Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/17/18

Wild is the music of autumnal winds amongst the faded woods.”   —   William Wordsworth

(Surprisingly, this appears to be our first Wordsworth quotation, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  I would have thought that this was his umpteenth quote!  Well, welcome to the Cryptoquote Club, Mr. Willy Words!  I love autumn, so I like this line!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 09/17/18

Visual Description:  Sonic BOOM!!!

FNTEO  =  OFTEN,  DALMY  =  MADLY,  LOVINI  =  VIOLIN,  PRIZEP  =  ZIPPER   —   Giving us:  OMONZI

Clue/Question:  When taking photos of Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier, it was tough to – – –

Answer:  ZOOM IN

(Before I read the Clue/Question, I thought they were talking about Superman!  Silly me.  I love these historical Jumbles.  Jeff always does a great job on them.

Here’s the strange thing about today’s clue words.  “Zipper” does NOT appear on the ralis95 clue word database, so one might think that it’s a new word.  But, the jumble “prizep” comes up in my Tags, indicating that we have had “zipper” before!  Maybe, it appeared in a Sunday Jumble, because he doesn’t do the Sunday ones, and he doesn’t always read the email notifications that WordPress sends out when I add a new post.  But, besides “prizep” I also have a Tag for “pprize”, which could only be a jumble of “zipper”, so we must have had this clue word at least twice before.  Perhaps on another Sunday.  Well, today is a Monday, so I’m relatively certain that it will be entered into the world famous database today!  Unless ralis95 is a button-fly kinda guy, who has a thing against zippers!  LOL!

The other three jumbles came up as new.  And, the answer letter layout was a respectable jumble, considering it was only six letters long.

This Jumble is about a month early.  History.com has Chuck breaking the sound barrier on October 17, 1947.  I always considered Chuck Yeager to be like our first – unofficial – astronaut.  He kind of set the tone for all of our early astronauts.  Fun cartoon of the reporters/photographers.  This cartoon should resonate with ralis95, as he has a history in the aeronautics field.  Good Monday morning, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
