(Ooh!  A double pun!  A bicycle pedal, and the precious metal!  I really can’t claim much about today’s solve, as I let my daughter and her boyfriend do the Jumble today.  All the clue words looked very familiar though.  But, all of the jumbles came up as new!

The answer letter layout was a very impressive 16-letters long.  And, nothing jumps out at me as obvious.  I think this one might have taken me quite a bit of time to solve.

Great pawn shop cartoon.  The clerk looks like the stereotypical sleazy kind of guy that would work/own a pawn shop.  Championship rings, World Series trophy, and a Super Bowl trophy, along with the standard musical instrument.  Very nice.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I can almost smell that store. I miss them so much. There were so many in the 1980s and now hardly a few. I may be my fault, I guess: never the kind of virtuoso who’d play Stairway to Heaven ad nauseum. I’d hang there for hours, though, never daring to play my little playing in front of them. Now it’s all gone, and soon enough, so will I. Sorry, didn’t mean to be so doomed. Cheers, anyway lol

    I actually got through a Sunday Jumble for a change. I don’t normally do them, but sometimes the answers come fairly quickly so I spend some more time on it. Today was one of those days.

    I did get one of my electric guitars from a pawn shop. But it was from their flea market operation, not their regular store. In hindsight, I probably paid a decent price for it. And I think it’s a rule of every music store that you never play Stairway or Free Bird in them; it’s a guaranteed way to get kicked out, so I’ve heard. 😀

    That photo of a music store threw me for a spin. Sorry

    LOL! Do they allow “25 or 6 to 4” and/or “Classical Gas”??? — YUR

    Heh! Classical Gas is probably OK, at least today since most folks don’t really remember it. Can’t say anything about 25 or 6 to 4, but it does also remind me they also take a dim view of people trying to play Eruption like Eddie Van Halen. I’m of the mind that the less mainstream the riff the better. Which is understandable since the employees are there all day and if everybody that comes in to try an instrument keeps playing the same thing, it gets old fast.
