Answer:  BALED OUT

(A good homonym pun!  I know we’ve become pretty much the furthest thing from an agrarian society, but did anyone really struggle to get today’s answer?  I kinda doubt it.

All of today’s clue words were familiar old friends.  So, our good buddy ralis95 does not need to do anything today, except sip Mojitos by the pool.  LOL!  A little surprisingly, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  None of them gave me any trouble though.  The eight letter answer letter layout jumble was as neat as freshly baled hay.  Nothing given away!

Great pastoral cartoon.  No doubt Jeff has driven through his share of farm country, living in Indiana.  Happy Birthday to Lou Brock, who turns 80 today.  Also to Sir Paul McCartney 77, Isabella Rossellini 67, Ray LaMontagne 46, Alana De La Garza and Blake Shelton both 43!  A bunch of other people too, but mostly names I don’t recognize.  Enjoy the relevant tune!  Can anyone figure out why?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    For some reason, ODDEST started to give me trouble but I popped in the double “DD” and Bingo^^! The solution was almost a “gimme”.

    Maybe it’s just me, but the Word “Odd” is very common but “Oddest” is not seen by me very
    often; strangest, weird, different ect…yes but…
    Oh Well>?

    “Death Valley Days” is now on EWSTN, “Gates Ajar Morgan” Series/Special, circa:1959 ((It was a really Goooood Year, just came on, that
    allows me too be “BALED” OUT!)) ODDEST timing,

    Be Blessed^^^

    Always loved “Death Valley Days” as a kid, Ken. Who replaced Ronnie Ray-guns as the host??? I can’t remember his name. — YUR

    20-mule team Boraxo. We had a can in the utility room to scrub our arms and hands after working around outside. 😀

    Here is your info ×+: Stanley Andrews (The Old
    Ranger)1952-64, Ronald Re-guns (LOL)1964-65, Rosemary DeCamp, 1965-66?? {What a Great trivia question!!}, Robert Taylor, 1966-69
    & finally, Dale Robertson, 1969-70 (Really all around terrific group*)

    I did some background checks on a few of the shows historic details (old habit from my long-ago Bus. Days)…There was very little “Artistic
    Leeway” in them…

    Hope you enjoyed…Have a good rest of the week

    Adios Amigo

    Wow! More people than I expected, but I guess I was thinking of the last guy, Dale Robertson! But, I do remember Robert Taylor and Rosemary DeCamp too. I guess Stanley Andrews was a little before my time, but he sure did it a long time! Thanks, Ken. — YUR

    I think the show was sponsored more by the laundry detergent, Damid. But, our house always had Boraxo too. Great stuff. I think you can still find it on line, but I don’t see it stores anymore. — YUR

    I haven’t noticed Boraxo in any stores either.

    One more opinion; There are many mixed feelings about how we “Won the West”?, but the large majority of settlers were decent, strong willed people {extra kodous to the female/ mothers on that arduous trek!*}
    Example: I know you have heard this before, here goes anyway; Many deals, promises & actions were agreed too on the classic “Handshake”…Even to the outlaws this was important (of course this does not include the
    severely mentally handicapped)

    This is just a bad joke; There was a fellow in Greece many ages ago who said something like this: “To fix many of the countries problems>>>First, kill all the Lawyers”
    The more things change the more…….!!

    That’s enough(Too much??)
