Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/24/20

Is your glass half full or half empty? Science can tell us why you are  either an optimist or a pessimist | Metro News

When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup.”   —   Sam Lefkowitz

(Who???  Beats me.  This seems to be his one and only quote.  Google has him as an author, but no books come up, if you query that.  It looks like he might be a sports reporter for the Boston Celtics.  But, I’m obligated to welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club!  I think this is just part of the Thanksgiving theme.  I thought the quote was a little hokey.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Architect-Contractor Relationship: What Contractors Wish Architects Knew

Visual Description:  Building a professional relationship.

GREVE  =  VERGE,  THACC  =  CATCH,  ESSUTN  =  SUNSET,  DNORIO  =  INDOOR   —   Giving us:  VERCTCSUTINO

Clue/Question:  The conversation between the architect and the general contractor was – – –

Should you hire an architect or contractor first? Or both at the same time?

Answer:  CONSTRUCTIVE

(What a well-built pun!  Utilizing finely engineered conversation, and a smartly laid out cartoon, on a sound foundation of a clue/question.  A fine example of form following function!

Guess what, guys?  Hoyt has snuck in another new clue word today, in “sunset”.  Looks like our pal ralis95 will have to update his world famous clue word database once again.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, while we’ve seen both “greve” and “thacc” sometime before.  The only one to give me pause – as usual – was the compound word.  The answer letter layout was another terrific twelve letter jumble.  But, the clue/question led me to a very quick conclusion.

Fine cartoon of the contractor and the architect.  I liked both the blueprints and the architect’s model.  Good job, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
