Jumble Spoiler – 01/26/19

Visual Description:  Avoiding the opera???


Clue/Question:  William Clement invented the Grandfather Clock because he was able to – – –


(A phrase that I always detested!  Usually, you’d only hear it from one of your douchier manager/bosses, as a *smart* response to:  If I can find the time.  Technically, both making and finding time are not really possible, but creating time is even less likely than ending up with some free time, during a busy day.  The phrase is popular with the same clowns who like to say:  Work smarter, not harder.  To them I like to reply:  How ’bout a nice cup of STFU!

Today’s clue words and jumbles were a little unusual, in that none of the clue words are new, and only one of the jumbles – “kehri” – is new.  Although, we have had kehir before.  The other three have definitely been used in the past.  The answer letter layout was the best jumble of the day.  Eleven letters long, and nothing obvious in it.  Good work, David.

A fine period piece cartoon from our buddy, Jeff.  I did not realize that they go all the way back to 1670.  We kind of take clocks for granted these days, but these kind of pendulum clocks were reliable and accurate pieces of timekeeping technology for over 300 years.  And, now we all know who invented the grandfather clock!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Old man Clement would rather MAKE THE TIME than go to the opera with his wife!
    DEMMO is probably the best rearrangement of MODEM.
    Hope your knee is on the mend, UR.

    It’s getting there, roy. I’m walking fine, but it’s still a little hard bending it. But, like I said, I should be okay in a few days plus, if I behave myself. — YUR
