Answer:  WIND UP WITH IT

(Great Jumble pun!  And, not stinky in the least.  Maybe a little slimy, but that’s what you get with fish.  You’ve also got to be careful how you handle certain fish, as some have spiky fins, and you can get jabbed.  Handling fish is just something you have to get used to if you want to go fishing.

No new clue words, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We have definitely seen “tyupt” and “nirhed” in days gone by.  The answer letter layout was a splendid twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was commendably cryptic.  I got UP and WITH first, then I wound up with the entire punswer.

Fine cartoon of a father and daughter sitting in a rowboat, enjoying a day of fishing, out on a lake or large pond.  A fun day of familial bonding.  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Joe Bonamassa and unknown girl:

    The intensity of these two is horrendous, especially the girl on the cello !

    Where did he get her ? Notice how her bow was gradually disintegrating. I wasn’t sure it would hold together to the end of the piece.

    Also, I couldn’t tell if she was Chinese or Japanese and her name isn’t listed anywhere I looked. Does anyone else know ?

    Apparently, her cello must have been “toast”. Notice on the next number she switched to a two-string instrument I didn’t recognize: Is it a zither, gottan, or sanshin ?

    “Horrendous”? Very strange choice of words, lwc! Her name is Mary Jones, pal. 😉 Let me know what else you don’t like, and I’ll be sure to post it for you! How ’bout some nice Yoko Ono? 🤣 — YUR

    She could be either, or both, or one of any number of combinations, lwc. I couldn’t tell if you were male or female in the beginning, but I just let that go. — YUR 🤨

    No, I did like the piece they played.

    By “horrendous” I was referring to their intensity all the way to the end. It was like watching a wild opera on a Bugs Bunny cartoon. I was waiting for one of them to either collapse to the floor or for her bow to burst into flames.

    That would have been the best finish. 🙂

    Maybe you actually meant *tremendous*, because this is what horrendous means: hor·ren·dous
    /həˈrendəs,hôˈrendəs/
    adjective
    adjective: horrendous: extremely unpleasant, horrifying, or terrible.
    “she suffered horrendous injuries”
    Similar: horrible, dreadful, horrifying, horrific, frightful, fearful, awful

    The lady’s name is actually Tina Guo. She is Chinese-American, born in Shanghai. The other instrument she was playing was likely the erhu. It’s a traditional Chinese violin. — YUR

    I think you might be right; horrendous may not have been technically correct. However, that is the way I felt watching them play. While watching Ms Guo struggle with her bow, I was waiting for their whole act to blow up. It was “TREMEMENDOUS” they made it through !

    Tina’s playing is designed to erase the stale and musty preconception that the cello is meant only for sedate chamber music. She doesn’t struggle with her bow. It’s her bow that struggles to make it to the end of the piece.

    It’s kind of like how Jethro Tull, and Focus, introduced the flute to Rock music. After hearing them you knew that the flute wasn’t just for “Peter and the Wolf” anymore.

    Listen to Tina’s “Wonder Woman” Theme:

    I know the name Joe Bonamassa and know he’s a guitar god, but have never really listened to him. That video is amazing! I’m not sure how his right hand does not fall off. That cello is killer!

    I’ve only had very limited exposure to him myself, Jeff. Mostly via concert announcements on my radio station. The Blues doesn’t get a whole lot of airplay around here. But there’s no denying his virtuosity. Check out this link of his 5 Most Streamed songs. Pretty awesome.:

    Yes Unc, I see what you mean.
    She can get fierce. You wouldn’t want to get too close while she’s into it. There’s no telling what might get on you. 🙂

    Unc,

    You turned me on to something new !

    I’m just discovering that Tina Guo and Caroline Campbell are rockstars in the string world.

    Unc,

    According to Wikipedia Ms Guo is 35, but in this video and others she looks like a baby – a very talented and passionate baby.

    SHE could get on me, and I’m sure I would be very happy, lwc. — YUR

    They certainly are, lwc. — YUR

    Lots of Asian women seem to hold onto their youthful complexion much longer than other races. When my wife was in her mid to late 30s she still looked like she was in her 20s. She always looked younger than her actual age, until fairly recently. Actually, I guess she still looks younger than her actual age. — YUR
