A man’s growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(If you guys aren’t talking about, and recommending Unclerave’s then Unclerave’s isn’t growing.  Without growth there can be only one thing.  And that is death.  Fortunately, some of you have been talking, because we’ve been gaining new subscribers, and we’re getting new “Likes”.  So, let’s keep it going . . . and growing.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 04/27/12

Visual Description:  Pudgy iron pumpers and pedal pushers left in the lurch.

CHAWT  =  WATCH,  NDRIG  =  GRIND,  BUTARP  =  ABRUPT,  NISETV  =  INVEST   —   Giving us:  WAGIATIN

Clue/Question:  When they were late opening the gym, it resulted in this.

Answer:  WAIT GAIN

(Look at Hoyt, using “abrupt” twice in the same week!  Trying to be all sneaky an’ she-it!  As long as the jumbling was different – and it was – it’s all good.  No new clue words, today . . . again.  I guess David L is giving ralis95 some time off.  None of the clue words were all that difficult.  The answer letter layout was good, and the answer made for a good pun. 

How many of you guys are going to run out and sign up for a membership to “Sweatie’s Gym”?  Huh?  Not many.  I know the boys are trying to expand their Jumble empire, but I don’t think “Sweatie’s” is going to add much to their bottom line.  Maybe they should work on something called “Jumble Gyms”, where you have to perform certain exercises/physical activities to get individual elements of a Jumble, and/or other word game.  Each jumbled clue word would require the completion of a specific task, determined either by a trainer, or the individual exerciser – once he/she reaches a certain level – before advancing to the next activity and jumbled clue word, culminating with viewing the cartoon and clue/question.  Most gyms have a variety of monitors linked to various exercise machines already, so it would take incorporating some fairly simple computer programs to make it work.  It would be a great way to work both the body and the mind.  Of course the name would be a play on the words jungle gym, the structures that kids climb on, and also the old Johnny Weissmuller character, Jungle Jim, from his post-Tarzan years.  How ’bout it, Jeff and David?  Just have your girl call my girl and we’ll work out all the details.  Be well . . . be fit and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
