Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/07/20

We choose to go to the Moon - Wikipedia

History is a relentless master.  It has no present, only the past rushing into the future.”   —   John F. Kennedy

(Jack said a lot of wild things while on those pain meds.  Besides going to the moon, I think he wanted to add another ambitious endeavor to that Rice speech, but he spaced out a bit and said:  “and do the other things”.  Er . . . what other things, John?  But, he was on a roll, and he made it sound like those were the exact words he wanted to say.  He was selling it.  Sold, American!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  IN THE STICKS

(WAY out in the booniesOut past East Jesus!  As my Dad used to say.  I think Mom too.  To Hell and gone.  Anyway, it’s a fer piece back to the big city, for these slickers.  They look like good sports though.

Not a new clue word to be found.  Three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “ccnies” sometime in the past.  I actually got “hiatus” right away today!  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  But, I don’t think this gave you guys too much trouble.

Fine campsite cartoon.  A pup-tent, and a babbling brook, and a deer hiding behind a tree.  A very bucolic setting.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
