Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/06/17

I hope your rambles have been sweet, and your reveries spacious.”   —   Emily Dickinson

(This is an example of poetry that’s always thrown me!  Even though I felt strongly that the T was I, it could’ve been A, and the Q was E, it took me some time to solve this.  I always try to avoid the author’s name, but I saw that it started with an E, but was fixated on Edith, or possibly Erica.  I didn’t realize it was Emily Dickinson until I was 1/2 to 2/3 done!  And, I thought that SWEET was SLEEP!  RAMBLES and REVERIES certainly did not jump off the page at me!  But, it made for a satisfying solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  NOTHING TO IT

(Gotta love the American idioms!  They make for great puns.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “tisnis” in the past.  The answer letter layout was another expert jumble!  Nothing given away.  It looks like Jeff has inserted himself into a Family Circus cartoon.  He’s playing the part of Bil, the dad.  Thel is in the kitchen.  Jeffy is asking the question, and  Barfy is asleep at the foot of the bark-a-lounger!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
