Clue/Question:  When the chiropractor returned from vacation, it was – – –

(Mainly “back”.  But, it looks more like a shoulder and arm situation, this time.  I can remember when chiropractors were considered “quacks”.  A lot of people in the established/traditional/western medical field are still a little leery of them.  Well meaning friends have tried to refer me to them over the years, but my mom instilled the “quack” factor in my brain, from a very early age, and it has stuck.  I’d sooner see an acupuncturist, but I haven’t done that yet either. 

We have another new clue word today, in “strict”.  Doesn’t it seem that it’s always a very common word that is a “new” word?  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database yet again!  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “soybs” having definitely been used in the past.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fourteen letter jumble.  I didn’t see the answer immediately, but it didn’t take very long to get it.

Another fine cartoon.  The guy/patient looks to be in a bit of pain.  Sometimes the cure hurts more than the condition.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Children are innocent and love justice, while most of us are wicked and naturally prefer mercy.”   —   G.K. Chesterton

(Another form of “It’s easier to get forgiveness than permission”, which some people seem to live by.  Then, you can mark me down as a child, because I still value justice over asking for mercy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There must be at least half a billion rats in the United States; of course, I am speaking only from memory.”   —   Bill Nye

(A fairly amusing quote.  And a fairly simple solve though.  The Thought for Today was:  “The willing contemplation of vice is vice.”  Ironic, considering the episode of “Law and Order SVU” I’m watching as I type this.  Chilling!  On a much lighter note it is Rosey Grier’s 87th birthday today!  Happy birthday, Rosey!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Some people with great virtues are disagreeable, while others with great vices are delightful.”   —   La Rochefoucauld

(I kind of feel like I cheated with this one.  I was pretty sure I identified the E right off the bat, but the A gave me second thoughts, because EEA is not all that common.  So, I looked at the author, and saw it was most likely ED, DE . . . or LA, and I quickly recognized the famous Frenchman.  That gave me a lot to work with.  I don’t know why I sometimes have trouble spotting PEOPLE.  Maybe the X’s threw me off today?  The quote is just so true!  Give me a man, or woman, with vices any day!  Virtuous people can be such a bore.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The submarine in the sea between Australia and New Zealand was – – –

(Ooh!  That is definitely a stinker of a pun.  I’m sure the ventilation systems in the newer subs are pretty good, but in all the old movies – usually WWII sagas – everybody looks hot and sweaty, and grimy/funky.  Ugh!  Hey!  When these guys surface in the Arctic Circle are they Up Over?  Maybe, that’s how the Inuit refer to their territories?  Okay, all you Eskimos out there.  Am I close???  LOL!  You folks may not appreciate my sense of humor, but I’m cracking myself up!

Even before checking, I knew that today’s clue words were already members of the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “guave” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was an operational nine letter jumble.  It was hard to hide what I thought was a pretty obvious answer, mostly based on the clue/question.

Fine submarine cartoon.  Jeff omitted the typical periscope shot, so I thought I’d throw one in.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.”   —   Edmund Burke

Clue/Question: It was his turn at the pool table now that the previous player had – – –

Answer:  CUED HIM IN

(Gotta love this stinky pun!  It’s a classic stinker for, a hot and sweaty Friday!  Nice little play on:  CLUE HIM IN.  But, you all – not y’all – figured that out by now, all on yer own!  I’m really getting tired of hearing people trying to sound country, and/or southern.  Not everybody from the South says it all the time, and it just sounds so forced from some of these clowns.  ENOUGH . . . y’all!

Four long time members of the ralis95 clue word database today.  But, all four of the jumbles are coming up as new.  Both “drimea” and “cucear” made me think.  But, they both just took a couple looks.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  It did a fine job of hiding the final answer.  Nice work, David L. Hoyt!

Great pool room scene cartoon.  Have you ever noticed how Jeff almost always makes himself look smooth and hip, but he usually makes David look more on the nerdy side?!  What up wit dat, bro???  If you don’t watch yourself David is going to lay a major head-butt on yer noggin!  That’ll be lights out for you!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
