Florida Keys Road Trip Itinerary: The Top Things to Do in the Florida Keys  from Miami to Key West

Answer:  LOWKEY

(“Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go”.  Remember back when the Beach Boys song “Kokomo” came out?  Around 1988, or so.  It caused this huge torrent of requests for travel agents to book trips to the island of “Kokomo”.  The only problem was that there was no such place!  At least not at the time of the song.  There was/is a Kokomo, Indiana, but it’s not exactly tropical.  Maybe Jeff Knurek has been there!

None of today’s clue words are new.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  They were all very quick solves for me.  The answer letter layout was a scant six letter jumble.  When they’re that short the final answer is never very tough.

Fun cartoon of a couple of tourists chilling down in the Florida Keys.  Ya gotta love the hammock.  There are some other folks posing on the beach, with . . . something large.  And, because this is a beach scene, we get the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  Are you guys jealous of these tourists?  I know I am.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

13 James Baldwin quotes that are still painfully true today

The most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose.”   —   James Baldwin

(This usually means you’ve lost your family, or they’ve completely declared you persona non grata.  You can stand to lose just about anything else . . . but them.  A fitting closing to Black History Month.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BETTER THAN NOTHING

(Hey!  Whadayawant fer nuthin’?!!!  This Jumble punswer is putting me in mind of the incomparable Billy Preston!  Before most of us knew him as a brilliant solo performer, he was a much sought after session keyboardist during the 1960s.  He reinvigorated The Beatles during their “Get Back”/”Let It Be” days, back in 1969.  And, he was one of the few referred to as the “Fifth Beatle”.  “Get Back” is even credited as “The Beatles with Billy Preston”, the only one of the Beatles songs to credit NOT just one of the Fab Four.  And, he recorded a beautiful duet, with a sweet voiced girl named Syreeta, that just might be the most romantic song of all time!

All of this day’s clue words were familiar old friends.  However, four of the jumbles did come up as new, for me.  The two that we’ve definitely seen are “gdeaan” and “turagi”.  None of the jumbles stumped me any.  The answer letter layout was a stupendous seventeen letter jumble!  I thought it was masterfully cryptic.  But the final answer came to me almost immediately.

A workmanlike cartoon of a couple of numbers on some kind of cosmic plane.  Not a whole lot you can do with numbers in cartoons, folks!  They’re just kinda Meh!  The only people who might get a little excited by them are computer programmers.  Repeating all the various sequences of zeroes and ones would drive me batty!  But to each their own.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
