KEPTOC  =  POCKET,  GATIMS  =  STIGMA,  EUTMID  =  TEDIUM,  REVONG  =  GOVERN,  HLTILR  =  THRILL,  QDILIU  =  LIQUID   —   Giving us:  OKSTTIOENTRIID

Clue/Question:  When her boyfriend broke up with her during their morning walk, she . . .

Answer:  TOOK IT IN STRIDE

(I think that there’s a lot to like in this Jumble.  Jeff’s cartoon sets it up very nicely!  The layout of the four blank answer words made solving it a little easier than I thought it would.  And, that’s a good thing because I really needed the answer, in order to back into one of the clue words!  I was having a very difficult time in solving “tedium”.  I wrote out 15 various combinations of those letters, none of them even coming close to “tedium”.  It was only through solving the answer that I realized I needed a “T” and an “I”.  I had tried a few combinations of letters starting with “I”, and a couple with “T”, but I figured that it had to start with “T” this time!  No new clue words, today.  And, a very good answer letter layout.  That’s about it, guys.  Be well and do good!)   —   YUR

I don’t have to look up my family tree, because I know that I’m the sap.”   —   Fred Allen

(I don’t know if this happened in every newspaper that carries the Sunday Cryptoquote, or just selected ones, like mine, but this is clearly a repeat of one from a couple of days ago.  The fun thing is that it took me about half-way through solving it before I realized it!  Whadayagonnado?  Please let me know if this happened in other newspapers than The Journal News.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
