Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/16/18

No pain GAIN is so certain as that which proceeds from the economical use of what you already have.”   —   Latin Proverb

(It’s all Greek to me, folks!  Or, at least Latin, in this case.  Can one of my smarter readers put this in to plain language for me?  I’d much appreciate it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/16/18

Visual Description:  Billiards boss.

STYXI  =  SIXTY,  THEBR  =  BERTH,  NOBORC  =  BRONCO,  GIJENL  =  JINGLE   —   Giving us:  STBHOIG

Clue/Question:  When it came to showing off his ability, the pool player was a – – –

Answer:  BIG SHOT

(That’s some fancy shootin’, pahdnah!  I’m lucky if I can get a single ball in, with a clear shot, from a few inches away.  I was a little better, in my youth, but I think you really need to play regularly in order to stay sharp.  But, I don’t need no trouble here in River City!

No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear to be new. I had a tough time with “noborc”.  I had to skip it and come back to it, but at least I didn’t have to back into it.  The other three I saw right away.  Decent answer letter layout.  But, Monday’s usually aren’t all that tough, when it comes to the big solve.

Fine cartoon.  I’m sure I’m supposed to recognize at least the two men, but I don’t know if they’re movie characters, or real pool pros.  Maybe Jeff will enlighten us?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Congratulations to France for winning the World Cup Tournament, yesterday!  Better luck next time Croatia!  And, congrats to Novak Djokovic for winning his 4th Wimbledon title!  Kevin Anderson can finally rest his exhausted body.     YUR
