Opera is a magic scene designed to please the eyes and ears at the expense of understanding.”   —   Lord Chesterfield

(I never understand what the heck is going on in an opera.  And, I’m not really a fan of a lot of the singing that goes on in them either.  I much prefer classical music, played by a nice philharmonic orchestra, or the ballet.  But, to each their own.  This appears to be our first quote from Lord Chesterfield, so we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  CARRIED ON AND ON

(Wait!  Who “carried” who?  Seems like the horses did all the carrying.  The cowboys just ran their mouths!  And, it looks like their conversation bored the poor horses.  Good Jumble.  Just a so-so pun.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Nothing for ralis95 to do today.  All of the jumbles are coming up as new.  It took me some time to come up with “fiasco”, but I – thankfully – didn’t have to back into it.  I just skipped it and came back to it.  I saw the other five right away.  The answer letter layout was a great fourteen letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  I figured the last three words had to be ON AND ON, and from the RARICED I was able to come up with CARRIED.

Nice cartoon of the cowboys and their horses.  I liked the long and winding trail too.  A fun Sunday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
