Visual Description:  The unacceptable receptacle.

TSEPE  =  STEEP,  GDEAA  =  ADAGE,  REVANT  =  TAVERN,  PLUHLI  =  UPHILL   —   Giving us:  STATRHI

Clue/Question:  Their garbage can had seen better days, so they decided to – – –

Toter 32 Gal. Trash Can Greenstone with Wheels and Lid - Walmart.com -  Walmart.com

Answer:  TRASH IT

(Will their solid waste collection service refuse their refuse if it’s not in a tidy container?  Nah!  They don’t care.  This is really more a matter of aesthetics, and keeping up with the Joneses.  Folks don’t want to appear poor, because they have a natty trash bin.  But, there does come a time when the old receptacle either has holes in it, or its so badly dented that the top doesn’t fit securely, making it an easy target for raccoons!  That’s when you’ll really know it’s time for a new can.

Would you believe that Hoyt has found another new clue word for us?  Yep, our old pal, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database for the word “steep”.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but apparently we’ve seen “revant” before.  It – surprisingly – took me a couple looks to see “tavern”!  And, I also thought that “pluhli” was a nifty jumble.  The answer letter layout was a succinct seven letter jumble.

Jeff has done another great job of showing us the more mundane side of life.  We’ve all got to take out the trash!  And, eventually even our garbage cans need to be replaced.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/08/21

George Santayana (profile) - George Biddle | FAMSF Search the Collections

Intolerance is a form of egotism, and to condemn egotism intolerantly is to share it.”   —   George Santayana

(I should share this quote with a good friend of mine.  We both share the same political/societal ideology, except that he seems to have ZERO tolerance for others’ intolerance.  He also does not see the problems of “political correctness” and “cancel culture”.  I see both of these issues – although they’re kind of one and the same – as the leading cause of today’s extremism and ideological polarization.  Regardless of whom/where this quote originated, I feel we all have to get back to “I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”.  We have to have a certain level of acceptance of other people’s thinking.  It’s called being civil.  Can we even have a civilization without civility?  When we insist on fighting fire with fire, we risk burning the entire thing down.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
