(Neil is an accomplished astrophysicist . . . among other things, so he can afford to compliment his own wisdom, in such a way.  All I can say is: the more I learn, the more I realize that I have a lot to learn.  And, there are many, many things that I will probably never be able to learn.  But, I have learned to accept that.  I keep plugging away though!  There’s a really good reason why the words learning and living are so frequently intermingled.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  OH, BROTHER

(I like it, a lot!  It reminds me of the time my buddy Mike came into work with a curly permanent.  He was like a big brother to me, who was this big Irish guy from Far Rockaway, who normally had hair as straight as mine.  I remember giving him hell about.  But, he was always good natured, around me at least, and besides he liked it, so he kept it for quite a while.  It was a big departure from his original looks, so I can just imagine how an actual brother – an identical twin, no less – would give him some verbal abuse.  I wonder how old Mike is doing?  He still owes me some money!

We had some marvelous jumbling today.  Some of it old, some of it new, but all of it good.  The jumblings of “bravo” and “factor” have been used before, but they’re fairly challenging.  “Harsh” was pretty easy to figure out, but it was a new jumbling.  We even have a new clue word today, in “season”, so ralis95 will have to update his clue word database!  You’d think we would have seen “season” before today, but no.  The answer letter layout was sufficiently cryptic, but it could have been better.  Switching the words around, and dropping the O from “bravo” and later picking it up in “factor” would have made it a little more difficult, in my opinion.  Fun cartoon!  I think that is big Mike’s leisure suit!  Powder blue, if I remember right!  Maybe it was “salmon”.  It’s not pink, it’s “salmon”!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
