Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/13/18

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”   —   George Sand

( . . . in return.  I also believe that this what every non-sociopath desires.  Kind of a universal epitaph.  Cool lady.  Found a way to work around the sexism of the era.  A real rule breaker.  This puts me in mind of my theme song.  Well, one of them, at least.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 12/13/18

Visual Description:  CIA?  NSA?  MI6?  Mossad???

WRAPN  =  PRAWN,  LASIA  =  ALIAS,  BRGIEG  =  BIGGER,  SLEUUF  =  USEFUL   —   Giving us:  ANASBGGUSU

Clue/Question:  When the spies securely placed the hidden listening device, it was – – –

Answer:  SNUG AS A BUG

( . . . in a rug?  That was one of the things my parents would say to us when they tucked us in bed, at night!  Snug as a bug in a rug!  Kids love things that rhyme.  And, some things have a way of staying with you your entire life.  Funny, huh?

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  I guess David’s father is taking a little break.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new.  But, we’ve definitely seen “lasia” and “sleuuf” in the past.  “lasia” tripped me up a little . . . again!  I kinda had to back into it.  I’m a little out of it this morning.  Woke up around 4:40, couldn’t really get back to sleep until a little after 6:00.  Blew past my 7:30 alarm, and didn’t come to until 8:50.  Just one of those days, I guess.

Fun cartoon.  The ol’ bug in the smoke alarm bit!  I wonder who they’re planning on spying on.  I like the black outfits and the comms.  These could also be corporate spies, I suppose.  Just another example of how the expectation of privacy is quickly becoming an obsolete concept.  Be well and do good, friends.  Even if no one is watching/listening.)   —   YUR
