Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/17/19

I’ve always loved the idea of not being what people expect me to be.”   —   Dita Von Teese

(The author’s name was so puzzling to me.  So, of course I Googled her.  Apparently, Heather Renée Sweet – her given name – is also known as the “Queen of Burlesque”.  This gives more meaning to her quote, and it also explains why I chose this photo.  Oh!  This also means that we welcome Dita Von Teese to the Cryptoquote Club.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/17/19

Visual Description:  Trouble down-under?

KNIDE  =  INKED,  TPEGU  =  GETUP,  ARTNUT  =  TRUANT,  LCIHNF  =  FLINCH   —   Giving us:  INGTTUTIC

Clue/Question:  It was time to get a new lawnmower because the one they had wasn’t – – –

Answer:  CUTTING IT

(I’m hoping mine can be repaired.  I hit a root, like I almost do every week, and the darn thing came to a dead halt.  I tried a few times to restart it, but to no avail.  I’m a little weird, in that I enjoy cutting the lawn.  It’s great exercise, and it gives me time to think, without interruption.  Sometimes I get so lost in thought, that when someone comes to tell me something, or honks their horn, I jump about a foot in the air.

Surprisingly, there were no new clue words today.  I really thought that “getup” might be new.  To me it’s not really a word, it’s two words.  But, the mysterious keepers of the compound word have deemed it a compound word.  Technically, I had to back into it.  I saw it, but dismissed it.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  I really liked “artnut”!  The answer letter layout was a pretty good jumble too.  But, even without the G and T, from “getup”, it was no problem getting the final answer.

Great cartoon though.  I hope they disconnected the spark plug!  I don’t know why, but I was getting an Australian vibe.  Did any of you guys think Aussie too?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
