(I don’t think pun critics would call this one “stinky”!  It brought me back to the early ’70s!  What a talented duo Simon and Garfunkel were.  Such beautiful, harmonic melodies.  The kind of music that stands the test of time.  I remember seeing their reunion concert in Central Park.  I think it was 1980, but it could’ve been ’81.  That was probably my personal Woodstock.  We camped out early in the morning and were there all day and most of the evening.  I seem to remember catching a little grief for singing along just a little too loud.  Apparently, some people wanted to hear them . . . instead of little old me.  I can’t help myself, and I don’t think many people can.  Besides, I’m not that bad of a singer.

There were no new clue words today.  ralis95 can rest easy.  However, all but the jumble for “menace” were new jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a superb jumble.  I don’t think it gave a thing away.  I was pretty certain the second word was going to be HIMSELF.  So, when I saw the remaining OMOPSEC the rest fell into place, right away.  Very good likeness of Paul and Art.  And, I like the gold records on the wall.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    What a jumbler!!!! Oriole…oh my! I kept trying to come up with silence, silent, sound, lots of N words, but no N! Finally had a quiet moment this morning to sit down and really study the puzzler. Finally felt like himself had to be in the jumbled letters because of the wording in the puzzler, and it was…compose came quickly after that. Soooo many grand puzzlers this past week! Thanks so much guys and Unc!!

    And if y’all haven’t checked out Just Jumble for your phones, you ARE missing out on a great app! LL

    Worked on it until today on-and-off. I finally ended up on your website to find the answer. Unscrambled the seven letter word ‘foolish” which threw me off for good. Thanks
