Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/21/20

Interesting Inspirational Quotes: Funny Daily Quotes

Grandchildren don’t make a man feel old; it’s the knowledge that he’s married to a grandmother.”   —   G. Norman Collie

(Very funny!  And, very true.  Strangely enough, I could find no bio on the man.  But, I did turn up a little info from a portion of an obituary from the New York Times, from May the 26th, 1967.  Seems he was a well known newspaper editor for Philadelphia and New York newspapers.  It said he was 66, so he would’ve been born in 1900, or 1901.  Unfortunately, some of the online quotation images contain a photo of J. Norman Collie.  A completely different fellow.  Anyway, we welcome G. Norman Collie to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 04/21/20

Visual Description:  “Better Days”/”Glory Days”.

TOMOT  =  MOTTO,  HXSIT  =  SIXTH,  BILFUA  =  FIBULA,  AARMCE  =  CAMERA   —   Giving us:  OTTSTHFIBCERA

Clue/Question:  When he said his favorite old t-shirt still fit him, it was a – – –

How Bruce Springsteen's 'Born to Run' Captured the Decline of the ...

Answer:  BIT OF A STRETCH

(A better stinky pun, today!  And, it’s a phrase that I frequently use.  Sometimes, I’ll go with more than a bit of a stretch, when I think that something is obviously false, or a lie.  But, who amongst us hasn’t stretched the truth a little, from time to time?

No new clue words today.  Maybe we’ve maxed out?  Three of the four jumbles came up as new though.  We’ve definitely seen “tomot” before.  The three vowel words almost always take at least an extra look.  “Aarmce” did for me.  But, just a second or two.  I saw “fibula” immediately, because that’s the only bone I’ve ever broken in my life.  It happened when I fell on the ice, and sprained my ankle severely, back on 01/11/11.  A date which will live in infamy . . . for me.  The answer letter layout was a nifty thirteen letter jumble.  Again, nothing obvious about it.  The cartoon and the clue/question just set up the final answer perfectly.

It looks like that’s a “Born In The U.S.A.” t-shirt.  Far from my favorite Bruce Springsteen song.  I really didn’t know about Bruce before “Born to Run”.  But, after it came out, and to this day, I don’t think you can beat his first three albums.  So much angst, grit and urgency, and they just rocked!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
