Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/19/21

Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Long-Lasting 'Gift' : NPR

Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.”   —   Anne Morrow Lindbergh

(I had to add Anne’s name to my Tags, but it seems we have had one of her quotes before, back on December 30, 2008.  I wasn’t running the Cryptoquote Club back then, so today we welcome Anne Morrow Lindbergh to the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/19/21

International Wedding and Event Planner, UK & Caribbean | Everything You  Need to Know About Being a Best Man | Benessamy

Visual Description:  The best man being supportive.

LYODL  =  DOLLY,  CEEEM  =  EMCEE,  SLUAWR  =  WALRUS,  PLAGOL  =  GALLOP   —   Giving us:  DOLMEEWRGLO

Clue/Question:  The husband-to-be who was dressed and ready for his wedding was – – –

Best Man Duties: Everything You Need to Know | Shutterfly

Answer:  WELLGROOMED

(A very dapper Jumble pun!  I don’t think the hyphen was necessary in this instance, as the words were not placed in front of the noun.  I’m the furthest thing from a grammarian, or any qualified linguist, but since it looked a little funny to me I looked it up.  And, that’s what I’m seeing.

None of today’s clue words – three legitimate and one made up – are new.  Two of the jumbles appear to be so, but we have seen “lyodl” and “ceeem” in earlier Jumbles.  The EMCEE said Hello DOLLY, and Paul sang I am the WALRUS.  And, when they were done they all GALLOPed  off the stage!  Maybe Ken can use the clue words differently.  The answer letter layout was an elegant eleven letter jumble.  Not sure if the hyphen actually helped me – LOL – but I was able to see the final answer right away!

For about a half second, I thought that Jeff might be being politically correct, and was giving us a gay wedding.  But then I just figured the one guy was either the best man, or a groomsman.  I wouldn’t be upset to see a Jumble featuring a same-sex wedding/marriage, but I’m not sure how it would play in Peoria!  And, fortunately, I don’t think The Jumble is published in Afghanistan, so . . .  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
