They teach you there’s a boundary line to music.  But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.”   —   Charlie Parker

(Except in coloring books!  But, feel free to color outside the lines anyway!  “Bird” knew not to listen to the naysayers.  Be well, be brave and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for Arnold Palmer

Answer:  UPTIGHT

(Maybe she can switch to the aisle seat.  Boy, those economy seats are really crammed together, aren’t they?  There were no new clue words, however all of the jumbles did come up as new.  Decent answer letter layout, for a seven letter answer.  Cute cartoon.  You can see the displeasure on the face of the captive audience.  Maybe she can pull a Moe Howard, and bonk their heads together!

Boy.  We were just wishing Arnie a Happy Birthday a couple of weeks ago, and now he has left us!  Such a shame.  Another one of my heroes bites the dust.  Arnold Palmer made golf what it is today.  His combination of skill and charisma transformed golf from a snooty, elitist game, to an every man’s populist sport.  He was Muhammad Ali before there even was a Muhammad Ali . . . but for golf.  People loved him, and he loved people.  I was one of the many lucky people to get his autograph.  A beloved American icon.  He will be greatly missed.  Rest in peace, Arnie!

Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The bodybuilder knew he was in love after experiencing – – –

Pre-Answer:  Two Words   (6-letters)  (8-letters)

Image result for Weight lifting

Answer:  STRONG FEELINGS

(For about half a minute, I was looking for a more complicated answer.  Something with endorphins, or something.  But, then I quickly saw the pun!  No new clue words, but five of the six jumbles were new.  They’ve used “leronl” sometime in the past.  The answer letter layout was a fairly challenging jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon is great, and it reminds me that I need to get to the gym!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

My photographs do me an injustice.  They look just like me.”   —   Phyllis Diller

(What a funny lady she was!  And, a real ground breaker.  She was the first female comedian that I can remember.  Even before Joan Rivers.  Almost always a self-deprecating style of humor.  If you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?  But, when she was young she was actually very attractive.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
