Dia de muertos has begun!  It’s the one night of the year our ancestors can come visit us.”   —   Abuelita, “Coco”

(I remember turning up my nose to the movie “Coco”, because I don’t particularly like any of the animated movies they make these days.  But once I started watching it I couldn’t turn it off.  Yes, I streamed it.  It’s actually a very touching story, and very entertaining.  I’ve never been “visited” by an ancestor though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Classy! VINTAGE 20's WAYNESBURG PENNANT | eBay

Answer:  WERE GROOVY

(Awesome!  Radical!  Gnarly!  Excellent!  Lit!  All are/were hip adjectives of something . . . enjoyable.  I was born in the later ’50s, so I don’t know how prevalent the word was then.  My first exposure to the word “groovy” came from the songs:  “A Groovy Kind of Love”, by The Mindbenders, and “Feelin’ Groovy” – also known as “The 59th Street Bridge Song” – by Simon & Garfunkel, in the mid 1960’s.  “The 59th Street Bridge Song” also had a more popular cover of it by the band Harpers Bizarre.  In the later ’60s, and throughout most of the ’70s, “groovy” was most associated with the hippie culture.  I remember using it all the time back then.

All of today’s clue words were already in the ralis95 groove.  However, all four jumbles appear to be groovin’ new jumbles!  I can’t say that any of them were challenging though.  I saw them all immediately.  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  Not super cryptic, but okay.  Switching the order of both the four letter words and five letter words would have given us the more evasive:  EOGVREYOWR.  I think sometimes Hoyt kind of mails it in.  LOL!

Cute cartoon of the young teen girls listening to Elvis Presley . . . or Ricky Nelson . . . or Neil Sedaka . . . or Paul Anka etc., in their bedroom.  The middle-aged dad comes in with the typical objection to that “new-fangled noise”!  Getting out my microscope, I can see that Jeff gave a little send up to the Jumble with the pennant on the wall saying:  Jumble ’54.  I’m sure that all of the kids were doing the Jumble back then.  It was the groovy thing to do!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
