(I wonder if Jim Nabors is a fan of the Jumble?  He’s still kickin’ at 84, soon to be 85!  They always say crossword puzzles and other word games help to keep your mind sharp.  I always liked his character on both The Andy Griffith Show and Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.  Two great shows from my childhood.  His speaking voice was always a little goofy, but he had a beautiful baritone singing voice.  There were some silly rumors about him and Rock Hudson, a bunch of years ago, but that’s all they were, just rumors.  They knew each other, but they weren’t a “couple”.

Anyhow, there were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles were new.  We’ve only – definitely – seen the jumble for “glory” before.  And, “glory” is one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order!  The answer letter layout was actually very good.  It took me a little while to figure out the answer.  And, it should have been a little more obvious, considering the quotation marks.  But, I was looking for something with an ING, initially.  Great cartoon.  Must be an Indiana ranch.  I hope ol’ Jim is doing whatever it takes to keep his mind sharp!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Though a good deal is too strange to be believed, nothing is too strange to have happened.”   —   Thomas Hardy

(But, exactly how a thing may have happened is always up for debate!  Strangely enough . . . this is the first Thomas Hardy quote since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
