“Sometimes things aren’t clear right away. That’s where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead.” — Mary Pierce
(I thought this was going to be a quote from a 19th Century writer, or something. But it turns out it’s from the women’s tennis player, now retired. I remember her now. Great player, and easy on the eyes. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

English: Davy Crockett 1967 Issue, 5c (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
(A nice groaner to close out the work week! There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new. The only one that I can see as already being used was “nopver”. “Omega” gave me a little trouble, but the others came to me right away. The answer letter layout was nicely jumbled. If it weren’t for the quotation marks this might have been a tougher solve. Nice cartoon. Pretty generic looking politician. How many Republicans are still in the Presidential race? 16? More? Yeesh. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. I just got the results, from my doctor, on the MRI of my left knee. I have a torn lateral meniscus . . . and he said it’s – somehow – flipped with something! So, even though I’m walking pretty well, with a knee brace, I should be up and running again after the surgery! Can’t hardly wait! — YUR

(My paper doesn’t carry the strip, but I think it’s still a going concern. I know Johnny Hart died a while back, but I think his kid or grandkid, is running with it still. I think he also did the Wizard of Id. I’ve always been a big fan of the funny pages!
No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new. We’ve definitely seen “latyl” before. At first I was very impressed by the 13-letter answer letter layout, and the answer being just the one 13-letter word. But, after looking at the cartoon, and the clue/question, the answer became pretty obvious, to me. What are the three round things below the cave painting in the background? Is this supposed to be a primitive TV, a la The Flintstones? That Jeff is such a kidder. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

“I know I’m small but I’m also big. I’m big because I’m connected to the universe, and the universe is connected to me.” — Neil deGrasse Tyson
(I just KNEW this was part of a larger quote! My man, Tyson, LOVES to talk! LOL! I think some of it is because Neil loves to hear himself talk. The other part though is that he loves to impart his knowledge upon others. And, that is the part for which I’m grateful for. Smart people are very entertaining. Especially, well rounded smart people. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Polski: LOGO LAPTOP (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Answer: NO TELLING
(Great pun! There were no new clue words today. Three of the jumbles were new, with only “finek” having definitely been used before. I had to back into “laptop”. It’s a compound word, and I’m guessing the word has only been around since the 1980s. The answer letter layout was another great jumble. Nothing obvious there. The dialog in the cartoon, and the clue/question were the big clues. Cute bar scene. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Answer: CASH COW
(Kind of a figurative/literal pun. Not too stinky. We appear to have a new clue word today, in “weakly”. Our friend, ralis95 will have to update his world famous clue word database accordingly. Three of the jumbles came up as new, with only “murst” having definitely having been used before. The answer letter layout was another great jumble. The cartoon was very entertaining. Love moo-cows!
