Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/29/21

In a new Billie Holiday documentary, friends fill in the missing notes |  PBS NewsHour

I’m always making a comeback but nobody ever tells me where I’ve been.”   —   Billie Holiday

(Considering all the allegations of drug use/addiction, I’m a little surprised that she uttered these words.  This is almost as bad as Admiral James Stockdale’s:  Who am I?  Why am I here? moment in the 1992 Vice Presidential debate!  Of course he was attempting to be ironic and humorous, because – outside of many military circles – he was an unknown political commodity.  But a few seconds later into his speech he lost his train of thought, and came off appearing addled . . . and just plain old.  He was an American war hero, but the poor guy was just out of his element.  Thankfully, both Al Gore and Dan Quayle did NOT try to make political hay of his flubs.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 05/29/21

Computer Key Board Cartoon - ClipArt Best

Visual Description:  Keyboard convo.

ALYNM  =  MANLY,  CABHE  =  BEACH,  FYLOST  =  SOFTLY,  VOLIJA  =  JOVIAL   —   Giving us:  MNEHOTJI

Clue/Question:  The hyphen could see the person typing words and was anxious to – – –

Answer:  JOIN THEM

(I think the hyphen should be happy he’s NOT the Caret symbol!  That’s probably one of the least used keys, on my keyboard at least.  That and the Tilde and Acute/left quote key.  Whenever I use single quotes I always open and close with the lower case one with the double quote key.  Y’all know I hunt and peck, right?  I took typing in high school, but only so much of it resonated with me.  I was never much for . . . using the force!

All familiar old clue words today.  I can hardly wait to see what scenario Ken is going to work up with these words!  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new.  However, we’ve assuredly seen both “cabhe” and “volija” in past Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a snappy eight letter jumble.  More than adequately cryptic!

Fine cartoon of a semianthropomorphic keyboard.  Look kids!  I was able to use the hyphen!  Looks like the typist could use a shave.  So could I, for that matter.  So, I guess I better wrap things up.  Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, folks.  Bear in mind the sacrifice that so many of our military personnel have made for our country.  Try to show some appreciation for that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
