Three Recipes: Does the Best Lemonade Recipe Come From Lemons, a Bottle, or  Powder | Umami


(An excellent stinky pun!  How many of us had lemonade/kool-aid stands when we were kids?  It was kind of a suburban childhood rite of passage for me!  When I was a little kid Kool-Aid was easier, because there wasn’t powdered lemonade.  That didn’t come out until I was in high school.  If you wanted lemonade your mom would have to make it for you.  Mind you, it’s not rocket science, but just about every little kid can make Kool-Aid.  It’s practically fool-proof!  Selling brownies, or cookies, along with the lemonade/kool-aid, was also a thing.  I always try to patronize a little kid’s lemonade stand.  I guess you’d call it paying it forward, but for me it just takes me back.

All of today’s clue words are members of the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, however we’ve definitely seen “twyit” in a previous Jumble.  I don’t think we’ve seen “chide” in quite a long time.  None of the jumbles tripped me up today.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble, but the final answer came to me immediately.

Great cartoon of the the little kids competing drink stands.  The little boys look so friendly and happy.  But the girls look downright hostile.  I’ve noticed this over the years with a lot of Jeff’s drawings of women and girls.  It’s a little strange, because I don’t see kids and adults – especially females – this way.  But it is what it is!  And I’m sure he won’t be changing anytime soon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Solved – 03/29/23

Specific] Can someone add Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin walking  along this path (picture in comment) : r/PhotoshopRequest

If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart; I’ll stay there forever.”   —   A.A. Milne

(A beautiful, rhyming bit of poetry from “Winnie the Pooh”.  My mother was a voracious reader, but unfortunately she wasn’t big on reading to her children.  At least not that I can remember.  And I have a very good memory.  So, I wasn’t really exposed to “Winnie the Pooh” until the Disney features and certain neighborhood friends.  I remember thinking that the name was kind of stupid.  Who calls someone “the Pooh”???  Pooh is something that you wipe and flush, not something that you call someone!  But I grew to love “the Pooh” – Winnie that is – and I kind of equate the story with my favorite childhood song:  “Puff the Magic Dragon”.  They’re both about a child and his stuffed/imaginary friend, and how we tend to put those things aside as we grow up.  To this day, when I hear Peter Paul & Mary singing “Puff the Magic Dragon” it can bring a tear to my eye.  Both of my parents are gone now, as are other relatives and friends, but I will always keep them in heart.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
