Why do birds sing in the morning?  It’s the triumphant shout:  ‘We got through another night!’”   —   Enid Bagnold

(I think nowadays that would be a pretty tough name to go throughout life with!  Not a lot of Enids out there, anymore.  And, coupled with Bagnold?  Hoo-boy!  She could have taken the easy way out, when she got married, and became Lady Jones.  But, she stayed with her maiden name, for professional purposes.  She was a fairly prolific author and playwright, with National Velvet being her best known work.  Her great-granddaughter is Samantha Cameron, wife of the U.K.’s current Prime Minister, David Cameron.)   —   YUR

Halfway Crooks in Asbury Park

Visual Description:  Slightly overzealous small-time crooks.


Clue/Question:  His scheme to steal $1000 was this.


(Not bad.  I flew through the clue words, even though they were well-scrambled.  There was nothing obvious in the answer letters, too.  Boy, a thou sure doesn’t go as far as it used to.   Does it?  When you split it three ways it’s hardly worth the effort.  I like the drawing within the drawing!  I thought there would have been more queries on yesterday’s Jumble, but it was about the same as Wednesday’s and Tuesday’s.  Go figure!  Have a great weekend, friends.  Be well . . . informed.)   —   YUR
