Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/10/21

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on  an equal or greater benefit - Motivational Spring

Every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.”   —   Napoleon Hill

(Kind of the abridged version of the quote in the graphic.  A fairly popular sentiment, like the ones about closing doors and opening windows, and making lemonade from lemons.  We’re always better off trying to look past the negative of our hardships, because there are positives to be found . . . every day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BULLIONHEIRS

(At least until the Internal Revenue Service catches up to them!  They always seem to take their cut, one way or another.  For forty years, or so, it was illegal for U.S. citizens to own gold bullion.  It’s been A-OK since 1974 though.  Don’t ask me the logic behind that earlier period.  It must have something to do with those damn Liberals!  LOL!  Actually, it had to do with the curtailing of hoarding during hard times and war, etc.  Yes, I Googled it.

All old favorite clue words today.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “sslho” in the past.  None of the jumbles tripped me up any.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave a thing away.  I had to resort to writing out both the consonants, and then the vowels, in alphabetical order, before I could see the pun.  And, it took a few seconds to see BULLION instead of BILLION.

Fun cartoon!  I like how Granny and Grampa stored their loot in a wooden chest.  Kinda like pirates!  Probably a cedar hope chest.  This couple couldn’t have possibly hoped for anything like this though.  Hey, there might be some big value in those Hummels on the shelf too!  Super Saturday Jumble, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
