Answer:  FIT FOR A KING

(“My wife’s cooking is fit for a king.  Here King, here King!”  That’s one of my buddy, Tony’s, favorite gags!  But of course, he actually loves his wife’s cooking.  He has a very sensitive stomach, and likes things on the bland side.  To each his own.  She doesn’t like people calling him Tony though.  She says:  Your name is Anthony.  Why do you let them call you Tony?  Uh . . .  Again, to each his own!  

No new clue words today, however three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve surprisingly seen “fimdef” before.  It was the only jumble that I thought was tough.  The answer letter layout was a masterpiece of a jumble.  Very nicely cryptic.  I’m stuck with the reduced-sized cartoon for the next few days, so I can’t make out any clever detail.  Love the big ape though!  The blond sweep of hair is a little different.  If the tie were longer, I’d say Jeff was going for a Donald Trump look!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/26/17

You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure.  The process is its own reward.”   —   Amelia Earhart

(I know some of you may have noticed that I changed the comma after “procedure” to a period, and then made the second part of the quote a separate sentence.  The comma felt awkward to me, and when I looked the quote up online I saw it both ways, so I figured others must see it my way.  Who thinks it should be the awkward, run-on sentence, with the comma, and why???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
