Most women set out to try to change a man, and when they have changed him they do not like them.”   —   Marlene Dietrich

(I don’t know about “most women” trying to change their men, but I do know that the ones who do try to “change” them usually end up failing.  And, it’s kind of foolish anyway to try.  You have to accept people for who they are.  If you don’t see enough pluses, just move the heck on.  I think Marlene may have been the originator of RBFResting Bitch Face!  Of course, my daughter taught me that expression!  It’s so hard finding a photo of Ms. Dietrich smiling.  It’s always sultry, or sullen.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It’s the friends you can call up at four A.M. that matter.”   — Marlene  Dietrich

(Compared to yesterday’s, this one took me a millisecond to get!  That good old apostrophe and the word “that” really got the ball rolling, this morning.  Actually having the newspaper in hand is also a big help for me.  Yesterday, I had to access the online version of my paper.  At first I just wrote it out freehand, and I had no luck.  So then, I figured out how to print it out, and for a long while I just looked at it, quizzically.  Finally, I went with what I thought would be the Es, made a couple of mistakes, but was able to spot my errors.  I nearly thought I was going to throw in the towel on both the cryptoquote AND the jumble!  That would’ve been a very sad day for your Uncle Rave.  Getting that cryptoquote gave me the confidence to give a last look at the jumble.  Then it all became so obvious.  Stay warm, folks.)   — YUR
