I heard the bullets whistle, and believe me, there is something charming in the sound.”   —   George Washington

(Great, George.  Way to *romanticize* war.  Of course, back in those days, the velocity, range and accuracy of muskets and pistols was pretty primitive, but they still could, and did, kill.  I wonder if Francis Ford Coppola and John Milius had this in mind when, writing Apocalypse Now, they came up with the now famous lines:  “I love the smell of napalm in the morning. yada, yada,yada The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill.  Smelled like . . . victory.”  There are just SO many other charming sounds in this world, George.

Happy Mother’s Day!  Be good to, and give praise to all the wonderful motherly women in your lives.)   —   YUR

Mother’s Day Jumble Spoiler – 05/08/11

Visual Description:  Special delivery, on a special day.


Clue/Question:  What giving birth was for the new mom.


(This takes me back, many years.  My boy turned 24 about a month and a half ago.  And, my baby girl will turn 20 in a little over a month.  Boy, the time sure do fly!  It’s nice to see that the guys are planning these Jumbles out, to coincide with holidays and special occasions.  I thought all the clue words today were fairly challenging.  No gimmes.  And, the answer letters weren’t laid out in any kind of obvious way.  But, I’m also sure that a number of you had no difficulty in figuring out the answer.  

Best wishes to all moms, past, present and to be!  And, to all those who act as moms!  I am blessed to have a number of loving, intelligent, and compassionate women in my life.  Have a very happy Mother’s Day!  We love you for all that you do.  Thank you, for all your love and support.  Without it, there is absolutely no way numbskulls, such as myself, could survive this crazy world.   Peace be with you wonderful women.)   —   YUR
