Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/03/12

If I had to live my life again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.”   —   Tallulah Bankhead

(If I hadn’t made probably the biggest mistake of my life I wouldn’t be married to the woman who I’m married to, so I wouldn’t have the children that I have, and so on and so on.  There is such a ripple effect in everything we do, no matter good or bad, that changing one thing would completely alter the course of your life.  For a few that might be desirous, but I think most of us have things about our current life, that we like/love enough, that we wouldn’t want to jeopardize them by changing something in the past.  Be well, do good . . . and be happy where you are.)   —   YUR

(Great Pun!) Jumble Spoiler – 03/03/12

English: North Church steeple in Portsmouth, N...

Visual Description:  Man-of-the-cloth worrying about the completion of his house’s construction.

PRUEP  =  UPPER,  GINIC  =  ICING,  GOTROF  =  FORGOT,  TARYAS  =  ASTRAY   —   Giving us:  PPRIIOOTTRY

Clue/Question:  Putting the spire on the building was this.

Answer:  TOP PRIORITY

(I love the pun!  A real groaner!  I liked the jumbling of all the clue words.  None of them are new to the ralis95 clue word database, but three of them start with a vowel.  Some our regulars – Lesley – very often seem to have a little trouble getting those.  I wasn’t thrilled with the answer letter layout.  You can pretty well see the word PRIORITY right there.  Just switching the order of “upper” and “icing” AND of “forgot” and “astray” would have made it much more formidable.  IIPPRTRYOOT would have made it more of a challenge, in yer uncle’s opinion.  C’mon, Hoyt!  Try to stay on point!  Great descriptive cartoon.  Nevertheless, the pun made it fun!  Be well and do good, friends.  We’re all in this together.)   —   YUR
