Answer:  ABOVE SUSPICION

(Or lake-scape, I guess.  The poor pup!  He gets the blame, and you know he’s not about to get any leftovers.  This is why I’m not a big fan of sea gulls.  They are sneaky, annoying scroungers.  And, of course, they are noisy as heck.  But, they serve a purpose, as all nature’s creatures do.  Nice stinky pun though.

All of the clue words have been used before.  However, all of today’s jumbles came up as new.  It took me a little time to get through both “sinufo” and “bicers”.  The answer letter layout was a very eloquent fourteen letter jumble.  I thought it did a marvelous job of hiding the final answer.

Nice little beach scene.  But, they omitted the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  What a shame.  I still feel really sad for the dog.  Dumb bird!  LOL!  The dog above looks somewhat like my Wally!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/01/19

The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.”   —   Ray Kroc

(When I was still a young lad, we had local burger joints that we were all happy with.  Then these big chain, fast-food companies came in with their low prices.  The prices were low because their portions were smaller, their quality was dubious, and because big companies can benefit from an economy of scale.  I think the first fast-food burger I tried to eat was at the New York World’s Fair, probably in 1964, maybe ’65.  I had to spit it out!  I was used to a hamburger – remember them? – that came to you naked, and then you put whichever condiment YOU WANTED on it.  This fifty cent-piece sized *burger* had ketchup, mustard, pickles and onions on it!  I was horrified!  Who wants all that crap on their burger?  I hate pickles, and I loathe mustard.  The “milkshake” was also a huge disappointment.  Way too thick, and flavorless.  Thank God for french fries, or else I might have starved that day.  I was SO glad when the big fast-food chains finally started letting you order it your way!  This appears to be the first Ray Kroc quote to come up in the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  So we welcome Ray to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
