Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/23/19

There is no pleasure worth forgoing just for an extra three years in the geriatric ward.”   —   John Mortimer

(“Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today.  And don’t worry ’bout tomorrow, hey, hey, hey.”  Listen to our old friend John, folks!  We welcome John to the Cryptoquote Club, today!  Today’s Cryptoquote goes nicely with the Thought for Today:  “What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn’t much better than tedious disease.”   —   Alexander Pope  Live while you can, people.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/23/19

Visual Description:  From up on high.

NYIWD  =  WINDY,  SRIUV  =  VIRUS,  TBEERT  =  BETTER,  CIDEKW  =  WICKED   —   Giving us:  WIYVRSBEEIED

Clue/Question:  They decided to build their nest near the summit because they liked the – – –

Answer:  BIRDSEYE VIEW

(Crystal clear stinker of a pun, today!  Nothing to throw me off, at all.  Today, I could “see for miles and miles and miles and miles, and miles.  Oh yeah.”  Thanks to everyone for their help with yesterday’s answer.  Like Mark Knopfler once famously sang:  “Sometimes you’re the windscreen.  Sometimes you’re the bug.  Sometimes it all comes together, baby!”  With yesterday’s Jumble . . . I went splat!  But, “I get by with a little help from my friends.”

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  However all of their jumbles appear to be new.  Regardless, I breezed through them all.  The answer letter layout is a lovely twelve letter jumble, that I think did another masterful job of disguising the answer.  The total Jumble just clicked for me today.  The cartoon, its dialog, the leading nature of the clue/question, and the layout of the answer slots – with the punctuation – made this an automatic no-brainer for me.

Amazing cartoon!  Beautiful vista, looking over mountains, trees, and a river, all from a lofty perch.  Plus, I always enjoy talking animals.  Eagles have great vision, and they pretty much command the skies.  Lots of fun, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
