Jumble Spoiler – 10/09/20

Are we breeding a 'lost generation' who won't have photo albums to capture their lives?

Visual Description:  Traditional vs. modern albums.


Clue/Question:  She thought she came from a large family, but it’s – – –

Simple ways to back up your iPhone photos


(Using one of my favorite expressions as a stinky pun, huh?  That’s okay.  We’re all friends.  Actually, David L. and I are distant cousins.  Probably very distant, but I’m sure we have a familial link.  I should do one of those Ancestry.com things, to see which branch each of us is hanging from.

Would you believe that we have a brand new clue word today, in “muddle”?  It’s not on the current ralis95 clue word database, but I’m guessing it will be added after today’s puzzle.  We’ve seen the jumble “lordl” before, but the other three are coming up as new.  I had to back into “trauma”.  I thought it was a very sneaky jumble.  Fortunate for me, there was enough answer letters for me to get the final answer without it.  All the L’s, E’s, and the R and V made it pretty easy for me to see it.  But, a fine answer letter layout.

Nice, little friendly gathering cartoon between two couples.  That’s what we like to see.  Happy 72nd birthday to Jackson Browne!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    This struck me as a rerun final answer, and it turned out to be one, with a slightly different though still family-themed setup.

    But unless Angela has a more recent appearance to cite, I won’t complain about this rerun, because over six years have passed since they used it: https://unclerave.wordpress.com/2014/08/30/jumble-spoiler-083014/

    Yep! There are only so many Jumble answers out there. At least this setup is totally different, David. Thanks for the memory though! — YUR

    Didn’t have to “MUDDLE” through this one even
    though it was a rather “DROLL” experience…No
    “Bus”(cop speak) had to pick me up for “TRAUMA” care…I was going to play a “VIDEO”
    but hearing that Great** Jackson Browne clip
    put me in the mood for more of that genre☆
    Good job UR…….”If you don’t have the behind the scenes activity, you don’t have the “Real Scene”…….k…{“Roady” listen to clip}

    So looong!! ₩

    Good Evening, Gentlemen. I hope this finds both of you well. We have seen MUDDLE before, on Sunday 11/11/18. And yes, I found the puzzle of 08/30/14 to be the last use of ALL RELATIVE also. Wishing you both a good night…Be well and stay safe out there. ..And RIP Whitey Ford. God speed. You always did us proud. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    Thanks, Angie! It felt kind of familiar, but my memory is not what it used to be. Sundays have always been a problem. Whitey Ford was a name I heard my entire life! I don’t think I ever saw him pitch though.

    Glad you enjoyed it, Ken! — YUR

    You’re welcome. And trust me, you’re not alone. With so much going on these days, everyone’s mind is muddled…As for Whitey, I’m a Mets fan, but one gives respect where respect is due. A true Gentleman of the game. Hope you’re enjoying your night, UR. Be well, stay safe…and wear your mask. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    Mets fan??? I knew there was something I liked about you. A good night to you too. — YUR 😉

    PS. Good use of muddle!

    Born and bred…We weren’t even allowed to eat Yankee Doodles growing up! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

    Amendment; I misspelled Roadie with Roady…
    Fun thing; Why I did (?): Way back, I was in a band called Dags & the Roadys…I played drums (slightly) How we got the name; We only had two Roadies who worked for drinks (real). They had good jobs at a Steel Mill & just liked to hang-out…We all pitched in, so we were all technically “Roadys”{the piano was, forgit ’bout it!!}. Thus, for lack of insight, we came-up with
    Dags & the Roadys (Dags was the founder(?) of the group)….>>>I did some research and we never quite made the Billboard Top 100 or 200
    {500¿?} Jackson Browne would>>…Nah*

    Angela, Thx for the Whitey Ford mention…I was fortunate enough to meet him at the old, but not forgotten, Toots Shor’s in 1976. A Class- Act is an understatement…Shame he had to be a Yankee!!*Farewell Chairman ☆ £

    Notes: Very sad how Toots went out in 1977.
    Whitey’s good buddy, The Mick, when he permanently injured his ACL, right knee, during the 52′ World Series…On a fly to right-center, (lousy drain pipe),it not only hurt his potential physically but, sadly,
    mentally×…some pro baseball folks told me he was on his way to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, player of all time…Life is……….
    Imagine playing your whole stint in MLB as an outfielder with a torn ACL and end up, rightfully so, in the Hall of Fame…..Better man than…….?

    Play ball…Lattttter…….in◇s…k

    For our two die-hard NY Yankees haters, I’ll refrain from characterizing this final answer as Yogi would say (Berra, that is): “deja vu all over again.”

  12. 12 unclerave October 10, 2020 at 5:19 pm

    Quite alright, David, as we both shared Yogi! — YUR

  13. 13 Angela October 10, 2020 at 5:29 pm

    Hi David. I’m not sure, but if you meant me besides UR, I don’t hate the Yankees. Takes too much effort,,,’Twas my Father had the disdain for them, being a staunch Brooklyn Dodger fan…Hence…Devil Dogs or nothing! 😉 Have a good night. ⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️
