Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/05/18

Image result for Jane Austen

To flatter and follow others, without being flattered and followed in turn, is but a state of half enjoyment.”   —   Jane Austen

(Sometimes the flattery and following of others is important to me, but not to the extent where I’m not going to be myself.  Heck!  I know I’m great.  I am a legend in my own mind!  For those who see that . . . huzzah!  For the rest of you . . . thbpbpthpt!!!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’m not sure how many of you saw this comment from a couple of days ago, so I’m going to re-post it, right here.  There was a Cryptoquote attributed to Stanley Horowitz, on 09/24/16, that I thought was very descriptive.  Well, he recently saw it, or someone pointed it out to him, and he sent this reply:

My name is Stanley Horowitz. I am the author of Winter Is An Etching. I wrote it for the Reader’s Digest in 1983 for $50. In 2016 the Digest returned all rights to me. I wrote other famous quotes for them like, “Nothing lowers the level of conversation more than raising the voice,” and “Worry is a fast getaway on a wooden horse.” Please do not publish my email address or give it out. Thank you, Stanley Horowitz

Pretty cool, huh?  I think it’s the first time the author of a quote, used in the Cryptoquote, has ever written to the blog.  It made my night!      YUR

Visual Description:  A fried egg omelet?

FAYDF  =  DAFFY,  CREWK  =  WRECK,  EERRTV  =  REVERT,  SABPYS  =  BYPASS   —   Giving us:  AFEKRTBAS

Answer:  BREAK FAST

(She better break them quickly, or she’s having fried eggs for breakfast.  And, if she’s really in a hurry, fried eggs are her best bet anyway.  But, it makes for a cute, stinky pun.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  But, it looks like all of the jumbles are new!  I thought “sabpys” was the trickiest of them.  It took me more than a quick look.  The answer letter layout was a nifty jumble too.  Certainly not obvious.  Very contemporary cartoon, with the lady holding a cell phone between her shoulder and ear.  Must be a millennial.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  How ’bout dem Eagles, folks!!!  It’s been a while since I’ve backed the winner of any sport!  LOL!      YUR

PPS.  Hey, jenn!  I just re-read my reply to your comment about “flaut”, and it comes off as a little snarky.  Sorry about that, hon.  I didn’t mean for it to be that, but I need to own it.  I hope you were not offended.     YUR
