Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/18/19

Overcome the notion that you must be regular.  It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary.”   —   Uta Hagen

(Great quote!  Primarily a stage actress, Uta also did some television and a few movies.  She’s best known for originating the role of Martha in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”, on Broadway.  I hear the movie “The Other” is excellent, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen it.  The synopsis I read reminded me a little of “The Bad Seed”.  Boy, that was a creepy scary movie!  At least the original one was.  I don’t know about the remake . . . that I never knew was made.  We welcome Ms. Hagen to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 12/18/19

Visual Description:  A largely profitable business venture.

GIGNO  =  GOING,  CUHNB  =  BUNCH,  TIRREE  =  RETIRE,  LHIMUE  =  HELIUM   —   Giving us:  GNBUCRREHU

Clue/Question:  The food truck parked along the side of the road was able to – – –

Answer:  CURB HUNGER

(This is a wonderful pun!  Not stinky at all.  Not unless you consider the smell of gyros, falafels, cheese steaks, burgers, dogs, etc., etc. to be stinky!  Food trucks, of all ilks, are big business these days.  My son, Bob and his wife, who own Eats & Sweets in Lafayette, CO, have had a food truck for about a year and a half now, and it’s a good money maker for them.  There are plenty of street fairs, school events, private events and the like where they are always welcome.  Not everybody can make it to their shop, and it’s a good way of getting your name out there.

Strangely we have a new clue word today.  I never would have guessed that the guys hadn’t used “retire” before.  But, it is not on the current edition of the ralis95 world famous clue word database, so that makes it new!  I was able to see it right away though.  The jumble I had the hardest time with was “lhimue”!  I had to back into “helium”.  I guess the jumble just threw me.  I was a a little inert coming up with it . . . and I don’t feel noble about that!  The answer letter layout was a fine ten letter jumble.  I was able to see the anagram for CURB in it, and that helped me with the final answer.  That let me know I needed the H and U.

Great cartoon of a friendly neighborhood food truck.  They usually do have some kind of theme.  My son’s sells wraps, sandwiches, soups, salads and of course ice cream.  Dine well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
