Semi-Father’s Day Cryptoquote – 06/20/21

Fran Lebowitz Hates Wearing a Mask More Than You Do - WSJ

Never allow your child to call you by your first name.  He hasn’t known you long enough.”   —   Fran Lebowitz

(Known for her books . . . not for her looks.  Just the opposite of yer uncle!  I think my dear departed Dad was prettier than she is.    But she was born and raised in Mo-town, NJ!  And, she had mega problems with Algebra, just like yer uncle did.  Maybe, she’s my older sister?  Nah!  This might be the closest thing to a Father’s Day quote that Rebecca has ever given us!  She seems to have her issues, so we’ll take what we can get.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  BRIGHT SONSHINE

(Okay.  A pretty stinky pun!  I’ll admit it.  But, even the snooty types can forgive this, because it’s Father’s Day!  The day when Dad jokes are A-Okay!  Even expected.  I guess the future’s so bright . . . they gotta wear shades!

One of those days where all of the clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new!  I didn’t struggle with any of them though.  The answer letter layout was a phenomenal fourteen letter jumble.  Beautifully cryptic!  If it weren’t for the quotation marks and hyphen, and all the visual clues, this would’ve been a much tougher solve!

But, the intense sunshine, and both father and sun wearing sunglasses, and the sheen coming off of the car, led me to SON-SHINE.  Then the BHTGRI got me to BRIGHT.  A little surprised NOT to see a “J” on the front of that coupe.  Maybe the guys have been told to cool it with that sort of thing.  Well, I hope that David and Jeff, and all the other great dads out there, have a wonderful Father’s Day!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
