When I go to the beauty parlor, I always use the Emergency Entrance.  Sometimes I mjust go for an estimate.”   —   Phyllis Diller

(The Queen of self-deprecating humor!  She was truly a groundbreaking comedienne.  She inspired so many other comedians.  Growing up, she seemed ever present.  Well, she had a 71 year career, and made it to the ripe old age of 95, dying of natural causes.  We all should be so fortunate.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  STATIONED

(A smart, stinky pun!  It made for a challenging Jumble.  This must be small town America though.  Channels 32 and 54???  Reminds me of the days of UHF.  You kids can ask your grandparents about that.

All of today’s clue words are re-runs!  Although, all their jumbles appear to be new episodes.  I even had trouble solving “older”.  I had to back into it.  And, without the O and D, that took me a little bit of thinking.  I know we sometimes use the word “station” for television channel, but I think that may be because radio came before TV.  But, the word “station” does designate a physical place, and we’re all stationed somewhere.  TV will broadcast from a station, but viewers access it from a channel.  Do you guys think I have a problem with getting older???

Fine cartoon of a television . . . studio!  Coincidentally, today’s “Shoe” dealt with a television newsroom!  I just heard that the weather lady in Denver, who some viewers body shamed . . . for being pregnant, recently delivered her baby!  Five weeks early, but Becky Ditchfield and her baby, Jeffrey, are doing fine.  Congratulations to her and her family.  To those viewers who trolled her . . . get a friggin’ life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
