Why more of us are suffering from hay fever than ever before

Doctors say hay fever can be positive or negative.  Sometimes the eyes have it, and sometimes the nose.”   —   Anonymous

(Very cute quote!  But in my newspaper the cryptogram was broken up, so that the third line started with a T, and the fourth line with FGST.  So, initially, I thought that the T was either the A, or the I.  This slowed down the entire process for quite a while.  I suspected the S was the E, but I couldn’t really act on that until I figured out SOMETIME

S . . . and SOMET

IMES.  Also FEVER is surely NOT as common as NEVER, you rarely see the word HAY, and even EYES is not the first word that comes to mind from that short cryptogram.  And, it seems like forever since we’ve had an ANONYMOUS author, so I didn’t pick up on that for a long time either.  But solve it I did!  Was it messed up in other newspapers?  Or, was I the only lucky one?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Stop worrying about what Junior will do when he grows up – better go see what he’s up to now.”   —   Anonymous

(LOL!  If he’s an adolescent he could be up to anything.  Kids have a great way of aging their parents.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Mamma Agata's Tomato Sauce - the taste edit

Twas the night before Christmas, or so sayeth the book, not a creature was stirring, excepting the cook.”   —   Anonymous

Living with Open Hands

A luxury resort is a place with tropical plants outside and outstretched palms inside.”   —   Anonymous

(It’s a shame that this is Anonymous, as someone should get credit for this very clever quote.  Again, it took me a while to get this one started.  I knew the “Z” had to be either the “I” or the “A”, but guessing the “O” was “L” helped me see PLACE and PLANTS.  I really like this quote!  Been quite a while since we’ve had an Anonymous!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”   —   Anonymous

(A lovely thought, and it’s very true.  But, most of us kind of get locked into the quasi-negative, self-defeating mindset.  Oh, and don’t forget about laziness and procrastination!  Knock those bad boys out of the way, and you could even achieve those goals and dreams.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

At the timberline where the storms strike with the most fury, the sturdiest trees are found.”   —   Anonymous

(Even with all the THEs, and other E’s, this one took some time to solve.  Neither “timberline”, nor “sturdiest”, come up in quotes very often.  It’s been quite a while since we’ve had an Anonymous too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It’s easy to make a friend.  What’s hard to make is a stranger.”   —   Anonymous

(Yup!  Once you know someone, you know them, and they’re no longer strangers.  Unless – God forbid – you have some form of dementia.  Then you can meet the same person over and over again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
