Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (5-letters)  (5-letters)  (5-letters)  

Norman Rockwell's "The Problem We All Live With"


(For everybody under the age of 50, this is because Norman Rockwell works adorned the covers of the weekly magazine, “The Saturday Evening Post”, back in the heyday of weekly magazines.  It’s been around since 1897, and ran as a weekly until 1963.  From ’63 until ’69 it ran every two weeks.  They folded for a couple of years, and came back as a six editions a year thing.  I did not even realize that.  I thought they were dead.  One thing’s for sure, Norman Rockwell is dead!

All of today’s clue words are Jumble classics.  Nothing new.  Five of the jumbles are coming up as new for me, but we have seen “dglues” before.  The answer letter layout was a fabulous fifteen letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic.  I think the cartoon, its dialog, and the clue/question combined to give me COVER.  Then the rest was very evident.

Jeff did a great job of recreating some of the more iconic Rockwell covers!  It might be considered a bit kitschy to snootier types, but I think most people enjoy Norman Rockwell works.  They just take you back to a simpler, more certain time in American life.  The kind that so many of us long for.  Happy Easter, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I actually have a letter (somewhere..🤔) from Norman Rockwell that he sent to a neighbor of my grandmother. She had sent him an idea for a picture. It was a thank you letter.

    Great puzzle, no trip up except yet another error in our paper. There was no layout for the puzzle answer! And, it is all but impossible to call them and let them know! Sigh!

    All you seem to get these days, no matter who you call, is an automated phone “service”, LindaLee! It’s really no “service” at all. Biden should ban all automated phone “services”, while banning all robo-calls! Those two atrocities are probably responsible for more rage in this country than any other thing . . . including religion and politics. Love ya, lady! — YUR

    You should ask Linda Lee if she can post a copy of the letter from Norman Rockwell on your sight.

    That’s something worth seeing !

    Good idea, lwc! Hey, LindaLee! If you’re reading this let me know if you are agreeable to this! — YUR
