Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/17/16

I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees.  I am going to close my eyes and listen.”   —   Anne Lamott

(“Hectic trees”?  I mean I get it – birds chirping and squirrels scurrying, etc – but I always associate negative connotations to the word “hectic”.  I might have used the word lively, or something.  But, she’s the “pro”, and I just write a blog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The carpenter has had his hammer for so long because it was – – –

Answer:  TOUGH AS NAILS

(Tougher, actually.  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I didn’t find any of them to be tough though.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, and gave nothing away.  I guess the answer just hit home.  The cartoon hit the nail on the head!  I’ve had one of those cheapo hammers break on me before.  Very frustrating.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
