Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/01/18

October’s poplars are blazing flaming torches lighting the way to winter.”   —   Nova S. Blair

(I figured it probably had to be Nova, as none of the other remaining – unused – letters made much sense.  I’m not familiar with her work and I could find no bio on her.  Regardless, we welcome her to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  And, a Happy 94th Birthday to former President Jimmy Carter!  Such a noble and honorable man!  God bless him.     YUR

    I see it says Nova Bair (no L). — YUR


    Maybe your newspaper messed something up. Mine was fine. — YUR

    “Flaming”, not blazing. B in October = code letter K. First code letter in flaming is N, which must = F, and G=M, not Z.

    You are correct, Mel! I probably could be excused for the Z, but I really should’ve picked up that I’d already used the B in October, and Blair. (But, I like BLAZING!) Thanks for the correction! — YUR
