Buddha Purnima 2021: Messages, Prayers and Quotes to Share With Your Loved  Ones

Three things cannot be long hidden:  the sun, the moon, and the truth.   —   Buddha

(Some republicans are finding this out the hard way.  But there are still too many who refuse to see the truth, and continue to screech:  Fake News!  ANTIFA did it!  and The Capitol Police let them in!  They are far from the traditional, fiscally responsible – reasonable – republicans.  They’re more the Mama dropped me on my head republicans.  I don’t think there is any way of saving those ones!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

World Cup of Darts 2021: Draw, schedule, teams, results, odds & live Sky  Sports TV coverage details

Answer:  TARGET AUDIENCE

(Spot on!  Eh, what!  A right proper pun if I ever ‘eard one!  That’s kinda how some of the Limeys might say it.  Not the Queen, or any of the “royal family”, of course, but I’m talking about the rank and file Brits.  The kind of folk who’ll belly up to the bar, down a coupla pints, while throwing some arrows.  Or, maybe play a game of Snooker.  Most of my Limey knowledge comes from reading Andy Capp, in the funny pages.

All four clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “gaaed” in earlier Jumbles.  I thought that “nesiug” was a great jumble.  It took me a coupla looks.  The answer letter layout was a fascinating fourteen letter jumble.  It did a fine job of disguising the final answer. 

Interesting cartoon of a British pub.  The bar appears to be unusually low.  With this one you’d have to groin up to the bar!  But seeing how I – generally – give more grief to Hoyt, I figure Knurek was overdue for some!  LOL!  Great Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  THE YEARS HAVE FLOWN

(Ooh!  Good answer!  Good answer!  Wait a minute this isn’t “Family Feud”, and I’m certainly not Steve Harvey.  Although, when it comes to the Jumble, I am most definitely “Your Man”!  Today’s final answer was definitely NOT a gimme, for me.  But I certainly get, and appreciate, the pun!

Every single clue word is on the ralis95 clue word database.  Even “gangly”!  And, I can’t remember when we last saw it.  I had to hedge my bets a bit, and pen in the word lightly, as I wasn’t sure if it was an actual word, or just something my Mom used to say.  She was a very intelligent woman, but she loved the made up word:  GOOZLY.  It was supposed to mean dreary and drizzly, so it was used to describe cold, overcast and rainy weather, and someone she admired kind of invented it.  But GANGLY is a legitimate word, despite the reservations of the Limeys at WordPress!  Stupid Limeys!  LOL!  Hoyt might not be able to come up with any – acceptable – new clue words, but he did provide us with six brand new jumbles.  At least by my count.  The answer letter layout was a spectacular seventeen letter jumble.  Because it was so large, and the final answer didn’t jump out at me, I didn’t try to unscramble it as is.  I immediately wrote down all the consonants, in alpha order, and then the vowels, in alpha order.  Right away I figured THE, and I thought of FLOWN, but wasn’t sure which five letter slot to place it.  I thought the four letter word might be VERY, but it didn’t seem like a good fit for the third slots, so then I saw HAVE.  With the remaining RASEY the YEARS came to me, and I was able to put it all together.

Great cartoon of a family visiting an air and space museum.  Since Boeing Corp is up that way, I decided on the one in Seattle.  But I’ve never been to one, so I can’t be sure.  As a teen, I did visit some of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC, but I don’t think we saw the National Air and Space one.  I think it’s way overdo for me to take some trips!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
