My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.”   —   Errol Flynn

(I had a heck of a time getting this one started!  I tried for BLESS, CLASS, GRASS, SMALL and THREE, with no luck.  GROSS was the last word I would have thought of.  And, with the author’s first name I tried ALLEN and WOODY.  I even considered ALLEY.  I toyed – for a minute – with the last name being SCOTT.  My only instincts that really helped me was making the N’s into I’s, and O’s into N’s, and then the Y’s into E’s.  Switching my A’s – for the Z’s – to O’s was also a big help.  When I finally saw it was Errol Flynn I felt like such a dope!  This quote is hilarious.  Errol was quite the clever, handsome devil.  I remember a television movie about his life, called “My Wicked, Wicked Ways”, in the 80s.  It was his autobiography.  Too long ago to remember if it was any good.  He definitely loved to party, and he loved the ladies though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.”   —   Errol Flynn

(This one – literally – gave me headaches!  The double letters in “gross” and in the author’s name threw me for a loop!  No single letter words!  No “the”, “are”, “and”, “one”, “for” or “but”!  I thought the LX was TO for the longest time, and also thought the U was the S.  I finally just said that YGPWW was DRESS.  Then Errol came into view — somehow!  And . . . and . . . this was the hardest one for me in ages!  Very amusing quote, though!)   —   YUR
