Jumbling Dice? Spoiler – 07/26/11

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

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

MAREF  =  FRAME,  FLFUB  =  BLUFF,  POTEDP  =  TOPPED,  ETWRET  =  WETTER   —   Giving us: REFTDTE

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!

    I swear we had no idea it was Mick’s B-day! Wow! David gave me the Ringo puzzle one day off from his birthday, and had no idea as well that his birthday was close, and we just move IT to coincide. I know it’s only Rock and Roll, but I like it!

    Hey, Jeff. Have you heard “I Might”, off of Wilco’s new album/cd, “The Whole Love”? It’s pretty good, bro.

    Yesterday’s Jumble generated a good number of visits. Maybe today’s will, as well.

    Rock on! — YUR

    Yep! Got my tickets to see them Sept. 13th. to open their tour here in Indy. Jumble Jeff will be wearing his Wilco shirt that day as well 🙂

    Oh, to see the Stones live! Great puzzle today! Pretty easy, but that didn’t matter because the drawing was something any age could relate to!
