Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/23/20

Nashional Treasure: A Celebration of Ogden Nash | Rye, NY Patch

People who work sitting down get paid more than people who work standing up.”   —   Ogden Nash

(I had a really tough time getting this one started.  I seem to have a problem recognizing PEOPLE for some reason.  The Sunday ones are supposed to be a little tougher though.  Right?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    To this day, Speak Low, written with Kurt Weill, is one of my all-time faves.

    Wes…Mine too. I have many a rendition of it in the collection of 78’s and 33 1/3’s that my Father left me…It’s a haunting melody, but one not too many people are familiar with. Check this out…it’s campy, and overly melodramatic…but if you close your eyes and just listen…you don’t notice!

    As for Nash, I consider him a mentor…And one of my favorite lines of his, his retort to Dorothy Parker’s famous “girls who wear glasses” line….”Girl who’s bespectacled…May not get her nectacled”…gets me every time! 🎶🙋🏻‍♀️
