Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/15/21

Portrait of Nye Bevan by Walter Stevens Cole, 1942 – People's History of  the NHS

We know what happens to people who stay in the middle of the road:  they get run over.”   —   Aneurin  Bevan

(Oy!  And, I was worried about Middle Eastern names, and such!  It’s hard to believe that the Welsh are even part of the United Kingdom.  Even though we’ve had a quote from Mr. Bevan before, I did have to Google Aneurin to get his last name.  I’m glad to see that he was a fellow beer drinker!  Always a good source for finding a middle ground.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 09/15/21

ATHLETES TO COMPETE IN NATIONAL UNIFIED BOWLING TOURNAMENT - Special  Olympics Indiana - Ripley Ohio Dearborn Counties

Visual Description:  Bowling with the Punsetters!

YBLOB  =  LOBBY,  LUWDO  =  WOULD,  BRRAHO  =  HARBOR,  KTCTIE  =  TICKET   —   Giving us:  LOYOLDARRET

Clue/Question:  When the last member of their bowling team arrived, they were – – –

Monroe team sets record at state bowling tournament

Answer:  READY TO ROLL

(Set ’em up.  Knock ’em down!  Set ’em up.  Knock ’em down!  Bowlin’, bowlin’, bowlin.  Keep them Jumblers rollin’.  Keep them Jumblers rollin’ . . . Naugahyde!  Been quite a while since we’ve seen David L. Hoyt in a Jumble cartoon.  Let alone him AND Jeff Knurek.  More often we see just Jeff, or Jeff and one or more of his family members.  It’s nice to see ol’ chrome dome again!  Hey, maybe David could audition for the part of Blofeld, in the next Bond film!  LOL!  I hope he’s not allergic to cats!

Monsieur Hoyt chose to use all well-seasoned clue words for this Jumble.  However, he was very careful to craft all original jumbles this day.  None of them stumped yer uncle though.  His answer letter layout was an elegant eleven letter jumble.  I found it suitably cryptic.  I think the clue/question’s leading nature, and the final answer slots were the big clues.

Great cartoon of Jeff and David – and company – at a bowling alley.  Maybe one of the boys will chime in and reveal the identity of the other two teammates.  Bowling is a lot of fun.  I usually do better after a couple of beers.  But there is a limit.  Too many beers is a formula for disaster.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
