(Some non-billiards players might not get this.  But, I’m sure that this is generic enough for most to get.  The pool table has six pockets, four corner and two side.  It’s a great game of skill.  Understanding angles some basic rules of physics comes in handy.  I used to be a little better than average at it.  But, that was many years ago.

There were no new clue words today, but they were all jumbled well.  One of the jumbled clue words even passed the WordPress spell-check.  It looks like it recognized GENNIE as a name, because it didn’t underline it in red.  Maybe the WordPress people have drank beers in Rochester, NY???  Explanation upon request.  The answer letter layout was sufficiently cryptic.  The cartoon reinforces some stereotypes, but I like how Jeff drew the bulging pocket of change on the bald guy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
