Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/18/19

Actually, true love is often about trying to teach someone how to be the best version of themselves.”   —   Alain de Botton

(Can’t argue with that.  This is our first quotation from Mr. de Botton, so we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/18/19

Visual Description:  Kinda reminiscent of “Newhart”.


Clue/Question:  The remote bed and breakfast allowed the newlyweds to be – – –


(Excellent stinky pun!  One of the best Jumble answers of all-time, in my opinion.  So much to like about today’s puzzle, from the clue words, to the great cartoon, to the great punny answer.

We do have a new clue word today, in “midst”!  It took a couple of looks before seeing that one.  Our good buddy, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database.  All of today’s jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive – 14-letter – jumble too.  By itself, I don’t think it gave anything away.  I think the quotation marks and the hyphen, along with cartoon’s dialog and the clue/question, is what enabled me to get the answer right away.

The cartoon offered up a lot to like too.  The old guy in the flannel shirt and Wilford Brimley mustache.  His faithful, nosy cat.  The floral wallpaper under the window.  And, the view out the window is fun, with the pine trees going up a mountain, and a small lake, and the rocking chair on the porch completes the scene.  Great Friday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I found it sad to read that Mary Frann, who played Bob’s wife Joanna on the show, died at the tender age of 55.  Such a shame.  This spoiler is dedicated to her memory.   —   YUR
