“No matter what

people tell you,

words and ideas

can change

the world.”

~ Robin Williams

A kind word, like soft water

will eventually make the roughest stone smooth,

will render the hardest heart compassionate.

Any idea that makes this world a better place for all

is an idea worth sharing.

Continue to share the kindness and the love

knowing that in this lifetime or in the next,

the world will change and

hopefully it will be for the best.

Kindness is the word and idea that can change the world.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.

Answer:  DIGGING IT

(Yeah.  But, we can dig it!  The Jumble, that is.  The clue words are all tried and true, but they seem to have come up with all new jumbles.  I didn’t think that any of them were difficult.  The answer letter layout was swell.  With all the Gs and Is, and the shovels, and “moving dirt”, it didn’t take much effort to figure out today’s answer.  But, the medieval, period cartoon was very entertaining!  Once upon a time “Dig it” was kind of my catch phrase.  It’s a great phrase.  My Dad always used to ask:  Ya dig?  He was the farthest thing from being a beatnik – as he was a Marine – but it was a popular part of the vernacular in the early ’60s.  Today is the 10 year anniversary of his passing.  Time flies!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing.”   —   Robert Benchley

(I guess I wasn’t feeling it today, because I took the easy way out, by looking at the author’s – first – name!  It took me a long time to come up with Benchley, and I had to write out the spare consonants to come up with drawing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NO DICE

(Do NOT pass Go!  Do NOT collect $200.  Go straight up to the room with your wife, and take a chance on a different kind of . . . slot machine!  That’s my advice to the guy.  Much better odds for a winning night.  We have no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  “Dirty” is one of those clue words that spells out alphabetically . . . and sometimes describes yer uncle’s mind!  Good answer letter layout.  It’s tough to hide short answers though.  It looks like our buddy Jeff is full of craps!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise.  It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us.”   —   Ashley Montagu

(And, enjoy them while you can.  Life is short, unpredictable, and not always fair.  The moments of happiness will stay with you, and help buoy the troubled waters you’ll encounter.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  APPLYING HIMSELF

(A pun that takes the literal . . . and applies the figurative!  Or, vice versa.  Very nice, either way.  Uh, guess what, guys?  We have a new clue word today, in “visual”!  Can you believe it?  It’s been part of every Jumble Spoiler since sometime in 2008, but it’s never been used as a clue word, until today!  Will ralis95 pick up on this?  Depends on whether he reads the email this should generate.  Most of the jumbles were new, with the exception of “noycot”.  They’ve used that for “tycoon” before.  Wonderful answer letter layout.  It didn’t make the answer obvious for me.  At first, I was thinking the second word might be  PLAYING, but then FEPMHISL didn’t want to cooperate.  But, by removing the P, I was able to see . . . HIMSELF!  The now leftover P fit right in with PLAYING, to make for APPLYING.  Hey!  Whatever it takes.  Classic Knurek cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

"Forgiveness 6" by Carlos Latuff.

Too err is human, to forgive takes restraint; to forget you forgave is the mark of a saint.”   —   Suzanne Douglass

English: Graphic on forgiveness

(Maybe, that is why so few of us are destined for sainthood?  Too few who forgive are willing to forget.  Maybe, it’s easier when the forgiveness is of the unspoken kind.  When I reunited with my father, after 20 + years, there were no apologies . . . and no verbal forgiveness.  We just were.  We went on to have 15 years of a regular relationship.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
