Reasoning with a child is fine, if you can reach the child’s reason without destroying your own.”   —   John Mason Brown

(Nothing easy about today’s quote!  It took a little work to get this one.  I picked up on YOU and YOUR before WITH and WITHOUT.  The Y had to be the A, because the P looked really good to be the E.  This is our first quote from J.M. Brown.  So, we welcome John Mason Brown to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WON“-DOLLAR BILLS

(I hope no one let the dash/hyphen throw them.  It was kind of extraneous.  But, it’s still a good stinky pun.

There were no new clue words today, but they were words we haven’t seen in a while.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  It took me a little while to see “loaded”.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic fourteen letter jumble.  I was kinda seeing WON right off, but I got distracted.  Then, I saw DOLLARS, and forgot about WON.  I wrote out BLOWSLIN, finally saw WON again, then figured out BILLS, and the pun!

It’s nice to see Jeff giving equal time to the ladies!  Maybe he figured I wouldn’t get up on my soapbox, about the evils of gambling, if they were women!  LOL!  I got no beef with friendly games.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
