(Not terribly challenging, but it’s a good pun!  All the clue words were well-jumbled old friends.  Years ago, I had a reader/commenter who liked to make up a little scenario using the clue words.  In memory of him, I give you:  I’d take “issue” with the man who might “flirt” with my Susie!  I would remove my “jacket” and throttle the “noodle”!  Thank you.  Thank you.  You are too kind!

Okay.  The answer letter layout is good, for being only six letters long.  The Jeff Knurek cartoon is full of lots of detail.  He was even able to squeeze in his favorite band’s name, on the lad’s tee-shirt!  For those of you who are new to the Jumble, and might have the reduced size cartoon, that would be . . . WILCO.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

My imagination can picture no fairer happiness than to continue living for art.”   —   Clara Schumann

Clara Schumann

(Possibly said soon after the death of her husband, Robert Schumann.  What a remarkable and talented couple they were.  He, an accomplished composer, and she an accomplished pianist and composer, from the Romantic era.  The story of their lives is filled with such romance and drama that I thought it would make for a great movie.  As it turns out, someone in the 1940s had the same – great – idea, and did make it into a movie, starring Katharine Hepburn, called Song of Love.  It was released in 1947.  I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it, but it looks like a great film with a great cast.  Obviously, Kate plays Clara.  Paul Henreid plays Robert Schumann.  You movie buffs would remember him as Victor Laszlo, in Casablanca.  The film also stars Robert Walker and Leo G. Carroll.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s shown on Turner Classic Movies, from time to time.  Who knows?  Maybe it’s even available On Demand.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
