Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 10/19/14

Visual Description:  An all-time great sitcom!

HILCNF  =  FLINCH,  CNITEE  =  ENTICE,  CREADA  =  ARCADE,  LAWESE  =  WEASEL,  GRECAH  =  CHARGE,  BRYDIH  =  HYBRID   —   Giving us:  FHETARAESREHRI

Clue/Question:  When Louie passed out checks to the drivers on “Taxi“,  he was giving everyone – – -

Answer:  THEIR FARE SHARE

(Excellent!  No new clue words, but some new jumbles.  The only one I really struggled some with was “arcade”.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful jumble.  The cartoon is priceless.  You can clearly make out Nardo, Reverend Jim, Louie and Banta.  The central character has got to be Alex.  Although it could possibly be Latka.  Definitely no Wheeler here.  That show had everything.  Everyone was so surprised that ABC discontinued it, essentially at it’s height of popularity and critical acclaim.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The important thing when you are to do something brave is to have someone on hand to witness it.”   —   Michael Howard

(Funny . . . and true!  Who knows how many other heroes may have come and gone?  Without a witness, their deeds likely went unrecognized.  Be brave anyway.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/24/14

Visual Description:  No one can beat Father Time.  No one.

THACC  =  CATCH,  DRABN  =  BRAND,  THIREM  =  HERMIT,  BLAMEG  =  GAMBLE   —   Giving us:  CTHANDHEITGAE

Clue/Question:  When he beat the Grim Reaper in the poker game, he was – – -

Answer:  CHEATING DEATH

(Things live, and things die . . . anon.  But, only time marches on and on . . . and on.  A nice long, 13-letter answer!  Wow.  That’s like a Sunday Jumble answer.  I’ll try to post this post Sunday’s Jumble spoiler this evening.  I don’t have access to my ralis95 clue word database, but I’d venture to say that all of today’s clue words are old favorites.  New jumbles for all but “hermit”.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  Very clever cartoon, and concept.  I wonder how many dealers those two have gone through???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/24/14

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

(I guess this has to be explained to some people!  This is our first Brian Aldiss 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. Aldiss.  This might not be an issue if I were better read.  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

(Terrific quote!  Hope springs eternal, people!  Even for the most jaded of us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/22/14

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

(Give ‘Em Hell, Harry!  This is our first Harry Truman quote since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  I’d like to think it’s a truism.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
