Answer:  SIGHT FOR SOAR EYES

(A great, momentous stinky pun!  Maybe, this will be the first in a series of Jumbles to commemorate the 50th anniversary of man landing on the moon?  Sort of a precursor to:  “The eagle has landed.”  It’s a big “maybe”, but knowing how the guys like acknowledging historic events, I wouldn’t put it past them.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  That’s why ralis95‘s name is NOT in the title line today!  He can enjoy a nice relaxing Sunday, without having to update his world famous database.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  A couple of them gave me pause.  It was a brief pause for “hungeo”, but “baliuf” gave me fits.  And, I nearly had to back into it, but I finally saw it after playing around with FABULI.  A little ironic, considering I once broke my left “fibula”.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive sixteen letter jumble.  If the entire setup didn’t clue you into the final answer, this massive jumble would have been tough to crack.

Fine cartoon of eagles in their aerie, looking up at their son’s first flight.  The dad looks as proud as a peacock!  And, mom’s “Oh, my” look is priceless.  I like how Jeff made her feminine, with the eyelash treatment, and tufts of feathers to look like more hair.  A fine Sunday Jumble.  And, maybe the start of something bigger???  We’ll see.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Hopefully, some of these issue will come up in the Democratic candidates debate! I hear the opening of the debate will feature all the candidates spilling out of a clown car! — YUR

Time to Fight & Be Proud, Colltalers

It’s deja vu all over again. The Trump administration’s threatened to bomb another country, but Iran may be tougher a foe than North Korea. Whether the crisis is averted, is not the president’s concern; having a war at the ready to help on his reelection is.
But the world is, indeed, concerned about it. Such a conflict would surely spill over the Middle East and boost the more than 70 million kicked out of their homes by wars, according to a United Nations study released on World Refugee Day. Worried yet?
The climate emergency is very much part of both equations. For instance, a report by NOAA, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric agency, found that global carbon dioxide emissions reached the highest levels in 61 years, last May, 3.5 ppm higher than the 411.2 ppm 2018 peak. In the same period, floods…

The Last Leaves

Let’s hear it – NOT clear it – for the trees! We need them more than they need us. Planting new ones is all well and good, but we need old growth trees more than some silly little saplings. If more states – or the whole country – legalizes hemp and marijuana we would not have to chop down another tree for paper! — YUR
PS. No, I do not – and likely would not – partake in the ingesting of marijuana. — YUR

The Day When Forests
Won’t Have Any Trees

Climate emergency, – a man-made executioner we fear so much that we’ve sent our own children to do battle with – has always had a fierce opponent, even before it needed one: trees. Living beings that ushered us to the present, they’ve got all it takes to save our future.
As long as they’re standing, that is. But stood have many, for millennia. As we see forests, we miss what makes them one. Trees may be downed, but nothing kills their gift for being reborn. The history of the world is told by thousand rings inside their girth.
They tower and endure. They come as big as cathedrals, and as old as a religion. Life travels from roots to high up branches, as they hang on to Earth as its own giant limbs. Trees have been blowing oxygen down our lungs for…

Clue/Question:  Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series was a gem, – – –

Image result for Don Larsen

Answer:  THREW AND THREW

(Excellent stinky pun!  Great homonym pun.  This sublime moment in Baseball history took place over 62 years ago, so it’s even older than yer uncle!  It remains the only perfect game, and only no-hitter, to be pitched in a World Series game.  And, old Don is still with us at age 89.  And, he did pitch into the first ten years of my life.  But sadly, I can’t say – for certain – that I ever saw him pitch.  I really didn’t follow baseball until about age 10.

Surprisingly, we have a new clue word today, in “entry”.  The other three were faithful old friends.  All four of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive thirteen letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.

Great recreation of that iconic moment.  I would not be surprised if those were the exact words exchanged between Don and Yogi.  A great cartoon and a great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Whether it’s a brush, an ax, a knife or even a padlock, the artist always finds a way to personify these small everyday objects by making a portrait of these…

Israel & the Plastic Quagmire, Colltalers

In the 1960s, it seemed like a good idea: plastic bags to carry stuff. And to pack, ship, roll into a straw, and wrap food and drinks. It was hygienic, versatile, and eternal. A brave new world miracle. Now it’s what it’s stuffing to death the stomachs of whales.
The global right wing wave hijacking democracies, and promoting a populism of oppression, has a major date tomorrow, with the Israeli elections. A win by prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu may dash for good the Palestinians’ dream of a homeland.
Reversing the impact of our toxic lifestyle on the environment, and preventing the expansion of authoritarian regimes, are in fact related issues. For it’s unlikely that a government used to annex territories by force, would also protect its people from pollution and climate change. Netanyahu, who’s played masterfully the ‘fear-your-neighbor’ trump card, has no time for…
