You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.”   —   Francis de Sales

Answer:  ROUND TRIP

(Figuratively, and in this case literally, as well.  Most orbits are a bit more elliptical, but this one looks very round.  No new clue words again, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I really enjoyed the jumbles for “usher” and “forbid”.  Once again, the answer letter layout was lovely jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  If it weren’t for the image on the monitor, in the cartoon, it would have taken me much more time to get the answer.  That clued me into “round”, and the remaining letters gave me “trip”.  It’s always fun when Jeff gives us an old television show, or movie.  Brent Spiner, aka:  Lieutenant Commander Data, turned 67 last week!  I had no idea he was that old.  I always figured he was my age, or a year or two older.  Belated Birthday wishes to him!  And, Happy Birthday to Conrad Janis, who turned 88 today.  Can you guess his tele/space reference?  No?  Well, I’ll just tell you then.  He played Mindy’s father, Frederick, on Mork & Mindy, back in the late ’70s early ’80s!  And, while I’m at it, I’m going to send wishes to six beautiful ladies who are also celebrating birthday’s today: Tina Louise, Catherine Hickland, Carey Lowell, Sheryl Crow, Jennifer Aniston,  and Marisa PetroroI have an affinity for Aquarian women.  We’re supposed to be most compatible.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
