(This one was tougher than it looked.  Even with the A and the I fairly obvious.  No words ended in E, and there were only two Es in the entire quotation, including the author’s name.  I had to write out:  C,F,G,H,M,Q,V,X,Z to figure out the G and the M for grammar.  I would have had this up sooner, but when I looked up Ms. Didion – I knew she was a writer – I invariably go through a kind of six degrees of separation.  My go to page for everybody is Wikipedia.  But from her bio I went to The Panic in Needle Park, to Kiel Martin, to Midnight Cowboy!  I never knew that J.D. Larue was up for the part of Joe Buck!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
