I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it, but by working for it.”   —   Estee Lauder

(Well, she certainly didn’t get there by her own looks!  Hoo boy.  She looks a little like Kirk Douglas in drag.  I know that’s not politically correct – or even nice – and it doesn’t address the quote, but that was my first gut reaction.  Yes, yer Uncle is a shallow, shallow man sometimes.  My wife would love her outfit though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(An astronomical Jumble!  I’ve always been a big fan of space and stargazing.  It’s both thrilling and humbling, at the same time.  I’m guessing that they chose the Moon, as opposed to Mars, where they’re relatively certain there actually is water/ice, because our Moon was once a chunk of Earth, just a scant 4 to 5 billion years ago.  Yes, someone rear-ended us – you know . . . the dark side – and it knocked out a big chunk of good stuff, and it’s been hanging around ever since.  Once upon a time, when absinthe and many drugs that are now illegal, but were legal at the time, people used to say that the Moon was made out of green cheese!  Musta been some good shit!  Now, we know that the story is a little more like the end of Planet of The Apes, than some guy with a case of the cheese munchies.  Do you guys still want the usual clue word, answer letter layout, cartoon critique, or was this enough?

Okay.  No new clue words, but three of the jumbles did come up as new.  I immediately recognized “haturo” as being used before.  The answer letter layout was a glimmering argent salver of a jumble, shining brightly against the blah de blah blah blah.  And, the cartoon was –naturally – out of this world!  I’m working with the reduced sized Jumble, but I can make out the Earth in the sky/space, and there’s a little alien face in the dirt in the foreground.  And, I guess you could call that backhoe a moon-raker!   Lots of fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
