Clue/Question:  When Jeanne Calment turned 122 in 1997, 121 was – – –

Jeanne Calment - Wikipedia

Answer:  HER OLD AGE

(Sacré bleu!  C’est incroyable!  122 years, 164 days is gonzo wacko.  I don’t think I’d even want to live that long.  Outliving your siblings, spouse, children, and grandchildren doesn’t sound like much of a life to me.  They always say that women generally live longer than men.  I guess that’s true, because the oldest recorded man was a mere 116 year, 54 days.  Japanese fellow, named Jiroemon Kimura.  All things being equal, I think I’d prefer a life in the South of France, eating French bread, great cheese, and drinking red wine, as opposed to anywhere in Japan, eating sushi, rice, and drinking saké.  But, that’s just my American/Eurocentric upbringing.  I am a fan of Japanese Hibachi restaurants though.  But, saké never thrilled me.  Much too bland for my tastes.  Maybe, I just don’t have a sophisticated palate.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “kirhe” before.  The only one that I hesitated on was “paulrb”.  It’s a long time since I’ve seen a burlap bag.  They must still make them.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  I thought it disguised the final answer rather nicely.

Awesome cartoon!  The likeness of old Jeanne is remarkable.  I like the other old gent wearing the beret.  A little cliché, but cute.  Not sure what got the guys thinking about her.  It’s not her birth day, or death anniversary.  Hey!  She avoided the “Spanish Flu”!  The vast majority of us will either avoid, or survive, this Covid19 pandemic too.  So, maybe we should all keep Jeanne in mind.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I wouldn’t like to last that long either but if I’d May’s wits I’d surely enjoy ‘every minute of it’ too.

    Ms Jeanne was a real cutie in her youth.
    She wasn’t so bad at 122 either !

    Good on her; and may she rest in peace !
