Clue/Question:  After the guitarist donated his kidney, he became this.

Answer:  AN ORGANIST

(Very good.  The clue word jumbling was great.  I struggled some with both “omega” and “attend”.  I saw “cabin” and “strand” right away.  None of the clue words are new today.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  And it’s a great cartoon.  It looks like either an older brother, or maybe even the dad of our Jeff, from somewhere around his college years.  Good for you, bro!  Who’d you give the kidney to, Jeff?  Is he still making good use of it?  It’s never come up for me, but I’d do it, if asked.  My driver’s license does say Organ Donor, but that only kicks in if I kick it.  Yesterday’s Jumble Spoiler garnered a ton of queries.  I really should have made it into the contest.  It could have been HUGE!  That’s my impression of Donald Trump.  You shoulda seen my comb-over and exaggerated lips.  I kill myself!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A person is always startled when he hears himself called old for the first time.”   —   Oliver Wendell Holmes

(A little startled, but not all that upset.  Because it means that you made it, or at lest survived, to old age.  And, there’s also the satisfaction of knowing that the person doing the calling will hear it themselves, one day.  Don’t get caught up in the numbers, people.  Age is mainly a state of mind.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
