The Last Leaves

Let’s hear it – NOT clear it – for the trees! We need them more than they need us. Planting new ones is all well and good, but we need old growth trees more than some silly little saplings. If more states – or the whole country – legalizes hemp and marijuana we would not have to chop down another tree for paper! — YUR
PS. No, I do not – and likely would not – partake in the ingesting of marijuana. — YUR

The Day When Forests
Won’t Have Any Trees

Climate emergency, – a man-made executioner we fear so much that we’ve sent our own children to do battle with – has always had a fierce opponent, even before it needed one: trees. Living beings that ushered us to the present, they’ve got all it takes to save our future.
As long as they’re standing, that is. But stood have many, for millennia. As we see forests, we miss what makes them one. Trees may be downed, but nothing kills their gift for being reborn. The history of the world is told by thousand rings inside their girth.
They tower and endure. They come as big as cathedrals, and as old as a religion. Life travels from roots to high up branches, as they hang on to Earth as its own giant limbs. Trees have been blowing oxygen down our lungs for…

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?”   —   Milton Berle

(Probably about as close as we’re going to get to a quote that’s related to dads, or Father’s Day!  We here just SO much about misogynists these days, but nary a word about misandrists.  I guess it’s perfectly acceptable for some women to hate all men.  Can’t we all stop generalizing, and start judging each other on our individual merits?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TURN A PROFIT

(A double pun, or a little cheating “bonus clue”?  Hmm!  You know, you can’t make a TURN without an URN!  But, it’s all in good fun.  I was probably one of THE worst potters to ever sit behind a wheel.  I had no touch whatsoever.  It was always either too thick, or I’d go just a little too far, and it would kind of sag.  Which was always kind of sad.  Yes, I was really bad.  Which rhymes with dad . . . but that’s for tomorrow’s Jumble.

We have yet another new clue word today, in “chimp”!  Our good friend ralis95 will be updating his world famous clue word database once again!  All of today’s jumbles appear to be new.  I had to – or chose to? – back into “atrium”.  Maybe, because the word starts with a vowel?  MTIRAU is just a great jumble!  The answer letter layout is a great eleven letter jumble too.  With the clue/question, and the “urn”, I was able to figure out the final answer from those first eight letters.  Knowing I had to use the U, A and R allowed me to back into “atrium”.

Fine cartoon of a pottery wheel.  It is really a good thing that I didn’t have to make my own bowls and plates, and such.  Sorry, Mrs. Hauser!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
