Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/27/16

Behind every successful man stands a surprised mother-in-law.”   —   Hubert Humphrey

(Hubie was very good with the clever quips.  I always struggle with the Cryptoquote in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle.  They only carry it on Sundays.  Instead of being more horizontal, like a normal newspaper would run it, it’s very vertical, with two words on top of one word, on top of two words, on top of the hyphenated word, that starts out on one line and ends up on another.  Very annoying.  And, in general, their editor just doesn’t seem to have much respect for the puzzles they run.  Or the comics, for that matter.  They’re all the reduced sized ones, and they’re too many, crammed on to two pages.  They should either get rid of a few of the more irrelevant – in my opinion – ones, or spring for a third page.  In my opinion, newspapers are failing because of poor editors, as much as anything else.  How’s that for an extraneous rant?  LOL.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(For me, the biggest problem is realizing that I’m not a kid anymore . . . and that my metabolism ain’t what it used to be!  Moderation was always my go to buzz-word, but there comes a time when you need to make some more significant changes.  Some guys don’t seem to have any problems with weight.  I guessed you’d have to say that they are blessed.  

Hey, guess what?!  We actually have a new clue word today.  Yes, “hugged” will need to be added to the ralis95 – world famous – clue word database!  Somebody better wake the boss, because he rarely looks at the Sunday Spoilers.  LOL!  Every single jumble came up as new today.  That’s a little unusual.  None of them gave me any trouble though.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic jumble.  The excellent cartoon set up the Jumble very well.  The chubby hubby, on the bathroom scale, with a look of despair.  And, his loving wife, trying to take his mind off his woes.  Nice job.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
