Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/24/14

Science fiction is no more written for scientists than ghost stories are written for ghosts.”   —   Brian Adliss

(I guess this has to be explained to some people!  This is our first Brian Adliss quotation since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Yes, Art.  The author’s last name was not solvable.  I Googled Brian Auliss, and they offered Mr. Adliss.  This might not be an issue if I were better read.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR


Jumble Spoiler – 10/23/14

Visual Description:  The try . . . at DIY.

HATSS  =  STASH,  BALFE  =  FABLE,  STARPY  =  PASTRY,  TRUEPT  =  PUTTER   —   Giving us:  SSBEPTYPTE

Clue/Question:  He wanted to follow the instructions for installing the new staircase – – -

Answer:  STEP BY STEP

(Worked for me!  Perhaps a little predictable, but we got a good stinky pun out of it.  ralis95 beat me to the punch today!  He’s correct though.  We do have a new clue word – No. 3000 – in “putter”.  Mr. Hoyt reached a real milestone . . . a nice round number too, with today’s newest clue word.  He also gave us all new jumbles once again.  A really spiffy answer letter layout as well.  Nothing given away there.  If you didn’t figure this out by the great cartoon’s set up, then the the answer letter layout could have helped . . . to keep you in the dark.  Building things yourself can be a lot of fun, as long as you can understand the instructions.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly lit front porch.”   —   Robert Brault

Positivity while decaying daily

unclerave:

Every now and then I like a nice poem.

Originally posted on Perspectives on life, the universe and everything:

death and dust
reality unable to run from
yes, it will come
yes, we will become
sand, dust and on a wet day, clay
but it is not today
sun is shining
at least the weather says so
why worry, and waste
cry and sob in a haste
life has enormous beauty,
love is a duty
if you have time
before it is time
go forth and laugh
scream in joy
plays with nature’s
endless toys
rain drops on your head
what spring has said
in your ear
which made you giggle
wind whispers,
hug trees, kiss bees,
perhaps not too much
as other lips are waiting
and wondering when
the moment will come
not the one which worries
and make you hurry,
the one where they get
some drips,
of your beautiful
bare lips

Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”   —   Harry S. Truman
