Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/18/19

You know you’re old when you notice how young the derelicts are getting.”   —   Jeanne Phillips

(Maybe better known as Dear Abby II!  AND . . . when college freshmen all look like they’re twelve years old!  I used to be a baby face.  Used to be.  But, now that I’ve lost some weight . . . all of a sudden I have wrinkles.  No fair!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/18/19

Visual Description:  Feasting on the high seas.

TUFEL  =  FLUTE,  GHUSR  =  SHRUG,  ENTTAN  =  TENANT,  GONULE  =  LOUNG  —   Giving us:  FLTSHUTETLOE

Clue/Question:  They enjoyed the cruise’s all-you-can-eat buffets – – –

Answer:  TO THE FULLEST

(It so easy to do, folks! Besides the classic buffets, there are strategically placed food stations throughout the ships.  You could literally eat all day long . . . if you physically could.  When I was a young man,  I could.  But nowadays I fill up a lot faster, and my metabolism is a lot slower.  And, then there’s the drinking!  So, even though the allure of food and drink – whenever you want – is out there, it can’t be the primary reason of cruising for me anymore.

I cruised through all of today’s clue words, as none of them were new.  All of the jumbles do appear to be new though.  The old trick of making the jumble look like a two syllable clue word did not trip me up today!  The answer letter layout was a very respectable twelve letter jumble.  I thought it did a nice job of disguising the final answer.

Very amusing cartoon.  The expressions on the stuffed diners are priceless.  The passenger standing at the food station is sheepishly asking for two lobsters!  And, beyond the server, on the horizon, is a tiny classic sinking sailboat!  So, the Jumble is complete.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
