Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/13/20

Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom - The Barnes & Noble Review

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”   —   Frederick Douglass

(Just don’t confuse this for having a namby-pamby, no discipline approach to raising your kids!  Because, if anything, he’s advocating the exact opposite.  Children require limits, and limits require a measure of discipline.  Civilized societies require its citizens to be adhering to community standards.  You can still maintain your individuality without being selfish and ill-mannered.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 05/13/20

Building Trust with Your Team - Rollout

Visual Description:  Cond-ascending climber?

PHIOP  =  HIPPO,  LPAYP  =  APPLY,  BLINEB  =  NIBBLE,  YTOPTS  =  SPOTTY   —   Giving us:  HIOAPPNIESPTT

Clue/Question:  She was able to quickly reach the summit because she was – – –

Man helping a woman to up on the mountain in hiking activity ...

Answer:  A SMARTY PANTS! 

No!  Actually the answer is:  IN TIPTOP SHAPE

(I think that my Visual Description would also have been an appropriate answer, providing Hoyt could come up with seven more letters!  LOL!  Twenty letters might be setting a record though.  But, with a little tweaking of the clue/question, the answer could simply be “cond-ascending”.  Or, if the cartoon setup, and clue/question was about her beating him DOWN the mountain, the answer could be “con-descending”.  Think about it, boys.  I accept both Zelle and Venmo.

No new clue words today.  Two of today’s jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen both “phiop” and “blineb” in the past.  Impressive, thirteen letter jumble.  I thought it disguised the final answer admirably.  I guess all the P’s, and the hyphen were the big clues, for me.

Nice mountain climbing scene cartoon.  I’d be the guy down below, and my daughter would be the girl above.  Exercising in the higher elevations is tougher than ya might think!  Nifty Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
