Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/25/19

The more I see of deer, the more I admire them as mountaineers.”   —   John Muir

(I hope John wasn’t trying to be a poet here!  John, himself, was quite the mountaineer.  I’m sure there are some cranks out there that would typify John simply as a “tree-hugger”.  But, I don’t think that would bother him a bit.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/25/19

Visual Description:  What we all go through.

XYITS  =  SIXTY,  CORFE  =  FORCE,  WNIMON  =  MINNOW,  RAWTDO  =  TOWARD   —   Giving us:  SITFEMIOTWA

Clue/Question:  He tried on the pants he wore on his wedding day, but it was a – – –

Answer:  WAIST OF TIME

(Yeah.  I definitely cannot fit into a size 32 waist anymore.  But, I’ve come down from a 38, and can squeeze into a 34.  Most of it is a weight issue, but there is also an issue of shifting.  I now have a bigger problem with my jackets, because of my shoulders and chest.  We are not static creatures.

No new clue words today.  But, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I only had a modicum of difficulty with only “xyits”, but it just took a few seconds – not 60 – to see the real word.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic eleven letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  It was mainly the quotation marks that clued me in to the final answer.

Cute domestic cartoon.  For half a second, before reading the cartoon, I thought this was going to have something to do with feet!  The bare feet just stood out for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
