Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/28/19

We gain the strength of the temptation we resist.”   —   Ralph Waldo Emerson

(We need this quotation in order to maintain our New Year’s resolutions!  I hope it’s not too late for you guys.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.   Happy 83rd Birthday to Alan Alda!  You’ve outlived Ralph!  And, Congrats on the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award!  They couldn’t have given it to a better guy.   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/28/19

Visual Description:  Vociferous off-road ve-hicle.


Clue/Question:  The spare tire didn’t always fit in with the other four tires and often felt like a – – –


(Ohh!  A literal/figurative pun.  And, there seems to be an air of originality here as well.  In that case, I don’t think this should be called a stinky pun.  This blogger approves of this bogger.

Nothing to report to ralis95, today!  They are all old familiar clue words.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “rayhi” having definitely been used before.  A very nice 10-letter answer letter layout jumble.  It did a fine job of camouflaging the answer.

Cute animated cartoon.  It was actually a little distracting.  I don’t like to look at the cartoon until after I’ve un-jumbled the clue words, and written down the answer letters.  But, talking tires have a way of catching my eye!  Fun Monday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I thought I was on the mend, as of last night, but when I awoke this AM the knee was – somehow – locked, and it feels worse than before!  Cold compress did no good.  I’m switching to heat.   —   YUR
