Ernest Hemingway

When Spring came, even the false Spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest.”   —   Ernest Hemingway

(Wow!  Hemingway, the romantic!  Well, I’m a fan of Spring as well.  Spring and Fall.  Not all that crazy about Summer or Winter.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after.”   —   Ernest Hemingway

(I’m so glad that I’m a sociopath!  Just kidding, folks.  Ernest had a way of keeping things pretty simple.  This one took a little work getting started, but once I got going it went quickly.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

But man is not made for defeat.  A man can be destroyed but not defeated.”   —   Ernest Hemingway

(Not bad, for a Monday.  It’s been a while since we’ve had a Hemingway quote.  Sounds like something from “The Old Man and the Sea”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.”   —   Ernest Hemingway

(A little trial and – hopefully NOT – error!  We need to be able to take that leap of faith sometimes.  No one can afford to be gullible, and be taken in by con men, but there are times when you just have to trust that the other person is going to do the right thing.  It’s all part of the golden rule.  Be well and do good, friends.)    —   YUR

People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as Spring itself.”   —   Ernest Hemingway

(I guess Ernest really liked the season of rebirth!  I think you can find something positive about every season, if you keep an open mind, just as easily as you can find something negative.  A lot of people are saying they don’t want to hear any complaints of it being too hot this Summer, because we’ve just come through a long, and fairly harsh, Winter.  Well, they better stay away from me.  If it’s in the 80s and dry I’m a happy camper.  But, when it’s humid, and creeping into the 90s, you will definitely hear from me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  “Papa” looking to renovate his Soflo abode.


Clue/Question:  Having this made it possible for Hemingway to upgrade his house.


(How can you NOT like today’s Jumble?  Some good clue words, nicely scrambled.  Fairly decent – coulda been better – scrambling of the answer letters.  An answer that has both a lightly used adjective, and makes for a good pun.  And the whole Hemingway theme is timed nicely to coincide with the 112th anniversary of his birth.  Festivities are still going on in Key West.  The lookalike contest was just in the news this morning.  I was looking for my buddy, Frank, but it’s kind of hard to spot someone in a sea of very similar looking people.  Today’s was another good example of the guys trying to shake things up a bit.  Yer uncle approves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk, that will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”   —   Ernest Hemingway

(Yeah, but how many drunks do you know who can keep their mouths shut?  Alcohol has ways of loosening inhibitions and the tongue.  Probably best just not to drink!  Heresy, Lee?!?!  Well, maybe just not until drunk.  Although, that’s not always easy to do.  Now is it, folks?  Even those of us who drink in moderation can sometimes, unwittingly, reach/breach that tipping point.  Oh, the stories I could tell!  Yesterday was Ernest Hemingway’s birthday!  I knew it, but forgot/neglected to note it in yesterday’s postings.  My buddy, Frank Wagner is down in Key West, FL this week.  I told him he should enter a “Papa” lookalike contest.  He bears a pretty decent resemblance to the Old Man!  Today would have been Alexander Calder‘s 113th birthday!  Lots of great living birthdays today, as usual.  But, I’m going to limit my greetings to two.  Alex Trebek turns 71 today.  I’ve always been a huge Jeopardy fan!  And, actor-comedian-director Albert Brooks is 64 today.  Very funny man.  Happy birthday!  Peace.)   —   YUR

What is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after.”   — Ernest Hemingway

(But, immediately following sex you always feel good, regardless of the morality of it.  It’s a little down the road where you might feel bad about it.) —   YUR

A man’s got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book.”   —   Ernest Hemingway
