Jumble Spoiler – 09/23/21

Advice on Choosing a Bit for Your Horse

Visual Description:  The process of breaking them in.

Clue/Question:  Seeing the bridle with its mouthpiece made the young horse – – –

100 Golden Palominos Rose Parade - YouTube

Answer:  A BIT NERVOUS

(Just a bit?  If I were the horse, I’d probably wonder if I’d be able to eat with that in my mouth!  My experience with horses is fairly limited.  But I have a cousin who used to compete in rodeo events, in her younger days.  And, she’s had horses her entire life.  My uncle – her dad – was a pretty well known cowboy, in some circles.  I remember seeing him ride in a couple of the Rose Parades, with a team of Palominos!  Very cool!

We have seen all of today’s clue words before.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “crouc” and “gatims” in earlier Jumbles.  They all came to me quickly, but I guess “labevi” took the longest to get.  The answer letter layout was another David L. Hoyt special eleven letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic, but the final answer was a quick solve for me.

Another great cartoon from our good friend Jeff.  A fine horsie, and a great drawing of a bridle.  We Jumble devotees are lucky to have Mssrs. Hoyt and Knurek providing us with quality puzzles.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthday to Bruce Springsteen!

“The Boss” Backs Ba-rock!

Bruce Springsteen is throwing his support to Barack Obama.  Not exactly a HUGE surprise, but I suppose he could’ve endorsed Hillary.  This should play better with the Boomers than with the *kids*, but Bruce does have a fairly wide fan-base.  He has always been a champion of/for the common man.  His roots are blue-collar, and he’s never lost sight that, though he has a much broader appeal.

His support of John Kerry, in 2004, was not enough to do the trick.  But then again, Bush was playing that whole: Don’t change horses in mid-stream crapola, due to us only being a year or so into the Iraq occupation. (now we’re +5!)  That and a heavy dose of – that old Republican favorite – The Fear Card!  AND, a lot of right thinking (not politically, mind you) people felt that Ol’ George stole THAT election as well! (Ohio voting machines and assorted polling place irregularities)

And, let’s not forget the other thing . . . it was John Kerry.  Yet another silver-spooned, Yale educated, Skull and Bones elitist.  His wife was way too opinionated for most, and richer than GOD.  He bore a striking resemblance to Fred Munster, and had all the personality of a wet dish rag.  At least this time we’ve got an athletic, charismatic guy who’s comfortable in his own skin, and knows how to grab and hold an audience.

But, check out Bruce’s letter on his official website and read for yourself.  It’s short and to the point.  Just like a directive from your Uncle Rave!  Enjoy!
