(I really like the mock Warhol on the wall!  I always preferred Alphabet soup to Tomato soup, anyway!  Is today Jeff and Kathy’s anniversary, or something?  If so, then congratulations!

I only had difficulty with one clue word, today, and it happened to be “laptop”!  I think I will always struggle, some, with compound words.  It’s just who yer uncle is!  Merriam Webster‘s has the word as first being used in 1984, but I don’t see when they first acknowledged it as such.  It is not currently in the ralis95 clue word database, so it’s a brand new word, as far as Jumble clue words go!  ralis95 loves adding new words to his database!

The answer letter layout was really great, today.  Nothing given away.  I can see some of you struggling to get today’s answer.  It wasn’t killer, but it’s a clever pun.  I wonder if Elegante’s serves a burger???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I would have given you a picture of Warhol’s Tomato Soup, but it’s copyrighted.  Fortunately, the Marilyn Monroe one is of a legal(?) knockoff!  Don’t know how the Aphrodite came up, but I never pass up the opportunity to post a lovely tush!      YUR
