Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/09/18

It’s not that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but it’s your best friends who are your diamonds.”   —   Gina Barreca

(Nice quote, from a newcomer to the Cryptoquote.  This is the first time they have used one of her quotes, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Welcome to the club, Gina!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/09/18

Visual Description:  The female double standard.

MOUGB  =  GUMBO,  AGGUE  =  GAUGE,  BLDLAA  =  BALLAD,  JADINO  =  ADJOIN   —   Giving us:  BOUGLDDOI

Clue/Question:  The carpenter was very muscular, and his admirers noticed his – – –

Answer:  GOOD BUILD

(If this guy is building a deck – and he works cheap – send him over to my house!  My deck is in dire straits!  I’ll even be his assistant.  My build is not as good, but I am trying to shed a few lbs.  A nice Monday morning Jumble.  Nobody wants to have to think too hard on any given Monday.

All old favorite clue words today.  We had “gauge” just a few weeks ago, and “gumbo” pops up frequently, as does “ballad”.  We haven’t seen “adjoin” in a while, but when we did we likely saw it with “jadino”.  Only “mougb” and “bldlaa” seem to be new jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a fine jumble.  It gave nothing away.

Fine cartoon.  The dude looks fairly studly.  I liked the nails in his mouth!  Much easier than having to fish them out of your pocket.  I decided to give the ladies an Aussie stud-muffin.  He’s sitting on a pretty lame deck though!  It looks like Jeff went a little basic with his circular saw.  Maybe he was a little pressed for time.  Good Jumble though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
