Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.”   —   Hamilton Wright Mabie

(Now, this is the kind of conspiracy that we all should get behind!  A great quote from someone who appears to be new to the Cryptoquote world.  And, I didn’t even need to guess on any of the letters in his name!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —    YUR

PS.  If I haven’t mentioned it yet, to all of our Jewish readers I’d like to wish a Happy Hanukkah!      YUR

Clue/Question:  The painting of the moonshiner’s equipment was a – – –

Answer:  STILL LIFE

(I can’t imagine that there are all that many moonshiners these days.  Not sure how many “dry counties” there are anymore.  You’re probably more likely to see folks cooking meth, than running stills these days.  Which is probably more dangerous, in many ways, in the long run.  There are some small-ish companies that legally make moonshine though.  I’m not a big fan of the harder liquors – more a beer and wine guy – so I’ve never had any “white lightning”.  But, as always, to each their own!

None of today’s clue words came up as new, yet all of the jumbles did.  None of them tripped me up any.  The answer letter was also a very good jumble, but I’d be surprised if anybody had much trouble coming up with the final answer.  The cartoon was pretty amusing.  Snuffy Smith used to always try to outsmart them durn revenoores!  And, Granny liked brewing her “tonic”.  Why does “XXX” always represent both a very potent potable, and hardcore porn???  Kinda strange, huh?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
