Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/02/18

How beautiful the leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.”   —   John Burroughs

(No relation to Edgar Rice Burroughs, but a cool dude nonetheless.  He was born and raised right up the road from me, in Roxbury, NY.  And, he really loved the Catskill region.  He had some very influential friends of the time, like John Muir, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Jay Gould and Teddy Roosevelt.  Not too shabby.    Check out the little YouTube video below.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/02/18

Visual Description:  Specific digits and punctuation.

AZDDE  =  DAZED,  WHONS  =  SHOWN,  DAANSL  =  SANDAL,  SUDJTA  =  ADJUST   —   Giving us:  DEDSONNDADS

Clue/Question:  When the 1, 3, question mark and exclamation point met, they discussed – – –

 

Answer:  ODDS AND ENDS

(A very smart pun!  How could you NOT like it?  It made me smile.

None of today’s clue words are new, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  They’ve definitely used “whons” some time in the past.  None of the jumbles stumped me.  The answer letter layout was a well thought out jumble.  None of the answer words jump out at you.  However, the answer wasn’t a big head scratcher, for me.

Cute cartoon.  Jeff has used animated numbers and such, in the past.  I’ve never asked, but who comes up with the cartoon’s dialog, David, or Jeff?  Or, is it more of a collaborative thing?  It’s only taken me 10 years to ask the question!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yesterday’s Cryptoquote Spoiler drew more queries than the Jumble did.  I’m not sure if that means that yesterday’s was harder for some, or that the Cryptoquote is getting more popular.  You folks who do the Jumble only might want to check out doing the Cryptoquote.  It’s fun.   —   YUR
