If you cannot make knowledge your servant, make it your friend.”   —   Baltasar Gracian

(Certainly knowledge does serve us well, but referring to it as a servant just kind of rubs me the wrong way.  Since I think we should all strive to serve each other, maybe we should all make knowledge our friend.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Rapid Eye Movement.

PRUNS  =  SPURN,  SATEE  =  TEASE,  LNAFEL  =  FALLEN,  YUSANE  =  UNEASY   —   Giving us:  SPTEFALEAS

Clue/Question:  The track star Usain Bolt dreamed of breaking records when he was – – –

Image result for Jamaican Flag

Answer:  FAST ASLEEP

(I wonder how fast Usain can solve the Jumble?  Probably not as fast as our old friend Vijay, from Cal Tech!  Too bad he no longer follows us.  Oh, well.  He came into our lives for a season.  Best of luck to him!

There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We have definitely seen “pruns” in the past.  None of them were terribly difficult, in my opinion.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful jumble too.  By itself, it gave nothing away.  The cartoon is a lot of fun.  It reminded me of “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head”, with the line:  “And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed”.  Actually, no ones feet are too big for their bed.  It’s their body, in total, that’s too big.  But, it’s the feet that end up extending over the bed.  But, it’s a great song, and it was featured in a great movie.  If you guys have any other Captain Obvious type questions, just fee free to ask.  I’m great at stating the obvious!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
