Jumble Spoiler – 08/23/21

Blue Angels Pensacola Beach Air Show 2021: Updates on Friday

Visual Description:  Tanks for the memories!

ODRPU  =  PROUD,  LNATS  =  SLANT,  RHAWTT  =  THWART,  ASLIDN  =  ISLAND   —   Giving us:  ROSLTTHIS

Clue/Question:  He borrowed money to open a stand to sell his tank tops and – – –

blue angels t shirts

Answer:  LOST HIS SHIRT

(Ooh!  That’s rough.  Small businesses have a high rate of failure.  Possibly, he had the bad luck of opening his stand right before the pandemic’s lock down.  Or, maybe there was just too much competition from other tee-shirt stands.  Maybe there was too much polyester in his shirts.  Who knows?

All of the clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we have seen “rhawtt” before.  None of them stumped me though.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  By itself it was fairly cryptic.

Fun seaside cartoon.  Looks like it could be Venice Beach.  That’s always a popular scene.  I liked the kid on the long board.  And, of course the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  Not a bad Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sometimes the biggest accomplishment in life is to find yourself.”   —   Luisa Fernanda Cicero

(I thought this was a tough one, even though it did have the word THE in it.  Nothing else ended in E.  It’s a fine quote from the Latina author, who might be from Venezuela.  I’m having some problems with Google!  She is brand new to the Cryptoquote, so we welcome Luisa to the Cryptoquote Club today!  I tried getting her photo, but it wouldn’t copy over, so I’m giving you this book-cover with her photo on it.  She’s in the center of the left column.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
