Neil Armstrong: The First Man to Walk on the Moon - Universe Today

Answer:  SPACE PROGRAM

(Ya see, kids.  Back in the day, getting a man on the moon was officially known as the Space Program.    The moon – not being on earth – is out in space!  And another word for a show on television is a program.  So, if any of you were wondering how this answer is a pun . . . now you know.  For those of us who’ve been around the block a few times . . . I apologize for stating the obvious.

None of the clue words are new.  One is barely a word:  GOTCHA.  It’s just a slangy contraction that’s found its way into dictionaries.  If Hoyt or Knurek are reading this they could also try using GONNA and/or KINDA.  They’re in the same dictionaries, but not on the ralis95 clue word database.  And LEMME is even in a few, though not Merriam-Webster!  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new.  But we have seen “sreps” and “toghac” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic.

Great cartoon of a multi-generational family watching a documentary on the momentous 1969 occasion!  Great recreation of Neil Armstrong taking that first step too.  “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”  I think Neil adlibbed that a bit.  But it’s the line that we all know.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Charlie Thomas, of The Drifters!  (The original is still the best, in my opinion.)

(When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  It ain’t over ’til it’s over.  Things aren’t always fair right now, but the times they are a changin’.  Janis knew this way back in 1967.  Have a listen.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
