The seal depicts the first human-controlled, powered flight made by the Wright brothers in December 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. NACA was later incorporated into the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 1958. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(Gee.  I guess things were really looking up for them that day!  Nice big shot of . . . the sky, one guy pointing up, another guy giving two thumbs up, and EVERYBODY gazing up!  Wow.  I guess Jeff really thought we’d need a road map to solve today’s answer!  With all that we were given today, if you struggled getting the answer, then maybe the Jumble isn’t really for you.  Try the word search!  That can be fun, too!  I’m just messing with you, folks.  Keep doing the Jumble.  They won’t all be this obvious.  There were no new clue words today, but there was some sneaky jumbles in there.  I actually had to back into “lethal”.  I kept wondering if lathe was spelled like llama!  See.  I’m certainly no genius, myself.  The answer letter layout was fine.  It didn’t really give anything away.  I think I would have started with “slowly”.  Eh!  It’s a nice cartoon.  I think everyone looking up was definitely overkill though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UNC- I hate to admit it as I fancy myself as a Jumble guru but I finally got final answer this morning. I had a mental block thinking sky’s had to be spelled SKIES. Oh well. I beg your mercy… GO YANKS….WIMPY

    Thirty lashes with a wet noodle, Wimp-meister! But . . . if the spelling of “SKY’S” was your only trip up, that proves to me that you processed the preponderance of UP clues, and knew the answer. You just had a slight technical difficulty in getting it out! — YUR 😉

    Very sneaky jumbles, especially lethal and slowly. Emblem was found quite by accident!!! And, yes, after I solved the puzzler (and it came almost immediately, so maybe it was intuitive and I didn’t realize it). Guess I’m kinda in Wimp’s camp on this one. Good one guyz!
