Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/29/18

The first to apologize is the bravest.  The first to forgive is the strongest.  The first to forget is the happiest.”   —   Unknown

(It definitely should flow in this order though.  A good apology should contain some kind of explanation for the offending words or actions.  This allows the hurt one to forgive.  Then, with the passage of a little time, both can forget, and get on with the relationship.  Be well and do well, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 06/29/18

Visual Description:  “Where America’s day begins!”

IPNTU  =  INPUT,  YAMOF  =  FOAMY,  WARELY  =  LAWYER,  DEONLO  =  NOODLE   —   Giving us:  ITFMAWENOD

Clue/Question:  The sun has been coming up in the east every morning since the – – –

Answer:  DAWN OF TIME

(It looks like a Maine version of a Folger’s commercial.  This was the finest kind of pun!  Ayuh.  Hahd tellin’ not knowin’ if this were a tough one, orah an easy one.  I thought Thursday’s was hahdah than Wednesdasy’s, but some of ya thought Wednesday was wicked hahd.  Wheyahevah ya wanna go in Maine they’ll tell ya:  Ya cahn’t get theyah from heeah.  So, don’t bothah askin’ for directions!

No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I was able to see them all today.  The answer letter layout was probably the toughest jumble of the day.  I thought there was absolutely nothing obvious about it.  It was the grand combination of a good leading clue/question, the great daybreak cartoon, and the avoidance of the word “dawn” that made the answer attainable for me.

Wicked good cahtoon, Jeff!  Nice lahbstah pot, lighthouse – but not Emerson – and a beautiful sunrise.  “Morning has broken, like the first morning.  Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.  Praise for the singing, praise for the morning.  Praise for them springing fresh from the world.”  Thank you Cat!  “The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup.”  Thank you, Folgers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
