Memory is the storehouse in which the substance of our knowledge is treasured up.”   —   Charles Bridges

(I can’t remember seeing “treasured up” before, but it works.  I’m seeing a whole slew of quotable Charles that they’ve used for the Cryptoquote, but this is the first Charles Bridges.  I’m not familiar with him.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MOO-T POINT

(Be-yoo-ti-ful!  A nice, silly Saturday pun, and a Jumble that was far from easy!  Okay, I got “onion” right away.  But, the other three clue words were both brand new, AND extremely well-jumbled!   I had a bit of trouble with both “tumor” and “unplug”, but I had to back into “pastor”!  I’m not sure ralis95 can handle adding three new clue words to his world famous database, all on one day!  Has it ever been done before???  The answer letter layout was pretty spiffy, and didn’t give anything away.  The combination of the cartoon and the layout of the answer blocks – with the quotation marks, of course – made the answer fairly obvious to me.  Love the cartoon.  Jeff draws a nice cow!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
