If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.”   —   Margaret Thatcher

(I gotta wonder what ol’ Maggie was like in the sandbox, as a little tyke!  Brrrr!!!  Be well and do good, friends.  But, don’t worry about being liked!  LOL.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/01/17

Image result for pre Beatles Richard Starkey

Visual Description:  Ringo’s earlier Liverpool lads.

GODUH  =  DOUGH,  THACC  =  CATCH,  ROPURA  =  UPROAR,  MURBEM  =  BUMMER   —   Giving us:  DUHURMM

Clue/Question:  When he chose a stage name, Richard Starkey chose one that wasn’t – – –

Answer:  HUMDRUM

(Can we get a rim-shot???  Ba dum tssshhh!  Good stinky pun.  No new clue words, but a couple of new jumbles, in “goduh” and “ropura”.  We’ve seen both “thacc” and “murbem” before.  All should’ve been pretty easy to get today.  Unless you consider “bummer” to be a bit too slangy a word.  The answer letter layout was another good jumble.  The cartoon – alone – is worth the price of admission!  A very good likeness of Ringo and his pre-Beatles mates.  Fun-ky hairstyles, great suits, and fine instruments.  A very fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
