Planning a Trip to the Grand Canyon: Everything You Need to Know

Visual Description:  Too close for comfort.

BEIAD  =  ABIDE,  SFCOU  =  FOCUS,  LEEAGB  =  BEAGLE,  GDEAAN  =  AGENDA   —   Giving us:  DOEEGN

Clue/Question:  When the kids got too close to the rim of the Grand Canyon, their parents were – – –

The Grand Canyon Skywalk The #Grand #Canyon #Skywalk is a ...

Answer:  SCARED $H!TL3$$  Well, maybe just – – – ON EDGE

(My wife can’t look at some of the hiking photos that my daughter takes!  And, my daughter is almost 29!  With little kids it’s simply a matter of curiosity.  The big ones do it mostly for shock value.  I don’t trust my balance anymore.  For me to get to the rim, I’d have to crawl on my belly, like at a boot camp obstacle course.

No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  No head scratchers for me today.  Today’s answer letter layout was a concise six letter jumble.  It did the trick though.

The Grand Canyon is a very popular Jumble theme.  Jeff does a fine job of drawing it for the cartoons.  Do they let you walk right up to the rim like that, or is this just artistic license?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

HLIFT  =  FILTH,  OLAKA  =  KOALA,  GREEED  =  DEGREE,  ZRUEZB  =  BUZZER   —   Giving us:  ILADGBE

Clue/Question:  Getting Penny Marshall and Tom Hanks to star in the 1988 film was a – – –

Fortune Telling All-Seeing Trump Zoltar Stalks NYC Street Corners ...

Answer:  BIG DEAL

(“Big” was such a sweet movie.  The grown up Josh Baskin was played perfectly by Tom Hanks.  And, the movie was directed perfectly by Penny Marshall.  I miss Myrna Turna – probably Turner, but you know those Noo Yowka accents!  Wikipedia kinda downplays this as her first role that brought her recognition, and jumps immediately to “Laverne and Shirley”.

We appear to have a new clue word today, in “filth”.  We’ve definitely had filthy before, but “filth” is not on the January version of the ralis95 clue word database.  Strangely enough, we’ve had the jumble “hlifty”.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “olaka” having been used before.  Fine seven letter answer letter layout jumble.

I like today’s Tom Hanks better than last week’s!  Good Penny Marshall.  I was a little surprised that Jeff felt he had to alter the name of the fortune telling machine.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

Movie Jumble.....Spicy Witch World

Visual Description:  Jumble:  The Movie!

HWLAS  =  SHAWL,  RVEOP  =  PROVE,  TTOKYN  =  KNOTTY,  BEENTA  =  BEATEN   —   Giving us:  APRKTTEA

Clue/Question:  The audition was for the lead role, and there were plenty of actors there to – – –

Joe Scarborough Gloats Over Donald Trump Win: Media Had a 'Blind Spot'

Answer:  TAKE PART

(Lead role, huh?  Was this cleared with Mr. David L. Hoyt?  I think Jeff Knurek must be getting a really big head!  Branching out into music, like he’s Kevin Bacon, or Gary Sinise, or shudder . . . Joe Scarborough!  And, now he thinks HE’S the lead role in Jumble:  The Movie???  Wow.  No words.  SMH.  JKLOL.  RSVP.  SASE.  LSMFT.  Only unrelated acronyms.

Would you believe that the real star of the show, David L. Hoyt, my cousin – seven times removed, has given us a brand new clue word today, in “shawl”?  Well, it’s not on my latest version of the ralis95 clue word database, so it must be new!  Right, Angela?  LOL!  All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  I had a little trouble with “hwlas”.  I’m noting that “knotty” spells out in alphabetical order.  And, I was almost “beaten” by “beenta”.  Way to hide in plain sight!  Atleast I didn’t have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  Ya know, if the guys were really clever, they could’ve made it a pun on PARTAKE.  You know, with a hyphen and quotation marks.  “PART-TAKE”  Or, maybe they’ve done that one before?

Great audition cartoon!  At first glance, I though Tom Cruise was Mick Jagger!  But, I can definitely see Tom.  Great Samuel L. Jackson.  He could play the part of Hoyt.  Passable Tom Hanks.  He’s got a hint of Stephen Colbert in him.  Not sure if that’s Jack Black, or Zach Galifianakis, or one of Jeff’s Wilco buddies.  Look at Jeff on the phone, trying to convince me to audition to play him.  Dream on, buddy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Sometimes Scarborough reminds me of Beeker from The Muppets!   —   YUR

Napoleon lost the Battle of Waterloo—here's why

Visual Description:  The condensed Corsican?

RYOSR  =  SORRY,  NROTS  =  SNORT,  EETHLM  =  HELMET,  IREDIB  =  BIRDIE   —   Giving us:  ORRSNOHETRDI

Clue/Question:  The 5-foot-2inch military leader got his troops to stand at attention – – –

Napoleon Bonaparte | Explore Royal Museums Greenwich

Answer:  IN SHORT ORDER

(Excellent stinky pun!  Everyone general-ly thinks of Napoleon Bonaparte as being French, but ethnically he’s much more Italian.  He was born on Corsica – a little north of Sardinia – in 1769, just fifteen months after France had purchased the island from the Italian city-state of Genoa.  I wonder if most Corsicans are on the short side???

No new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  It took me a couple of looks to see “helmet”.  The answer letter layout was a sneaky twelve letter jumble.  I thought it hid the words ORDER and SHORT very well.  Ignoring the obvious, I saw THEIR, and figured the first word was ON.  But that left me with ORRSD.  AtleastI’m declaring this a NEW compound word! – that helped me to see ORDER, which then led me IN short . . . to SHORT.

Great early 19th Century military review cartoon.  The second in command appears to be a toad of a sycophant.  I like how the one soldier is breaking ranks, as he stares at Napoleon’s stature, in disbelief.  I remember watching a great old movie with my mom, as a kid, called “The Corsican Brothers”.  A splendid old swashbuckler!  Haven’t seen it in forever.  I’ll have to check with TCM.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
