An age is called dark, not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.”   —   James Michener

(Folks – unfortunately – get a little too comfortable in their ignorance.  They only see what they want to see, until they’re shown the light.  And, even then sometimes they refuse to acknowledge some inconvenient truths.  Besides being a great novelist, James was also a great patron of the arts.  He was also not shy about entering into a mixed marriage, as he wed his third – and last – wife Mari Yoriko Sabusawa in 1955.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 06/15/21

Paddock Grid for Horse Floor System, the Horse Arena Flooring

Visual Description:  A little horse sense.

VEOMI  =  MOVIE,  CUVOH  =  VOUCH,  CANBEO  =  BEACON,  SOCOEH  =  CHOOS  —   Giving us:  MIEVOHBOHE

Clue/Question:  The horse asked for new horseshoes because he thought it would – – –

How to Feed a Horse Confined to a Stable

Answer:  BEHOOVE HIM

(Ah, yes!  I love the smell of horse-apples in the morning!  Smells like . . . a Jumble pun!  That was most definitely a stinker.  But in a good way.  It was nice to see that the horse was able to rein in his urge to nag his owner.  He didn’t want to saddle his un-stable owner – Hey!  He’s conversing with his horse! – with undue clip-clop, that might spur him to buck on pony-ing up for new shoes.  After all, isn’t that the mane point?

It looks like Hoyt decided to trot out some familiar old clue words today.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  But both “veomi” and “cuvoh” are old Jumble chestnuts!  The answer letter layout was a terrific ten letter jumble.  That Hoyt is such a jumble studNeigh!  The thoroughbred of the word puzzle world!

Cute cartoon of the valiant young steed, and his western Wilbur, completely unbridled, inside the paddock.  I see a little mouse hole in that lower panel.  Hopefully, the equine can tolerate a barn feline, as a barn cat can run roughshod over those pesky little prancers.  What a hackneyed commentary!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
