(Yeah.  Frankie was never a big fan of Rap and Hip Hop.  I’m kidding, I’m kidding!  I meant . . . Country.  No, still . . . I’m just kidding!  Considering when Frankie lived, maybe he was talking about Opera!  I used to hate all Disco songs, but now they’re golden oldies.  I can take hearing them, now . . . in very small doses.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Not bad!  I don’t think the answer was abundantly obvious, by any means.  I had to think on it a bit.  After looking at the answer letter layout, for about 10 seconds, I soon decided the second word was HIS.  From there the other words – that make up the familiar phrase – came right to me.  None of today’s clue words are new, but four of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “gedder” and “slipho” before.  I had to skip, and come back to, “conany”.  Other past jumbles of “canyon” have been easier for me.  The answer letter layout was a nifty jumble, that I don’t think gave anything away.  The cartoon is a great casino scene.  Hey, Jeff.  Just stay away from Syd and Cam’s college funds!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yesterday was a HUUUUGE day for visits to Uncle Rave’s Wordy Weblog!  Didn’t quite break the record, but there were 5861 total hits.  SPWIRA carried the day!  I don’t know how Marvin and Art found that jumble so easy.  It appears to be a jumble for the ages!   —   YUR
