Clue/Question:  They were successful at marketing their lemonade because they didn’t – – –

Marc's Lemonade Stand – That CRM Blog

Answer:  STAND STILL

(Aahh!  That really hit the spot!  I think it’s an American rite of passage for just about all kids to have a lemonade and/or Kool-Aid stand.  I know me and my brother, and probably a neighbor or two, had a few when I was a kid.  Especially, June 13-16, 1968, for the  U.S. Golf Open!  My neighborhood was just outside the entrance to Oak Hill Country Club, so we got a lot of foot traffic.  My older brother even charged people to park on our lawn.  I believe he got $5 a pop, and that was good money for a 12 year old kid.  I also sold golf balls that I had fished out of the course creek.  Yeah, those were the days!  I was just reminiscing with some old childhood friends at that memorial service that I just went to.  We were saying that we basically had a Norman Rockwell childhood.  Clearly, not everyone in America had it so good in the late 1960s, but that just made us realize how fortunate we actually were!

It might sound like a broken record, but there were no new clue words this day, but two of the jumbles appear to be so.  We have definitely seen both “milti” and “solfis” in earlier Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a tasty ten letter jumble.  It hid the final answer nicely.  The five and five of the final answer slots made for a quick solve.

Great retro cartoon of kids running a lemonade stand.  I don’t think anyone has sold lemonade for 25¢ a glass in ages!  I think we probably charged 25¢ back in 1968!  This was a fun trip down memory lane.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
