Answer:  STAY CALM

(What’s not to like about today’s Jumble?  You’ve got Gilligan, the Skipper and Ginger GrantAlthough, surveys show that Mary Ann Summers was the one most guys said they’d like to be stranded with on an island!  The pun is alright, but it’s the cartoon that makes today’s Jumble special.  No new clue words, but all of the jumbles did come up as new.  I actually erred on “plaid”, by writing down “palid”.  The real word I was thinking of is pallid, but this still gave me the necessary A and L.  Which only goes to show – and pay close attention you unenlightened ones who sometimes disagree with yer Uncle’s points of view – even when I’m wrong . . . I’m right!  Thank you.  Thank you.  I’ll be here all week.  Try the veal.  Besides enjoying patting myself on the back, I’m also going to start a new urban legend.  Today’s cartoon is the precursor to our beloved Jumble’s classic sinking sailboat.  Yeah.  The winds finally picked up, but Gilligan navigated our friends just a little too close to a reef.  And . . . well . . . the rest is Jumble history.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/09/16

prosperity0909.jpgYou will only be remembered for two things:  the problems you solve or the ones you create.”   —   Mike Murdock

(I’d venture to say that ol’ Mike has created more problems than he’s solved.  At least for other people that is.  Unless they’re really entertaining, like Ernest AngleyI always loved that guy – most televangelists are just leeches, in my opinion.  Here’s a little snippet from Wikipedia on the guy “. . . as well as his extolling viewers currently mired in credit card debt to add another $1,000 in credit charges in order to support his church and “wipe out your credit card indebtedness” by having faith in God.”  Talk about preying upon people’s emotions!  It’s hard to pin down, but it looks like his net worth is between 5 – 6.5 million.  Not bad for a college dropout.  There are a lot of other damning tidbits, on this user of desperate souls, that I could post, but they would probably offend some of our more right leaning regulars.  So, I’ll leave well enough alone.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
