“Because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” — Edward Everett Hale
(This is part of a larger quote, and – it seems – a paraphrasing of certain versions. But, it’s still a good quote. A fairly simple solve today. The wife and I saw “Lion” yesterday. A beautiful film! Very touching and engrossing, with great acting. It’s the only Oscar nominated film we’ve seen this season. We would like to see “Arrival”, “Moonlight”, “Hidden Figures” and “Fences” as well, but we’re in no hurry to see “La La Land”. Even though they all say it’s great! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

Clue/Question: It only took about 50 years to go from the Wright brothers to the 707. – – –
Answer/Continuation: TIME WAS FLYING
(A slightly different clue/question format today. It had me going for a bit, because I failed to follow my own rules! Normally, after I’ve solved each jumble and written out the answer letter layout, I add up both the letters in the answer letter layout AND – as a check – the number of letters in each word of the answer. For whatever reason, I did not do that today and, as it turned out, I had neglected to write out the letter G. Every letter is important in solving a puzzle, but the G was really key . . . for me. No new clue words today, but three of the jumbles did come up as new. The guys have used “hyyls” before. Great answer letter layout. Very well jumbled. And, a fun cartoon. It’s a little hard to see the propellers on the 1937 plane. And, its wings should be a little straighter. The teacher looks a little like Tom Hanks. But, stereotypically, the young lady looks very disinterested in the lesson. Not only boys like airplanes and jets, you know! I like giving Jeff a hard time sometimes! Somebody’s got to keep him on his toes! Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR 😉
