A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.”   —   Benjamin Franklin

(I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but in my newspaper today’s Cryptoquote was set up like a wrap-around quote.  Three of the words – UNLESS, FOR and BODY – started on one line, but continued on the line below.  I suspected something was up when there appeared to be three different one letter words.  It was possible that one of them might be the poetic “O”, but that is fairly rare.  Ironically, only one of the – seemingly – one letter words was actually a one lettered word.  I don’t know if this was done intentionally to make things more challenging, and is in all the newspapers this way, or if it was just a fluky thing.  Let me know if any of you guys encountered the same layout.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Fortunately, no such misprint in our paper! So it wasn’t intentional … not this time, at least. Probably would have thrown me off, too, Uncle Rave!

    This wasn’t the first time, hal. I know it happened one other time. It’s actually a nice way of making it a little more challenging! — YUR
