Uncle Rave and all the ravettes!

A missive from the Big Man!

…I (David L. Hoyt) have a new app out this weekend called WORD SEARCH WORLD TRAVELER. I was wondering if you wanted to let your readers know about the app.

We’re sort of calling this weekend WORD SEARCH WORLD TRAVELER WEEKEND! We’re pushing hard to get the word out today and tomorrow hoping that we make some sort of App Store list like “Hot” or “Trending.” It’s a long shot, but you never know. I basically take the money I make from apps and donate it to the David L. Hoyt Education Foundation, so I’m trying hard to get the word out about WSWT.

I’ve copied and pasted some info below about the app.

WORD SEARCH WORLD TRAVELER is free to download and comes with 500 hand-crafted word search puzzles with more on the way! Plus there’s an awesome daily game.

For more information and links to the app stores, check out:


Word Search games are fun and challenging!  So, now you guys know!  I’m a bit of a Technosaurus, but don’t let that stop you guys!  Check it out, and spread the word.  The proceeds go to a good cause!  Play on, friends!   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/29/18

Why does a woman work to change a man’s habits and then complain he’s not the man she married?”   —   Barbra Streisand

(Irony?  Paradox?  Some women just relish in the exercise in futility.  I guess the lesson is to not marry someone who you think you need to improve.  A little ironic that the Sunday Jumble and the Sunday Cryptoquote both deal with marriage.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 07/29/18

Visual Description:  The catered affair.


Clue/Question:  The wedding reception was awesome!  The newlyweds were happy to – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (3-letters),  (5-letters),  AND  (2-letters)  “(7-letters)”


( . . . for tomorrow we die!  No, no, no!  This is a happy, happy occasion!  But chances are the bride, and some others in her party, have been die-ting, leading up to the big day!  They want to look just right in their dresses.  And, to be fair, I’m sure a few of the gentlemen also tried to drop a few lbs, to look dapper in their suit, or tux.  It probably would have been easier, for all parties involved, if they had just eloped.  But, big business does their best to SELL us all on the idea of having to have the fairy princess experience.  Heaven forbid we say NO to that blatant con job!  It’s not always the bride who wants the big wedding though.  Sometimes the insistence on the big wedding is the desire of one, or both, set of parents.  Occasionally, it’s the groom who wants it!  But generally, guys could give a hoot.  To each their own, I guess.

Absolutely no new clue words today!  However, five of the six jumbles came up as new.  Two of them stumped me, and I had to back into them.  Both “dariem” and “dyenob” did me in.  I considered married for “dariem”, because of the cartoon, but was short an R.  And for “dyenob” I was thinking embody, substituting the M for the N.  I couldn’t get past those erroneous ideas.  The answer letter layout was an ambitious 17-letter jumble!  But, because of the great cartoon, its dialog, and the leading nature of the clue/question, I was able to figure out the answer, even with six missing letters.  The layout of the answer blanks also came into play.

Great wedding reception cartoon.  The bride and groom, with interlocked arms, drinking a toast.  The floral centerpiece on the table in front of them.  The food and drink.  Just lots of great detail.  Nice Sunday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
