You can make a good living from soothsaying, but not from truthsaying.”   —   Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

(Tell me about it, brotha!  Blogging the truth has gotten me nothing but a modest following.  I hardly get squat from the adds you’re now seeing.  Maybe I should move this blog to a different venue.  I don’t know.  I am going broke here!)   —   YUR

Jumbling Dice? Spoiler – 07/26/11

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

Visual Description:  Mick struttin’, while Keith’s strummin’ hits a snag.


Clue/Question:  When his guitar string broke during the performance, he did this.

Answer:  FRETTED

(Gotta love it!  Stones, baby!  Very nicely timed with Mick’s 68th Birthday, today.  Happy  Birthday to my brotha-from-anotha-motha!  Wow.  I really must have been an afterthought.  There is nearly 14 years between our births.  Of course, cousin Keith LOOKS a LOT older than the Mick, but he’s actually younger, by about 5 months.  Too bad there wasn’t enough space for cousins Ronnie and Charlie, but whadayagonnado!  Very nice tribute, Jeff.  Who woulda thought that these guys would still be going strong at this age?  I coulda swore that they would have faded away – or worse yet, died – in the later ’70s.  I remember seeing Mick give an “interview” during the celebration for the Bicentennial, back in 1976.  I’m not sure if he was *baked* to a delicate crunch, or *fried* to a crackly crunch, but he was positively kafackled, my friends!  Ahh, youth!

Hey!  The Jumble itself was not too shabby, as well.  Some fun clue words, all well-scrambled.  And, nothing obvious about how the answer letters played out.  Good work, Hoyt.  Be well, do good, friends.  And, keep on rockin’!)   —   YUR

PS.  Here’s a little vintage title(?) song struttin’ by the birthday boy.  Enjoy!
