Asking your neighbors to tweet the ‘news’ is not unlike asking your Cocker Spaniel to buy groceries.”   —   Rheta Grimsley Johnson

(I was spinning my wheels on this one, for a good bit!  I suspected that CDP was “THE”, but I just couldn’t imagine CAPPC as “TWEET”, especially before “THE”.  I guess I’m just too much of a 20th Century kinda guy!  I finally got the ball rolling when I decided it was a good bet that the L was I, and that the first word – and eleventh – ended in ING, the LR was likely “IS”, and the JGC was likely “NOT”.  From there, things started falling into place, but there was till plenty of work to do.  Nothing stood out as a gimme.  And, the author name wasn’t really any help either!  But, I was very surprised to see that this was not the first time she has appeared in a Cryptoquote Spoiler!  Another one of her quotes was used as a Cryptoquote on 03/25/09, and – for whatever reason – I posted the Spoiler on 03/26/09.  Presumably, shortly after midnight, but who knows.  That was over 3 years ago!  You can find it by Googling:  Rheta Grimsley Johnson Quotes, and scrolling to the bottom of the page.  It reads:  Rheta Grimsley Johnson  <<  Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog.  But of course, that could move very soon, as I’m sure queries on today’s spoiler will likely exceed the earlier, and easier, quote.  I hope you guys had as much fun with today’s Cryptoquote as I did.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I forgot to mention that it’s a very hip and clever quip!     YUR

    It is cute, isn’t it? I wasn’t looking to go “puppy”, but I just wasn’t crazy about the adult Cocker Spaniels Zemanta was providing. Thanks for visiting, CDH!
