(Great pun, for a great card game!  I haven’t played Uno in quite a while, but it’s a fun game.  It’s a great family game, but it’s also fun just for the adults.  There is another card game, that’s very similar, by the same company I believe, but I don’t remember the name.  Maybe, one of you guys know what I’m talking about.

No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have seen “radug” in the past.  I thought “nicdda” was a great jumble for “candid”.  The answer letter layout was beautifully cryptic.  I quickly figured the second word had to be CARDS, but it took me a couple of seconds to see DRAWING in RAGNDWI.  But, the word “artist”, in the clue/question, quickly lit the fuse, and . . . boom!  There we were!  Jeff is – once again – promoting WILCO.  “I don’t care anymore.”  The lady – his sister? – is acknowledging the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller‘s Day Off.  The one boy is rockin’ a Cubs shirt/jersey, and the other is acknowledging the career of Kobe Bryant.  All worthy appreciations!  The toddler girl just seems happy that she’s getting to play the game.  A very nice jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
