Clue/Question:  Salisbury Cathedral’s spire was built in 1320, but it’s still – – –

Salisbury Cathedral - History and Facts | History Hit

Answer:  IN TIPTOP SHAPE

(I guess they really knew how to build them 764 years ago!  Well, that’s how long the church itself has been around.  The spire is 702 years old.  I may, or may not, have seen this cathedral.  I haven’t been to England in 32 years, so my memory is a little fuzzy.  I remember taking a few day trips out of London, just not all the details.  But the cathedral has one of the oldest working clocks in the world, and one of the remaining four original copies of the Magna Carta.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen both “wpest” and “prliep” previously.  The answer letter layout was an impressive thirteen letter jumble.  Nothing about it was obvious to me.  I didn’t know where the guys were headed with this, so I wrote out the vowels and consonants, separately, in alphabetical order.  The P’s and T’s helped me to realize TIP-TOP, and the answer fell into place.

Great cartoon of the Anglican cathedral.  The “tourists”  look to be fairly specific, but I don’t recognize them.  Maybe friends of the guys.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR: SHAPE jumped right out from the letters and the rest was easy. I’ve been to England 7 times now, visiting my ancestral diggins in Yorkshire. Went to Salisbury Cathedral in 1977, the first time and got some great pics inside and out. My favorite was a shot of the Spire, taken from the ground near the entrance, showing two workman leaning out of a small access door about 2/3 of the way up, getting ready to work on the outside of the Spire itself. Scary, scary!

    Wow! 7 times is a lot, boss! Maybe after Carol has her ablation she’ll have more energy for travel. She gets winded so quickly these days. — YUR

    LOL! Actually, I’m a little raggedy, Ken. Letting the hair grow out, and shaving every 3-4 days. But the missus still says I’m handsome! — YUR
