Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/23/20

Alexandre Dumas (père) | Random Phoughts

Kings will lose their privilege, as stars which have completed their time lose their splendor.”   —   Dumas, “Pere”

(This could apply to our Donald Trump.  He’s not actually a King, of course, but he seems to think that he is.  It looks like Rebecca got a little inventive with the author’s name!  Alexandre Dumas, the great 19th Century writer, was often called “Père“, which – strangely enough – is French for father!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 06/23/20

Women are buying more expensive watches than men, Watches of ...

Visual Description:  Buy and fly.

FONET  =  OFTEN,  RNIDG  =  GRIND,  SCOREC  =  SOCCER,  NTYMIU  =  MUTINY   —   Giving us:  OTGIOEMT

Clue/Question:  She bought the new wristwatch, and then it was – – –

Breitling Women's Watches | Breitling

Answer:  TIME TO GO

(Eh!  A little too simplistic to even qualify for a stinky pun.  The best thing I can say about it is that I think it took the full combination of the buyer’s dialog, the clue/question, the final answer slot layout, and the expression on the buyer’s face, to get the answer.  I know that some of you solvers are a little less visual in solving these Jumbles.

Unless this has come up on some Sunday in the past, I believe that we are seeing another new clue word today, in “soccer”!  It will soon be joining the other Jumble clue words on the world famous ralis95 clue word database!  Two new jumbles, but we’ve definitely seen “fonet” and “rnidg” in the past.  The answer letter layout was an admirable eight letter jumble.  By itself, it gave nothing away.

Fine jewelry counter cartoon.  Nice attention to detail.  And, I like the expression on the buyer’s face.  Not Jumble Hall of Fame material, but the Time theme ones are usually pretty easy to get.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
