Answer:  STROKE OF GENIUS

(Does this feel like some kind of re-run to anyone else, but me?  The drawing, with the trick shot is new, but I think we’ve seen the pun, in a sports related Jumble, before.  Either way, it makes for a great Jumble!  There were no new clue words today, but the jumbling was swell.  The jumbling of “fusion” and “income” and “gender” seemed new to me.  The answer letter layout was a hole-in-one!  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon is very amusing.  Looks like Jeff is pulling for a lefty!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Kind of ironic that one of the clue words is “income”.  My wife is about to kick me off the computer so she can figure out, and file, our taxes before the dreaded deadline!      YUR

Most persons would succeed in small things if they were not troubled with great ambitions.   —   (H. W.) Longfellow

(I think that there is more than a touch of sarcasm in this quotation.  I do many small things very well – including this blog? – and what do I have to show for it?  I think this is Longfellow’s way of saying:  Take care of the big things, and the small things will take care of themselves.  I liked how they made this quote look like it was from one of the famous, one-name authors, like Socrates or Cicero.  Maybe some of our complaining is paying off!  Aaah!  The power of the internet . . . blog!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
