Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/23/19

There is no language like the Irish for soothing and quieting.”   —   John Millington Synge

(The poor bastard died at the age of 37, from Hodgkin’s disease.  I know the name, but I’m not too familiar with his work.  I think he came up in a Theater History class . . . 40 odd years ago.  We welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 02/23/19

Visual Description:  High school track and field.

NOYIR  =  IRONY,  INAPO  =  PIANO,  GDYALL  =  GLADLY,  MLUTEB  =  TUMBLE   —   Giving us:  INIAGDTMB

Clue/Question:  When the track coach’s stopwatch wouldn’t work, it was – – –

Answer:  BAD TIMING

(Oh, yeah.  That’s definitely a stinky pun.  Not a prize winner, by any means.  More of an also ran.  Guess who is never an also ran?  Katelyn Tuohy.  With this young lady, it’s never a matter of if she’s going to win.  It’s always more a matter of by how much!  I think I saw her in Walmart last week.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  And, two of the jumbles have been used before too.  Only “noyir” and “mluteb” are coming up as new jumbles.  The answer letter layout is a fine 9-letter jumble.  It did a swell job of disguising the final answer.

Great outdoor high school track scene.  It looks like the coach is trying to use a fancy digital stopwatch, instead of the old “60 Minutes” style stopwatches.  I think this is still the season for indoor track though.  I could be wrong.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
