Not knowing you can’t do something is sometimes all it takes to do it.”   —   Ally Carter

(And, not thinking that you can’t do it is a big help also!  This is our first quote from the author of young adult fiction, like her series “Gallagher Girls”, and a whole bunch of other books.  Looks like a nice lady.  I like fresh blood!  We welcome her to the Crytoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Good pun of an increasingly vanishing older phrase.  I don’t think some of the kids today would get “DROP HIM A LINE”.  I think the Jumble is working hard to keep the old adages, idioms and sayings alive!  And, that’s a good thing.

No new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  The only one to trip me up a little was “rfaoll”.  But, just a little.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic eleven letter jumble.  I had to think for a minute, before the final answer came to me.

Nice cartoon of a couple in his office/den.  I liked the trophies and photo on the wall.  Fishing is both a lot of fun, and it’s relaxing.  The last time I did any fishing was at one of my grandson’s birthday parties.  It was at this man-made, stocked pond, and the sunnies were hitting just about everything you put in the water.  They were tiny, but the kids really had a great time.  Fun Monday pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.   If  “Dennis” looked like this I don’t think the wife would ever let him go fishing again!   —   YUR
