Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/25/14

Why do grandparents and grandchildren get along so well?  They have the same enemy – the mother.”   —   Claudette Colbert

(Cute.  Our first Claudette Colbert quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  There seems to be no apparent relationship between the great actress, Claudette, and the comedian, Steven.  Both were/are great talents though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/25/14

Visual Description:  Amateur sailors, giving it a shot.

SPATN  =  PANTS,  TVOID  =  DIVOT,  GARFOE  =  FORAGE,  SUMEIS  =  MISUSE   —   Giving us:  TSOTOAUE

Clue/Question:  They weren’t sure what it would be like sailing in the Mediterranean, so they went – – –

Answer:  OUT TO SEA

(Pretty obvious today.  The biggest problem for me, and probably a number of you, was that the second circle was in the wrong place in “forage”.  It should have been in the fourth position, but in the Democrat and Chronicle, and the Arkansas Online, it’s in the sixth position!  I’m not sure how it is in my home paper, or in others, but it likely had an adverse effect on a good number of you.  I don’t believe any of the clue words were new today.  They all look familiar.  Ironically, the only jumble that wasn’t new was the one for “forage”.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  And, the cartoon was a quaint little European seaport.  The cartoon in today’s paper was a little reduced, so it’s hard to comment on any detail, but I’m pretty sure Jeff skipped the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  I guess it wouldn’t exactly be appropriate, considering the couple is heading out in a sailboat themselves!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
