To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow.  So do it.”   —   Kurt Vonnegut

(This is one of the reasons why Vonnegut is one of my all-time favorite authors.  So glad to finally see a Vonnegut quotation in the Cryptoquote.  This is the first since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  I wonder if some republicans  have some kind of base aversion to this quote?  Hmm???  Be well, friends.  Peace.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/23/11

Hemingway

Visual Description:  “Papa” looking to renovate his Soflo abode.

APNWR  =  PRAWN,  SRMUT  =  STRUM,  EEPELD  =  PEELED,  UNOCYT  =  COUNTY   —   Giving us:  RNSTMEEEONY

Clue/Question:  Having this made it possible for Hemingway to upgrade his house.

Answer:  ERNEST MONEY

(How can you NOT like today’s Jumble?  Some good clue words, nicely scrambled.  Fairly decent – coulda been better – scrambling of the answer letters.  An answer that has both a lightly used adjective, and makes for a good pun.  And the whole Hemingway theme is timed nicely to coincide with the 112th anniversary of his birth.  Festivities are still going on in Key West.  The lookalike contest was just in the news this morning.  I was looking for my buddy, Frank, but it’s kind of hard to spot someone in a sea of very similar looking people.  Today’s was another good example of the guys trying to shake things up a bit.  Yer uncle approves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
