Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/22/17

Photography can never grow up if it imitates some other medium.  It has to walk alone; it has to be itself.”   —   Berenice Abbott

(Our very first Berenice Abbott quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  It seems she was quite the photographer, and she lived to the ripe old age of 93!  She was born regular old Bernice, but added the classic middle E, during some point in her life.  I guess it made her name look more regal and classy, as it is the original spelling of the name.  Another something that I had not been aware of.  The Cryptoquote goes a long way to teaching me something new every day!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    She was working and studying in France with French artist, so she adopted the French spelling of Bernice: Berênice.

    Keep up your great work, I love hearing the stories/tales behind the puzzle, its actually why I follow you. I dont do the crypto crossword, I really get into biographies and personal stories. so much more fascinating and amazing and true, than watching “reality tv”. As I’ve found, truth is more bizarre than fiction!

    But your normal word puzzle scramble, I nail it each time, so thats good, but your crypto thing here, as we see it in Melbourne, Australia in the Herald Sun newspaper (owned by rupert murdoch – news limited) the crypto thing is a full on obscure crossword puzzle.

    But your joke pic/toon like “his appetite was so big after seeing the old bones of the dinosaurs at the museum”

    and the answer would be “mega saurus” or “dino sized” or “terradactyl size”

    hope I’ve given you some free info YUR

    or even “dino sized meal” or “mega meal deal” or “pig out smorgasboard” or “big buffet” whatever, use whatever of these mere mortal offerings YUR

    yep, its 905pm in Melbourne, Australia. You might be long in bed (NZ and Australian saying – long in bed means “you went to bed a really long time ago” (unless you’re drunkard party animals, which I can see from your intelligent posts, you’re not, meaning, you stopped partying, say 1am American time, and its roughly, lunchtime time here, in Melbourne
