Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/21/16

Feel what you feel, know what you know, and set your relatives free to do the same.”   —   Melody Beattie

(I always liked the name Melody.  It’s such a bright and cheery, and feminine name.  Maybe I’m a little influenced by the Irving Berlin song?  And, maybe I am a little bit of a chauvinist, but I do believe that a pretty girl is like a melody.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Definitely more of a visual pun!  The old style corded telephone, and deliberately showing the wall jack.  And, all the photos of farm land type properties.  Looks like a scene from one of the old TV series, like Petticoat Junction, or Green Acres.  Could be a young Sam Drucker.  Or, maybe The Andy Griffith Show.  He looks a little like Howard Sprague, too.  Ralis95 will have to update his world famous clue word database, for the word “wallet”.  That is if he hasn’t succumbed to the ridiculously high heat, that’s been wreaking havoc in the Southwest.  The jumble for “annex” gave me some pause, and it turns out they’ve used it before.  If I kept lists, like Vijay does, I’d have to put it on one of them.  S’about it.  Be well and do good . . . friends.)   —   YUR
