Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/14/21

The Pubs Of Charles Dickens | Londonist

Every baby born into the world is a finer one than the last.”   —   Charles Dickens

(Boy!  Was Chuck feeling good on the day he said this, or what?!  Everybody thinks that their baby is the best looking baby ever.  But let’s face it.  Some babies are truly beautiful, while a good number of them are merely “cute”.  But through the eyes of love . . . there is only beauty.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Boys Learning Domestic Chores In Home Economics Class: About Time -  SheThePeople TV

Visual Description:  Home Economics.  (Or is that “politically incorrect” too?)


Clue/Question:  The stitching between the panels didn’t look quite right and – – –

Home Ec 1974-75 at Bradshaw Jr High #FlashbackFriday – Curious as a Cathy


(A good old stinky pun to start off the work week!  Who doesn’t enjoy a good homophonic pun?  Besides snooty linguists I mean!  I remember taking Home Ec when I was in Junior High.  I guess I was a freshman, and it might have been the first – or one of the first – years that it was offered to boys.  It was not coed though.  Just us guys, and the woman who taught it.  I was paired with a guy named Bruce, who was only at my school for a year or so.  Fun dude.  I know we must’ve learned some sewing, but I really don’t remember what we might have – tried to – make.  But I definitely remember the cooking.  Not that I remember anything that I learned in that course now, but I did enjoy it.

No new clue words today.  Unless the OED starts accepting some new five and four letter words to it, the ralis95 database may have reached its limit.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have seen both “kmisp” and “liftel” in earlier Jumbles.  I thought that “cardoc” was a fairly challenging jumble.  David’s answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  Very nicely cryptic.  Quotation marks always are a big hint.

Fine classroom scene cartoon.  I like that Jeff included the little floor pedal that you step on to make the sewing machine run.  Sewing a straight line is not easy, folks!  It definitely takes practice, and a steady hand.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
