Clue/Question:  His attempt to impersonate Henry Winkler was a . . .

Answer:  FONZIE SCHEME

(I think this one even gets a groan from me!  After thirty years, or so, even Henry Winkler doesn’t look like The Fonz anymore.  The usual good jumbling of the clue words.  Only “wrench” is new to the ralis95 clue word database.  Great answer letter layout.  This might have been tough for people who don’t know the sit-com, Happy Days.  For the rest of us, I think we all figured out pretty quickly that one of the words would be FONZIE, and we were able unscramble ESEMCH, relatively easily.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I sorta remember, Wimpy. After the first 3 years I kinda lost interest. I probably saw it it re-runs though . . . with my kids.

    Back in the day, when David and I were running around Hollywood pitching tv show ideas, we were in a meeting where the exec wanted to have some guy named “Henry” take a look at it. Well in walks Henry Winkler. He was producing Hollywood Squares at the time and had very little time to look at anything. Well he sat through my pitch, ask questions and turned out to be there 20 minutes and when asked what he thought by the exec, he said it was not only great, but the best kids show idea he’d seen. That was enough for them to get us a meeting at Nickelodeon. The idea has sinse come out by someone else but it was great meeting him. And quite an ego boost. It took every ounce of energy to NOT say “Aaaaayy”.

    Wow, that’s a great Fonzie story! I loved anything Henry Winkler has done! Jumble was easy today…thank goodness, for I have very little patience these days with the world. Maybe I should take a Fonzie attitude! Ha!

    Our man, Jeff, has been livin’ the life! The last I saw Henry was as the wayward dad, on Royal Pains. Entertaining show, but I think something else I like was opposite it last season, as I didn’t see many episodes.

    I actually had a problem solving the puzzle! Got Fonzie, but left out an E on my solving sheet–and kept leaving it out every time I checked back to make sure I had the right letters. So, came online and checked to see what I was missing — then, puzzle solved!! Hard to believe Happy Days was so long ago.
