The Wild Reed: Engelbert Humperdinck: Not That Easy to Forget

Answer:  HEAD OF LETTUCE

(It’s good to have a title!  Back in the day when I was gainfully employed, mine was Chief Cook and Bottle Washer.  I was actually kind of a jack of all trades . . . master of none!  Those days were fun.

All of today’s clue words are welcome reruns.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have definitely seen “tuseg” sometime before.  “Afdur” always reminds me of Englebert Humperdink.  Some of you will know why.  The answer letter layout was a very impressive thirteen letter jumble.  Unusually large for a Monday.  And, wonderfully cryptic.

Fine farm scene cartoon.  It looks like she may be training some new pickers.  Boy!  Since the pandemic, good help has really been tough to find.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Embrace your vulnerabilities, accept them, and forgive yourself.”   —   Angelica Monroy

(Because . . . none of us are born perfect.  And, “perfection” is an unattainable destination.  No Wikipedia page for this lovely woman, but one site says she’s an artist, a photographer, a painter, writer, musician, and a singer.  Not only is she new to the Cryptoquote, she is also our very first Angelica to be quoted at the Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome Angelica Monroy to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
