Never worry about theory as long as the machinery does what it’s supposed to do.”  —   Robert Heinlein

(It’s got to be a line from one of his works.  It doesn’t sound like something someone would say to sound profound. Not a very inspiring or enlightening quote, and it was very easy to decode.  Blehh.)   —   YUR

PS.  At least Zemanta came up with a cool picture for me to post!     YUR

Visual Description:  A relatively friendly, family competition.


Clue/Question:  He finished second at the family reunion race behind this.


(Looks like Jeff is taking us back to the mid ’60s, with his King Family reference!  I was never a big fan.  A little too hokey for me, even at age 8.  And, maybe because it replaced The Outer Limits.  Now there was a TV show!  I think the first time I saw that I nearly pee’d my pjs!  Being 6 years old, I totally bought that they had taken over my television!  Great Jumble!  Nice scrambling of all the clue words, and the answer letter layout was superlative!  It looks like Mr. Hoyt is taking this aspect of this job very seriously, and we are all benefiting from it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  If you click on the pic, you get a bigger picture of the whole order of cousins.  First, second, etc. and once removed, twice removed, etc.  Nice to know.  It can get kind of confusing.   —   YUR
