Long-range planning does not deal with future decisions, but with the future of present decisions.”   —   Peter Drucker

(This one was difficult to get started.  No “A” or “I”, no double letter words, and only a few words ending in “e”.  It’s a good quote, but it just didn’t move me at all.  That’s just how it goes some days!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 10/30/11

Visual Description:  Reaching new heights in ballooning.

SEUFRE  =  REFUSE,  MOLCNU  =  COLUMN,  LHIWEA  =  AWHILE, NIRIGA  =  AIRING,  OUIRST  =  SUITOR,  EADSYW  =  SWAYED   —   Giving us:  RECOAWAGITRAYD

Clue/Question:  They were able to win the hot-air balloon competition because they . . .

Answer:  GOT CARRIED AWAY

(Knowing the first word had to be “GOT” helped me figure out the answer, which helped me back into “swayed”.  I just couldn’t figure that clue

word out.  Maybe, if I had written out all the possible letter combinations, but you guys know how lazy I’ve been lately.  Anyway.  I had some trouble getting “airing” and “suitor”, but not like “swayed”.  Great jumbling and great answer letter layout.  A very nice Sunday Jumble.  I was kind of surprised we actually got the Sunday paper, with the storm and all.  We didn’t get it until early afternoon, but at least we got it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Suspicion

Suspicions amongst thoughts are like bats amongst birds, they ever fly by twilight.”   —   Francis Bacon

(Mmm!  Bacon!!  This was a tough one to get started.  No “A” or “I”, and not a lot of “e”s.  Also, there were no double-letter words.  But, we got it.  Didn’t we?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PGYPU  =  GUPPY,  KCIQU  =  QUICK,  NCISTH  =  SNITCH,  SMUAPC  =  CAMPUS   —   Giving us:  UPPICKNTHAMP

Clue/Question:  What they would use to fix the broken jack-o-lantern.

Answer:  A PUMPKIN PATCH

(That Charlie Brown is such a BLOCKHEAD!  It’s a good thing that Linus is so resourceful.  But then again, who’s going to be sitting in a pumpkin patch all night, waiting for The Great Pumpkin to shower him with goodies and gifts???  Not old Chuck!  He’s going trick or treating, and is going to get a big bag full . . . of rocks.  Ahh.  Good times.  Too bad my kids are grown.  Now, I have no excuse to watch these shows.  Although, I do still try to watch Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer every year!  And, A Charlie Brown Christmas, of course.  With both of those shows it’s all about the music for me.  I just love the Vince Guaraldi jazz and those Burl Ives songs.  Anyway, I only had trouble getting “snitch” today.  I got lazy and backed into it.  I don’t know why I found it so hard.  I guess it was just great jumbling!  Everything else was pretty easy.  Great cartoon, Jeff!  We already had our first trick or treater!  The kid said school was closed, so why not?  Be well and do good, friends.  Don’t gyp your neighborhood kids, folks.  If you do, then you deserve to get your windows soaped and your trees toilet papered!)   —   YUR
