Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/29/20

Princess Diana's tragic insight into royal life in devastating letter to  pal - Mirror Online

Hugs can do great amounts of good, especially for children.”  – – – Diana, Princess of Wales

(This was another tough one to get started.  I finally got “OF” and “FOR” first, then “DO” and “GOOD”.  After that things fell into place.  A great and positive quote, from a beautiful, positive person.  Such a shame that she died so young.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/29/20

Chiffon Margarine - "It's Not Nice To Fool Mother Nature!" (Commercial,  1977) - YouTube

Visual Description:  Outtake from a Chiffon Margarine commercial.

VOEMI  =  MOVIE,  IMLTI  =  LIMIT,  MEDATN  =  TANDEM,  TAULNW  =  WALNUT   —   Giving us:  MIELITNDEWAL

Clue/Question:  Mother Nature would finish dampening the morning lawns, – – –

Mother Nature Makes the Rules - www.creativeexiles.com

Answer:  ALL IN DEW TIME

(I love it!  Of course, I’m a sucker for homophonic puns.  And, I love nature scenes.  And, anything that reminds me of my childhood and younger days.  This reminds me of those old Chiffon Margarine commercials, from the ’70s.  “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature!”

There are no new clue words today.  But, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  For some reason, I had a lot of trouble with “tandem”.  I had to back into it.  The answer letter layout was a devilish dozen letter jumble.  No hints or clues to the final answer.  The quotation marks in the final answer slots were a big hint.  That, and the use of the word “dampening” in the clue/question.

Great cartoon, with a talking bunny, birdies, butterflies, and a floating Mother Nature.  She doesn’t look like Dena Dietrich, star of those old margarine commercials, but that was still the vibe I got.  Oh, the rising sun on the horizon was also a nice touch.  I grew up on margarine, but that’s because we were all scared of cholesterol back then.  Plus, it was cheaper than butter.  For the past 35 years I’ve happily switched to butter.  And, I’ll never go back.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
