FOR AMERICA TO BECOME A PIONEER IN THE AVIATION INDUSTRY, IT TOOK THE – – –
BSHGROTRTHIER = ”RIGHT” BROTHERS
Happy Monday, everyone! Our Jumble sleuthing duties began with four clue words that were old friends. They all came into view at first glance making for an easy start to the week. The anagram for HIGHER was, in my opinion, the most cryptic of the bunch so it’s my pick for the hardest word for today. The layout of BUSHY was the same anagram we saw when it was last used on 9/21/16. A quick search of the archives revealed that TRUSTY was the oldest word of the day with a gameplay date of 10/16/14.
Today’s cartoon was a scene that has played out numerous times in the past and was most likely instantly recognizable to regular players of the game. In the foreground we see three Jumble characters that provide today’s dialogue while in the background we see two shadowy figures taking flight in a primitive looking airplane.
If the visual clues didn’t provide enough information for you to figure out what you were looking at, the cartoon sentence provided two additional ones. America and aviation industry were the key words this morning which should have brought the Wright Brothers to mind.
I was surprised to see that the airplane was piloted by both brothers at the same time as I always thought that they had flown alone. A quick search revealed that Orville and Wilbur had promised their father, who feared losing both sons in an airplane accident, that they would never fly together. The father made a single exception, however, on May 25, 1910, and allowed the brothers to share a six-minute flight near Dayton with Orville piloting and Wilbur the passenger. After landing, Orville took his 82-year-old father on his first and only flight. As Orville gained elevation, his excited father cried out, “Higher, Orville, higher!”
The final solve was a 13-letter anagram that wasn’t overly challenging. BROTHERS was easy to spot leaving RIGHT to be found in the remaining letters. It was another easy start to the week so I’ll enjoy my win for the day and look forward to the challenges ahead. Have a marvelous Monday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow for more Jumble fun!
