“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” — Og Mandino
(That’s what ya gotta believe! Not 100% sure that this is true, but . . . “Ya gotta get yer mind right.” Be well and do good, friends. Sorry about yesterday’s Cryptoquote. I wasn’t able to get to Arkansas Online until really late, and then this computer I’m using froze up on me.) — YUR

Clue/Question: The Cyclops couldn’t help but notice the new arrival after she – – –
Answer: CAUGHT HIS EYE
(Ooh! Good stinky pun. We even have a new clue word, in “shrug”, and it looks like all the jumbles are new today. I thought “rancid” was a pretty tough solve. The answer letter layout was outstanding! And, the cartoon was tons of fun. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” — Elie Wiesel
(Which is why there are so many protestors of police brutality these days. The corporate media would love them to go away, but they won’t. Especially, when a new occurences of police “misconduct” happen every few weeks . . . somewhere in this country of ours. Be well, be safe . . . and do good, friends.) — YUR

“My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.” — Aristotle
(But of course! For who else’s sake would you wish someone well? I think the old boy had gotten a bit jaded by this time. This might have been a tougher solve, had I not seen/figured out the author, so early on. I feel like I cheated. Although, this is the first Aristotle quote in quite some time. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
Caesar salad at Nichols Restaurant in Marina del Rey, California. :Comment: “A far cry from the original ;]]” — ONE of many variations. See e.g. Doral Chenoweth on this. As an eye-catcher in Caesar salad, it should be replaced by something like this, as soon as available. — any IP 12:43, 30 July 2007 (UTC) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer: “LETTUCE“ KNOW
(FANTASTIC stinky pun! And, very well played. The Facebook biz was a little misdirection. And, I believe that Hoyt deliberately had the CULK in the answer letter layout to make some people believe the second word was LUCK. Don’t let that barren plain fool you folks! It’s covering fertile ground! At least, LUCK was my first impression. But, I couldn’t do anything with WEENTOT, so I then figured the second word might be KNOW. That left me with EETCULT, which again, I think is a brilliant jumble. But, the light switch did turn on, and I quickly got the stinky pun. There were no new words today, but three of the jumbles were new, to me. I could only verify that we’ve seen the one for “ninth” before. “Knotty” is one of those words that spell out in alphabetical order! Like I’ve said before, I always enjoy the cartoons that include our buddies. Be well and do good, friends.) — YUR
