Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/03/19

You don’t know what pressure is until you play for five bucks with only two in your pocket.”   —   Lee Trevino

(One of my all-time favorite golfers.  I was around for his first major win, the 1968 U.S. Open, at Oak Hill Country Club, in Rochester, NY.  Back then, people exiting the tournament would give you their day pass, and you could go right in.  My friends and I went up to the club house and refreshment tents and got autographs from the golfers who had finished for the day.  I wasn’t able to get Lee’s, but I did get Arnold Palmer’s and a bunch of other pros, including Bobby Nichols and Charles Sifford.   Charlie was the first African American to play on the PGA Tour!  I’ve held onto that day pass with all the autographs on it all these years.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 03/03/19

Visual Description:  In flight service.

LEEAWS  =  WEASEL,  LANFUT  =  FLAUNT,  HURNCC  =  CRUNCH,  EEIDLY  =  EYELID,  CNEEMA  =  MENACE,  SALYCS  =  CLASSY   —   Giving us:  WSFTRCHEEIEALS

Clue/Question:  The distance between NYC and L.A. in a passenger jet is 2,500 miles – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (2-letters)  (3-letters)  “(4-letters)”  (5-letters)

Answer:  AS THE CREW FLIES

(Another great Sunday Jumble!  And, a great stinky pun!  Even though “as the crow flies” is more of a rural expression, I think most of you were able to figure it out.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites again.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, with only “hurncc” having definitely been used before.  I was in the zone this morning, so I got all of them right away.  The answer letter layout was a splendid fourteen letter jumble, but again, I was in the zone.  So, the answer just came to me.

Great cartoon of an airliner.  The flight crew are the main characters.  There are a few passengers.  You can see the overhead bins.  But, the star of the show is the refreshment cart!  All the drawers and bins, with the urn of coffee and the cans of soda and juice.  It looks like the one attendant is holding boxes of sweet rolls.  Fine cartoon and a fine Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
