve never used VRBO, or Airbnb.  Maybe next trip!

All of today’s clue words are already on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  However, all four jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  I thought they were all a decent challenge.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  By itself, I thought it was sufficiently cryptic.  The quotation marks and the hyphen were major clues.

Interesting cartoon of the modern looking B & B.  It looks like late 1960’s modern, to me.  A bit austere, and sanitary looking.  I don’t think I’d enjoy it very much.  But . . . to each their own!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Since you’ve been largely transparent with details of your personal life, a couple of personal questions if I may:

    Who created the painting/graphic image that adorns your web blog (I’ve always found it interesting)?

    How did your relationship with the gentleman who started ralis95 come about?

    Jamie, it has been 14 years since I selected that painting, or portion of a painting, for my header. I believe it might be Wassily Kandinsky, as I remember trying to find his The Blue Rider, which I had a print of in my office, during my banking days. But it could’ve been one of his contemporaries. I had no luck back then finding the specific The Blue Rider, as I guess he did a series of them, so I ended liking the painting – or portion of a painting – that you see. WordPress has made things a little more difficult for me to navigate over the years, so I don’t think I can even get to my header page anymore.

    ralis95 was one of my earliest readers, and he enjoyed the posts so much that he just reached out to me. We became kindred spirits, and he started sending me a copy of the database that he had been compiling for a number of years. He also sends a copy of the database to David L. Hoyt. My wife and I have actually met he and his wife on a couple of occasions. He’s 24 years my senior, so he’s really getting up there. He’s a great guy, and we occasionally speak on the phone. We’re buds!

    Thanks UR.

    All the best,

    Jamie and UR: Isn’t it nice to see someone call me a “gentleman”, what a hoot! I’ll be 88 in December and retired as an Executive from the Space Shuttle Program in ’95 (hence ralis95) — you figure the clue. My wife and I just love UR and his wife, having visited them in NY and they visiting us in CA. His personal touch to solving the Jumbles clues and answers was the key to my being attracted to his site – and that same touch carried strongly over into our personal relationship since.

    A gentleman AND a scholar! AND a rocket scientist! (so to speak) Yes, the wife and I have a mutual admiration for ralis95 and his lovely wife as well. We don’t see eye to eye on every single issue, but we have a healthy respect for each other’s opinions. Because that’s the way it USED TO be, and that’s the way it still SHOULD be. Some of us are fortunate to still understand this. As Audre Lorde once said: “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” — YUR
