(Beautiful!  Man on the moon.  Probably, the most celebrated accomplishment of our lifetime.  I miss those days of lift-offs, orbiting, spacewalks, and re-entries.  There was nothing so relieving as watching a successful splashdown.  Our astronauts were true pioneers and real American heroes.  I think the abundance of Sci-fi has kind of ruined things for the younger generations.  They don’t seem to appreciate all the sacrifice that went into getting us to the moon.  It’s not their fault though.  Our government kind of dropped the ball on keeping the space program in the public eye.  No doubt that was by design though.  For the most part, I don’t think they really want us to know that much of what they do up there.  Too bad.  I miss all the wonder.

No new clue words today.  All the jumbling appears to be new though.  The only one that hung me up, at all, was “indoor”.  Great job on the answer letter layout too.  And, a fine Jeff Knurek cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
