HENRY FORD AND THOMAS EDISON – Detroit News Photography

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again.  This time more intelligently.”   —   Henry Ford

(Sounds like a version of a Thomas Edison quote!  It’s hard to tell who might’ve influenced the other.  Well, we know they were best buds!  And, both of them did so much to change the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 09/10/22

How do they make the grass stripes on major league baseball fields? -  FindersFree.com

Visual Description:  He was outstanding in his . . . stadium!

Fine cartoon of reporters asking the groundskeeper how he does his job.  Must be a pretty slow day if they’re reporting on how grass grows.  It looks like Jeff could’ve given us some kind of bonus, up in the stands, but it can’t be made out with my copy.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
