The Sanders Institute:' Jane Sanders launches new think tank

Visual Description:  Bernie Sanders, his wife and his grandson?


Clue/Question:  She’d been making mittens for more than 60 years and was – – –

(In more ways than one, I’m sure!  With my hands, my skin has gotten so thin.  You can easily see my veins.  And, when they’re straight/relaxed the skin has a crepe paper aspect to it.  The  hands always give your age away.  One of the many joys of aging!  The Jumble Answer was a fun pun.  I had to coach my daughter a little bit for her to see it.  She wasn’t familiar with the expression.  But, she liked it!

We have a new clue word today in “ninja”!  The big boss-man, ralis95, will have to add it to his world famous clue word database.  I believe all of the jumbles are new today.  I added them as Tags, but I can’t currently see them.  Hopefully, they show when I post this.  Ninja definitely took a few looks!  The other clue words came to me immediately.  The answer letter layout is a tris·kai·dek·a-jumble!  Beautifully cryptic.  Nothing given away.  But I think most of you guys figured this out.

With the sweater and the mittens, this definitely looks like our Bernie Sanders!  Nice job, Jeff!  It doesn’t look a whole lot like Jane, but maybe she looks more grandmotherly when she’s at home.  Cute kid.  You really need woolen mittens – and sweaters – for those Vermont winters!   Thankfully, we’re finally seeing spring-like weather around here.  Heard some peepers the other night!  Happy Passover to all of our Jewish readers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy Birthday to Heb Alpert!

    The only song he (accidentally) ever sang went straight to #1.
    I loved Tijuana Brass so much and thought for the longest time he was some Latino crossover star making it during the 60s. Until finding out he was living on the East Coast then, had a charity, painted, and was such a witty guy. Here’s to you Herb.

    It took me a couple of looks, hal. My daughter too. I think a lot of foreign words take most of us just a little longer. — YUR

    If you ever want to impress your lady, Wes. Just sing her this song. It’s very romantic, and surprisingly easy to sing. — YUR

    Welcome back
    Your dreams were your ticket out
    Welcome back
    To that same old place that you laughed about

    Well, the names have all changed
    Since you hung around
    But the dreams have remained
    And they’ve turned around

    Who’d have thought they’d lead you
    ” ” ” ” ” ”
    Back here where we need you?
    ” ” ” ” ” ”

    Yeah, we tease him a lot
    ‘Cause we got him on the spot
    Welcome back

    Welcome back, Welcome back, Welcome back

    A little love from the “Kotter” crowd & John Sab……

    Till we meet again…….k
