Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/01/19

New Year’s Day.  A fresh start.  A new chapter in life waiting to be written.”   —   Sarah Ban Breathnach

(Second quote in about a week from the lady with the made up name!  Apparently, the Breathnach part is Gaelic for Welshman.  Maybe her ancestry is part Welsh and part Irish.  Writers adopt pen names for reasons only they know!  Maybe her “fresh start” began with creating her pen name!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/01/19

Visual Description:  Future migraine trigger?

GALEE  =  EAGLE,  GHITM  =  MIGHT,  TUTIFO  =  OUTFIT,  SINFIH  =  FINISH   —   Giving us:  EAGGHTOTFNI

Clue/Question:  They’d never put up wallpaper before.  It took them a while to – – –

 

Answer:  GET THE HANG OF IT

(Okay.  I get it.  Baby steps.  It’s the first day of a new year, some of us might be a little hungover, yada yada yada, so let’s make this a gimme.  It’s okay.  We know they’ll get more challenging as time goes on.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites, and one of the jumbles – “galee” – has been used before.  The other three are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  The cartoon and clue/question set this one up perfectly.  This is one of those that most could probably solve without even unscrambling the jumbles.

Fine cartoon.  Hanging wallpaper is definitely harder than most people think.  That paper though!  Way too dark, way too busy.  It’s also going to make the room look smaller.  But, they’ll learn!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
