Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/14/21

Economist Paul Samuelson, Dead at 94

Investing should be more like watching paint dry or grass grow.  If you want excitement . . . go to Las Vegas.”   —   Paul Samuelson

(I’m guessing this would be the more traditional investing, and not the more speculative, as in day-trading.  You can’t get too caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations of the market.  You need to have patience.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 05/14/21

All old reliable clue words again today.  But all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I was able to solve them all right away.  The answer letter layout was a thoughtful thirteen letter jumble.  Nice work, David.  I kind of got the final answer by going backwards.  I saw  MADE UP, then SAW I mean WAS,  then MIND.

I was getting the feeling that the old man was the author of the story being told to the boy, and that he was speaking in the third person.  Is the boy supposed to be a young Jeff Knurek?  I mean, he wasn’t always a four-eyes . . . like me.  Maybe, right before going to sleep, someone will say:  “Lower the night canopy.”?  Someone please confirm, or refute, my suppositions.  “Same as it ever was” . . . be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
