Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/09/20

Britain's first modern prime minister | Inside Story

Everybody should have an equal chance – but they shouldn’t have a flying start.”   —   Harold Wilson

(Older Brits definitely should remember this name.  Harold was the Prime Minister of Great Britain from 1964 to 1970, and then again from 1974 – 1796 oops 1976.  As an American, I know him mainly from the Beatles song “Taxman”!  This appears to be the first of his quotes to be used for a Cryptoquote, so we welcome Harold to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When they visited Arizona’s famous canyon, the family had a – – –

Visit the Grand Canyon

Answer:  GRAND TIME

(Yes, it’s Monday, folks!  We’ve got to e a s e into the work week.  A lot of us are still a little groggy from the weekend.  With football games and election results, etc., I’m sure it was an emotional weekend all around.  Be thankful that the guys took it easy on us this morning.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends, yet they all came with brand new jumbles!  Unlike yesterday, I ripped right through them without hesitation.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It wasn’t obvious, but, for me at least, the final answer was.  It was another one of those omission things.  You know, you almost never hear American kids say:  We had a grand time!  For them everything is:  So fun!

Fantastic drawing of a family visiting the Grand Canyon.  Everybody seems to be appropriately dressed for the occasion.  And, it looks like they’re staying properly hydrated.  And, most importantly, no one is standing too close to the rim!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
