The real test of golf and in life is not keeping out of the rough, but getting out after we are in.”   —   Source Obscure

(Just another  way of saying:  “What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.”   —   Mary Pickford.  And, I’m sure Mary was paraphrasing a similar quote.  Great truth in the sentiment though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If you think it’s hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.”   —   Jack Lemmon

(Our first Jack Lemmon quote!  Very funny actor.  It’s hard to believe he’s been gone for over 16 years!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  A liar on the links?  (Perish the thought!)

YELKO  =  YOKEL,  FIRDT  =  DRIFT,  NAUGIA  =  IGUANA,  TEWRET  =  WETTER   —   Giving us:  YFIAAWR

Cheating on the driving range

Answer:  FAIR WAY

(Golf is a game in which the ball lies poorly and the players well.   —   Art Rosenbaum  Of course you can cheat on the tee, in the traps, or on the green, but there you are much more exposed.  Balls intended for that large expanse known as the fairway can seemingly appear out of thin air, from time to time.  Proving that miracles do happen . . . from time to time.  Yes, all’s fair in love and war . . . and, in getting back on to the fairway.

No new clue words today.  Some decent jumbling though.  I guess I liked “iguana” the best, but it’s always fun to see “yokel” too.  Sufficiently cryptic answer letter layout.  Loved the cartoon.  It looks like Jeff had someone specific in mind when he drew this!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  A couple of duffers with their Callaways.

NAEAR  =  ARENA,  VAOEB  =  ABOVE,  ZAABEL  =  ABLAZE,  AFRDIT  =  ADRIFT   —   Giving us:  EBEZER

Clue/Question:  Determining the wind speed on a calm day is this.

Answer:  A BREEZE

(Much like this Jumble was a breeze.  As soon as I got “above” I said to myself: I bet all the clue words are going to start with A today, and I was right.  To what end, I don’t know!  They were very run of the mill words, and none of the As were used in the answer.  Maybe, it was just for the novelty of it.  It didn’t make it any harder, that is for sure.  Unless there’s some deep symbolism here, like a dopey M. Night Shyamalan film, which I don’t particularly care for either, I don’t think today’s is very good.  C’ést la vie!  Better luck tomorrow.  Take care, friends.)   —   YUR
