(Very good!  The guys know how I love the movie themed puzzles!  Although I didn’t quite pick up on this one right away.  Sometimes I kinda confuse “Kingpin” with “The Big Lebowski“.  They’re both late ’90s movies, with bowling being the central theme.  And of course, they’re both great!

No new clue words today, but there definitely was some good jumbling going on.  I really liked both “enough” and “divine”.  But, “squawk” and “intact” were also jumbled very well.  The answer letter layout was  good, but the answer was just a little too obvious for it to matter much.  I think the Woody Harrelson – Roy – is a little more recognizable than Bill Murray‘s Ernie.  The bowling ball should have been my biggest clue, but I threw a gutter-ball on this one.  I guess it’s just not my day, folks.  That’s about it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yeah.  I opted for a different Kingpin.  Great villain!   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/02/13

Update – 06/05/13:  I got help!  From Bet!  I was right with my Es and As, but using M for D and N for Y gave me the answer!  And, here it is:

(For LKY I had tried: AGE, ARE, ATE, MEN, NOW, ONE, OUR, OWN, SHE, THE and TWO.  I had started on TEN, but I guess I was too tired to see it through!  Be well and do good, friends.  And, thanks again to Bet!)   —   YUR

Back on 06/02/13:

I need HELP, folks!  These Sunday ones are always a little tricky because they always leave out the punctuation.  And, for a guy like me, that is key!  The author isn’t helping me any, and that’s usually my out.  Complicating matters today is the fact that there are no one or two letter words.  You’d think that the two words starting with D and the three starting with L would be a big help, but I’m coming up empty!  I’ve been thinking the K is the E, and maybe the S is the A, but I’m still just spinning my wheels.

Now obviously, I DON’T WANT THE ANSWER.  All I ask of you is a vital clue.  I need a hand up, NOT a handout!

Thank you,
