Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/13/20

MY WORLD...AND WELCOME TO IT (NBC 1969-70) – Rewatch Classic TV

Let us not look back in anger, or forward in fear, but around in awareness.”   —   James Thurber

(I was first exposed to the wit and wisdom of James Thurber, at age 12, via the half hour sitcom “My World and Welcome to It”, starring William Windom.  It only ran for one season, but I thought it was brilliant.  I wonder if I could find episodes of it somewhere?  Today’s quote really resonates with me.  I’m always trying to tell people to wake up, and read between the lines.  The past is done.  Living in fear is pointless.  Work for meaningful, positive change.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/13/20

This Japanese Grumpy Cat Is the Fiercest Feline of Them All - ABC News

Visual Description:  Badmouthing cats, huh?!!!

CNUHH  =  HUNCH,  KNYID  =  DINKY,  THEAGR  =  GATHER,  MISEIL  =  SIMILE   —   Giving us:  HNHDINGTSII

Clue/Question:  He saw the cat’s tail and pulled it.  He shouldn’t have done that – – –

Cat Signals for Expressing Happiness and Mood

Answer:  IN HINDSIGHT

(Not exactly the punniest of Jumble puns, but it was solvable.  I guess a cat’s tail is located on it’s hindquarters.  Probably, that’s the connection to “hindsight”.  But, there are things to like in this Jumble.

The clue words were all familiar old friends.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  However we’ve definitely seen “cnuhh” before.  The answer letter layout was an enjoyable eleven letter jumble.  I did not find it obvious.

Nice mom tending to son’s wounds at the kitchen table scene cartoon.  The cat looks like it’s still pissed off!  Most cats don’t like their tails being pulled, but some actually like it.  My Mom had a cat named Rudy who liked having his tail pulled.  He was a big mush!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
