Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/11/21

How Washington Irving Awakened Rip Van Winkle | by Patrick Parr | The  Startup | Medium

Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortunes; but great minds rise above them.”   —   Washington Irving

(One of America’s earliest, and greatest, writers!  We know him mainly for his short stories, such as “Rip Van Winkle” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, but he also wrote a number of acclaimed biographies on Christopher Columbus, the prophet Muhammad, Oliver Goldsmith, and a five volume one on his namesake, George Washington.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cleared and Ready for Takeoff: New York City Week - Central Park (repost)

Visual Description:  Mr. and Mrs. Ed.

VAWEE  =  WEAVE,  GEHED  =  HEDGE,  CCNILI  =  CLINIC,  NTCREH  =  TRENCH   —   Giving us:  EHDCITH

Clue/Question:  The horses had been married for years and liked being – – –

Advancing with Watercolor: Darks against Lights “A Hansom Cab” - YouTube

Answer:  HITCHED

(And, what a hansom couple they make!  Yeah.  That’s right.  Two can play at this game.  LOL!  Maybe her name is Daisy.  And though they didn’t have a stylish marriage, Ed could afford a carriage.  And, they do look sweet, pulling down the street, with a couple from Kalamazoo!  Thank you!  Thank you!  I’ll be here all week.  Try the veal!

We continue with all classic clue words, today.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have unquestionably seen “vawee” and “gehed” before.  For me, they were all gimmes today.  The answer letter layout was sinch . . . at seven letters.  Dollars to donuts we’ve seen this final answer a time, or more, before!

Great cartoon of a hansom cab, likely driving through a city park.  The Brits call it a cab, while we – correctly – call it a carriage.  Why can’t those Limeys learn proper English???  I really like it when Jeff draws horses.  Especially talking ones!  He gives them so much character!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
