Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/24/14

We look forward to the time when the power of love will replace the love of power.  Then will our world know the blessings of peace.”   —   W.E. Gladstone

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/22/14

You can pretend to be serious; you can’t pretend to be witty.”   —   Sacha Guitry

(The well respected French actor, director and playwright, who died a couple of weeks after I was born.  He has some great quotes.  I hope we will see some more of them soon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/21/14

If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right.  But do not care to convince him.  Men will believe what they see.  Let them see.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(You could probably convince a woman.  They know how to listen.  Us guys are so visual.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/20/14

If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”   —   Toni Morrison

(Really?  The day after a Maya Angelou quote they decide to drop a Toni Morrison on us?!  Does this satisfy some kind of guilt ridden, white girl quota?!  Just kidding.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Belated) Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 11/16/14

Visual Description:  Woes of a slow market.

CRETKO  =  ROCKET,  DOUMIP  =  PODIUM,  FONMIR  =  INFORM,  SNITIS  =  INSIST,  TORYPE  =  POETRY,  MALSUY  =  ASYLUM    —   Giving us:  OCOIMFOINSOTSUM

Clue/Question:  When the real estate agent couldn’t get enough clients, she was – – -

Answer:  OUT OF COMMISSION

(This was fun and challenging.  No new clue words but some of the jumbles were new.  For some reason I had trouble getting “podium”, but no trouble getting “poetry” . . . for a change.  The answer letter layout was pretty tough.  Great cartoon.  Nice pants.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Belated) Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/16/14

Some people will believe anything if you whisper it to them.”   —   Louis B. Nizer

(It’s true.  And, I know some people who speak in whispers, as a way of getting people to listen to them.  That’s gotta be related.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 11/19/14

Visual Description:  Growling mongrels.

SLEBS  =  BLESS,  SOCRU  =  SCOUR,  DEEIBS  =  BESIDE,  CARYEM  =  CREAMY   —   Giving us:  BESSORSDCRE

Clue/Question:  The dogs that didn’t get along were – – -

Answer:  CROSS-BREEDS

(Another challenging Jumble from the guest cartoonists.  And, our friend Mr. Hoyt, of course.  No new clue words today, but all the jumbles with the exception of the one for “bless” are new to me.  Beautiful answer letter layout.  Love the cartoon.  We don’t get Ballard Street in my paper, but the artwork looks very familiar.  Hmm.  Hey!  Why is it when your neighbor’s shepherd impregnates your lab you end up with a mutt?  But, when a “breeder” does it – and sends a few bucks to the AKC – we get the newest trendy breed?  Are we really that gullible, folks?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
