Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/28/20

Thomas Erskine (1750-1823), 1st Baron Drawing by Mary Evans Picture Library

That which is called firmness in a king is called obstinacy in a donkey.”   —   Lord Erskine

(It’s hard to say which Lord Erskine said this, as Wikipedia has at least six of them.  But, most likely this came from Thomas Erskine, of the later 18th – early 19th Century.  He seems to be the most political of the bunch.   The first part was easy, but then the solve got harder!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  STAND A CHANCE

(This little couple just needs to re-brand themselves, to appeal to the younger, hipper clientele.  Something like The Organic Fruit Station, or Farm-to-Table Fruits, or Sal’s Non-Ecoli Kiosk.  Okay, you might need a slightly bigger sign.  But, just work in some trendier buzz words.  If you bull it . . . they will come.

Nope to the new clue word today.  Seen ’em all before.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have seen “dosted” prior to today.  The answer letter layout was a twinkling twelve letter jumble.  I figured on STAND right off the bat, and I kinda saw the word CHANCE in it.  But, other than that . . .

Fine fruit stand cartoon.  The big booth clearly has a broader selection of fruit, but the little guy can boast Locally Grown.  But, like his female partner suggested, a different location would probably be optimal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
