Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/13/19

No difficulty can discourage, no obstacle dismay, no trouble dishearten the man who has acquired the art of being alive.”   —   E.W. Wilcox

(Sounds like a very positive woman, that Ella Wheeler Wilcox!  This was a fun solve.  I loved the abbreviated author name!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/13/19

Visual Description:  Ruminants ruminating on running.


Clue/Question:  The larger member of the deer family hung out with his cousins until he – – –


(I love it!  It’s an awesomely stinky pun!  I’m not sure how many of the younguns would get this.  If you grew up watching Western movies, and TV shows, like I did, you’re very familiar with “vamoose”.  American cowboys often mingled with Mexican vaqueros, and they borrowed/bastardized the Spanish word vamos, which means “Let’s go”, and came up with vamoose.  There is also vamonos, which I think is just the more formal vamos, but I always remember the Mexicans in the movies saying “Vamonos, muchachos!”

All of today’s clue words already reside on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “livat” definitely having been used before.  Kind of ironic that one of the clue words is “meadow”.  The answer letter layout was a super twelve letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.  The quotation marks and the avoidance of the word moose were the biggest clues in getting the answer.

Great wildlife scene cartoon.  I love how the moose is looking at his wrist watch.  I suppose it could even be a an I-watch!  A very fun Jumble today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
