Belated Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 09/26/21

6 things cabin crew will never tell you once you're on the plane | The  Independent | The Independent

Visual Description:  Aaah, this is yer Captain speaking . . .


Clue/Question:  Breakfast for passengers in first class included bagels with – – –

Pre-Answer:  Three Words  (5-letters)  (5-letters)  (6-letters)

A (French) Toast to Airplane Breakfast - The Inflight Dish


(Gee!  For First Class prices, you’d think they might offer a variety of cream cheeses.  Like vegetable, chives, strawberry or blueberry, smoked salmon, or some kind of nuts!  Do they do walnut cream cheese?  I wouldn’t know, because I don’t care for cream cheese on my bagels.  I know, for some people, you HAVE TO put cream cheese on bagels!  It’s like one of the Commandments, or something, for them.  But IDGAF what those folks say.  It doesn’t appeal to me, whatsoever.  Pasty garbage!  Just give it to me with butter.  When I was avoiding fat, I’d have them with jelly.  But that only works with plain, or raisin bagels.  I think with onion, or garlic, or salt, or everything bagels, jelly would be disgusting.  I bet peanut butter would be good on plain or sesame bagels too.  But that’s not my bag.  The point being that people should eat their bagels the way they want to, and societal convention be damned.

All of the clue words are already on the ralis95 world famous clue word database.  Yet, all of the jumbles are coming up as new!  I don’t remember struggling to get any of them though.  The jumble for “splice” seemed designed to make you think of eclipse, but just for a second.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive sixteen letter jumble.  Despite the quotation marks, I immediately went with CREAM CHEESE – because I’m so conditioned – and then came up with the PLANE for PLAIN pun.

Fine onboard first class cartoon.  All the people look like they’re happy to NOT have their knees against the seat in front of them!  Oh, for the days when airline travel was enjoyable for the average Joe!  During the lock-down, all the airlines had the perfect opportunity – with all the grounded aircraft – to reconfigure all of their planes’ seating, to make them more comfortable for all.  I doubt any of them did though.  And, they wonder why there is so much hostility on so many flights!  Take out a row, or two, of seats in Economy, so people can move their legs, and relax!  Is that so hard to understand?  Stop being such greedy pigs, you colluding cretins!  Be well and do good, friends!)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad!  (Another great tune from when I was 12/13!)

    It’s been a while since I’ve read a nice digression about bagels.
    It was part my long-ago mornings in the East Village. Today nothing beats my fruit smooches but back then it was the craving to have after a night of partying. A had a friend who loved that Grand Funk Railroad album. sweet.

    Oh, that. I know I shouldn’t be saying this but if there were a way to avoid ever having to go to an airport, I’d be perfectly fine with it. Which is ironic since I used to go to see the planes take off in my hometown; it was something “elegant” to do then and we’d dress our best. You know, then even the flight stewardess had a fashion sense – and no one was rude with them. Long ago.

    Did the same when I was a wee lad. It was always a treat when my Mom, or my Grandma, would take us to the airport to watch the planes take off. They also had a decent sit-down restaurant back then, and of course we’d have dinner and watch the planes. Some of that was even before my first flight, at age 6. And, you’re right. We always dressed for it. Flying was glamorous back then! — YUR

    Coltales says people would “dress up” to see the planes take off; and Unc replies with something similar.

    What kind of hick towns did ya’ll come from that “dressing up” to watch airplanes takeoff was a big show ?

    Please impress me ! 🙂

    Please don’t bother commenting on this blog until you get back on your meds, lwc. Thank you. — YUR

    lwc, I thought you were of a certain age, but apparently you are younger than you have made yourself out to be. In the late 1950s and early 1960s commercial air flight was still relatively new, and a VERY big deal, all around the world. The vast majority of people had never even flown before, so yes, going to the airport and watching airplanes land and takeoff was a form of entertainment. This was true for just about all people, but especially for children. The only people who wouldn’t think this activity was special would be people living on a military base, where military planes taking off and landing was common place. And, when you factor dining into the equation it’s a double treat.

    And, just remember: nasty begets nasty! Three of your posts the other day had unnecessary nastiness in them. I welcome differences of opinion, but I will not tolerate nastiness on this blog.

    If someone was offended, I apologize. But it didn’t occur to me that the discussion involved the 1950s when all aviation would have been a spectacle to most people. That was when air flight first became available to the middle-class and more people would see the planes overhead. I recall those days well. Seeing an airplane for the first time was a spectacle.

    Unc, it is not my practice to ridicule people, but when a shipmate says something that sounds funny, it is our practice to chime in and add to it. When I experienced that with Sailors and Marines I was prepared because I grew with aunts and uncles who behaved the same way with each other.

    However, I am curious to know if WordPress is capable of polling. If someone felt put-off I’d like to know in order to apologize to each one.

    You have an interesting blog. I’ve read things about people in other parts of the country I haven’t experienced and places I haven’t visited.

    God Bless and Semper Fi !

    Yes, lwc. 1950s and early 1960s. Wes and I are in our 60s, so our childhood was in the early 1960s. A couple years were ’58 and ’59, but most memories – for me – are from age 3 and up.

    You have to know your audience, lwc. You’re not dealing with a bunch of Sailors and Marines here. And, that was a lifetime ago for you anyway. Usually, you’re quite civil, and that’s what most of us expect . . . and deserve. Questioning things is all well and good, as you did with the Ringo question, you kept it straightforward. So, I know you can filter out the negative and nasty. Just mind your P’s and Q’s, mister, and we’ll be positively hunky dory!
