Why don’t you start believing that no matter what you have or haven’t done, that your best days are still out in front of you?   —   Joel Osteen

(Our first Joel Osteen quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  And, it’s a great one!  Great advice!  Be well, keep plugging, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Just so all of you know, I failed to solve the Sunday Cryptoquote from 07/17/16.  There were no single letter words, and – I think – nothing ended in E.  There were a few double letters, one in the quote and two in the author name, but I couldn’t come up with Errol Flynn.  It was a toughie!   —   YUR

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”   —   Mahatma Gandhi

Who can take a sunrise (who can take a sunrise)
Sprinkle it with dew (sprinkle it with dew)
Cover it with beetroot and a miracle or two
The Gandhi Man (the Gandhi Man)
Oh, the Gandhi Man can (the Gandhi Man can)
The Gandhi Man can
‘Cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good (Makes the world taste good)

I believe Mother Teresa took Gandhi’s advice.  Be well and do good, friends.   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Trump supporters???

VRUCE  =  CURVE,  OMESO  =  MOOSE,  CADFEE  =  DEFACE,  SLAYGS  =  GLASSY   —   Giving us:  REMDALA

Clue/Question:  Crime was on the rise and some people were becoming – – –

Answer:  ALARMED

(Just kidding!  But fear, and the promise of “security” are increasingly big sellers these days.  And, if you give in to all the hype, as so many of us are wont to do, you let this fear take too much control of your life.  Do you want to keep the bad guys away from your home?  Get yourself a serious dog.  Not a yapper, but a real woofer.  And . . . try to keep him/her a little underfed!

We have a new clue word today, in “glassy”.  Our good friend, ralis95, is going to have to take a break from fighting those California wildfires, and update his world famous database!  All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new as well.  The answer letter layout was fine, but I don’t think anyone struggled very much to solve today’s Jumble.  Appropriately domestic cartoon.  Be well, don’t let fear rule your life, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Television has proved that people will look at anything other than each other.”   —   Ann Landers

(Not true!  Whenever either Hillary, or The Donald, say something patently false, or exceedingly stupid, my wife and I always look at each other in total disbelief.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 07/24/16

Visual Description:  Shoe salesman’s delight.

SOFINU  =  FUSION,  COSTKE  =  SOCKET,  HOTFUR  =  FOURTH,  CEEDDO  =  DECODE,  KATREM  =  MARKET,  CYILSK  =  SICKLY   —   Giving us:  FONSOKFOHECDRKESCK

Clue/Question:  She loved the new designer sandals.  One pair in particular – – –

Pre-Answer:  4 Words  (7-letters) (3-letters) (5-letters) (3-letters)

 

 

Answer:  KNOCKED HER SOCKS OFF

(Wow!  An 18 letter answer.  That’s about as big as they come.  No new clue words today, but every single jumble came up as new!  “HOTFUR” sounds either like a new compound word, or lyrics to a Van Halen song!  The answer letter layout was a master jumble!  I thought that the answer was going to be harder to get, but when I saw that there were two Fs, I knew one of the words was going to be OFF.  Fun cartoon.  My friend, George, who has sold shoes for nearly 40 years, is celebrating his birthday today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I don’t deserve any credit for turning the other cheek as my tongue is always in it.”   —   Flannery O’Connor

(I always enjoy reading about writers that I’m not familiar with.  And, I was a little surprised to find out that Flannery was a woman!  Flannery was actually her middle name.  I guess she didn’t care for Mary, her given name.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
