We can lick gravity, but sometimes the paperwork is overwhelming.”   —   Wernher Von Braun

(This was a beast for me to start!  Nothing ends in E!  No single letter words.  No words with double letters in them.  Only four words with T’s in them.  And, the author’s name was no gimme, either.  I had to play the numbers game.  The nine Y’s had to be the E’s, and the seven V’s turned out to be the R’s.  Got my stitches out today!  The doc says I’m doing great!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Tour sub.

EEESG  =  GEESE,  FRAGT  =  GRAFT,  SPEMUT  =  SEPTUM,  CWERSY  =  SCREWY   —   Giving us:  EEERATSEUSCR

Clue/Question:  They took a ride in the submarine to – – –

Answer:  SEA CREATURES  Hmm!  Because of the letters made available, I’m told that the actual – not necessarily the correct – answer is: SEE CREATURES.  Read the comments, friends.

(Great stinky pun!  Reminds me of the old joke.  I’m on that new seafood diet.  Yeah, I see food and I eat it!  This see cruise looks even better than a glass-bottom boat!

None of today’s clue words are new.  Although, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  They were all fun, but I got them all instantly.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful twelve letter jumble.  I found nothing obvious about it.  The biggest clues were the quotation marks and the great cartoon.

It looks like Jeff is taking us down memory lane.  Maybe a trip he took the family on, about ten years or so ago.  It’s gotta be pretty pricey.  Submarines aren’t cheap!  I thought that Cam might be doing his best Ralph Cramden, or perhaps Charlie Callas, but that is the actual Hawaiian name for the reef trigger fish.  And, once again, Jeff has drawn it superbly!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
