An original idea.  That can’t be too hard.  The library must be full of them.”   —   Stephen Fry

(Our first Stephen Fry quotation!  Welcome to the Cryptoquote Club, Stevie!  He’s a fine actor.  I’ve seen him in a number of things, but I remember him most from his recurring role in the series “Bones”.  Very funny guy, with a good head on his shoulders.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Just for the record, Stephen Fry is two months younger than me, but he looks ten years older!  A sign that he’s led a fuller life than me?  —   YUR

Answer:  GAME, SET AND MATCH

(Because I always start at the top left, and work my way down, write out the answer letters, then look at the cartoon, and finally read the clue/question, I was able to get today’s answer super easily.  I didn’t even need to read the clue/question, because of how the answer spaces were laid out, and the letters I had available.

All of today’s clue words were old favorites.  But, all of their jumbles appear to be new.  “Accent” is one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was a fine, 12-letter jumble that, by itself, did not give anything away. 

Fun tennis cartoon.  Today’s dialog was almost a little misdirection.  The answer really didn’t have much of anything to do with them being identical twins, other than that they were a perfect match!  Bob and Mike Bryan are a very prolific pair.  They almost never lose.  They communicate on a different level than most people, plus they use a set of hand singles when they play.  Most doubles pairs have to constantly worry about what their partner might do, in any given situation.  But, these guys are essentially of one mind.  Hard to beat that!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
