No solution can ever be found by running in three different directions.”   —   Deepak Chopra

(To be sure.  But, choosing your direction can only occur after you have weighed the options.  Otherwise, you are just flying off half cocked.  Surprisingly, this is the first Deepak Chopra quote to appear in the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So we welcome Mr. Chopra to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  TIME OF NEED

(A simple, but very satisfying, stinky pun!  I hope all of those who find puns the lowest form of humor are sufficiently pissed off!  Life is too short, and frankly a little too sad and depressing, to not have a good laugh.  I think it’s so true when they say laughter is the best medicine.  It releases endorphins, and burns more calories than being a mope.

All of today’s clue words were – once again – familiar old friends.  But, all of today’s jumbles appear to be new.  The only one that tripped me up was “dirmel”.  It took me four or five looks before I saw “milder”.  At least I didn’t have to back into it.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic ten letter jumble.  By itself, it gave nothing away.

Fine cartoon of a town clock tower.  Looks like this could be small town Indiana.  Will Jeff confirm?  Only time will tell!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
