Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/21/21

Hollande pays tribute to Nobel winning holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel

Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it.  We must protect it by changing the world.”   —   Elie Wiesel

(A simple Cryptoquote to start the week!  How can we change a world that seems to be increasingly hateful and polarized?  We can try to counter all the negativity with love and understanding, but when the various haters, and guilt mongers get under our skin we’re more likely to react in kind.  So, it becomes a vicious cycle.  We all need to check our emotions, and try to reconcile with those who we find offensive.  Always making demands, and shaming people into insincere apologies, is only making matters worse.  Wake up, people!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 06/21/21

Why go to an orthopedic doctor for back pain? | Orthopedics Associates

Visual Description:  Sick . . . and Tired of Waiting For You!

EBBIR  =  BRIBE,  VECTO  =  COVET,  MEDYAR  =  DREAMY,  LUCONK  =  UNLOC  —   Giving us:  BRECODRANOK

Clue/Question:  The brace that the doctor prescribed to ease his spinal pressure was – – –

Causes of Low Back Pain | Lumbar Disc | UPMC HealthBeat

Answer:  ON BACK ORDER

(Ooh, I hate when that happens!  I’ve been in this guy’s shoes before, many times.  I first injured my back when I was only 18.  And, I had to have a lumbar laminectomy to correct a herniated and torn disk, when I was 19.  Ever since then I’ve had recurring bouts of back pain, and even worse sciatica!  That pesky slipped disk keeps reminding me just how human I am.  After the last bout of PT it has slipped back into place, and I’ve been mainly pain free.  Knock on wood!

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, however we have seen “vecto” before.  The only one to slow me down was “medyar”.  I was kind of looking for it to be a three syllable word.  But I didn’t have to skip it or anything.  The answer letter layout was an elaborate eleven letter jumble.  It obscured the final answer very well.

Fine doctor’s office – reception area – cartoon.  The poor suffering guy, holding his back, and the message on computer screen made for a pretty quick solve.  Hopefully, he won’t be waiting “Day After Day”, because I’m certain that he is so “Tired of Waiting . . .For You”!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
