Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/25/21

Who Was Catherine the Great? - Catherine the Great True Story

A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache.”   —   Catherine The Great

(It looks like our Cryptoquote friends and our Jumble friends were on the same page today!  Well, okay, they’re usually – literally – on the same page anyway.  But they’re both about big winds!  Catherine was a tough cookie, and she ruled Russia for 34 years.  She admired Peter The Great, and she did a lot to modernize Russia.  She was also a big patron – matron? – of the Arts.  And, yes, she did have a lot of lovers.  Good for her!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Ever Play Hurricane Golf? – intothegrain.com

Answer:  BLOWN OFF COURSE

(Very good stinky pun!  Sports Jumbles are always some of my favorites.  All of today’s clue words were pretty much old reliables, so I was able to get them right away.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “sflsio” before.  The answer letter layout was a strong fourteen letter jumble.  Without the great cartoon, its dialog, the clue/question, and the final answer slots, this might have been a tough solve.  But as it is, it was pretty simple.  No complaints.  Shouldn’t try to play golf during a hurricane!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
