WHEN TAKING PHOTOS OF CHUCK YEAGER BREAKING THE SOUND BARRIER, IT WAS TOUGH TO – – –
OMONZI = ZOOM IN
Good Monday morning, Jumble friends! It was a super easy puzzle today with all of our clue words being recycled favorites. The anagrams were all new but didn’t pose much of a challenge. VIOLIN was the only one to give me a moment of pause making it my choice for the most difficult anagram of the day. It was also the oldest clue word in the bunch having last been used on 10/25/16 and jumbled as IONLIV.
At first glance, the setting for today’s cartoon looked like a repeat. We see three men in the middle of a wide open expanse that appear to be taking pictures of a plane going by. The cartoon sentence informs us that it’s Chuck Yeager that they’ve come to see, but he’s going so fast that they can’t take a decent photo or recording of the flight.
Regular players of the game might recall that back in June we had another Yeager themed cartoon. It also featured three people staring up at the sky, but they appeared to be members of the air force. Since today’s game was a cinch, I figured that I’d include a link to my previous post where you can read all about this historic event in more detail.
Since the cartoon featured an event that occurred in 1947, Jeff was able to capture the feel of a period piece with the members of the press dressed in suits and hats of the era. The equipment that we see them using must have been high-tech at the time but it appears oversized and outdated which also added to the period effect. My favorite detail of the piece was the vapor cone that we see indicating the point where Yeagers’ aircraft broke the sound barrier.
The letter layout for the final solution was 6-letters in length. The “Z” was all I needed to see to figure out the solution. Although the surprise answer was an easy task, it suited the cartoon perfectly and made for a fun finish. Have a merry Monday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
