Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/08/20

A torn jacket is soon mended; but hard words bruise the heart of a child.”   —   H.W. Longfellow

(I didn’t pick up on this being a Longfellow quote until I was about 3/4s done!  Teach your kids right from wrong, but don’t use words that make them feel stupid.  They stay with them a long, long time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy Birthday, to my beautiful baby sister, Debbie!  She is one year behind Kevin Bacon!  LOL!   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/08/20

Daily celestial challenge Tuesday - Animal Kingdom — Steemit

Visual Description:  Masticating manatees.

PUREP  =  UPPER,  GYNTA  =  TANGY,  DIZCOA  =  ZODIAC,  SICAFO  =  FIASCO   —   Giving us:  ERTGZDIA

Clue/Question:  To eat the seagrass, the manatees – – –

Florida manatee boating deaths rise | AMI Sun

Answer:  GRAZED IT

(Not really the most biting of puns.  More of a nibbling, today.  We cant always be champing at the bit for the mega-stinkers.  Sometimes we just have to settle for a light munching.

No new clue words again.  But three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “purep” sometime earlier.  No stumpers today.  The answer letter layout was a conservative eight letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.

Cute cartoon of an aggregation of sea-cows!  I’m guessing the middle one is the mommy, and the lower one is the baby.  They are not the most attractive of mammals, but they’re very gentle creatures.  I know that they’re endangered in Florida, but I don’t know all that much about them.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
