Visual Description:  An inexperienced international traveler.

SRACF  =  SCARF,  USISE  =  ISSUE,  DIMMUE  =  MEDIUM,  ARCPEN  =  PRANCE   —   Giving us:  SCAISMIMRAE

Clue/Question:  When the beauty pageant winner from the U.S. traveled, sometimes she would . . .

Answer:  MISS AMERICA

(Great pun!  The clue word jumbling was very good.  I had a little trouble getting “medium”, and as it turns out “medium” is new to the Jumble clue word database.  Hoyt did a bang up job on the answer letter layout.  I can see some of you having some difficulty in solving this.  The cartoon did a great job of telling the story though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Some people talk in their sleep.  Lecturers talk while other people sleep.”   —   Albert Camus

(Very funny.  For me, it all depends on the combination subject matter and lecturer.  Some subjects are going to bore you to tears . . . no matter what.  Some speakers are just too monotone and unanimated.  Ideally, you get someone who is a skilled speaker and the topic is of interest to you.  If it’s not ideal . . . they better not lower the lights!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR 

PS.  Sometimes I forget that Camus is more of a contemporary writer, and not a “classical” writer.  To my eye, his name is very similar to that of Dumas, who I think most would consider a classical writer.  Hey!  The are both Als!  Carry on, kids.   —   YUR
