No one who’s in a position of success has gotten there without someone giving them a shot.”   —   Regina King

(A very fine actress, and a very beautiful woman.  She’s been acting for a good while now.  I first remember her in movies like “Jerry Maguire”, “How Stella Got Her Groove Back”, and “Enemy of the State”.  Whenever I turn on the tube, and “Enemy of the State” is on, I just have to watch it!  It’s one of those movies like “The Fugitive” and “The Shawshank Redemption”.  Virtuous people triumphing over insurmountable odds.  But, I digress.  We welcome Regina King to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  PASTTIMES

(A time tested stinky pun!  It’s been so long since I’ve heard the word pastime used that I had to ask my wife the proper spelling.  It kind of comes off as a compound word, or perhaps a sniglet.  How do you pass time?  Why, with my favorite pastime, of course!  No wonder people say the English language is tough to learn.

Hoyt has given us another new clue word today, in “hummus”!  Our pal, ralis95, will once again have to up date his world famous clue word database.  Anyone keeping count?  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “clisek” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  Not obvious.  The cartoon’s dialog, the quotation marks and the hyphen were the big clues.

Great cartoon!  I guess for the kids, she is their great grandmother.  What a wonderful life!  She could tell those kids she dated Kirk Douglas, may he rest in peace.  Who would dispute a sweet little old lady?  LOL.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
