Be present and open to the moment that is unfolding before you.  Because, ultimately, your life is made up of moments.”   —   Jessica Lange

(Aah!  Mindfulness!  That’s the current buzzword for living in the moment.  It’s good advice, but it kind of runs contrary to how most of us have been raised, to always be thinking about the future.  Be prepared!  Ya gotta plan!  Ya gotta save!  Contingencies! Contingencies!!  Contingencies!!!  Remember “The Ant and the Grasshopper”!  We need to temper all the stress of preparation by seeing the forest for the trees.  And just breathing, and appreciating the now.  Too many parents miss out on so much of their kids lives, by not doing this.  Don’t be a lazy lump, but grasp the beauty of the present.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  THE PITS

(A pretty simple, stinky pun, for a Wednesday.  I’m pretty sure we’ve seen a similar one, in the past, with cherries instead of peaches.  Coming up with new ideas is not always easy, so we learn to take the wow with the meh.

None of today’s clue words were new, but all of the jumbles came up as new!  I was able to see them all right away.  The answer letter layout was a decent jumble.  I think the shorter answers are harder to hide anyway.

The cartoon is full of great bakery details.  The ovens, the head lady with the the pies ready to bake, the peeler/slicer women, the bowls of sliced peaches, and the pile of pits.  But, the best thing is the bushel basket of peaches, to emphasize that they’re fresh!  This Jumble may not have reached new heights, but it was far from being the pits!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
