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

    “Tomorrow” turned out to be another day, indeed! This was a piece of cake. ELIXIR took a second or two, but pretty much everything else was instant, including the final answer. 9 seconds total. 🙂

    We all see things a little differently, Vijay. While not all that tough, I found today’s to be more of challenge than yesterday’s. — YUR 🙂

    Indeed, UR. What is easy for one person could be tough for another. I was only referring to myself. 🙂 It was great to follow up a bad day with a good one!

    Just checking into say hi. Also in regard to your comments…Almost every day I get e-mails from people with one person saying a puzzle might be very easy, while another person will say it’s very hard…and they’re talking about the exact same puzzle. One time I had two e-mails come in at the exact same time from two different people with the too easy-too hard thing for the same puzzle. I get a ton of e-mails each day and it’s been very interesting to use people’s feedback to come up my approach to the difficulty level as a whole. It’s tricky. I sure appreciate you and your fans being a part of the overall Jumble science that gives me so much information. Thanks for doing what you do and thank you to all your fans for playing Jumble and commenting. It’s so helpful and I’m very thankful.

    There you go, Vijay. Even the big man has chimed in! Essentially, we all just refer to ourselves, and we’re all a little different. The one criteria that I can use – after the fact, of course – is the volume of queries that show up on my Stats page. The main thing is that we’re all out there, solving the puzzles and having fun doing it.

    Thanks for checking in, and the kind words, cuz!
