Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/17/18

Don’t be distracted by criticism.  Remember, the only taste of success some people get is to take a bite out of you.”   —   Zig Ziglar

(Unfortunately, too many of these great life’s lessons quotes are read way too late in life!  Maybe, we should be pushing for positive quotations classes for our children.  Impressionable minds could benefit from such, to prepare for, and counter, the negativity they will surely encounter later on in life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/17/18

Visual Description:  Shingle minded task.

OTMTO  =  MOTTO,  FUTFS  =  STUFF,  LAGIOE  =  GOALIE,  NARPYT  =  PANTRY   —   Giving us:  OTTOSTFOAIPNY

Clue/Question:  The old roof was constantly in need of repairs.  The owner had to – – –

Answer:  STAY ON TOP OF IT

(Good pun!  And, one that I should have seen much faster.  Duh!  I guess Paul – the Jumble Champion – has nothing to fear from me!  At first I was thinking the first word was STOP and the third word ANY.  I asked myself what else could I do with the Y, and I came up with STAY.  Then the rest – and the pun – fell into place.

No new clue words today.  However three of the jumbles do appear to be new, with “narpyt” having been used before.  I thought “lagioe” was a great jumble, but I got “goalie” rather quickly.  Not a lot of six letter words have four vowels, and I guess it is now ingrained in my memory banks.  The answer letter layout was a great 13-letter jumble.  It threw me for a few minutes.

Nice exterior domestic scene cartoon.  I thought that the word “situation”, in the dialog, was going to be key to the answer.  But, it took me some time to . . . nail  down the answer.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
