(A 13 letter answer is pretty impressive, guys!  The clue words were very common words, but they were all jumbled well.  The answer letter layout was a little suspect, but when you need a lot of Ps and a few Zs you’re pretty much stuck using “pizza”.  You could go puzzle, but then one of you clue words would be part of one of your answer words, and you’re still stuck with a PZZ.  Maybe using  jumbles of nuzzle or fizzle could have provided a ZZE.  Of course, now you’re going from a five letter clue word to a six, so you’d have to come up with one other five letter word, and . . . it gets complicated, people.  I met the guys today, up at the Mohunk Hotel in New Paltz, NY.  They were there for Will Shortz’s Wonderful World of Words.  Besides Jeff and David, I also was introduced to Will Shortz!  He has now been editing the New York Times crosswords puzzle longer than Eugene T. Maleska!  And, he’s much younger than when Mr. Maleska was doing it, so I’m sure that Will is going to set a record that will be very hard for any successor to beat.  Nice guy.  He even knew who I was – sort of – thanks to Jeff and David.  Our boys were very gracious to your old uncle, and the wife and I had a wonderful time.  I met their wives as well.  Linda and Joan, or something like that.  I stink with names theses days.  I’m getting old, kids!  I may be posting a picture or two in the coming days.  I’ll have to see how I look first.  Vanity thy name is unclerave!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
