The glory of each generation is to make its own precedents.”   —   Belva Lockwood

(Belva?  I really had no clue which way to go with this first name.  But, this made for a surprisingly challenging Cryptoquote!  I could see THE, EACH, IS, TO and ITS right off the bat.  But, I had to work for the rest of it.  We welcome Ms. Lockwood to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HARBOR A GRUDGE

(I like this one!  A great groaner of a pun.  I haven’t heard anyone use the phrase harboring a grudge in some time, but it’s a fine phrase.  Jeff could have drawn any harbor, but . . .

All of today’s clue words are current residents of the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  However, all of their jumbles appear to be new.  I’d say that “guava” is probably the most exotic of the words.  But, I was able to see all the words right off the bat.  The answer letter layout is a beautifully cryptic thirteen letter jumble.  It disguised the final answer very nicely.  The cartoon’s dialog, and the clue/question led me to an immediate solve though.

Great cartoon of feuding tugboat captains, on Sydney Harbor.  You see Jeff’s usual attention to detail.  The Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  I also like the tug’s little portico for water to drain out.  Very entertaining Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
