I don’t know what you could say about a day in which you’ve seen four beautiful sunsets.”   —   John Glenn

(Probably THE first, and maybe THE greatest, American hero of my lifetime!  Navy and Marine pilot, who flew numerous combat missions in WWII and Korea.  He even flew a number of missions with the great Ted Williams, of Boston Red Sox fame.  Probably best known as an astronaut who was the third American in space, and the first American to orbit the Earth.  And, a four term U.S. Senator for the state of Ohio.  He also returned to space in 1998, at the age of 77, for the purpose of studying the effects of space flight on the elderly.  The man is a Rock Star, in my book!  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I missed his birthday last week.  Sorry, sir!  John Glenn turned 90 on Monday, July the 18th!

Visual Description:  The Undersea World of . . . Jacques Gamesheau?

TABYT  =  BATTY,  NMSIT  =  MINTS,  GLHAEG  =  HAGGLE,  UNAALN  =  ANNUAL   —   Giving us:  ATTMNTHAEANU

Clue/Question:  When Mr. and Mrs. Albacore had a baby, they played this.

Answer:  NAME THAT TUNA

(You can hear the moans and groans for MILES and MILES on this one!  But, to my way of thinking, if you’re NOT fond of puns; why the Hell do you do the Jumble in the first place?  I was reluctant to go with “mints”, because it appeared to be a plural noun.  But, then I realized that MINT is also a verb, so it’s all good, folks!  “Batty” and “haggle” were pretty simple, but “annual” might have thrown a few of you, for a while, because it starts with a vowel.  There was no giveaway with the answer letters, today.  And, that’s always – as Martha Stewart would say – a good thing!  Cute, nonsensical cartoon.  I suppose today’s Jumble could have been difficult, for those not familiar with either; the StarKist Tuna mascot, Charlie The Tuna, or the old game show Name That Tune.  But, I’m sure sure all the Boomers – and older – got it, with no problem whatsoever.  I sure hope today’s was a Dolphin Safe Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PSI rock at Name That Tune, folks!  Just as I rock at Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!

PPS.  The word “Hell” generates a lot of funky, scary, Medieval artwork in the Zemanta gallery.  Too many people have very sick imaginations!
