TIONNO  =  NOTION,  NOFLYD  =  FONDLY,  SMIRPH  =  SHRIMP,  WRROBO  =  BORROW,  TEPLOP  =  TOPPLE,  HERBUC  =  CHERUB   —   Giving us:  OIOFODSHIBORTOLCHR

Clue/Question:  He didn’t order the lobster bisque because it was . . .

Answer:  TOO RICH FOR HIS BLOOD

(Wow!  18 letters!  That’s one of the longest answers in a good long while.  Don’t ask me what the record is, because your Uncle don’t keep track of dat!  This took me a little longer than usual, only because I messed up writing the last three letters in the answer letter layout.  For some reason, I wrote CER, instead of CHR!  From the wife’s comment, I knew it had to be FOR HIS BLOOD, and I started out checking off the letters for TOO RICH FOR, which left me with ODSIBOLE.  I pulled BLOOD from that, and was left with SIE.  I scratched my head and checked off the letters for FOR HIS BLOOD, and was left with IOTOCER.  TOO RICE???  Hmm!  Maybe, I should re . . . DOH!  Oh, well!  These things are going to happen from time to time.

I’m seeing both TOPPLE and SHRIMP as new words, but I’m not completely comfortable with either one being new, so I’ve referred them to ralis95 to check against his master database.  I ate at a place as fancy as this just last night.  It was at a place called Seasons, in Washington Township, NJ.  It was for the 90th birthday of a really sweet old girl!  Had a great time, despite nursing some kind of cold, or something.  A lot of whacky stuff going around, right now.  Take your echinacea, zinc and vitamin C, folks.  And drink plenty of fluids!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
