Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/21/19

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”   —   Marcus Tullius Cicero

(Ohh, we finally get his full name!  With these ancient Greek and Roman philosophers, and statesmen, etc., all you usually hear are the famous single names.  Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, Euripides, Seneca, Cicero . . . Cher, names like that.  I’m not so sure how well this quotation has aged though.  It comes off a little Oprah-ish.  Let’s butch it up a bit, shall we!  If you have a brewery and the NFL Package, you have everything you need.  There you go!  I bet yer uncle could update all of the classics . . . for a price.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/21/19

Visual Description:  Roo-ing the day he said:  I do?

DONMU  =  MOUND,  TUCHH  =  HUTCH,  YNITLH  =  THINLY,  QAEOUP  =  OPAQUE   —   Giving us:  OHTTIOP

Clue/Question:  The kangaroo gave her husband a to-do list and expected him to – – –

Answer:  HOP TO IT

(An hour isn’t much time to-do much of anything.  This poor sucker is doomed!  Hey!  Where are kangaroos from?  Australia, right?!  It looks like Jeff has gotten his inspiration from down under again.  Maybe he and the Mrs. are planning a trip???

Guess what?  After yesterday’s two new clue words, today we have another one, in “thinly”.  Yes, we’re putting ralis95 back to work, updating his world famous clue word database, for a second day in a row.  Nice work, David L. Hoyt!  Three of today’s jumbles appear to be new, with “tuchh” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was okay, considering it was only seven letters long.  But, I highly doubt that anybody struggled to get today’s final answer.  I’m sure nobody skipped a beat.  The answer just about jumped off the page!

Cute kangaroo cartoon.  Eyelashes, a necklace and curly hair on the mom, and close-cropped hair on the dad.  I guess male kangaroos don’t have pouches?  I never really thought about it before.  The joeys look a little like Scooby-Doo!  I can’t tell what the one is holding in his/her little paws.  I can’t make out the list either.  It looks like it could actually be saying stuff.  That’s it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
