“The manner in which one endures what must be endured is more important than the thing that must be endured.“ — Dean Acheson
(It’s all in how you handle things. I think that I used to be much better at handling things, than I am today. I’m sure that there are some things that I do handle better, but overall I just feel like things have gone just a little too far. And, I don’t seem to have the patience to handle some things the way that I know I could. I guess no one said that getting older was going to be a piece of cake! Be well, do good . . . and try to be measured.) — YUR

Clue/Question: The student driver was leery of this type of driving instruction.
Answer: A CRASH COURSE
(Pretty good! Of course, it’s just that much harder when you mis-read a jumbled clue word, and come up with RETORT instead of “terror”! Psst! Hey, Dave. It looks like no one has used RETORT before. I’m sick of the word “terror” anyway! It’s probably THE most overused word/excuse – along with *security* – of this young millennium. The sheeple loves their bogeyman words, though! Lawd-awmighty, how dey loves dem boogy-man words! Uh . . . back to the Jumble. No new clue words today. I don’t know if Mr. Hoyt was going for a hiding in plain sight ploy, or what, but the first two clue words were terribly jumbled. The later two were jumbled very well, and the answer letter layout was very good. Nothing subtle about Jeff’s drawing. A flat tire, an oil leak, plenty of dents and dings – to say the least – and the instructor’s arm in a sling sets up the answer very nicely. And, of course, the instructor’s patter is looking to rush the kid into becoming a student. Again with Wilco? Well, I guess no other band name fits on a tee-shirt like they do! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
PS. Wow! There was a lot of Doubting Thomas artwork to choose from! I thought that the Caravaggio was the most lifelike and powerful. I like the one by Guercino as well, but I think it’s a little overly dramatic. — YUR
