Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/30/19

Always get married early in the morning.  That way, if it doesn’t work out, you haven’t wasted the whole day.”   —   Mickey Rooney

(Very funny quote, from a guy who was only married about . . . mmm, eight times!  We either had this quote, or a similar marriage quote of his, sometime before.  He lived a nice long life, and he was a performer from age three, ’til almost the day he died!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 01/30/19

Visual Description:  Jeff, Kathy and the pooches.

OGYOE  =  GOOEY,  SAHHR  =  HARSH,  WTREET  =  WETTER,  ANNPIK  =  NAPKIN   —   Giving us:  GOOHRWTTNIN

Clue/Question:  The guitarist came up with a new melody, but didn’t think it was – – –

Answer:  WORTH NOTING

(A lilting, musical pun!  I wouldn’t call it stinky.  If Dick Clark were doing a “rate-a-record” the kids would say:  “It’s got a good beat and you can dance to it”.  Although, if Jeff is composing something along the lines of a Wilco song it might be a little difficult to dance to.  Well, okay.  Maybe a slow dance, or something a little offbeat.

All of today’s clue words are oldies but goodies.  However, all the jumbles came up as new.  None of them tripped me up any.  The answer letter layout was a fine 11-letter jumble.  It was cryptic enough to make getting the answer a bit of a challenge.  My initial reaction was that it might be GOING something, but there was only one G.  Fortunately, the leading nature of the clue/question helped me to see the punny answer.

Nice domestic scene of Jeff and Kathy’s life.  Jeff better put some shoes on!  It looks like one of his little buddies is looking for a walk.  He better bundle up, ’cause baby it’s cold outside!  Be well and do good, friends.  Stay safe, folks.)   —  YUR
