Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(As you get older, you certainly appreciate every day, more than you did when you were young.  Kids are always in a rush to see and do the next thing.  When you reach a certain age you just want the world to slow the heck down.  Just take it easy, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(Sounds to me like Ralph was channeling Yoda!  Just kidding.  Patterns of speech are forever changing.  And, of course, he was also a poet.  I can’t imagine that Ralph would be a fan of today’s political correctness, being a champion of individualism and critic of societal pressures.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The original version of her cookbook was a – – –

Image result for Julia Child and her husband

Answer: MENUSCRIPT

(I thought this was an excellent Jumble.  A true stinky pun!  I would’ve loved to have posted the spoiler on Friday, if I wasn’t in such a rush to get on the road.  And, I understand that some of you had some trouble in solving it?

All of the clue words were familiar old friends.  However, all of the jumbles came up as new.  For some reason I had some difficulty coming up with “forum”.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful ten letter jumble.  I thought manuscript right away.  Noticed there wasn’t an A.  But, then got the pun as easy as child’s play.

Great cartoon.  I’m sure they’re supposed to be someones.  Maybe Julia Child and her husband?  Maybe Jeff will tell us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(Emerson seems to have been as much in-tune with nature as Thoreau!  I should have – but I didn’t – see the author’s name until I was well into solving this.  Fun solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
