Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/08/19

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature.  It will never fail you.”   —   Frank Lloyd Wright

(I wonder if ol’ Frank wasn’t partially Native American!  He did show a great reverence for nature, in all that he designed/built.  I’m betting he was more native American than Elizabeth Warren!  Oh, Liz.  That was truly a boneheaded move on your part.  Hopefully, we can move on from it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 02/08/19

Visual Description:  Improving the ride.

PITNE  =  INEPT,  BANCI  =  CABIN,  RHATOX  =  THORAX,  GEAHIO  =  HOAGIE   —   Giving us:  INTCANTORAGI

Clue/Question:  After inflatable tires were introduced, it didn’t take long for them to – – –

Answer:  GAIN TRACTION

(From looking at today’s stats, so far, I’m guessing I’m alone in thinking that today’s final answer was a toughie!  I got a little hung up on the second word.  There were the right letters for ROTATING, but that left me with CANI.  Then I thought the second word might be ROTATION, but I was short an O.  But still, I brought down the G, by changing the C to a G, and from GANI I saw GAIN.  Finally, from INTCATOR I got TRACTION.  Whew!

I do believe we have a new clue word today, in “hoagie”.  It’s similar to goalie, in that it’s a six letter word with the same four vowels.  Jumbles like this always throw me.  Anyway, ralis95 can add “hoagie” to his world famous clue word database.  We’ve seen the jumble “pitne” before, but the other three are new.  The answer letter layout was diabolical, in my estimation.  It kept me spinning my tires, for a few minutes.

Great old-timey cartoon.  Not sure if this is the 19 teens, or 19 twenties.  Maybe earlier?  But, the old cars look like classic stink bombs!  Great way to end up the work week.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
