Jumble Solved – 05/21/22

Willie Nelson - Half A Man | Play on Anghami

Visual Description:  A really retro Nelson!


Clue/Question:  Mr. Nelson composed songs like “On The Road Again” in a way that wasn’t – – –

Neil Reshen, 75, Dies; Manager Won 'Outlaw' Singers' Freedom - The New York  Times


(Gotta love it!  I’m guessing this is around mid 1979.  Willie was already an established Country & Western star, but this song made him a BIG crossover star!  I know that I’d never heard of him before this song.  Not my genre.  But I guess I would have seen him in the movie “The Electric Horseman”.  Before he made it really big as a performer/singer he was an accomplished writer.  Penning such standards as “Pretty Paper”, “Hello Walls”, “Funny How Time Slips Away”, and “Crazy”.  Willie has definitely had his ups and downs throughout his long life, but overall he’s a survivor . . . and a thriver.  He’s an American icon!  And, yer Uncle really admires him.

Will wonders ever cease?  The word “waggle” does NOT appear on the ralis95 clue word database!  Sure, wiggle does, but not “waggle”.  This is our first new clue word in quite some time!  I wonder if David L. Hoyt has been sitting on this one, and if we might be seeing a few more in the near future?  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “gnorel” before.  The answer letter layout was an earnest eleven letter jumble.  But it couldn’t disguise the final answer, with all those L’s and I’s.

Great cartoon of the younger Willie with a friend.  At first I thought the guy standing behind him might be John Lennon, but that didn’t make much sense.  Then I thought maybe Merle Haggard, because of the beard, but I don’t recall him sporting long hair.  Then, after seeing an Outlaws poster, I decided that this was most likely Waylon Jennings.  I could very easily be wrong, but that’s who I’m going with.  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
