So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great good fortune.”   —   Ruth Bader Ginsburg

(Our first RBG quotation, since I’ve been posting these spoilers!  Hey!  As Nietzsche said:  “Whatever doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger!”  They also say that: there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.  And, every dark cloud has a silver lining.  And, it’s always darkest before the dawn!  So, don’t lose hope . . . and keep at it.  We welcome Ms. Ginsburg to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy Passover/Easter/Spring Break!      YUR

Answer:  NAIL IT DOWN

(“If I had a hammer . . . I’d probably have a sore thumb!”  I generally suck as a handyman.  I can do some things.  Little crap.  And, I did use to enjoy fixing/building stuff.  But, my patience – especially with myself – isn’t what it used to be.  I’ve got a butt-load of tools, much of it inherited, but very little expertise.  I’m probably better than a number of you schmoes, but I’m far from proficient at any of the professions – electrician, plumber, carpenter, painter, auto/lawn mower mechanic, mason, gardener, etc. – it takes to keep a house standing.  But, I’m also cheap!  So, I eventually – begrudgingly – do many of the needed repairs myself.

Usual suspect clue words today.  I’m sure they’ve all been on the ralis95 clue word database for ages.  However, all of their jumbles appear to be new, though none of them gave me any trouble.  Beautiful answer letter layout.  An un-obvious ten letter jumble.

Fun cartoon of a staircase.  You can even see the nail heads from the attempted repairs.  S’about it, folks.  A Happy Passover, and Happy Easter to all who observe these holidays!  Enjoy the time with your families.  And, eat plenty of chocolate and other goodies.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
