He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.”   —   Clarence Budington Kelland

(I’m guessing this is a semi-subtle Father’s Day quote!  It sounds like he’s saying his dad led by example.  Definitely better than someone who doesn’t practice what he preaches.  This appears to be the first Kelland quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I guessed correctly, as I Googled his name.  Welcome to the Cryptoquote Club, Clarence!  Be well and do good, friends.  And, Happy Father’s Day to all our dads . . . with us, or not!)   —   YUR

Answer:  AT A SET TIME

(A game-y pun if I ever heard one!  I guess it’s no one’s fault but my own, that I love stinky puns.  The guys kind of lobbed one in there today.  The answer was a bit of a drop shot for me.  Oh, well.  That’s the way the ball bounces.  Not every Jumble is going to be a winner.  Eh!  It served its purpose.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “pymet” having definitely been used in the past.  The answer letter layout was a decent jumble.  Nothing too obvious about it.

Nice locker room scene.  A little mild trash talk going on, between two friends.  Based on the clock on the wall, they’re going to have a full hour to warm up, if their match starts at six o’clock.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy birthday to my Dad, in the hereafter!  He’s been gone 13 years now, but he would have turned 84 today.  Miss you, Dad.      YUR
