Jumble Spoiler – 02/21/11

The barber

Visual Description:  Unexpected outcome at the barber shop.


Clue/Question:  What happened when the barber gave him a crew cut.


(Not bad.  Fairly common clue words, except for “alight”, I guess.  All around great scrambling, but especially the answer letters!  The answer is not all that difficult, but at least it wasn’t given away by lazy scrambling.  Nice going.  Expected about 3 inches of snow overnight.  Got closer to 6!  And, all I can do is watch while others shovel.  Life is strange.)   — YUR

    Hi, everybody! I have not checked in for awhile, but my hubby and I have been faithfully doing the Jumble. Just like my golf game, I usually cheat at the end these days with the Jumble. I don’t have much patience sometimes to figure out the scrambled solution, as I also don’t have much patience for putting! I only cheated a little on this one with “grew.” With the Jumble, Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune my mind is becoming a well oiled machine. HA!
    A week or so ago you talked about Boone’s ashes by his favorite spot to sleep. I’m sure you miss him terribly, but here is a short story for all to feel better on sad days when you miss a loved one, pet or person. My late husband who died when he was 58 from a stage 4 brain tumor was a great guy, volunteer firefighter, scubadiver, skier, and fabulous woodworker. So…after he passed I had a mission he sent me on. I spread his ashes around my former house, outside his office window where he worked as a building inspector of our small town, and gave some to his sister to spread on his parents’ grave. Friends put more around a tree on an expert trail at Killington Ski Resort, and I took his PADI dive card to Negril, Jamaica and did something with it there (Afraid to take ashes on plane with sniffer dogs.) Finally, my girlfriend and I threw ashes into the Passaic River because Bill loved boat rescues there. It was a windy day! You can guess what happened. I also had Eternal Reefs make a reef ball of some of the ashes, and I saw it placed in the ocean off the coast of Charleston, SC. Finally, I kept some, now in a memory box. It took a year to accomplish. I healed. So, that’s my story, and I hope my ideas will make someone who reads this smile, heal, or feel better today! Off to do today’s Jumble, and I promise I will not cheat!

    Atta girl, Lesley!

    Thank you so much for the great story. Your Bill and I definitely share at least one thing in common. I too wish to be cremated, and have my ashes divided and spread (mainly) in a number of locations that have special meaning to me. The only portion that will not be *spread* is an amount that I have promised to be placed with my wife’s ashes – to be. (Fortunately, she’s still alive and kicking!) I think the dividing and spreading, of my ashes, is likely to piss off my kids, but they’ll just have to deal with it!
